Default throatless shear

For some reason throatless shears are few & far between overhere. I`ve been looking into purchasing a Beverly but just could not bring myself to paying the Beverly price + shipping the boat achor across the globe, but I also didn`t want to go China-crap, so nothing really happened.

A few weeks ago I stumbled across a big old shear on a tool and machine site, and I bought it unseen. It weighs 125 lbs , which is a lot more than the B-3 Beverly. No Brand to be found but I did find DRGM in the casting and found out that is the code Gemany used for patented tools from 18-something up to 1952... anyway, it`s a beast. I might even call it "the Beast"

I forgot to take before pics but it was like yer average old pos tool, and the blades actually had a radiussed edge... regrinding those was a bit of a challenge but I think I got it where it needed to be. I just love bringing those old quality tools back to live.

Deutsches Reichs-Gebrauchsmuster

That was Germany's answer to a patent system. Sometimes German equipment might be lacking style but they built things heavy duty.

Not really, If it was a Beverly and had I lived in the states, I would have sent them to Beverly to resharpen. These blades were so far gone, I just started grinding surfaces flat at an angle I thought would be just about right ,untill all round edges were gone. Then I bolted the upper blade back in and started fine tuning the lower. Getting both sharp and fitted took about 2 hrs.
