    Shear pins

    Hello. If I have the option to install multiple shear pins made from different material, ie brass/mild steel in a tool, is the shear force shared across the combination of pins or will the shearing occer when only the shear rating of the highest pin occurs? For example if pinning 2 x brass and two steel, are the brass irrelevant?
