Eastwood 8 Inch Bench Shear is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My jewelry studio loves it. I just installed my 8 inch shear in my jewelry shop. It seems to be perfect. I also fabricate other things, as well, and the tin snips weren't cutting it. Very good quality and capabilities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up / works great I wanted a shear for my jewelry business and this was a good price and the company had good reviews so I bought it. So far I'm very happy with it. It cuts through 20 gauge metal like paper. Nice clean cuts and easy to use - not much strength required at all as the shear does the work. I like it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A HELPFUL ADDITION TO MY HOME SHOP I purchased this as a time saver, and it has proved to be just that. I'm working on my 1991 Camaro, doing some minor sheet metal repair, and installing a roll cage, this is very handy for making patch plates and other quick cuts.

Are the blades on this unit replaceable?  I can find replacement blades for the throat less shear on your site but not for this unit.

Asked by: CareTaker444
Yes they are replaceable, we have not yet added them to the site yet.
