metal shears

I bought a good used Black and Decker model 3210 # 12 elecrical shear, I was helping my son and a piece of flat stock had a tab on the back I didn't see and I broke the bottom edge cutter, They wanted $ 75 for the little 1/2 square cutter die, I bought the HF tool they copied for $ 30. and it works just fine I use the hand snips to start a cut then finish with the Elect shear, I have clamped a piece cut straight with a shear for a guide.
