Blair Equipment Co., Inc., producers of precision sheet metal holemaking tools and spotweld cutters that are used in automotive body repairs, fabrication and restoration, introduces a new Rotabroach Sheet Metal Hole Cutter Combo Kit.
The new kit (part no. 11320) combines two of the most popular kits, the small diameter kit (part no. 11090) and the large diameter kit (part no. 11091), into one convenient package. Included in the set are 13 sizes of Rotabroach Cutters from 5/16” to 1-1/2”.
Rotabroach sheet metal cutters can drill holes in materials up to ¼” or ½” thick depending on diameter. They’re ideal for use in all types of automotive and metal fabrication, maintenance and electrical applications, spotweld removal and plug holes for welding. The kit is packaged in a sturdy plastic storage case and includes two arbor assemblies, extra pilots, center punch, washers and instructions on use. Rotabroach Cutters can be used in most hand-held electric drills and in drill presses.
Rotabroach sheet metal hole cutters are made of M2 H.S.S., hardened and precision ground. The annular or hollow design cuts only at the periphery of the hole, leaving the center as a solid slug of material. Because there is no center point or “dead zone” as with conventional hole making tools, the annular cutter configuration has demonstrated the ability to drill holes up to three times faster and last 10 times longer than twist drills or hole saws. The cutters make holes that are virtually burr-free and do not deform the surrounding material, even on thin sheet metal. The Rotabroach Cutters are made in the USA.
The Rotabroach Combo Kit joins Blair’s series of holemaking and auto body tools. Blair offers Rotabroach annular cutters which are available individually or in kits, spotweld cutters and kits for auto body repair, panel removal and restoration. For larger hole requirements, Blair’s Holecutters are available in sizes from 11/16” thru 3″ for materials up to 1/8″ thick. Other tools include the pneumatic Enforcer Spotweld Drill and the Tornado II portable paint shaker, which are used extensively in collision shops throughout North America.
