5-Blade Crimper – Sheet Metal Pipe
Use Malco’s 5 Blade Crimper to downsize stove pipe and round duct. The five blades of this versatile sheet metal crimper produces a 1-5/8 inch (41.3 mm) long, shallow, double crimp. The crimps produced from the tool replicates factory indentations and ensures a tight fitting, leak-proof connection. The connection is also more self-supporting during installation. A handle closing stop maintains a consistent crimp. The tool is made with hardened all-steel construction and a nickel chrome finish, which ensures a long service life.
The Malco 5 Blade Sheet Metal Crimper 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.

It works well, gives a professional quality resultUnless you're a contractor doing a lot of vent work, you won't use this much. But when you need it, you need it. This is very easy to use and gives a very nice, professional looking crimp.

Pipe crimperIt met expectations. It fulfills a need I had for which I had no other solutions. It was easy to use.
Improved over old modelLike the lock location, (better than older version) We use this EVERY DAY. Looks well constructed. Would buy it again.
