I know this is an old thread but rather start here than needlessly starting another. My question is, are air shears smooth enough where I can lay a sheet of metal on a stand and cut it? I hear they're not great for curves but I get sick of cutting huge straight lines with a cutt off wheel, so for long straight and accurate lines is basically what I'd want them for. Are they ideal for this? If so, anyone vouch for the Astro Pneumatic $60 one? Advice appreciated.
