The new Durston 12″ Guillotine Shear has been upgraded significantly from the previous model, incorporating improvements not found in any other shear of this type. Users can now cut wider material, even at 45°, thanks to its uniquely designed table and guide which allow wider sheet metal to be fed through the Guillotine without being obstructed by the main body of the machine. Durston has eliminated this problem. Other new features include an upgraded backstop with smooth bearing guides that can be tightened by hand for quick lock and release. No movement gives precise repeat cuts as many times as you need. Also new is a Square Drive System with patent-pending rack and pinion. This system ensures maximum torque is transferred right from the pull-down bar through to the blade so that all power is transferred directly to the blade, which results in maximum torque, providing a smoother cut with less force. The hardened and tempered cutting blade has four cutting edges for long service life. Simply turn the blade when it begins to lose its keen edge. see related products below Made in England.
