FOOT SHEAR

If a foot shear can shear 18 ga. steel, is there any way to determine what
max. ga. al. it can shear of the same x/y dimensions?
In another post, I asked if anyone had ever heard of a Frederick foot shear
and got no answer. I ask again.
Thanks

Just saw an episode of "Mythbusters" in which they were trying to bust the myth that steel-toed boots can cut your toes off if crushed. Generally, they busted the myth except in one very important instance. They dropped a heavy load with the contact point being a piece of angle iron with the edge down. The edge of the angle iron slipped off of the steel toe and onto the unreinforced portion of the boot, resulting in a nice guillotine action, severing their test foot behind the steel toe!
Wear those steel-toed boots, but don't get careless, seems to be the message.
