- Eastwood Throatless Shear
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?
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.
Do you plan to ship to Europe? Thank you.
Can this machine cut the stainless steel 0.9mm?
Whel will this procuct be available again?
Will this handle .125" aluminum? I see it will handle 14 gauge (.0747 steel), so almost twice that in aluminum is doable or no?
can this shear cut thin soft metal like 22 or 26 ga copper or silver?
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?
