Malco Useful Drill Attachments

By Malco Tools. 

No, this is not a drill. You can now transform your drill into a power shear with Malco’s range of TurboShear attachments! 

Using power drill attachments instead of manual snips to cut sheet metal, siding or roofing panels can help you save valuable time and energy. Whether installing an HVAC system or replacing shingles on a roof, Malco Tools products are designed to excel across various industries and applications. The majority of these TurboShear models come with a clamp collar, allowing for the shear head to  rotate 360 degrees. Applicable in a wide range of professional fields, these tools ensure your tasks are completed with greater effectiveness and in less time.  

Must-have Malco TurboShear power drill attachments - cut metal with minimal effort 

1 - TurboShear Heavy Duty (TSHD) 

Say hello to one of Malco’s most versatile power drill attachments. Cut up to thick 18-gauge metal with the best-selling TSHD. Get optimum control to make fast straight, curved, or square cuts in most common sheet metals, layered metal and seams, and even the ribs of spiral duct. 

2 - TurboShear (TS1) 

Turn your power drill into a 20-gauge, metal-cutting shear with Malco’s original TurboShear attachment. This classic essential revolutionized the HVAC market at the time of its release in 2003. Even without the 360° rotating collar, you can effortlessly cut through sheet metal in a fraction of the time compared to using manual snips. 

3 - TurboShear Double Cut (TSMD) 

Need a double cut for the job? Malco’s  durable double-cutting power drill attachment with smooth one-handed operation has you covered. The blades can approach a cut from either end of a panel to remove a narrow spiral scrap from the tool path to produce a clean, straight edge on both sides of the cut. Navigate up to 90° outside profiles of metal ductwork and cut through seams with ease. 

4 - TurboShear Vinyl Siding (TSV1) 

Get the vinyl-cutting power you need in a lightweight package. Whether you want to make fast straight cuts, circles, or squares in 0.055” (1.4 mm) vinyl siding, Malco’s TSV1 attachment features a knife-like beveled blade edge that quickly penetrates the lock seam edge with ease to cut any shape you need. 

5 - TurboShear Fiber Cement Siding (TSF1) 

Make fast, accurate cuts in fiber cement siding and navigate curved-pattern cuts for window and door arches with the TSF1. A wide skid plate on the head design stabilizes cutting action for extra-smooth results in 5/16” (7.9 mm) fiber cement siding board. One blade and skid plate set will last an average of 30 residential siding projects. 

6 - TurboShear Backer Board (TSF2) 

This specialty attachment can slice through ½” (12.7 mm) fiber cement backer board. It’s an ideal replacement for messy, imprecise scoring and snapping methods of trimming backer board. This versatile shear navigates curved-pattern cuts for window and door arches and will also cut 5/16” (8 mm) fiber cement siding plank. 

7 - TurboShear Slate (TSNS1) 

Cut thousands of linear feet of natural roofing slate quickly and easily. An operating speed of 1,400 to 2,000 RPM ensures optimal performance and control for making fast straight, angled or curved cuts in 4mm to 8mm natural roofing slate. Cutting slate with the finished side up produces an authentic-looking, hand-cut appearance, and a padded skid plate prevents scratches to the exposed slate finish. 

8 - TurboShear Corrugated Metal (TSCM) 

Corrugated metal has met its match. Malco’s top-rated TSCM works better and faster than manual metal roofing shears. Make smooth cross, lengthwise, circular and square outlet cuts in 30- to 24-gauge corrugated and common trapezoidal (box) pattern metal roofing panels. 

9 - TurboShear Asphalt Shingle (TSS1) 

Slice through asphalt shingles in no time. The TSS1 attachment makes quick, clean trim cuts in up to a ½” (12.7 mm) of asphalt shingles along a roof valley. Engineered to also cut tight left square cuts and circles to fit around roof penetrations such as vents. An extra-wide jaw opening with a beveled lead-in tip on the upper blade accommodates cutting multiple shingle layers, while the flat lower blade offers exceptional operator control.
