The list of tools that I want to own is arguably longer than the list I have for the cars and trucks I want to own. And like most car guys and gals there are some tools that are available in multiple configurations which means I may have two of the same kind of tool on the list. It makes me laugh just writing that because of the number of tools that I have 4 or 5 or more of. I have to have 10 different kinds of vice grips, who knows how many hammers, and an entire drawer of chisels. Same goes for tin snips, pliers, etc. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that there are a number of throatless shears available out there and that the different kinds are used for cutting different materials. If you are only going to be cutting one kind of material then you only need one, but if you are going to be cutting all kinds of stuff in your garage or shop then maybe you should think about getting both.
In this video from Eastwood they tell us what the difference is between their different throatless shear models so you can decide which one you need in your shop. If you aren’t familiar, throatless shears are an awesome way to cut sheetmetal into complex and curved shapes. They are a cool tool that allows for a lot of control and a clean cut.
