Kett Scissor Shears deliver precision cuts in a wide range of pliable materials with unique scissors action. The KD-480 Scissor Shears from Kett Tool has a stationary bottom blade and large “rabbit ear” blades to funnel thick, soft materials into the scissor jaws for a clean cut, without fouling or gouging.

The KD-480 Scissor Shears use a 5-amp pistol grip, variable speed 2500 RPM motor that cuts through pliable materials, such as carpet, carpet underlayment, foam rubber, linoleum, vinyl, woven wood fabric and chipboard. The KD-480 even handles heavy foil, light insulated wire, hardware cloth and mesh screening with ease. At 16 inches long and weighing just 4 pounds, the shears deliver a precise cut with adjustable cutting speeds that can be tailored for optimal results. All shear heads are precision made in the U.S. featuring A-2 tool steel blades for durability.

General-purpose Retractors Safely Secure Small Tools

The line of Gear Keeper General Purpose Retractors is a simple and convenient tethering solution that will safely secure a small tool while still having the benefit of extending and retracting the item as needed.

The line of Gear Keeper General Purpose Retractors is a simple and convenient tethering solution that will safely secure a small tool while still having the benefit of extending and retracting the item as needed.

Even small tools dropped from above are serious safety hazards. When working at heights, some of the most commonly used tools (pen knives, small screwdrivers, scissors) are often improperly secured and need to be tethered. The line of Gear Keeper General Purpose Retractors is a simple and convenient tethering solution that will safely secure a small tool while still having the benefit of extending and retracting the item as needed. Just pull it out, use it and let it go. It will automatically and safely retract back to its secure mounting.

Offering a range of three retraction forces and four mounting options that solve virtually all small tool tethering needs, the Gear Keeper family of general purpose retracting systems are the perfect solution for safely securing lightweight objects. These General Purpose Retractors are industrial strength devices with an extremely durable Spectra/Nylon lanyard line and are available with a choice of retraction forces and mounting options.

Intended to match retraction force to the weight of the tool they are being used with, the model RT4-00XX series of General Purpose Retractors are offered in retraction forces of 3, 6 and 9 ounces and all come with Gear Keeper’s patented Quick Connect/Release system. The retractable devices provide lanyard extensions up to 36 inches for ample reach when extended and can be attached to the user by a choice of four mounting options. Each of the 3, 6 or 9 ounces retractors are available with either a snap mount, threaded stud mount, aluminum carabiner or Velcro strap mounting device.

Samco Machinery introduces the Hands-Free Multi-Product Roll Forming Line, a high-performance line engineered for the specific needs of customers producing multiple profiles.

Samco Machinery’s latest innovative rollforming line is designed to produce products for “Just-in-Time” production. This machine has the ability to perform at variable speeds up to 60 feet per minute, depending on the punching pattern and part lengths. Very much a “hands-free” machine, the entire process is automated from the moment coil leaves the uncoiler until finished product exits the cut-off.

Features include:

  • 10K double-ended uncoiler with hydraulic mandrel expansion.
  • Universal Bottom Driven Roll Former with side-by-side tooling for “Just-in-Time” production.
  • Auto Pre-Punch/Notch Press Selection System with guiding system and AMS controller as required by “Just-in-Time” production.
  • Closed Loop Length Control Systems to maintain sufficient coil stock in the line.
  • Stop-and-Go Cut-Off Hydraulic Press mounted on the roll former base includes three sets of cut-off dies with auto-die change system.
  • Sweep unit with adjustable sweep with roller straightener dedicated for specific profile(s).
  • Just 2 feet of prevailing scrap on leading and trailing ends of coil.
