Natural Roofing Slate Hand Cutter
The compact, lightweight Natural Roofing Slate Hand Cutter, makes easy work of fitting slate roofing tiles with a quick re-sizing trim or a cut-out to accommodate a structure. The blade of this precision hand tool accurately navigates edge cuts, cleanly notches out square corners or cuts circle diameters as tight as 4 inches (102 mm). With the flat, unfinished side of the slate facing up, the tool’s serrated, high carbon steel blade securely grips the unfinished surface to make a desirable chiseled cut look from the finished side of 4 – 8 mm natural roofing slate. Hardened all-steel construction with rust-resistant nickel plate and black oxide finishes ensures long service life.
The Malco NSC1 Slate Cutter also features ergonomic RedLine Handle technology. An Engineered handle opening compliments the natural power stroke of any user’s hand and maximizes the powerful 7:1 mechanical advantage of compound-leverage head to handle linkage. Comfortable handle grip contours, a non-slip grip insert, spring handle actuation and a thumb-operated handle latch ensure a natural fit and feel for comfortable one hand operation anywhere on the job.
