Kett Scissor Shears deliver precision cuts in a wide range of pliable materials with unique scissors action. The KD-480 Scissor Shears from Kett Tool has a stationary bottom blade and large “rabbit ear” blades to funnel thick, soft materials into the scissor jaws for a clean cut, without fouling or gouging.

The KD-480 Scissor Shears use a 5-amp pistol grip, variable speed 2500 RPM motor that cuts through pliable materials, such as carpet, carpet underlayment, foam rubber, linoleum, vinyl, woven wood fabric and chipboard. The KD-480 even handles heavy foil, light insulated wire, hardware cloth and mesh screening with ease. At 16 inches long and weighing just 4 pounds, the shears deliver a precise cut with adjustable cutting speeds that can be tailored for optimal results. All shear heads are precision made in the U.S. featuring A-2 tool steel blades for durability.

Cincinnati-based Kett Tool Co.’s KL-200 Double-Cut Shears help manufacturers and contractors conserve materials and cut costs. The shears deliver precision cuts in C.R. mild steel, stainless steel, plastic and Formica without warping or bending the original material or the finished piece.

“The KL-200 allows for ease of operation without damaging the final product,” explains Kathy Conlon, president of Kett Tool. “Metal workers in all industries will save valuable time, material and money on the job with this product design from Kett Tool.”

The Double-Cut Shears’ dual blades transfer any distortion produced in cutting to a small 7/32-inch waste strip, leaving behind material edges that are not hardened or burred to allow maximum use of sheet material. The blades’ swiping action also seals edges of coated metals.

Kett Tool’s KL-200 shears use a 4-amp straight handle, single-speed electric motor to produce straight or contoured cuts in C.R. mild steel (up to 18 gauge), most grades of stainless steel to 20 gauge and 3/32-inch-thick plastics and Formica—at speeds up to 300 inches per minute. The lightweight, maneuverable shears easily follow a scribed line, capable of cutting a radius as small as 6 inches. All shear heads are precision made in the U.S., featuring A-2 tool steel blades for prolonged durability.

The KL-200 Double-Cut Shears are available through authorized dealers.
