    Bought an enco 12" shear

    So i was told this will cut up to 1/8 plate. Well with the handle it is nearly impossible unless you put all you weight on it. So I took the handle off and put it in my press. Walla it now cuts 3/16 plate. And it was only 90 bucks free shipping

    Re: Bought an enco 12" shear

    I'm missing something here. Is the press pin pushing on the top beam of the shear or on the knife and the ram is just retracted?

    Isn't that the handle extending up thru the upper press beam?

    I have a 1/2 thick by 4" long piece of metal pushing on the blade (not in pic). That is just the stub were the handle attaches. I might modify and install a ram on the unit itself. I have to wait and see how much I use to determine if it is worth installing.

    Do you see any harm in this. I was going to let time tell,but if anyone knows were a flaw is please yell at me. The gauge only reads about 3.5 tons to shear the 3/16 plate

    Re: Bought an enco 12" shear

    I have the same shear. It works well if you upgrade the handle, clamp the shear and the piece you're cutting down real secure. I find that when when I shear, if I pull the handle in a quick and smooth fashion the distortion is less.

    I think it would be difficult to secure the work piece you're cutting... but if you're cutting narrow or round bars, this set up might help.

    How long can you cut with this? Never seen a shear like this in action.

    biggest cut I ever made on that shear was 1/8" thick plate, the cut was probably about 10 inches. I'm over 200lbs, so I just jump and hand onto the handle, hang on for dear life and let gravity does its work.
