Kett electric shear
By Dan R from Indianola, Ia. on September 9, 2012
I'm not dissapointed!
I'm very happy to have one in my toolbox again.
I have cut thousands of window openings into cargo vans over the years and wont use anything else.
Pros:Clean cut line, predictable.
Easy control of waste (no metal dust) just a easy to handle curl of metal.
