Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless It cuts so smooth and without a lot of effort. I had my director order one for my classroom at the college where I work as an instructor. I've recommended it to students as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little shear Works well for my projects using aluminum for small custom signs. Also cutting various shapes out of tin. Beats using tin snips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8-inch bench shear You definitely need a good mounting system for it, otherwise very straightforward, works incredibly well. Very good little shear.

Questions & Answers

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

The one I have looks like there is a safety hole to slide a half round peg through when shut if not in use. Do you sell this?

Asked by: JMWA
We do not sell any lock however a nut and bolt will suffice as one through that hole

I am looking for a tool to cut license plates made of aluminum. in addition to Kevlar gloves and safety glasses, what other safety features are part of this to help ensure no fingers get cut off?

Asked by: Brad
The Eastwood 8" shear will easily cut your license plates. Kevlar gloves and safety glasses are great safety items. The only other safety issues to address would be a clean work area, a level and well mounted shear, dry floors, keeping your fingers away from the blades and good common sense. When not using the shear insure that it is locked to prevent accidental injury.

I need to cut lengths from a 10 inch wide copper roll that is 24 gauge soft copper. Each length will be 46 1/2 inches long and each length will need to be very straight and the edges very flat. Will this tool work for this application?

Asked by: Maguire2020
A large shear is best for your application to ensure the straightest final piece.
