Default What model foot shear is this?

The only info I have on it is it's supposed to be made by Pexto. Thanks for any help!

Has anyone even seen one of these before? Doesn't look like a Pexto logo to me...

I can't see the logo good enough? It Could be - hard to say. On ebay you have to watch out for tool listings that say like pexto, or even include the listing with the pexto name in it?

Not sure what brand it is but I would bet money on that it won't cut your 20 ga. stainless You better upgrade a few decades

I agree with Stickman. whatever brand it is it's not heavy enough for your needs. My Pexto is from the 60's, and it's much heavier than that one. If that is a Pexto, it must be a great granddaddy by now!

It probably isn't 36" across, either. Also note the lack of holddowns for the metal being cut.

Sure looks like my 1890 model with a new foot treadle. I will attempt to get you specs..
it measures 31 across, the tradle was cast with two foot pads. it appears this one was changed out. It could come with two sides and with a top shelf as well. A back gauge would bolt to the back and there were also guides for the front. I think it is in the cetennial addition of the pexto catalog.

It is a Peckstow & Wilcox 30" foot shear, made in 1890... barnhart-studios is right on the money!

How much do you guys think this is worth?

To me it wouldn't be worth the money spent. I must have 36' capability. To someone else, who knows!

Wow I'm just recalling years ago when my helper stopmed his finger under our old Pexto hold down bar...wow in this thing he'd be lacking a finger!
