Tennsmith - 52" Foot Shears & Power Shear, ID#TENN52SH

MANUAL FOOT SHEARS

Models: Model 36 | Model 52 

A) TENNSMITH squaring shears offer precision shearing and rugged construction at an affordable price. The shear frame, bed and cutter head assemblies are constructed of heavy-duty cast iron. The shear bed is machined and then surface ground to precision tolerances to ensure an accurate working surface. These shears feature triaction, ground-alloy tool steel blades. Both the upper and lower blades have a 2° edge relief and the lower blade has an additional 1° face relief for maximum material penetration with minimum effort. Tractions blades help prevent material movement while shearing, prolonging blade life.

B) TENNSMITH shears have the most complete adjustment features of any sheet metal shear on the market. The lower shear blade is bed-adjusting and the upper blade is adjustable by means of a truss bar on the cutter head. The spring activated hold down feet clamp the work piece securely in place and is easily adjustable to compensate holding pressure for light or heavy gauge material. There is ample clearance between the hold down feet and shear blades to allow good operator vision for line of sight cutting. The standard, double locking back gauge, which features embossed scales and venier wheels for fine adjustment, gives highly accurate readings.

Air Powered Shears

Models: Model 36A | Model 52A

TENNSMITH power shears combine all the features of our foot shears with the advantage and convenience of air or hydraulic operation. TENNSMITH power shears are a productive addition to any shop.

The Model 52H cycles at 60 strokes a minute, thanks to its first class hydraulic system. The unit features a solenoid actuated valve, 3-hp electric motor, 10-gallon tank with sight gauge and thermometer, pressure gauge, check valve and industrial quality cylinders. The motor is protected by a magnetic starter. Other electrical safety features include a low voltage on/off switch; low voltage, shrouded, electric foot switch; step down transformer with low voltage circuit fuse; fully enclosed electrical box; and insulated reinforced conduit for all wiring.

Models 36A and 52A are ideal ways to enhance shearing productivity with minimal investment. The air shears utilize heavy-duty, tie rod-type pneumatic cylinders, which provide up to 40 strokes per minute in capacity materials. A foot-operated air valve control, pressure regulator, air gauge, oiler/condenser cups and neoprene, padded holddown feet are standard features. We recommend a maximum air supply of 75 psi for operating these shears at rated capacity. Where air supply pressures exceed 75 psi, an in-line regulator is helpful to provide pressure control. Generally, a 10-hp stand-alone compressor would be the minimum recommended size to operate these shears.
