Must-Have HVAC Sheet Metal Tools
C-RHEX® SAWTOOTH (MSHCST & MSHXLCST)
Available in two lengths, 2” and 6”, these multipurpose drivers ensure that popular 1/4” and 5/16” hex openings are always on hand for installation, with an integrated sawtooth design that cuts through soft and hardened HVAC and roofing sealant for rapid fastener removal. Built with S2 hardened steel for long life and superior durability, this removable and reversible hex driver gives the user easy access for cleaning the socket and magnet. Get back to work in seconds by simply removing the driver from the impact to push the drive side of the shaft through the socket to quickly clear sealant buildup.
TurboShear® Heavy Duty (TSHD)
Here’s a timesaving power drill attachment that has revolutionized the HVAC market. Transform your drill or small impact driver into an 18-gauge, metal-cutting power shear with the TSHD. Its wide-opening jaws can operate at high or low speeds for optimum control and easily cut through layered metal and seams, even the ribs of spiral sheet metal ducts. The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for additional flexibility. It not only saves your hands from fatigue, but you can get the job done in a fraction of the time compared to manual snips.
“Gold Standard” Sheet Metal Hole Cutter (HC1 & HC2)
Perfect for cutting circles in seconds, Malco’s “Gold Standard” Sheet Metal Hole Cutter installs into the chuck of any corded/cordless drill. The “gold standard” cutter bits, precision-fit bearings, and easy-adjusting pivot pin make this tool the longest lasting and fastest solution for cutting 2”–12” or 2”–20” diameter holes in sheet metal. A lightweight aluminum frame makes these accessories extremely portable as well.
With these HVAC sheet metal tools on hand, maximize productivity while working in the heat. Not only will you save time and effort, but these innovative tools are user-friendly and comfortable to use, day in and day out. Experience the Malco difference for yourself
