    Default Cincinnati Shear Light beam gage

    I recently bought a Cincinnati 1/4x10 shear to replace my 10 GA Niagara. There are times when I need to shear to a scribe. The Niagara was short enough I could look down on the blade.
    I've searched for images all over google and on ebay. Can someone provide pictures of what's involved? And some measurements? I've got two new 4 foot LED fixtures.

    A few years back I checked out a couple linear beam lasers from Ebay but the lines get fuzzy out about 3-4 feet. Maybe there are better ones now.

    My neighbor/ customer has one probably similar or identical to yours. They use tape measures and the back gauge, no "light bean gauge" is present.

    You cant use lights with multiple rows of light, so most LEDs are not usable.

    You need standard bulbs and run them down the blade about 2 feet above the top. The bulbs need to be adjustable so they shine a light straight down. As the blade gets taller, the light beam will be wrong, but you can figure it out and adjust it.
