Reliantt Brand foot shears offer precision shearing at an affordable price. They are suitable for shearing aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, plastic and lead, ideal for precision shearing of mild steel up to 16 gauge.
This RTFS series sheet metal foot shear consists of two models that have a capacity of 52” & 40" wide sheet metal. Each stomp shear comes standard with high carbon chromium blades and have multiple cutting surfaces so the blades can be turned for longer useful life.
Spring tensioned sheet metal hold downs are standard on both models to reduce sheet lifting when shearing at full capacity. This ensures straight cuts and longer blade life. 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.
RTFS 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 holddown feet clamp the work piece securely in place and are easily adjustable to compensate holding pressure for light or heavy gauge material. There is ample clearance between the holddown 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 vernier wheels for fine adjustment, gives highly accurate readings.
Foot squaring shears are one of the industry's most accurate. They are easy to operate and offer precise shearing, long life and dependability.
