Eastwood Mini Rotary Metal Shear - EW20642

The Eastwood Mini Rotary Metal Shear is the perfect addition to any fabricator’s work bench.
• Throatless design
• Cuts in aluminum, steel and other mild metals
• Rotary design allows for both straight and curved cuts

It is precision designed and manufactured to allow for quick and easy trimming of sheet metal pieces and the rotary design allows for both straight and curved cuts. Hardened, round, cutting dies produce clean, burr-free cuts in aluminum, steel and other mild metals.

With a strong steel construction, this Rotary Cutting Shear and throatless design makes it perfect for cutting up to 18 gauge sheet metal. The handle makes it easy to operate and maneuver while cutting. The blades draw the material into the throatless body so that the user does not need to feed the material into the tool.

Maximum Material Cutting Thickness:
16 Gauge Aluminum
18 Gauge Mild Steel
20 Gauge Stainless Steel


CLEAN - Thoroughly strip and clean your metal part before coating. We recommend Eastwood Pre Painting Prep.

COAT - Apply using Eastwood DIY HotCoat Gun 11671A or the Eastwood Dual Voltage HotCoat Gun 11678.

CURE - Cure the part in an electric oven for recommended time. NEVER use an oven that is used for food.



Always wear eye and hand protection when working with sheet metal. When lifting 8 inch bench shear never place hands or fingers between blades.

Big Cutting in Small Tool! Easily Cut Metal w/ Mini Rotary Metal Shear

  • Nice, Compact cutter
    This cutter does a great job in a small space. I use mine for 18ga mild steel, and it cuts it like butter. Straight cuts are easy, and it handles curves well, too.
    The top wheel feeds the material through the cutter for you. The 'waste' material is on the right side of the machine, so when you make curved cuts they are best done in a clockwise direction. I can get about a 2" radius with no problems. Any tighter than that and you start to 'fight' with the feed wheel.
    I initially had a little trouble with it, the wheels weren't adjusted correctly and it just fed material through without cutting. There is no information in the manual about adjusting them, but an E-mail to Eastwood customer service solved the problem quickly.
