Tennsmith Model 52 Foot Squaring Shear
The shear frame, bed and cutter head assemblies are constructed of heavy-duty cast iron. The shear bed is machined and then surfaced ground to precision tolerances to ensure an accurate working surface. These Shears feature triaction, high carbon/high chromium (HCHC) steel blades. Both the upper and lower blade have a 2 degree edge relief and lower blade has an additional 1 degree face relief for maximum material penetration with minimum effort. Triaction blades help prevent material movement while shearing, prolonging blade life.
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 hold down feet clamp the work piece securely in place and are easily adjustable to compensate holding pressure for light or heavy gauge material. There is ample clearance between the hold down 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.
