And One For The Metalworker - Bench Shear

Percy Blandford wrote a large number of books for Tab Books Inc. unfortunately in my opinion the emphasis was on quantity over quality. There were a few exceptions to this view point, "24 Metalworking Projects" was one of them. There are some nice well thought out and illustrated projects in this small volume.

A bench shear comes in handy for small sheet metal cutting and trimming and will cleanly shear small metal shafting as well. Importers regularly sell 8" and 12" units in the $100 to $200 range. If my 12" is any indication, their quality is borderline.

The following plan carefully made can easily exceed the quality of the imports for less price and more satisfaction.
