PRECAUTIONS ON USING THE HAND SHEAR
Beware of sharp panel edges.
The edge of the plate just cut by the hand shear
is very sharp. Take care in not getting hurt by the

PRIOR TO OPERATION
1. Power source
Ensure that the power source to be utilized conforms
to the power requirements specified on the product
2. Power switch
Ensure that the power switch is in the OFF position.
If the plug is connected to a receptacle while the
power switch is in the ON position, the power tool
will start operating immediately, which could cause
a serious accident.
3. Extension cord
When the work area is removed from the power
source, use an extension cord of sufficient thickness
and rated capacity. The extension cord should be
kept as short as practicable.
4. Adjusting the horizontal gap between the shearing
Adjust the horizontal gap between the shearing
blades (A in Fig. 2) at approximately 1/10 the steel
plate thickness to be sheared, according to the
following procedures. (Fig. 3)
(1) Loosen the hexagonal socket bolts fastening the
stationary blade. Loosen the M4 lock nut, and push
back the M4 slotted set screws slightly.
(2) From the supplied thickness gauges, select one that
is 1/10 the thickness of the panel to be cut. Thickness
of each thickness gauge is marked thereon. Insert
the gauge in between the blades, then tighten the
Start cutting only after the blade attains the proper
After turning on the power switch, wait until the
blade attains the proper speed, then start cutting.
Preserve the power cord.
Be sure that the power cord is not abraded or
cut by the sharp edge of the cut panel.
(110V, 120V, 127V, 220V, 230V, 240V)
hexagonal socket bolts very loosely. Next, use a
screwdriver to turn the M4 slotted set screws to
position the stationary blade until it hits the thickness
(3) If the space between blades is larger than the
thickness of the panel to be cut, there will be burrs
for a less than clean cut.
If the space between blades is too narrow, cutting
speed will be affected. For cutting in a curved line,
making the space a little bigger will make the cutting
(4) After adjustment, tighten the M4 nuts securely so
they will not loosen during operation.
(5) Securely tighten the hexagonal socket bolts fastening
the stationary blade.
Do not attempt to cut panels of thicknesses that
are beyond the capability of the hand shear. Doing
so will result in premature breakage of the hand
Perform the cutting operation only after the panel
is fixed securely.
When cutting thin panels, level the unit horizontally, as
shown in Fig. 4.
To facilitate smooth cutting of thick panels, if the cut-off
side goes toward the left, (Fig. 4) raise the rear of the unit
slightly. And if the cut-off side goes toward the right,
lower the rear of the unit slightly.
The hand shear uses disposable blades. Each blade has 8
cutting edges, as shown in Fig. 5. After a cutting edge cuts
400 meters of panel, cutting performance will fall. Then
use another cutting edge. After all 8 cutting edges are
used and worn, replace the blade.
