Gauge shears make metal fabrication projects and metalworking quicker, easier and safer. With them it's easy to make straight, round and irregular cuts in different metal products. Use them for roofing, flashing and cutting through layered seams. To keep your gauge shears functioning at their best, it's necessary to replace the metal shear blades when they have become pitted or lost their edge.
The shear blades' precision-ground A2 tool steel construction cut metals of up to 12 gauge. This leaves them with smooth edges, without any burrs and ready to be finished. You'll also find specialized blades for cutting wire cable, copper or aluminum. Some blades constructed of rust-resistant stainless steel cut through PVC and other plastics, non-metal conduit, and rubber hose. The blades are designed to eliminate jamming, and the reinforced cutting edge reduces chipping. In our selection of blade accessories, there are wrenches and guards to help maintain and improve the performance of your tools.
Different model gauge shears require different replacement blades. Some require a four-edged blade, which has the same top and bottom, while some have two different blades. To install these, a feeler gauge is necessary to ensure the correct distance between them. Other models require three blades: center, left and right. While these shear blades come individually, it's better to replace all three at the same time. In our selection of replacement blades, you'll also find band saw blades and cutter blades to help keep all your power tools working like new.
