Make your power drill a powerful slate-cutting shear! The Malco Turboshear Model TSNS1 quickly inserts into the chuck of most corded or cordless drills. This versatile and portable TurboShear requires less force than other slate-cutting methods. An operating speed of 1400 to 2000 RPM ensures optimal performance and control for making fast straight, angled or curved cuts in 4 to 8 mm natural roofing slate. Cutting slate with finished side up produces an authentic-looking, hand-cut appearance. And a padded skid plate prevents scratches to the exposed slate finish. A streamlined, lightweight aluminum shear head and telescoping drill clamp make this compact attachment adjustable for both length and width of the drill housing to go where the work is. Smooth, easy one-hand operation always leaves a free hand to steady the work when making cuts on a bench or rooftop. Cut thousands of linear feet of roofing slate quickly and easily all season long! You can even rotate the tool s skid plate to maximize acceptable cutting life. And the long-wearing blade and skid plate are also easily replaced on the job.
Malco Products, Inc. got its start in 1950 when a young steel supply salesman, Mark W.Keymer, decided to manufacture and market a pipe crimper he had invented for use in installing the "new" sheet metal ductwork used with forced air heating systems. More tools soon followed, including: the first hand seamer to employ compound leverage; a time saving hand notcher that made a V-shaped cut in one motion; and a hand operated, snap lock punch to complete the basic sheet metal tool set. Today Malco Products, Inc. is the nation's leading manufacturer of "tools of the trade" for HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) professionals. In 1975 Malco also created a vital specialty tool market for EXTERIOR REMODELING professionals (Installers of Roofing, Siding and Gutter) and holds the leadership position in that niche as well. Corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Annandale, Minnesota, just outside the Minneapolis / St. Paul metroplex. Malco continues its founder's tradition of leadership and innovation by addressing a changing industry landscape and responding to emerging market needs for new specializations and more customized products and services.
