Turboshears

Description

Making your power drill a powerful metal-cutting shear is now a more attractive idea than ever before!  This well-tailored attachment quickly inserts into the chuck of a corded or cordless drill to make fast straight, curved or square cuts in most common sheet metals.  A sleek, lightweight aluminum cast shear head and molded drill clamp allow maximum portability and ease to go wherever the work is. The compact telescoping drill clamp adjusts to fit both length and width of popular drill sizes including smaller bodied impact drivers. Optional spacers are stored on clamp for large motor housings.
The clamp collar allows the shear head to be rotated 360° and set in any position for optimum tool clearance when navigating profiles or to facilitate easy material flow. The shear’s wide-opening jaws can operate at high or low speeds for the control you need to follow a precise trim line, navigate crosscuts through profiles of metal building and roofing panels or cut through layered metal and seams, even the ribs of spiral duct.  Heavy-duty gearing and beefy, hardened carbon steel blades combine to offer up to 18-gauge (1.22 mm) cutting capacity in mild steel. A lateral blade adjustment capability ensures that optimum cutting performance and maneuverability can be maintained for the life of the blades. Replacement blades are available and easily installed on the job.

What materials will the turbo shear cut?

TSHD – cuts 18-gauge (1.32 mm) galvanized steel (HVAC duct work, auto body panels), 20-gauge (. 82 mm) non hardened carbon steel and stainless steel (metal roofing panels), 14-gauge (1.54 mm) aluminum (trim coil, flashing), and.100 inches (2.55 mm) copper (metal roofing, gutters).

The TSHD is also rated to cut 20-gauge (.82 mm) spiral duct work.

How clean is the cut?

TSHD – The Turboshear metal cutting series will make clean cuts throughout the range of thicknesses of material listed above. The tool will need to be adjusted when going from very thin to thick material and vice versa.

How do you adjust the tool to get the optimum cut?

TSHD – The clearance between the cutting jaws is adjustable in order to achieve the optimum cut for thick or thin material. To adjust, locate the 3/16” set screw on the back of the tool, towards the front of the tool near the jaws. Turn it clockwise to tighten the gap of the jaws for thinner material or counterclockwise to make the gap of the jaws larger for thicker material.
