Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality manual metal shear I purchased this shear to have the ability to work with out electricity. For the application it is a perfect fit. Simple to set up. Easy to use. A very heavy duty product. The only thing I could recommend to Eastwood is to have a kit available for repetitive cuts, as well as a adaption for a cut side table or catch for the parts being sheared off. As I am a fabricator i am pleased with the overall performance of the shear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manual iron worker I had higher hopes of finished results. I specifically bought this for cutting 1”1/2 x 1”1/2 aluminum angle 1/8” thick. It doesn’t seem to shear square and the cut is very jagged. Very disappointed. I will be selling this and try to get out from under it.

Questions & Answers

Will this cut square tubing and round tubing or just solid stock?

Asked by: Rolo64
Well, since it can cut through solid stock of that size, it can do so, but it will likely crimp the end at least somewhat because of the shearing action used in cutting.

Can this be used to not cut off-- but rather to notch Angle Iron on one side to allow for bending over to be welded? For instance if one is building a square frame?

Asked by: Texman
No, because the opening for cutting angle iron fits the whole profile of the metal, nd here is no open throat to allow partial cuts. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean.

Will it cut round and square tubing up to 5/8"

Asked by: johnny
Since it cut solid 5/8" square and round bar stock, I think it's pretty clearly able to cut through it, but since you're asking about tubing, which by definition is hollow, you're likely to get some crimping and bending of the ends when you cut it.

If I'm buying this specifically for shearing 4" by 0.250" A36 hot roll bar, will I have to return it? I've had bad experiences with other vendors

Asked by: Tinkerworks
A36 hot roll bar in 4" X 0.0250" (or 1/4") is a common low carbon steel. The Eastwood Manual Ironworker Metal Shear (21566) is rated to Shear up to 4" X 5/16" so you should have no issues when attempting to shear the 4" X 1/4" A36 bar stock. This is an industrial Quality machine that cut fast and easy. Replacement blades are available from Eastwood.

How is this with stainless?

Asked by: Enad1984
Technically this could be used for Stainless but it would dull the blades at a lot quicker of a rate and would decrease the thickness rating we list on our site for this unit.

Will this tool cut 2" x 2" x 1/8" square tubing?

Asked by: Jim2610
It would not fit into this tool to utilize. 5/8" is the biggest it can handle of square stock

How clean is the edge of cut steel rod?  Is the cut flat and the rod still round regardless of rod size?

Asked by: JAmesM
For the ratings we list this machine is capable of working with- it should certainly be a clean cut for all up to this material.
