What materials will the turbo shear cut?
TSHD1A 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 inch (2.55 mm) copper (metal roofing, gutters).
The TSHD1A is not rated for spiral duct.
How clean is the cut?
TSHD1A- 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?
TSHD1A - 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.
