TENNSMITH's LM1010 / LM1210 is equipped with a standard "Go-To” 30-inch back gauge system. The ball screw-driven back gauge provides quick, accurate cuts. The operator simply inputs a dimension, and then presses enter, and the gauge automatically positions to that number. Please call for more details. The LM1010 is also available with the unique 2x back gauge system (LM1010-2x). This allows the operator to move the backstop from 0 to 30 inches in approximately 2 seconds with only two rotations of the handle. An optional digital readout is available for this system.

The LM Series shears are standard with four-edge, high carbon, high chrome blades, independent, self-leveling hold down feet with neoprene inserts, single, continuous and jog stroke cycles, motor reverse switch, precision-machined table with hand well, dual inch/metric inlaid bed scales and non-metallic gibs.
