3001 Series Guillotine Shears

Model 3001 25" Guillotine Shear

The 3001 Guillotine Shear was originally designed in 1999. The original prototype was a 13" shear and continues in use in Accucutter's® shop. While the basic design of the 3001 shears has remained unchanged since that original prototype, the shears have continued to evolve with changes made as appropriate. Three  3001 shears are available; a lighter duty 13" and the standard 13" and 25".


The 3001EVO/13 is the lighter duty version of the original 13" shear and is discussed at the bottom of the page. The standard 13" and 25" shears (3001/13 & 3001/25) have been upgraded with 1/2" thick end plates, heavy duty alignment blocks for the upper blade holder with 1/4" thick aluminum bronze wear plates, and a new drop  off/rear gauge. In addition, all of the shears have the Standard Features listed below.


The standard 13" & 25" shears are constructed to industrial standards, and the resulting mass of the shears contributes significantly to their performance. If you have worked with industrial equipment, you know that the heavier, sturdier equipment is more stable and less fatiguing to operate. Depending on the size, the shears weigh from 85 to 150 pounds. Most of the weight is in the guillotine action that is made entirely of steel. Once that mass is put in motion, its inertial contributes to the ease and smoothness of the operation of the shear. While lighter weight designs can move during use and be difficult to use, the standard 13" & 25" shears do not have these problems. The shears cut foils, aluminum and plastic with little or no effort. Even the most timid operator can cut harder materials like half-hard trophy brass producing full width cuts that are flat and square.


The 3001 shears were designed and developed by Accucutter® and are manufactured at its facility in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. They offer the extra precision and power of a larger commercial guillotine shear in a smaller, more affordable bench shear that provides convenience and flexibility unavailable in any other shear on the market.

Model 3001 Standard Features:


“Flip-Up Hold-Down”
Accucutter®’s exclusive “Flip-Up Hold-Down” is standard on all standard 3001 shears. When in the down position, it automatically applies pressure to the material to facilitate smooth, accurate cutting. When necessary, the hold-down may be flipped up out of the way to permit easy access to the blades.


Movable Handle
The shear handle may be installed on the left or right of the shear enabling right handed and left handed operators to use the same shear.


Precision Drop-Off Bar
     The Precision Drop-Off Bar is full width and is an invaluable aid for making accurate, repetitive cuts. It is mounted to the top blade carrier and moves up and down with the top blade like the rear gauge on many larger guillotine shears. It is above the material and doesn't interfere with the material as it falls away from the shear after it is cut. It slides on two alignment rods and is locked in position by turning a knob on each rod.


Step Ruler
     The typical ruler is a stamped piece of thin metal. The ruler from Accucutter® is machined from a thick, solid piece of steel. There are six separate steps involved in its manufacture with the last being a precision grinding of the front edge to insure that the ruler is straight and true. Because of its thickness, it is very stable, and the edge will not lift or distort allowing material to slide underneath the ruler. Lastly, the ruler is stepped to place the measuring edge close to the work surface for easier reading. The ruler is graduated in 1/16th's of an inch.


Blade Adjustment
     The standard 3001 uses the same blade system pioneered by Accucutter® on its 2001 Bench Shear. The blades are mounted with tapped bolts rather than the old fashion nut and bolt system, and the bottom blade is adjusted with set screws instead of eccentrics. A much safer, quicker and simpler method of installing and adjusting the blades.

NEW - The 3001EVO
Smaller, Lighter & Still Great


The new 3001EVO is the newest shear in the Model 3001 series. It is a 13" guillotine shear but with a reduced overall size and price.


The original 3001 13" Guillotine Shear was introduced by Accucutter® in 1999.  Since it’s introduction, the 3001 Series has proved to be the most durable and accurate shear on the market for the price. However, with the rising costs of raw materials the original 3001 13" Guillotine Shear has become too expensive for some applications.

In an effort to continue to offer an affordable guillotine shear without sacrificing quality, Accucutter® conducted a complete review and evaluation of the original 3001 shear. The result of the effort is a new shear that is smaller and 35 pounds lighter than the original but still retains all the unique features of the original.  Like all shears bearing the Accucutter® name, the new 3001EVO is made totally in the USA at our plant in Pennsylvania.  The shear still has a cut width of 13" and a 12" table.

The 3001EVO/13 has the same Standard Features as listed above for the 19" and 25" shears. The capacity is also the same except for plastic which is reduced. The 3001EVO/13 will also cut foils.

Shear Capacity:
     · Aluminum................................................. .040"
· Engravers Brass........................................ .025"
· Flexible Plastic.......................................... .063"
· Brass Plated Steel...................................... .020”

Size & Weight:
· 3001EVO/13 - 22.5"L x 18"W x 8"H (W/out handle); Approximately 50 lbs.

Availability & Ordering
The 3001EVO is built to order. Please check for current availability and delivery. At the time of ordering it is necessary to specify which type of blade you prefer. The choices are either for metal or for plastic. A multi-purpose blade is also available.
