  • Eastwood 8 Inch Bench Shear
Eastwood 8 Inch Bench Shear is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bench shear I bought this to shear aluminum for the blades on my kinetic wind sculptures. I am amazed at how accurate this shear cuts and how easy it is to use because of the spring in the handle. I had recently tried to use a Beverly slit shear and had to return it because it was too cumbersome to use. I ordered this shear and could not be happier. I believe that this shear would make a fine addition to any shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my studio! This shear is even better than I imagined! What a value. I am a metal sculptor and a silversmith. This fits the bill for both. It was easy to bolt it down. It cut through 14 gauge brass like it was paper. This will be a huge timesaver for me. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing more tools from Eastwood in the future. Perfect transaction from start to finish as well. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must in a jewelers workshop! This shear is amazing. I can even cut belt buckle blanks from my 16 gauge nickel silver. Anything thinner cuts like butter. Precise and easy to use. Very good quality shear, very nice price.

Can I use this shear to cut standard DIN rail?

Would this cut 1/4" Jute rope? Perhaps 2-3 at a time? I don't need it for steel

Asked by: smalia808
Unfortunately we have never tested cutting rope with this bench shear to say if it will or will not work.

Can this cut a strip of 14 gauge brass as thin as 1/8" wide? Strips would be 1/8" X 6".

Asked by: Casc
Yes, this length and thickness of material would be fine for this machine to handle.
