Low Profile Mechanical Shears - LM1012, LM1014, LM1214

TENNSMITH's LM Series mechanical shears utilize a low maintenance design, coupled with an array of standard features for an attractive combination of high value and solid performance.

The LM1012, LM1014 and LM1214 incorporate the unique 2x back gauge system. This allows the operator to move the backstop from 0 to 30 inches in approximately 2 seconds with only two rotations of the handle. An optional digital readout is available for this system.

The LM Series shears are standard with four-edge, high carbon, high chrome top and bottom blades, independent, self-leveling hold down feet with neoprene inserts, single, continuous and jog stroke cycles, motor reverse switch, precision-machined table with hand well, dual inch/metric inlaid bed scales and non-metallic gibs.
