As we continue to go through 2017, we’re reminded how life is always going to have some rough edges. Whether it’s weather, taxes, or something as simple as your daily commute, we could all use a little help smoothing down some of the rough edges in our life!

Speaking of rough edges, Malco is thrilled to announce our brand new Conformable Sander! That’s right, now techs can sand contours with a block that holds a set shape and is easy to grip.

A Conformable Sander?! – Yes, You Read it Right

The Malco Comformable Sander is the first re-usable sanding block capable of holding a desired hand-pressed geometry throughout the sanding operation. The segmented block features a slide interface that works with standard 2-3/4 inch wide hook and loop backed abrasive paper.

Highlights of Malco’s new Conformable Sander include:

  • A generous gripping area on block that reduces fatigue and ensures even-pressure sanding.
  • An internal aluminum memory bar that holds the block and slide contour in place, and can be set and re-set with reasonable hand force.
  • The thin, flexible slide interface allows the block contour to be changed without buckling or tearing abrasive paper. There is no need to reposition the paper, and worn paper may be replaced without changing the block contour or removing slide.
  • The Malco Conformable Sander is available in 8-1/4 inch and 5-1/2 inch lengths (defined by the length of the paper-slide).

Let’s be honest, sanding uneven surfaces has always been a pain in the neck. Malco has addressed this problem and we’re proud of our new Conformable Sander—we think it will make your life a lot easier once you add it to your tool kit.

Once again, Happy New Year from all of us at Malco, where our resolution is always to make life easier for anyone who uses hand tools. The Conformable Sander will do that and is a must-have for anyone who does any amount of sanding work!

Impact Chuck Driver

Are you using an impact driver yet? We understand that the cordless drill is the most popular portable power tool out there, but hand-tool users everywhere have jumped on the bandwagon for the impact driver. Why? It’s pretty simple: an impact driver drives screws faster and easier than any other tool.

Malco Impact-Grade Chuck Drivers — Go Blue!

Malco has a new, distinctive, blue line of chuck drivers that give you an assurance that your inserts and power bits will withstand the kind of impact driver stress for each fastening application. And, all Malco Impact-Grade Chuck Driver inserts and power bits are precisely machined for positive, fail-proof engagement of the fastener head.

Impact Chuck Driver

Our Magnetic Hex Chuck Drivers feature a spring-loaded, floating magnet that prevents breakage from impact driver stress or from higher-profile screw hex head screws that may seat directly on the magnet. Get high-torque action with Star, Phillips and Square Power and Insert Bits and magnetic, color coded short, long and extra-long hex chuck drivers. Star, Phillips and Square bit selections feature unique high-torque steel construction and a design that absorbs and dissipates impact-driver-induced stress at peak loads.

Impact DriversImpact Chuck Drivers

These features include the following benefits:

  • The spring loaded magnet in the nut setters reduces or eliminates the magnet from breaking when used with an Impact Driver and high head fasteners.
  • The impact grade steel construction is built to absorb the force from impact drivers.
  • The color coded painted ring nut setters follow industry standard colors for quick reference and the ring won’t come off.
  • The blue base color identifies the nut setter as Malco Impact Grade and distinguishes it from other Malco offerings as well as the competition.

 

Impact drivers are ideal for building decks, installing tile backer board, and screwing down plywood subfloors — anything where you’ll be drilling a lot of screws. The Malco Blue Impact-Grade Chuck Driver inserts and power bits give you the best results you can get anywhere. Go Blue!

Roofing Tools

Roofing Tools

“The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.”—John F. Kennedy.

While anyone who works in roofing is quite aware that the sun is not always shining, Malco has the roofing tools that will at least make the job a little easier and more efficient. So, we’ve outlined a number of must-have roofing tools that you’re sure to use and love.

4 Malco Roofing Tools that Increase Efficiency

 

THE BEAST Shingle RemoverShingle Remover

Shingle removal is a beast of a job but now, finally, there’s a tool that’s up to the task. THE BEAST Shingle Remover from Malco makes a tough job bearable. THE BEAST cleanly lifts off heavy loads of shingles and pulls nails in one motion. Long handled models are available with either an adjustable head for handling any roof pitch, or a versatile fixed head. Adjustable models also feature fiberglass handles and a choice of 48” (1.22 m) or 58” (1.47 m) tool lengths. All long handle BEASTS feature replaceable 10 gauge (3.40 mm) tempered steel blades with variable length teeth. A comfortable D-grip is also standard.

Short Handled BEASTMalco Shingle Remover

Handle those tight spots with a short handled “Baby” BEAST! For steep pitched roof caps and hard to get at dormers, overhangs, valley flashing and flashing around structures, this compact tool is indispensable. The short handled BEAST also features extra side slots for pulling out nails along walls and from under trim. One piece steel integral handle is covered with a comfortable foam grip.

TurboShear — Asphalt Shingle Shear, PneumaticAsphalt Cutter

Malco also makes roofing easier with our TurboShear. This high-speed model is specialized for cutting all types of asphalt shingles. A standard gas powered job-site compressor with 50-foot (15.24 m) hose set-up is adequate to power this versatile air tool. Make fast, clean, straight trim cuts along a roof valley, or make square cuts and circles in shingles with equal precision and ease to fit around utility outlets. A wide jaw opening with a beveled lead-in tip accommodates multiple shingle layers and lateral blade adjustment capability makes this shear easily maneuverable in any life-rated shingle or thickness. A wide lower blade offers exceptional operator control. Heat-treated carbon steel blades with solid carbide inserts assure long cutting life. Replacement blades are also available and are easily installed at the job site.

Stone Coated Steel Roofing CutterSteel Roofing Cutter

Malco also has you covered when it comes to steel roofing tools as well. Our Stone Coated Steel Roofing Cutter makes fast, safe, precise cuts in stone coated steel shingles, shakes and tile style roofing, including DECRA, METRO and GERARD brands up to 30% easier than with other guillotines.

Compound leverage and generous handle length reduce user cutting force up to 30% versus other guillotine style cutters that pose a challenge to even the most seasoned pros. The shingle, including lock seam, is cut in one easy, steady motion. The shearing action has a “wiping” effect on the shingle’s zinc coating that seals the cut edge to resist rust.

A hardened steel blade and die offer reversible cutting edges for twice the cutting life, prior to sharpening. With the blade lockpin in place, this portable cutter is safe to transport and sets up virtually anywhere on the job site. Designed with two different length leg tubes provides the user with two height options. A large table surface allows sure-handed control and prevents damage to the workpiece. The table’s “feed-thru” design also allows long angle cuts for the roof hips and valleys.


International Roofing ExpoMalco looks forward to seeing you at the 2017 International Roofing Expo March 1-3 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, where we’ll feature a number of our high-quality roofing tools!
