I did a quick search of the forum and couldn't find anything on the word "beverly", so I'm asking: does anyone know anything about Beverly SS-series shears? It's supposedly just a smaller version of the B-series, but I'm not sure if it can do the same things as far as armouring goes.

Thanks!

Beverly shears are fine and all but I swear by my Miliwakee power shear. Pretty much all I ever use. If you want real over kill Dewalt makes one that will cut 10 gauge! I can cut out a circle the size of a .50 cent piece with my electric shear in 14 gauge.

I'd get a powershear, but I really want something I can take anywhere and use anywhere.

If you're not going to be doing tons of work, you could get one of these:

Small, good up to 16 ga and just $99.

Sean, i've read from a couple of different folks over on the AA that these require a little modification to work well, but once done they apparently work fine.

Ah, yes, I see:

Folks seem to think they're a good buy, considering. I'll probably get a belt grinder before I get into armoring, anyway.

Thank you all for your replies, but unfortunately none of them have answered my question. To give a little more detail, I want something capable, durable and portable, which means able to cut 12 mild and not electric. The reason I am looking at the SS is that on Ebay I've found one for a great deal less money than a B. If nobody has had any experience at all with the SS, I will probably end up purchasing it and learning on my own.

FYI, I found out elsewhere that the SS is good only for straight cuts...which means it's a no-go for armouring, at least in my book. Again, thanks for the replies and advice.
