Customer Questions & Answers

What blades does this take

Asked by: Karen
The shear head comes assembled with the motor and switch body.. There are no replaceable blades as in a reciprocating saw or band saw. If you damage a shear blade as in a nick or gouge, you may want to disassemble the shear head and re-sharpen the blades as needed. If you damage the blades beyond re-sharpening you should probably replace the whole shear head assembly or have Dewalt do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiki Bar Build I purchased the nibbler to help with construction of my pool side tiki bar. The nibble is easy to use, and really speed up cutting time of my tin siding and roofing. The product is high quality and light weight. I recommend it to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall good product this a great tool. I have been beating on this cutting panels off of old chevelles and the rust or clean metal cuts great its a couple of years old and broke the cutting tip I forced it to go in a coner and with it binding then it hit weld and snap, great tool!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a little disappointing I was disappointed in the ability to handle even minor fluctuations in material. We had trouble with 26 & 29 gauge steel unless you were cutting in a straight line. I was debating between this and a nibbler I think I picked the wrong tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good and bad i am using this to cut pro panel 29 gauge and this is a nice cutter but it leaves a scratch mark on the tin you are cutting. So i really do not like that part of it as i needed something this a cleaner cut but for the parts that will be covered it is fine
