Rockwell has just announced the SoniShear, an attachment for their popular SoniCrafter oscillating multi-tool. The SoniShear is incredibly user-friendly, and is designed to make effortless and precise cuts in many different materials.
We think that this new accessory is going to sell very, very well, for several reasons. Most notably, we imagine that the SoniCrafter SoniShear would excel at repetitive tasks. Not only would it help reduce operator hand fatigue, it should also be able to provide highly consistent results as well.
Curved cuts? Contours? Straight cuts? No problem! We’ve tried making curved cuts in plastic sheeting before with manual shears (actually they were tin snips), and it was far from pretty. A SoniShear probably would have came in handy for that project.
The SoniShear is constructed from high impact composites and has hardened steel cutters. The shear operates at up to 20,000 strokes per minute, and can cut materials as thick as 5/16″, depending on the material.
The RW9247 SoniShear attachment accessory for corded Sonicrafters is priced quite reasonably at $25, which isn’t much costlier than a pair of good general purpose shears. While it hasn’t yet hit stores, the SoniShear will soon be available at Amazon, and select local retailers.
