This lightweight, variable-speed pistol-grip shear cuts 14-gauge C.R. mild steel and most grades of stainless to 16-gauge. Double-insulated, the 5.0-amp KD-440 cuts at more than 150 inches-per-minute leaving a clean, flat sheet ready to fabricate. Distortions are absorbed in an easily disposed of waste curl, leaving the sheet cool and free of burn, chips and burrs. The cutting blades are finest high-speed steel, which users can easily replace.
