A few weeks ago someone posted a request for feedback on the 12"
Durston Guillotine Shear that is in Rio's catalog.
I just received mine today and I'm blown away! It's extremely well
made, solid, heavy and has a blade that is sharp on 4 edges (so the
blade can be flipped if years down the line it gets dull). This shear
cuts mild steel up to 12 gauge thick and non-ferrous metal up to 8
gauge thick like butter. This is a piece of equipment that can be
passed down for generations. I wish I had gotten it years ago.
The only problem is, I will have to fight the urge to chop every
sheet of metal I own into tiny little bits by the end of the week!
Have a great day!
