Tennsmith Foot Shear
Tennsmith squaring shears offer precision shearing and rugged construction at an affordable price. The shear frame, bed and cutter head assemblies are constructed of heavy-duty cast iron. The shear bed is machined and then surface ground to precision tolerances to assure an accurate working surface.
These shears feature triaction, ground-alloy tool steel blades, both the upper and lower blades have a 2° edge relief and the lower blade has an additional 1° face relief for maximum material penetration with minimum effort. Triaction blades help to prevent material movement while shearing and prolong 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. Also, the shear bed features an additional truss bar for maximum rigidity and precision adjustment.
The shear is available in a foot powered, hydraulic or air powered design.
