DONT PUSH THE PEDAL DOWN!!!! 06/19/2019 10:50:56 AM

Dont push the pedal down to align the pivot pins UNTIL you have checked the clearance of the blades! Mine came to me in a crate that had a forklift run through it at some point in shipping, teetering precariously on another pallet that they had set it on and obviously roughly handled during the trip. However, this shear is a tank in its own rights and came out unscathed, much to my relief.
The opening statement is because mine was almost perfectly adjusted when it arrived. Almost. The upper blade made contact with the first three inches of the lower blade and being before I knew what was happening, I used the pedal to align the pivot pins, shaving a hairs width of blade. Literally, it looked like a hair sitting there, but I know thats enough to dull the first few inches. Fortunately, I am cutting aluminum sheet so it doesnt cause me much grief if any. Again, a good testimony to this shear being resistant to the little problems.
My only issue with this shear is the fact that I am cutting down 4x10 sheets. What a wonderful cut compared to the previous method used, but I have to hold the end of the sheet up so I can get to the pedal to depress it. Have glued some 1/8 rubber to the hold down fingers and adjusted the hold down clamp to better avoid any oops on my part with having the sheet slip while I hold it up. The slightest foot pressure on the pedal clamps the material solid and allows me to manipulate the excess sheet.
Plenty of features are included with this solid piece of equipment and the most impressive bonus- the instructions are very well written by someone who has a mastery of the language and has obviously put a few of these together.

Shear is a good value but crating was sub standard. 05/11/2018 4:29:42 PM

This is an excellent value for the money. We were able to set the unit up in about an hour and a half. The crating for this product was poor. The skids on the outside hold the feet of the machine but the center skid isn't in contact with anything. When UPS freight picked the crate up it simply bent the base board. Luckily nothing was damaged.

Great shear 05/10/2018 12:38:45 PM

Required little adjustment and we are able to shear 010 stainless sheet metal. Haven't had the opportunity at this time to go thicker but 024 aluminum is easy as well. Can't wait to convert to pneumatic.

Thanks for working with us to get this product here. We received item 2 days ago from the consolidation point and it was in good condition. Equipment is being arranged to be bolted down and used. It will make a difference in the work place.
