Primarily designed for straight cuts in sheet metal.

Nothing harder then mild steel.

The knurled knob is meant to be a clamp and is helpful for thicker materials.

Flat stock only on the blades, No channel or angle etc.

No rod or wire except in the hole.

It will cut 1/8 mild steel and 1/2" rod but I recommend 12 gauge sheet and 3/8 diameter as maximums.

Pull slowly and be prepared for a jolt if you are pulling hard at the end of a cut.
