The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

You can never have to many tools or machines that might make your life easier in my opinion. My problem would be if it said 16ga. max I would think it would handle 14ga. and on and on.

Nice score.

I think I`ve met the limitations of every single tool or machine I own. It`s either capacity or shape which is the culprit. Once you go past those limits, you make a choice to possibly ruín the tool. My stash of pos tools is long gone and nowadays my quality tools are used for what they were designed for. Most will out-live me for sure.
When I still had my blacksmith shop, I was killing tools for a living...

I`ve used it a few times now and decided it needs TLC... I love this thing but it cuts like crap. Since I can never fix something without tearing it down for a complete overhaul, I tore it down...
Lower blade is in great shape, upper will be off for sharpening next week.

I`ll tear it apart in the next weeks or so for inspection and adjustment. Maybe it will reveale a thing or two.
I`d love to see the 132ft shear too...
I'd like to see the trailer you'd haul it on
