Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! I bought this as a less expensive alternative to a larger guillotine sheer. So far, I’ve used it to cut brass, copper, and sterling silver sheets. Cuts easily and I’m now spending less time filing edges, etc. Although it takes up space, it’s a time saver and cuts beautifully. I don’t have it bolted to a workspace yet but would recommend doing so to keep it steady.

Questions & Answers

We recently moved and I assume a bolt loosened in transport is responsible for the spring in my bench shear popping out of the fixed location on the upper blade attachment. What can we use to apply tension and re set that spring into position? 

Asked by: Sylmeister
I'm not sure honestly, I've never encountered this. Those coil springs can be very challenging to reclock and install if they have a lot of tension.

Would this be good for shearing .032” spring steel?

Asked by: Lucky1
With spring steel being a little harder than mild steel, you may wear blades slightly faster than most guys but I think they would still have long life since the thickness is much smaller than capacity. In any case, we do offer replacement blades if you can't sharpen yours or they are worn out #20456.

Will it cut 14 gauge stainless steel by 8” wide ?

Asked by: Mark
Yes, it is rated for 14 gauge stainless and 8" widths max.
Answered by: Nick BC
Date published: 2022-12-12

please clarify the cutting thickness. On the video it shows uo to 3/16 in small widths. I am wondering if it could handle 3/16 material to make a cut 26" or what is the real meanin of "small widths"

Asked by: Farm Hand
It can cut an inch or 2 of 3/16th steel.

Hi, Will this shear cut up silverware handles? Usually silverplate not stainless steel.

Asked by: Pete
Unfortunately, we strictly test for automotive use only. However, if within the specs we list on the site- this shouldn't be an issue: 11 gauge steel and 14 gauge stainless steel
