    The Best Metal Roofing Tool for Exposed Fastener Panels

    When cutting panels for metal roofs, time and accuracy matter. When measuring and cutting manually, one mistake can cost hours of work and lost material. That’s why the best metal roofing tool for exposed fastener panels is the Heavy Duty Pivot Shear by Swenson Shears. We have created a tool that makes factory-grade cuts on your metal roof panel with stunning accuracy, eliminating burrs and flying metal — and you can use it to shear straight at 90 degrees or up to an 8/12 gable.

    How the Heavy Duty Pivot Shear Works

    The Heavy Duty Pivot Shear makes it easy to turn a metal sheet into a set of cut exposed fastener panels in seconds. It is lightweight, transportable and designed for easy two-person operation—one to feed the roofing sheet and one to operate the shear. The tool is also designed to accommodate interchangeable custom-made blade sets, each of which is made for a specific profile and pitch. The gable blades have an allowance of 1/12 up or down from the blade set ordered.

    The Heavy Duty Pivot Shear is perfect for shearing heavy gauge panels to a 48-inch maximum cut length. To operate, simply attach the handle using the 9/16” nuts and bolts provided, then remove the safety clevis pin to open the shear. The blade operates on a pivot; simply pull down on the top shear to make the cut. You can shear straight at 90 degrees or up to an 8/12 gable.

    For jobs involving lighter gauge exposed fastener panels, we offer a smaller, lightweight version, the M42 Pivot Shear. This tool operates similarly to the Heavy Duty Pivot Shear. To operate, attach the handle using the 9/16” nuts and bolts, remove the safety clevis pin to open the shear, and pull down to make the cut. The M42 can handle exposed fastener panels up to a maximum cut length of 42 inches, and it can shear straight at 90 degrees or up to a 5/12 gable.
