A very important adjustment on your shearing station is your clamp parts. If you’re changing the material thickness, you have to change the clamp parts. If you do not change the clamp parts to the thickness of the material, you can chip and damage the blade.
Loosen the clamp bolts. Raise/lower the clamp to sit 2-3mm about the material. Re-tighten the clamp- bolts. The material should be able to move freely.
