Absolutely worthless product. I purchased one of these in order to cut 20 & 24 gauge copper sheet for jewelry - I could purchase in bulk and then cut strips for bracelets cuffs. Having a length cutter would be handy and safer than cutting with saw or shears.
Boy, what a mistake I made. The first cutter broke after 3 cuts on 20 gauge copper sheet - the cutting wheels offset and I was unable to get them correctly aligned again. I returned the item for a replacement in hopes it was just a fluke and sure enough, the second one did the same thing. It simply imprints teeth on the metal and pinches it - no cut whatsoever.
I should have saved my money and purchased a quality Beverly shear.
I purchased this cutter for my home shop. And it cuts 22 ga metal great, very smooth and easy. However, it did not cut 16 ga sheet metal as advertised. The wheel became stuck and my helper was cut in the process of trying to remove the 16 ga sheet metal from the cutter. I opened up the cutter and there was a pin that was suppose to hold the lever to the wheel, it must have been made of some soft steel because it was not strong enough to handle the amount of pressure.
However, this was my first return on an item from Grizzly and it was fairly easy. So 5 stars for customer service, and 1 star for the cutter.
This is the first Grizzly tool to disappoint but this one has to go back. I suspect that it may work on steel sheet but it slips on 020" C260 Brass, 032" 6061 Alu, and 050" (16 ga). 6061 Alu I could push the 16 ga Alu into the cutter and it would cut, but the thinner Alu and Brass would often bend before I could push hard enough to start cutting. Once cutting, it still requires significant pressure otherwise it slips.
