How To Cut Sheet Metal - Economy Throatless Shear For Your Workshop - Eastwood

The Eastwood Throttles Shear is a must have in any metal fabricators workshop. See what makes this tool so unique in how well it cuts metal!

  • Another good product for the money
    So far i am pleased with this product. Mine cut well right out of the box. I have only made sample cuts, but this should save lots of time and money.
  • One of my favorites
    I bought this shear after seeing one of these Beverly-style shears in action at one of Gene Winfield's classes. Since then, I have been using it almost daily. After a few adjustments and a couple of practice pieces to get everything dialed in, this tool has done everything I have asked of it. I have cut 14ga aluminum, 18ga and 22ga steel, No problems. In my eyes, this beats snips, nibblers and the bandsaw for the bulk of what I do in my shop.
    I will say that if you are going to mount this to something, mount it higher than you would mount a vice. I found my 'sweet spot' was to have the blade be an inch higher than my elbow. This kept me from hunching over the thing with each cut, and made it easy to steer the material being cut. Your mileage may vary.
  • Throatless Shear
    I have needed one of these shears for years and decided on this one, and i am glad I did.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • A great time saver.
    We purchased this Economy Throatless Shear for our company's Engineering protoype shop. It works very nice for curved or straight cuts. Metal distortion from shearing the material is minimal. This along with with the brake we purchased at the same time, allows us to make prototype parts in house. This saves much time and money over sending out simple parts to a job shop.
  • Very good tool
    It`s much easier to stay on the line with the shear than it is with my jigsaw. This is a good addition to my home metal shop

  • 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.
  • good value for the price
    This is an imported tool. I bought it at 50% off, so how bad could it be. I took it apart, cleaned off the blue paint, regreased and adjusted the blades. It works perfectly. I got a great deal and the tool performs nicely. Eastwood should make this one here in the USA. Thanks again for great tools and service. JC
  • GREAT
    i purchased the throatless shear, it works better than I had ever thought. I don't know why I didn't get one years ago. It's a must for doing any kind of sheet metal work, a real time saver....
  • Dan
    Very versatile
    Between the 30 inch shear, brake slipo roll mahine and this handy tool I can do tons of work with aluminum on my reverse trike project. Another great tool from Eastwood, well worth the cost!
  • worth the money
    I've used this a lot on my truck restoration, makes nice cuts, and works much better than a saw!
