    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty First one I got was missing parts. Called jegs and they sent me another one. Shipper was to blame on this one not Jegs.The shear works great. Cuts clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Mounted on my bench. My first cut was awesome. No burs, perfect. Eight inch jaws. I don't know why I haven't bought this shear before. Says it will do 1/4 in flat but I'm not going to do that. It is just to good to abuse. Just a great shear!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from More China disappointment After spending a couple hours making a mount on my metalworking table to hold the shear flush with the top of the table l went to tighten the bolts to hold the shear to the mount and they are so uneven it actually pulled the shear to an angle and had to use washers to get it to set straight again. There is no way this will shear 1/4 Inch and tried 3/16 and stopped because afraid of breaking it. It will shear 1/8 in with distortion of the metal, guess I got a overpriced small sheet metal shear. So disappointed
