The Metalcraft Practical Punch and Shear Tool is a great 2 in 1 guillotine for steel strip cutting and a metal punch tool that will easily punch 3mm diameter holes in steel strip upto 3mm thickness.
The hole punching feature complements the riveting capability on our Practical Riveting Bending & Rolling Tool so that metalwork can be joined together quickly and easily. By placing the steel bar in the slotted and specially machined and hardened punch block and smoothly pulling back on the handle you can quickly and easily punch fixing holes without the need for a powered drill which can tricky to use on curved flat or non flat sections.
When used as a steel strip cutter you can feed mild steel strip into the aperture between the specialy hardened large and small blades and you simply push the handle away from you to produce a neat cut in complete safety.
These handy metal work tools are also supplied with a special measuring bar that will enable you to achieve consistently accurate cut lengths of steel and also ensure holes can be punched accurately relative to the end of a steel strip or to a neighbouring punched hole.
