Introduction: Free Redneck Shears
The other day I went back home from a walk around the neigborhood, and I found two pieces of steel that I know it would be useful to me.
I had to cut some sheet metal, because my car didn't pass the MOT because the battery wobbles in the engine bay, and i made a holder for the top, but, the usual shears they always make a "bite" at the end of every cut
And I came this weekend with this! Some fixed shears or whatever name they have using that metal blocks lying around
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You'll Need
3 screws and 4 nuts (at least, as the vice will hold the shear, if you want to bolt it anywhere else, it's up to you)
2 blocks of steel
a bar (any kind of metal will be better than wood)
and a wrench to hold everything in place
Step 2: Screw Both Plates
I used two nuts to secure that won't come apart as we open it
Step 3: Add the Handle
Drill your holes first
Step 4: Put in on Your Vise... and Cut!
