Twas the night before move in day and all through the house was unlaid carpet and an irate spouse. So I huffed, and I puffed, and I was almost in tears as I cut 3 rooms of commercial carpet squares with my favorite MALCO sheet metal shears. To my amazement they cut carpet so good I got fancy and cut a curve in the transition to the livingroom. The spouse was impressed. I did alright. Merry Christmas to all and have a good night!
