Table Top Shear

Accucutter Table Top Shear


Accucutter top table shearThe Accucutter Table Top Shear offers the extra precision and power of a larger commercial guillotine shear in a smaller, more affordable bench shear. Available in either a 13" or 19" size, the classic guillotine design has been modified to provide convenience and flexibility unavailable in any other shear on the market. The 13" shear is shown on the left above, and the 19" shear is shown on the right above. The shears are constructed to industrial standards, and the resulting size and mass of the shears contribute significantly to their performance. If you have worked with industrial equipment or machinery, you know that the heavier, sturdier equipment is more stable and less fatiguing to operate. The 13” shear weighs 85 pounds, and the 19” shear weighs 105 pounds. Most of the weight is in the guillotine action that is made primarily of steel. While lighter weight designs can move during use and be difficult to use, the 3001 does not have these problems. The shear cuts aluminum and plastic with little effort, but the real strength and quality of the design are evident when cutting harder materials like half-hard trophy brass. A full width cut is flat and square and may be made by the most timid operator. The 3001 Series was designed and developed by Accu Cutter and is an Accu Cutter exclusive. The shears are made in the USA entirely of American materials.


“Flip-Up Hold-Down”

Accu Cutter’s exclusive “Flip-Up Hold-Down” is standard on all standard 3001 shears. When in the down position, it automatically applies pressure to the material to facilitate smooth, accurate cutting. When necessary, the hold-down may be flipped up out of the way to permit easy access to the blades.

Reversible Action

Most people working with smaller shears prefer a guillotine shear that cuts from the “left to right“ while most people working with larger shears are accustomed to a guillotine shear that cuts from “right to left”. To accommodate both, the 3001 may be set up to cut in either direction. The direction of the action is set at the time of initial assembly and may be changed at any time by following the instructions in the Operator’s Manual. The reversible action feature is unique to Accu Cutter’s 3001.

Movable Handle

The shear handle may be installed on the left or right of the shear enabling right handed and left handed operators to use the same shear. The handle may be moved easily and independently of the shear cutting action discussed above.

Reversible Precision Drop-Off Bar

The Precision Drop-Off Bar is full width (12" or 18") and is an invaluable aid for making accurate, repetitive cuts. It has two mounting positions. It may be mounted to the top blade carrier. In this position it moves up and down with the top blade like the rear gauge on many larger guillotine shears. In upper position the rear gauge is above the material and doesn’t interfere with the material as it falls away from the shear after it is cut. It also may be mounted to the bottom blade carrier in a fixed position like the rear gauge for most scissors type shears. In this position, it does not move with the upper shear blade, but can interfere with the material clearing the machine after it is cut. It slides on two alignment rods and is locked in position by turning a knob on each rod.

Step Ruler

The typical ruler is a stamped piece of thin metal. The ruler from Accu Cutter is machined from a thick, solid piece of steel. There are six separate steps involved in its manufacture with the last being a precision grinding of the front edge to insure that the ruler is straight and true. Because of its thickness, it is very stable, and the edge will not lift or distort allowing material to slide underneath the ruler. Lastly, the ruler is stepped to place the measuring edge close to the work surface for easier reading. The ruler is graduated in 1/16th’s of an inch.

Blade Adjustment

The standard 3001 uses the same blade system pioneered by Accu Cutter on its 2001 Bench Shear. The blades are mounted with tapped bolts rather than the old fashion nut and bolt system, and the bottom blade is adjusted with set screws instead of eccentrics. A much safer, quicker and simpler method of installing and adjusting the blades.
