Introducing the amazing Metal Pecker slot-shear

WHAT IT DOES
The Metal Pecker is specifically designed to cut penetrations in profiled metal roofing for in-situ vent pipe and skylight installation …as well as air-conditioning duct, furring channel and other straight or formed metal sheet. The tool’s precisely engineered slot-shear cutting action eats up folded sheets, seams and joints, like no other hand or power tool you’ve ever used. The more you use the tool, the more uses you will find for it onsite!

HOW IT WORKS
The Metal Pecker compliments other tools that do their best work on single thickness profile cutting at ground level, or on flat sheet. However, when the going gets tough with in-situ penetrations and other tools pass up under-folds or have difficulty cutting through a profile, reach for the Metal Pecker. It’s extended handles keep you away from the sheet’s sharp edges and provide greater reach and leverage in hard to access places, reducing your work time.

A MULTITUDE OF USES
The Metal Pecker’s bolt-cutter length handles provide far greater cutting leverage than other metal cutting hand tools. It’s precision cutter blade shears the metal between the anvils and pushes out a 1.7″ (43mm) x 0.24″ (6mm) slug with each cutting stroke. There is no sharp blade face to blunt. To cut, you simply punch a pilot opening in the metal sheet, poke the beak of the Metal Pecker’s cutting jaw into the opening and commence cutting.

WHAT USERS SAY ABOUT THE METAL PECKER

I’ve been using a Metal Pecker for around 6-months and I reckon it paid for itself in the first week. I install around 12 skylights a week on metal roofs and it is surprising the materials I have to cut through to make my entry spaces. The tool is so handy and the leverage I generate with its long handles is quite amazing, particularly when I have to cut through a multi-layer fold in the metal.

My company does lots of HVAC upgrades and we’re always poking new penetrations in existing duct work. I’ve never seen a tool that makes the task so easy. Were often up on a ladder working over overhead, which means you have a real challenge in making a cut in the duct but the Metal Pecker gives me extra reach and leverage. It’s far safer than working with power tools and I’ve developed my own ‘snapping action’ with the tool which makes the cuts so easy.

USER INSTRUCTIONS

1 To commence operation, simply punch/drill a pilot opening  in the metal sheet. This should be large enough to poke around half of the cutting blade head into the hole. You should then be able to leverage the blade and commence point nibbling  before working up to full strokes.


2
With each full stroke of the blade, the slot-shear action will remove a metal slug (1.7″ (43 mm) x 0.24″ (6mm)), which  will fall through the anvils to a chamber below. The chamber may store one or two slugs but they will then be forced out  by following strokes.


3
For the smoothest cutting action, open the blade as wide  as possible, so the edge of the metal that is to be cut sits  back in the throat area of the cutting blade/anvils.  This is the sweet spot where the cutting process starts.


4
When you come across a bead, seam or under-fold in the metal, work the tool from the sweet spot, to create maximum pressure and ensure a clean cut. You may find if you use a quick ‘snap action’ with the handles;  it will make the commencement of cutting easier.


5
To change the cutting direction, pull back the tool head slightly and twist the tool as required, then recommence point nibbling, before fully opening the blade.
