    Excellent point about honing the blade. I did not do that, it did not seem required, but the thing had been used for a few years, and I figured all the burrs were gone by the time I got there. New ones may be different
    CNC machines only go through the motions

      The blades on shears can usually be turned four times before they need sharpening.

        This is a different company than I got mine from but looks very similar.
        You are talking about a power shear right. Whole nuther lil animal these 3-1 machines.

        I have never seen a foot shear cut over four feetx16 gauge. And even then it can be a dance. LOL.. JR

        P.S. I have operated some 150t sheetmetal tooling as a "kid". Our larger sheer had to be 144" or more due to the 12 foot sheets. We would rip the twelve footers to our needs. I forget the size of the shear. It wasn't the most powerful. All sheetmetal tooling. I loved that job and learned some skills. 12hrs a day, four days. Yup, job #2 took up the remaining time. Driving a bobtail in Los Angeles.

        And I also had an early one of the 3-1 .

        What killed it for me was the shear. I do all my stuff here at home in 16ga. There is no way I could get it to look in the direction of the sheetmetal haha. Again, this was prolly 1995. Solly for the long P.S

          I am talking about a 3in1 machine. See my thread about first impressions of it
