Harbor Freight swivel head shears review

http://www.harborfreight.com/14-gaug...15&tag=froogle

mine is the old orange color, but the P/N is the same and it looks to be the same..

1st 1 lasted about 6" before the center jaw broke.. replaced free of charge being it was the same day as purchased. paid $10 for the 2yr warranty and took a new 1 home.. this 1 has been great. I use it to cut straight lines in 18ga steel while building my hotrod, and it leaves nice clean edges.. I got it on sale for $39 IIRC, so it was approx $50 with the warranty.. had it about a year now, with a few hours of use, and it's not stopping

they have those too, and I think the jaws are the same p/n for replacements.. but pneumatics can be a pain.

instead of a thin electrical cord, there is a larger and stiffer hose. the noise from the compressor ect... certin tools just do not need to be air powered. the electric shears are not that bulky, and it's not really gaining anything by having the pneumatic version... Die grinders are 1 thing that almost certinly need to be pneumatic
