TENNSMITH shears have the most complete adjustment features of any sheet metal shear on the market. The lower shear blade is bed-adjusting and the upper blade is adjustable by means of a truss bar on the cutter head.
The spring-activated holddown feet clamp the workpiece securely in place and are easily adjustable to compensate holding pressure for light or heavy gauge material. There is ample clearance between the holddown feet and shear blades to allow good operator vision for line-of-sight cutting.
The standard, double-locking back gauge, which features embossed scales and vernier wheels for fine adjustment, gives highly accurate readings.
