The rugged but inexpensive TurboShear HD cuts straight and to the left and makes fast cuts in material thickness up to 18-gauge galvanized steel. Cutting applications include both ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metals, metal roofing/building panels, vinyl, steel mesh, ductwork, even the thick metal of furnace jackets, equipment enclosures or automotive body panels.

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 inch (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.
