Eastwood Electric Metal Shears 18 gauge is rated 4.7368 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it! While I haven't really pushed the ability of this tool, it has been outstanding for my needs. I am fabricating an on-stage replica of a 1929 Isotta-Fraschini, and using only 20 gauge steel for the body work. The shears run smoothly and cut through the 20 gauge like a hot knife through butter, both straight and curved cuts. Very pleased with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Metal Electric Shears Item 13475 I received the cutting shears about a week ago. The shears cut about 3" on a sheet of .050 aluminum and stopped cutting. The shears were running but the shears would not cut anymore. I was able to hold on to the bottom of the cutting blade while the shears were running. It appears that something broke inside as the bottom cutting blade was not moving up and down. Sending the item back to Eastwood. By the way its made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good i bought this as i build large ice fishing huts in my spare time and i've either sheered my full sheets on a large setup, or cut all smaller pieces by hand.. not always easy to cut many feet worth per job, but this seems to be working just fine for me,, i have ordered one extra packet of replacement blades as i hear they may be a bit brittle,, and i'm thinking i may order a few more sets to have on hand,, but otherwise, it cuts very nice, very easy to use, very predictable smooth cuts and lines, clean, quiet, i did put some masking tape where the cutter would slide on the material as i like using polished metals and i don't want it scratched up,, i give this cutter,, and the replacement blades a two thumbs up and i rate it a 5! i also give the eastwood company a 5 for being very helpful over the phone and with the knowledge of the tool when i called to ask about it, nice experience all around!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with my purchase Originally purchased the air shears but realized after I bought them that I needed something I could use anywhere and not just where there was a compressor. These are great shears, probably not for a shop environment but I love them and they do exactly what they are supposed to. I agree with another reviewer who said that the jaws could be better quality, but overall these are great shears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Heavy Duty Tool I have been using the tool to cut 18 gauge cold rolled steel and it cuts as easily and fast as the video shows. I gave it 4 stars on Quality due to the cuters which seem to be really brittle. I was triming a piece, where I didn't have a full cuter width to trim and heard a small pop and no more cutter. After I replaced the cuter I have been careful to cut straight lines and it works great. I now trim with a grinder!! Overall I'm happy with the tool, just order extra cuters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Shears I have been using these shears for a few days on flashing for build projects and they work well and I have been very happy with how easy they glide through the metal and make the job so easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad Good shear but i have to agree with another review. Jaws are cheap cast metal from the part that broke. would pay more for better jaws. not bad for the price but not for shop use on the bikes we build or cars we restore they are good for very lite work.
