Triple Action Foot Squaring Shears

Triple action foot squaring shears are the industry's most accurate.
They allow relief on both edges of the fixed and moving blades eliminating blade-to-blade friction, providing "bite" to eliminate sheet movement under shearing stress, this also produces double penetration in the cutting action.
Safety features include shatterproof transparent finger guards, treadle stops, and well guards.
These features contribute to easy operation, precise shearing, long life and dependability ideal for academic printmaking facilities and private studios needing to cut copper, zinc, steel and plastic printmaking plates.
These plate sheers are built to machine tool standards.
Powered plate shears are also available.
