Product Description

Eastwood Throatless Metal Shear.

This is not your typical metal cutter. Eastwood's rugged, cast iron throatless shear allows you to make straight, intricately curved and irregular cuts in metal with ease and accuracy.

The throatless hand shear design amplifies leverage with rack and pinion gearing and an extended handle, so you'll easily slice through 14-ga. mild steel and 18-ga. stainless. Steel blades (adjustable for wear) provide burr-free cuts. Metal cutter's base has three holes for mounting this throatless hand shear on your workbench.

Eastwood Metal Shear Throatless is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5073.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shop Elsewhere The quality is very poor. Harbor freight would probably be better. Eastwood has slipped in quality. Missing hardware for handle. Casting was so poor they could not even machine the surfaces for the shear guide. All the other hardware was loose and when tightened it just made the shear bind. Would have had to spend hours to machine and adjust to get this to operate correctly. They did offer the money back guarantee. The problem is that they do not pay the freight back. Cost me $30 to shop here that I could have spent on a good tool. Sorry to say this is my last Eastwood purchase. China has ruined another good American company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good tool for the price I cannot complain about the price or the quick delivery. But the buyer needs to be aware that when it comes out of the box it may need to be adjusted before it is totally operational, as was mine. However, the instruction book is pretty clear as to how to do it, and once done it works fine for light to medium work. You are not buying a $600+ Beverly Shear and if you are going to be working at the outer limits of this shear's capability you might consider an alternative. But for $159.00 it is a great tool for the individual "do it yourselfer".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous For The Price!!! Please keep in mind this is not a $800+ Beverly shear - for the price, it is well made and I'm very pleased with my shear which I purchased a year ago now. I find I can make very accurate cuts, trimming off slivers of metal without smushing or creasing even the thin gauges. I work mainly in copper, brass and some steel sheet. I had no problem with assembly at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little shear Overall I'm very happy with its performance - a few enhancements could make it even better. 1) The handle does not store in the up right position with the blade closed - for safety. If you want it with the blade closed - the handle stick out and gets in your way. 2) I used a piece of angle iron bolted to base so I could use in a vise - making it shop friendly and keeping my benches clear for other work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fair value I can see why a person may be frustrated with this product when it arrives. It cannot be immediately used right out of the box, at least mine wasn't useable. It had to be tightened up. The bed blade had to be ground for proper clearance and the handle was very loose and needed to be shimmed. It now works very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent tool My boss bought one of these cutters for the shop. We used it for just over a year with no problems, once it was setup it took a little adjustment to the blade and had to tighten the pivot bolt everyonce in awhile. I liked it enough im going to purchase one for my own shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic! I had a rather long wait for it to get back in stock. I have been cutting 16 gauge steel for armor smithing. Cuts flawlessly, and I might say a heck of a lot better than tin snips (almost impossible to cut heavy gauge sheet metal).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You gotta have one First it looked like it could of been a Harbor Freight special, but once I started to work with it it supriesed me. Built a stand for it and mounted next to my bender machine. Now its's a valuable pace of my shop.

Eastwood Metal Shear Throatless Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: What we have here is a Throatless Shear, some people refer to it as the Beverly Shear. It's simple as that. It's a shear. It cuts metal. You can do infinite distances because there's no throat to it and you can do compound curves as the big thing about it at why it's so nice. Here I'll show you a little cut we've already made some cuts here. We'll do another cut, show you how easy it really is to use. Stick it in, you pull down and you just curve it to whatever shape you need. You want to do an inside curve. Just push it that way. You can go back this way and do a nice outside radius. You can do a nice inside curve back out, all kinds of different shape, that's just something simple but you can see how easy you can cut it.

It doesn't really distort the metal. This is just an old piece we had laying around, so you can see how nice and how useful this tool really be around your shop and make quick work of any cutting jobs you need to do.
