I just got an email from Centaur Forge today. They are having a sale on shears, belts and grinders for those that are interested and flush with cash. I'm lusting after a set of Beverly shears. Centaur is a bit pricey, does anyone know a cheaper source? I've been really good and should deserve a new tool, don't you think? Here's the link.

I purchased the 'knock-off' throatless shear from Harbor Freight. It was $130 at the 25% off sale on
4 July 11. It, I believe is comparable to a Beverly B2. I am not an expert on shears but this one will easily cut whatever guage steel they make 55 gal. drums. I mounted a piece of angle iron on the base and clamp it in the vise for a stand.
They sell replacement blades as well.
For hobby blacksmith work, I cannot complain.
