Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing cuts like butter! I have used the shears to cut the cement board panels and lap siding. A friend of mine used it once without me being there and it had jagged edges. You have to let the tool do the work. He was pushing it too hard along the piece of material. When I used it, it left beautiful clean edges. I am very happy with this purchase.

You can mount your boards and cut them in place using edges for your guide to get perfect cuts very quickly. An oscillating tool (Makita, Dremel, etc.) with a square blade is a perfect compliment for cutting the corners square or cutting a triangle hole in the corners of a cutout to start a cut. Cuts are very clean if you don't push the blade too fast through the cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cement board sheer I have cut a lot of cement board using a miter saw, but have always had a problem with the dust, which you have to be careful not to breath. The Makita cement board sheer has completely eliminated this problem for me. This is one of the best tools I know own.
