The TENNSMITH notcher, Model 16-18, is a versatile, heavy-duty bench tool for shearing, notching and piercing work. The heavy cast iron construction allows the notcher to be used to side shear six inches of material to its rated capacity; and the throat behind the upper ram is beveled on one side to permit long strips of material to pass without restriction.
Notches of more than 90 degrees can be accomplished in two operations. The upper blades can be reversed for a “nose to heel” cutting action; and the ram stroke can be controlled by means of two set screws to permit limited throat piercing and knockout operations.
