Metal Jacketing Shears Models 636 and 648

The metal jacketing shear is designed to cut light gauge sheet metal, plastic, or paper. Rolls of material up to 400 lbs are supported by the roller cradle. The material is pulled out under the shear blade and cut by manually lowering the blade. Metal jacketing shears are used for the protection of thermal insulation in multiple applications.
