3 in stock



Distinctive gold Bits, Bearings and Pivot Pin signify
the longest lasting, fastest cutting, easiest adjusting solution for cutting
holes in sheet metal. Malco Hole Cutters quickly install into the chuck of any
corded or cordless drill as small as 1/4″ (6.35 mm). Lightweight aluminum
frames make these accessories extremely portable for a variety of hole cutting
applications in sheet metal including 20-gauge (1.02 mm) galvanized steel. A
compact model HC1 Hole Cutter is adjustable for making 2 to 12″ (51 to 305 mm)
diameter holes.

The larger HC2 model cuts 2 to 20″ (51 to 508 mm)

A combination English/Metric diameter gauge is
included on the adjustable pivot slide for both models and both models use the
same mill-type Cutter Bit and replacement parts.
The HC1 and HC2 hole cutters feature Malco’s Gold
Standard Cutter Bits. These cutter bits feature a long lasting, mill type
cutting edge and large flat for adjusting the cutting edge location up or down
to extend bit life. One cutter bit fits either model and is easily replaceable. 



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.
