A Complete System for Cutting Downspout Drop Holes!

RATCHETING TOOL AND PUNCH SOLUTION FOR POPULAR K-STYLE ALUMINUM GUTTER: A versatile, lightweight Malco Tool Frame accepts your choice of separate Rectangular and X-Style Punch and Die combinations: 2.2 x 3.2 in (56 x 81 mm); 2 x 3 in (51 x 76 mm); 3 x 4 in (76 x 102 mm); 2 x 3 in (51 x 76 mm) X-Style and NEW 3-IN X 4-IN (76X102 MM) X-STYLE.

Use the lightweight aluminum and steel tool frame and the punch and die combination of choice to cut a clean drop hole anywhere along the length of standard 5 or 6-inch K-style aluminum gutter up to .032-in (0.81 mm) thickness.  Work on the ground or on pre-installed gutter.  The tool frame features ample throat clearance and open sides to allow the punch easy access over the front edge of the gutter and quickly line up cuts in either horizontal or vertical direction.  The tool frame’s one-handed ratcheting mechanism, and the angled blades of the punch, combine to provide a smooth cutting action.  A built-in ejector on the frame safely removes the metal slug from rectangular cuts.  High carbon steel blades ensure long punch life, and the blades are also separately replaceable.  Click here for more information and images on the Malco website.


This heavy duty option is available as a complete gutter outlet tool with the desired punch and die pre-installed.  Order additional punch and die kits for interchangeable sizes desired, including true metric sizes: 50 x 100 mm (1.9 x 3.9 in); 75 x 100 mm (2.9 x 3.9 in); 3 x 3 in (80 x 80 mm); 80 x 80 mm (3.2 x 3.2 in); 2.5 x 3 in (63.5 x 76.2 mm); 2.5 x 2.5 in (63.5 x 63.5 mm).

Malco Products now offers six new heavy-duty Gutter Outlet Tools, including metric sizes.  Ideal for a range of cutting applications from Quad Style 0.53 mm (.021 in) painted steel and 0.58 mm (.023 in) zinc coated aluminum (ZincAlum) gutter to 0.43-0.81 mm (.017-.032 in) K-Style aluminum gutter.  Faster, more precise cuts ensure that gutter drops and downspout always fit flush.  A powerful threaded drive combined with a smooth-cutting punch blade requires only moderate force and a steady turning motion on the handle to ensure clean separation of the metal slug when recycling.  High carbon steel blades ensure a long lasting cutting edge and are also resharpenable.  Easy-to-install Punch and Die Kits are available separately as replacement parts or for use as additional interchangeable punch sizes on a single tool.  Durable cast aluminum tool frames offer lightweight portability and long service life on the job.  Fastener holes are provided in the frame base for optional bench-mount operation.  Click here to see video demonstration.


Fine-toothed gutter outlet saws ensure that drop and downspout always fit flush to gutter.  Five hole saws including true metric sizes.  Use with a minimum 1/2-in (13 mm) cordless or corded drill and Malco arbor-pilot drill.

These fine-toothed hole saws make safe, fast, clean cuts in thin walled and half round gutter.  Drops and downspout fit snug and flush with gutter every time.  High speed steel teeth set at 10 per-inch (per 25.4 mm) will not grab or twist material, even when cutting half round gutter.  The Pilot drill bit projects only 11 mm (7/16-in) out of the shallow 25.4 mm (1-in) saw cup to ensure controlled safe engagement of the teeth.  A tapered compression spring collar on the Arbor/Pilot Drill Bit automatically ejects the metal slug.  These saws may be used on the ground or on the roof, following power tool manufacturer’s instructions for drill operation.  Ideal for cutting 0.43-0.81 mm (.017-.032 in) K-Style aluminum gutter and Half-Round gutter made of 0.46 mm (.018 in) zinc coated aluminum (ZincAlum), 0.58 mm (.023 in) galvanized aluminum (GalvAlum), 0.53 mm (.021 in) painted steel and 22 oz copper.
