TSNS1 Slate Cutter

TSNS1 Slate CutterThe Malco TurboShear Model TSNS1 attaches to a corded or cordless electric drill for making straight, angled or curved cuts in 4 to 8 mm natural roofing slate fast and easy.  Get superior results with less waste!  An operating speed of 1400 to 2000 RPM ensures optimal performance and control for successful cuts every time.  Cutting roofing slate with finished side up produces an authentic-looking, hand-chiseled appearance.  And a padded skid plate prevents surface scratches.  This well tailored slate-cutting drill attachment features a sleek, lightweight shear head and compact telescoping drill clamp for easy cutting access anywhere on the job.  There is no need to modify your drill.  The aluminum cast head inserts directly into the drill chuck and the molded clamp adjusts in seconds for both length and width of the drill housing, including smaller lithium-ion battery powered units.  Cut thousands of linear feet of roofing slate all season long!  The padded skid plate may also be rotated to maximize blade life.  And both the skid plate and long-wearing, heat-treated carbon steel blade are easily replaceable.
