HYDRAULIC HAND HELD SLOTTING TOOL

Part number: TC1279-501KIT


The hydraulic hand held duct slotting tool is a means of making duct end slots, easily, simply and quickly ie less than 1 minute to make a slot. The hydraulic tool exerts a force of 5 tonnes, and the jaws are made of hardened carbon steel, for a long service life. To operate, place tool on duct side or end, tighten side release valve knob, pump tool gently, until a slot is made. Release valve knob by unscrewing. Push jaw back using front return handle. Slots for joiners are made repeatedly, quickly and accurately. The slotting tool cuts a slot in the duct end to suit a standard connector (Part No’s. TC1279-226, TC1279-25, TC1279-27 & TC1279-320KIT). The kit is also provided with a plastic tool box, for transport.

FOOT OPERATED SLOTTING TOOL

Part number: TC1279-500KIT


The foot operated duct slotting tool is a means of making duct end slots, easily, accurately and quickly ie less than 1 minute to slot one end of a duct. By using a foot operated system a small effort is required to exert the large force necessary to make a slot. Both hands are free to hold the duct. The jaws are made of hardened carbon steel, for a long service life. To operate, place duct side or end, within the tools cutting guides, hold duct down flush with top face of tool, and press foot operated lever, until a slot is made. Release the slotting punch, using the foot operated release pedal. Remove and re-position duct for next slot. The slotting tool cuts a slot in the duct end to suit a standard joiner (Part No’s. TC1279-25, TC1279-27 & TC1279-320KIT); available separately. The kit includes one foot operated slotting tool and a metal tool box, for storage and transport, c/w a foam insert.

SIDE SLOTTING TOOL

The side slotting tools are used to make slots in the bottom and both sides at the end/s of duct.

This process is a simple mechanical means of preparing a length of duct for connection to another standard part: e.g. elbow, cross connector, tees,  adapter assembly, duct end or drop-offs, etc.
