Swenson Shear hip & valley blade sets for the Swenson 48" HD Pivot Shear are the perfect fit for your shear and are precision cut to exactly match your profile.
Because hip panels are hidden by the hip cap, as a rule of thumb, you can use one blade to get a couple of pitch angles, for example, a 3:12 blade will cut a 2:12-4:12 angle, and a 6:12 blade can cut a 5:12-7:12 angle.
Because valley panel cuts are visible, you should use only a blade designed for the pitch you need. For example, a 6:12 blade should only be used to cut a 6:12 valley (however you can use the same 6:12 blade to cut a 5:12 to 7:12 hip)
Available for roof pitches up to 8:12.
