These double-cut shears have a unique way of cutting metal and plastic that prevents the finished piece from wrinkling. The tool actually makes two cuts at once with a 7/32-inch waste piece between them. The tension of the cut is absorbed in this strip, leaving the other pieces flat and even. The KL-200 can cut mild steel up to 18 gauge; stainless up to 20 gauge; and plastics and laminates up to 3/32 inch. It can slice 300 inches per minute, according to the manufacturer.Price: $285 / COO: U.S. /
