Whilst I do not know the capabilities of the shears which you are
using it sounds as if they are too light for the board which you are
cutting. Conservation by Design Limited sell an extremely reasonably
priced  heavy duty Board Chopper which will cope with 4 mm thick
Millboard. A fuller description is given in both the Boards and
Equipment sections of our catalogue which can be seen at

I hope that this is of help,
