Malco C5A Power Assisted Crimper
Make fast, easy, precise crimps in large or small round duct and pipe. Applications include 24 to 30-gauge (0.71 to 0.41 mm) galvanized steel duct, spiral duct, black stove pipe, or aluminum pipe. The drive shaft of the Crimper Turbo-X-Tool attachment inserts into the chuck of a minimum 14.4 Volt cordless or maximum 7 Amp A/C drill. A telescoping clamp adjusts to fit length and width of any drill housing. The installed Crimper attachment is easily operated with one hand. With the drill set at low forward drilling speed the rotation of meshing teeth on adjacent gears provides desired crimp and drives the metal out the right side of the tool. A 9:1 gear reduction ensures safety and control. Set crimper lever in the down position to open gears for easy insertion and removal of metal in the tool face slot. The narrow slot prevents fingers from entering the gear area. With the lever in up position, the crimping depth is factory set for 26 to 28-gauge (0.56 to 0.48 mm) Galvanized Steel. Back off the lever a stop at a time for lighter metals or readjust the maximum crimp with lever set screws. A clutch in the gear mechanism prevents damage to the crimper attachment if metal exceeds capacity.
