Default Re: Tinsmith's in frame gas tank for cantilever Schwinn.

Nice tutorial.

I'll be taking your advice on cutting down the filler "bung"

We call the tool hand tongs in the trade, but I think their official name is hand seamers.

I have that same pair of Wiss snips Dan uses.

I've had them for 24 years and use them almost daily. They'll still cut paper, and they've never been sharpened.

Wiss makes the best tin snips, I don't care what others say, Klenks, Kleins,
off brands will never touch Wiss.
No other snips can cut into corners half as well.
