To shear, material is placed in gap between small fixed blade and large lever operated blade. Operate lever smoothly and firmly to cut. (photo on Right shown with Practical PS Tool)
Punching 1/8", 3/16", or 1/4" round holes is achieved by placing flat metal strip in the appropriate size punch block. Pull the lever toward yourself or away depending on which way you have the handle. Platform is adjustable to allow for accurate positioning along the center of different widths of metal.
