This tool is strictly for cutting the following materials:

  • Aluminum, Brass, Copper sheet - 18 gauge - 0.05 inch
  • Mild steel sheet - 18 gauge - 0.05 inch

This tool should NOT be used to cut the following:

  • Material thicker than 18 gauge
  • Bar stock, round tubing, or anything other than sheet
  • Hardened or stainless steel sheet


  • You can use C clamps to clamp the sheet on the frame.
  • BEWARE of pinch points on the shear where your fingers can get caught.
  • USE GLOVES. Cut sheet metal will be razor sharp!!
  • GO SLOW. The shear will have a tendency to bite and suck the sheet in and cut a curve.
