Kett Double Cut Shears

Overall Rating for Kett KD-440 14 Gauge Electric Shear
(based on 10 reviews)
the straight and narrow
By Jim from alaska on March 18, 2014
Arrived in Alaska with no freight damage, kudo's to package packer. Had to make some quick cuts on 14ga mild steel ( like hot knife thru butter ). time will tell on longevity of blade life, should probably purchase an additional blade replacement set.
Pros:
it works as advertised, clean straight cuts.
Cons:
for the premium price of unit it could have included a spare set of cutting blades.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Tool thickness range limitations
By Steve from Green Valley, AZ on May 3, 2013
Have not been able to do more than a very brief test since receiving the tool but wanted to pass on a tip while I still have the opportunity. The shear seems well made and substantial but prospective purchasers should try to accurately determine the metal gauges they will most frequently cut. The cutting blades on the KD-440 must have fairly wide clearance (my estimate, about .010") to be able to cut 14 Gauge, which it does readily and cleanly. However, while progressively thinner gauges can be cut, it appears the cut quality will diminish due to the blade spacing. The only other steel I had on hand was 22 gauge and this cut resulted in about a .007" burr. I spoke with a tech rep at Kett and he confirmed this was normal and also that frequent cutting of gauges lighter than 14 0r 16 would result in accelerated blade wear. Bottom line: buy the tool capacity you will use the most, within its maximum capacity.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

kett KD-440 electric shears
By RCK from Watertown NY on March 20, 2013
They work just like advertised. I use them to cut 14 gauge steel for fabricating floors and other patches on a 68 Cougar.
Pros:
Work well and most don't say they will cut 14 gauge steel. The price I paid 165.00 is a good deal.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Three Thumbs Up!
By Karl from Sandy, Oregon on July 29, 2012
I do a lot of work with 18ga sheet metal, and so went with a model rated for thicker metal just to be safe. All I can say is this tool does a great job at a very fair price, and is made in the US, too.
Pros:
Good value and with a name brand like Kett, finding spare parts shouldn't be a problem down the road.
Cons:
None

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great US made item
By Beau from columbus, ohio on February 22, 2012
As a welder and fabricator, www.madmetalfabrication.com, I only buy and use quality US made tools. This 14 gauge capacity sheer is a welcome addition.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
