View Full Version : Shear gibb clearance?

10-12-2005, 07:25 PM
Hi folks:

Long shot here....Does anyone know what the clearance should be between the gibbs and the bearing plates on a 3/16" plate shear? (Mid '70's SVT-Pullmax) I need to replace the blades, but there is way too much slop in the gibs to allow a tight gap setting for shearing light guage materials. (Don't want to damage new blades)

I am concidering buying new parts, but after seeing the prices, I am wondering if there is an alternative such as machining new ones. The problem with that is I don't know what size they were new. Any advice would be appreciated.
