As you'll see in the pix I bought this shear in May of 2007; 13 years ago. It had never been out of the box until last week. The box had never even been opened. It still had straps around it that hadn't been cut. I remember that I bought it at a car show, I think NSRA Springfield, MO. It shows a shipping date but they actually had it right there. FWIW 5/29/07 just happened to be my 56th birthday. Maybe I was just buying myself a birthday present. I've known exactly where I had it stored on a shelf all these years and knew that "someday" I'd need it. Last week I started cutting rusted spots out of Clarence (avatar) and used this shear to cut out patch panels. WOW; this thing works really well. It has 4 mounting holes and in the pic I had two bolts and one clamp holding it to my 1" thick welding table. It was just a coincidence that two of the mounting holes lined up with two of the holes around the perimeter of the welding table. I put another clamp on it before I used it. One of these days when I build another work bench and drill 4 holes in it so the shear can be mounted/demounted any time I need it. I know it's not a Beverly but for me it's perfect. Besides I couldn't afford even a worn out Beverly. So "someday" eventually came for me. Anyone else buy a tool because they knew (thought?) that it would come in handy "someday"?
