For the house and garage in most cases is enough mechanical metal shears — with their help you can easily cut a wire or piece of metal mesh, and cutting in pieces of thin sheet metal.
But if you have to work with round and square bars with a thickness of 10-12 mm, you need something more powerful.
In this review, the wizard will show you how to make hydraulic metal shears (on the basis of a bottle of Jack). We will also use a pair of cutting jaws from mechanical shear.

Start to work
The first step is to remove the cutting jaws together with the connecting plate with mechanical scissors. Then disconnect both of the sponge from the plate.
One of the cutting jaws will need to be shortened a bit — using the grinder cut off the excess part.
From pieces of a metal corner weld base frame (base and rack). To the rack weld the shortened cutting sponge.
Next, using joining plates fasten the second sponge. Install bottle Jack and our homemade contraption ready.
