Been using this on 18 gauge stainless and it cuts it easily. Leaves the steel with some bend that needs to be straightened but it cuts quite a bit easier than a power shear. Plus it avoids a lot of waste because you can change directions and there is no middle piece that needs to be discarded.

I rate Makita above Bosch and DeWalt in terms of reliability and convenience to work with. I have few Makita drills and other tools around my sheet-metal shop and I absolutely love them. I used Bosch 1500C shear for ~10 years and so I decided to try something different so I got this Makita shear. First, it does not cut any radius, straight line only. Second, that bolt holding top blade is obstructing my view and I do not see where the line is. Hugely disappointed. It probably was designed long time ago and needs redesigning. I have to go back to Bosch shear. Nothing wrong with Bosch 1500C shear except that I heard its not in production anymore.
