Dual function metal working tool. This hand operated machine allows one to cut hot rolled mild metals to length and punch round holes in flat metal strip.
EASY TO USE - no pre-heating of metal required to cut or punch holes.
Rugged cam lever action allows one to punch and cut metal.
To shear, material is placed in gap between small fixed blade and large lever operated blade. Operate lever smoothly and firmly to cut.
Punching 1/8" round hole is achieved by placing flat metal strip in the slotted punch block. Platform is adjustable to allow for accurate positioning along the center of different widths of metal.
