This new compact, pneumatic shear joins the Malco line of metal-cutting TurboShears. The company claims that the model TSHD1A is a quick and easy solution for cutting large or tight patterns common with in-shop duct fabrication. The 18-gauge-capacity shear cuts straight and to the left and is capable of both fast, straight shearing and navigating tight circular or square pattern cuts. The shears are compatible with most shop or jobsite air supplies. Video of the tool in action can be found at the Malco Web site.
