This quality shear operates with a hand bar that is separate from the cutting blade, resulting in a straight, even cut up to 12" wide without distorting the metal. The blade is curved, improving both the quality of the cut and the ease of operation. These shears cut soft metals up to .040" (18 gauge), thick and other non-ferrous metals up to .025" thick (22 gauge), and mild steel up to .020" thick (24 gauge) The drop-off gauge holds metal securely without marring the surface, and is infinitely adjustable. This shear has a 15"W x 23"D x 8"H footprint.
- ferrous metals: 18 ga.
- other non-ferrous metals: 22 ga.
- mild steel: 24 ga.
Overall dimensions: 15"W x 23"D x 8"H
