Knowledge is Power: John Sheridan’s Radius Techniques Review

Sheridan Radius Techniques Review
March 10, 2023 at 6:00 a.m.

By Yvette Cruz. 

From what to cut to how to finish, John Sheridan shares his experience.  

Metal use is on the rise in the construction industry. John Sheridan, owner of Sheridan Metal Resources LLC, has noticed the increase  and has set up training programs so the best quality of work can be received. But he also wants to educate those in the field with safe procedures and specific tools that will help achieve the finest results.  

In his video, Radius Techniques Reviews, John goes over different tools for cutting sheet metal. Immediately, he demonstrates safety first, using gloves and protective goggles. More than that, he stresses the importance of securing your work before cutting because the last thing anyone needs is a sheet of metal pitched out from under the blade.  

After cutting, John goes through a few different tools that he would use to finish the edge. He produces a die grinder and discusses the types of roloc discs that he can attach to them for different textures and finishes. After cutting a sheet of metal and grinding the edge, John says, “I can run my hand along there, no problem. Not aggressive at all. And it's pretty close to as clean as a factory edge.” He believes that “Even if we were able to CNC the stuff and bring it out to the site. I think you're still going to have to adapt to that at some point and do some trimming. That combination of tools is good for that.” 

John is very experienced in the field and has been doing this work for over forty-five years. In another demonstration with a different type of sheet metal, he says, “That was stainless steel. If that was cut with a grinder, that would be as sharp as a scalpel” proving that knowledge is essential not only for business to succeed, but for workers to remain unscathed.  

Watch the full video to learn more about the different edge tools used and what John has to say about each one.
