View Full Version : identifying beverly

I may have a line on a used beverly shear. Problem is, I can't read the model # on the plate. Anyway to identify which model it is?

I "think" mine is a #1 and the upper blade is 4-3/4 long. Try a google search on Centaur Forge Supply. They used to carry them and posted the info on the website.

i would think that you could tell by the lenght of the handle, and possibly the weight of it (whole shear) not just the handle, mine is a b3 that is the biggest and baddest of them all
shes a little old and tired but for $75.00 how could i beat that ?
sharpen up the blades and a nice coat of paint and im ready to tear some metal a new one !!

Thanks for the pointers guys. Centaur forge lists 4 1/4 and 4 3/8 for blade lengths on the 1 and 2. Of course, this one doesn't have a handle. I'll try to weigh it. Looking at it, I'd guess it's around the weight of the middle one.
dawg, I'll let you know if I can beat your killer deal you got.

Just a pointer that if the blades aren't adjusted correctly they will not cut cleanly and leave thin razor sharp "feathers" on the cut. You sharpen from the inside of the blade and use the two set screws to get the moving edge to just slide past the fixed one. When they are correct, they will cut a business card cleanly.
