Metal framing cutter by Stud Chopper
The Stud Chopper manufactures portable shears for cutting metal framing studs on the job site and at the manufacturing plants. There are three models available. The gas-powered Model "G" and the electric 110-volt Stud Chopper Jr. cut metal framing studs from 35/8-inch to 14-inch at any angle and up to 12-gauge thickness, with up to 30 cuts per minute. The Model "E" (pictured) is used in the manufacturing plant environment and is powered by a 10-horsepower electric motor. The cuts are accurate, clean and need no further finishing. They cut without producing sparks, chips, smoke or fatiguing noise.
