I tried to contact the manufacturer by email to see if there was something I could adjust, but after 5 days I did not yet receive any answer. Considering this shear is about twice as expensive as a relatively good abrasive chop saw, I am electing to return the shear and purchase a chop saw instead. An added bonus is that the chop saw will cut other things, whereas the shear is a single purpose tool.
As a side note, this shear is indeed well constructed and durable. If it worked, I would have definitely kept it, but I can't justify almost $400 for a tool that doesn't perform.
It's good in a pinch where you can't make loud noise with a chop saw. It works best with 25 GA which I never use. It's OK with 20GA EQ (27 mil max), BUT 30 mil & thicker not so good, especially studs with a 1-5/8" flange.
Works well on track up to 30 mil, 33 mil maybe, but 1-1/2" track leg max.
Also studs with a wider flange lip (over 1/4") like struct 20 for example, doesn't fit well.
Bottom line: if you're using cheap 25 ga studs, and your doing a very small job where noise is a problem, this tool is for you.

This tool is awesome for an area where using a chop saw is difficult because of the noise and sparks. Do a lot of commercial work and this is a great tool for renovationPublished on March 23, 2012 by Thomas A. Smith
This is a well made tool that saves me countless hours. I've installed nearly 1000 studs and track with this tool. The cuts are clean and very quick. It keeps the job moving.Published on September 22, 2007 by Ed L.
