Back to the whole what I want from Santa thread.
I would like some bench shears, however, I am not seeing what I’d
I am thinking of something more like the older guillotine paper
cutters. I’ve looked for some and even bought one off ebay and it
didn’t stand up to the 22 gauge copper I was trying to cut. It pulled
apart. I am still considering attaching the components to and new
hardwood block. I’ve also looked at ones at the standard jewelry
suppliers and they seem short/small. I don’t understand how they can
cut a 12" sheet (or larger) in half. They show rollers so I am
assuming you move it through in 4" to 6" chunks but it makes me
wonder how you can get a straight line.
I’d like to hear input on these types of shears. I also would the
economy shears from contenti be adequate for a small shop?
Thanks for you input
