DISCONTINUED - See KD--442 These lightweight shears, designed for durability, cut 16 gauge C. R. mild steel and stainless to 18 gauge. Close clearance heavy duty blades provide smooth cutting action, without burring or buckling the material. The aluminum shear head curls the waste strip into a handy coil for fast clean-up, allowing maximum sheet usage. With a straight On/Off switch, the KD-242 fills the gap between Kett light gauge and heavy gauge power shears. Also available in a variable speed model KD-442.
