    I've used this a lot on my truck restoration, makes nice cuts, and works much better than a saw!

    It`s much easier to stay on the line with the shear than it is with my jigsaw. This is a good addition to my home metal shop

    Just got done raising the transmission tunnel up 3 inches and had to fab up a cover on the rear. The shear worked great. Got a nice moon shaped cutout with a 5 inch diameter. Distortion was mild, flattend the piece out with a couple of two by fours and welded it into place.

    I have put a 100,000 miles on it already. I made up a two and half foot pedestal and bolted it to the cement floor. The cuts are straight and clean with no sharp edges on the stainless I am using.

    When my shear arived, I first had to partially disasemble and reassemble it because of several loose parts. Once I had fixed it, I noticed one of the screws that adjusts the blade was broken and stuck in place. This must have happened while it was being initially assembled, because the paint had been applied over the broken screw, making it even more stuck. This prevented me from being able to adjust the blade. When I tried to cut a sample piece of 18 gauge mild steel sheet, the blade warped after cutting only a half inch into the sheet and was totally ruined. I immediately returned the shear and won't be buying from Eastwood again.
    A great time saver. (Posted on 10/30/12)

    We purchased this Economy Throatless Shear for our company's Engineering protoype shop. It works very nice for curved or straight cuts. Metal distortion from shearing the material is minimal. This along with with the brake we purchased at the same time, allows us to make prototype parts in house. This saves much time and money over sending out simple parts to a job shop.
    Very versatile (Posted on 3/6/11)

    Between the 30 inch shear, brake slipo roll mahine and this handy tool I can do tons of work with aluminum on my reverse trike project. Another great tool from Eastwood, well worth the cost!
