The Roper Whitney Pexto foot squaring shear are easy to operate and offer precise shearing, long life and dependability. The No. 152 is provided with precise gauging and hold-downs for cutting accuracy. Maximum rated capacity is 16 gauge mild steel. It offers triple-action shearing which includes relief on both edges of both the fixed and moving blades. It eliminates blade-to-blade friction, provides “bite” to eliminate sheet movement under shearing stress and produces double penetration in the cutting action. This contributes to easier operation. The No. 152 will handle a 52″ sheet.
