The Tensilshear is an easy way to cut strips from small sheets of metal, including aluminum, brass, steel, and even harder materials.

A pair of micrometer adjustments on the back move the stop to enable you to simply push your sheet of up to 10″ wide metal under the blade until it reaches the stop, make sure it’s firmly in place, and cut off a strip.  The process can be repeated for as many strips as you need. It is a compact, manually operated unit, requiring neither electrical nor air hookup to operate.

The Tensilshear will shear strips from 1/8″ (3mm) thick aluminum or materials of similar hardness, and up to 2mm thick steel.  The hardened, precision ground blades are adjustable to eliminate virtually all edge burring problems.  The video below shows the Tensilshear being used to shear strips from 2mm thick hardened steel.
