  • Truck or dolly for stomp shear

    I have a stomp shear in an outbuilding that is too small to shear a 4x8 or 4x10 sheet either way, building is long and narrow. So I built a truck to turn the shear 90° and back again depending on which edge of a sheet I need to shear.

    Built a frame to set inside the shear frame.


    Hinges for the wheels.

    Added a table frame to catch the material as it come off the shear.


    Added an extended gauge (still more to do on that) to handle longer cut off than the 26'' factory gauge. Couple shocks so it drops slow when the lock is released.


    Gave it a hammered paint finish to match the shear.


    Cobbled a pair of brackets together for the floor jacks so I could get the shear off the ground far enough to slide the truck under the shear & not be in the way.

      Moment of truth to see if there are any clearance issues with moving parts.



      It all fits & rolls surprisingly easy once the 2 swivel wheels align.



      Still have to finish up the fence for the gauge & make an aluminum top for the table.

            I have a similar type made by Niagra. Very versitile machine. It has a 52 inch wide blade but with the set back throat, it can really cut any size. It can cut up to 16 gauge steel and I cut 1/8 aluminum with it, I just used it yesterday to cut vct floor tile that I installed in the office and waiting areas.
            I think I will convert it to pneumatic power soon, gets old stomping on it.

              Thanks H80N

              Thanks Blondie. I've been trying to get back on the "Z" project but other stuff (like the shear) take up all my free time.

              fabricator I use this one 90% of the time to shear .080 aluminum for road construction signs. Someday I'll use it to make the interior for the "Z", I hope.

                Pro70z28,
                I know what that's like. I have my project I call "Old Wing" tucked in the corner of my shop, waiting on me to find time to work on it. Oh I must not forget about my Gravely L8 either.

                At any rate I haven't seen you post anything but first class work on the site and I'm sure it will be reflected in the Z28 when it's done as well.
