  • Why Do Companies Over Rate Their Junk Products ??

    Watch the video.............. This is what happens when they do.

    They failed to tell you that you have to weigh 400 Lbs. If the handle was any longer it would be in the neighbors yard. Ha, Ha......

          The machine probably is not very well made, but he was shearing 3/4" round stock -- the stated capacity of the machine is 5/8".

            I thought the spec said .875" for round stock.

              But it will cut Chinesium up to 2 inches thick. Chinese tool made to cut Chinese steel. So where's the problem?

              Their web site says SOME of their machines are made in the USA, not all of them. And they put a "Made in USA" sticker on those. This machine does not have that sticker. Can you say Chinese?

              Make it fit.

                The website isn't very consistent. In one place it specs 2 x 1/8" angle, and in another place it specs 2-3/8 x 1/4 angle. Everything seems to list 5/8 round, however.

                The video is from 2012, so it's possible the advertised specs have changed since then. (Due to complaints?)

                  I love the part where the company told him to take the video down if he wanted a refund.

                  I never liked the idea of shearing rod, bar or angle. I've always used my horizontal band saw, it makes a lot cleaner cut. The length and size of that handle was pretty funny, that in itself shold have been a warning.

                    No,
                    The stated capacity for round is .866 as shown at the end of the video.

                      Here is another one. Same exact POS, different name. They did change the specs on this one, reduced the thicknesses. I wonder why??

                      They do mention the length of the handle being 6 ft.

                        I don't understand what good they are, even if they worked, when they leave a horribly deformed edge on the workpiece?

                          Video is 7 years old. Looks like Baileigh has updated the specs since then.

                          In my opinion, anyone who spends $600 on an imported ironworker thinking it is going to shear 2"x2"x1/4" angle is pretty gullable no matter what the website tells you.

                            My 25 ton Dake Arbor Press handle is 4' 6" long and in up position the end is 8' 6" from the floor.Its actually quite user freindly,by the time the toothed pawl ingages the end of the handle is about7' from the floor.

                              As I stated, the specs presently listed on the website might have been revised since the video was made (2012).
