Eastwood Throatless Shear is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this to cut 14 gauge metal and thinner, I have to say it works great right out of the box. I was concerned if it would cut 14 gauge metal but did it with no problem. Great add to my tool collection. Been using it regularly with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this long ago! I bought this about a month ago, I used to use cutoff wheels, this tool is a hundred times faster, have cut 16 ga cold rolled flat steel like a knife through butter, straight and arcs! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another good product for the money So far i am pleased with this product. Mine cut well right out of the box. I have only made sample cuts, but this should save lots of time and money.

I just got this shear and tried a few cuts.  I am having difficulty keeping the cut straight.  The shear pulls the sheet in a counter-clockwise rotation. I have to keep pulling it to the left to keep the blade on the cutting line.  What am I doing wrong?

Asked by: Bill
Generally, this issues is caused by improper blade adjustment. Please refer to blade adjustments in the instruction manual on page 4

The cutting blade looks like it is angled. Will the edge of the cut be angled or straight 90 degrees? And can the straight cuts turn out completely straight? I need to cut sheet metal both precisely straight and into circles for my work. Info appreciated.

Asked by: Vio86
This shear will make perfect straight and angled cuts on a piece of metal or aluminum.

Can this machine cut the stainless steel 0.9mm?

Asked by: Gayan
This unit is rated to be able to cut up to 18 gauge stainless. The metric conversion of 18 gauge is 1.2mm. You should be fine to cut that thickness with our unit.

Will this handle .125" aluminum? I see it will handle 14 gauge (.0747 steel), so almost twice that in aluminum is doable or no?

Asked by: Nick
This unit will cut up to 12 gauge aluminum.

can this shear cut thin soft metal like 22 or 26 ga copper or silver?

Asked by: Metalsmither
This unit can certainly cut softer metals.

Will this cut soft steel wire that is about .48 mm thick in multiples without wrapping on the blade? Wire the thickness of a needle for sewing but softer? Cut several of those at one time?

Asked by: HandGman
Although we have never tested with wire so small I would say since this is about 27 gauge you should be perfectly fine to slice.
