The KD-446 profile shear is the latest product from Kett Tool. The company says that shear cuts profile and flat materials, spiral duct, wire mesh and more. It also creates an edge-sealing effect, which helps to eliminate kerf and waste material. Officials also claim that the shear can make straight cuts or profile cuts in metal with a radius as small as 3 inches. The tool is only 5 pounds and can cut curves or straight lines in corrugated metal, roofing, siding and more.
