Kett Tool Company has introduced the KL-2020 14-Gauge Nibbler, wrench-free nibbler featuring a rotating head for operation. The KL-2020 boasts a die design that allows for maneuverability in cutting sheet metal.
 
Metal fabricators, auto manufacturers and construction crews will appreciate the KL-2020 nibbler that can be locked into four different positions (in 90-degree increments). A rotation of the hand changes the angle of the die while the free-floating punch design extends time between replacements.
 
The KL-2020 cuts 14-gauge cold rolled (C.R.) mild steel and most grades of stainless to 16-gauge. At just 10.5 inches and four pounds, this four-amp, 2500 RPM straight handle electric nibbler is easy to handle and store at any job site. It delivers a clean burr-free cut of flat and corrugated sheet metal up to 65 inches per minute.
 
The KL-2020 Nibbler is available through authorized dealers. For more information or to locate a dealer, users can visit Kett Tool or call (513)271-0333.

Englert Inc. Acquires Roselle Tool and Die

Englert Inc. acquires Roselle Tool and Die, which was established in 1946 and served Englert as a vendor for over 40 years. Roselle Tool and Die has closed in Roselle, New Jersey, and is opening an expanded shop within Englert’s new manufacturing and office building at Two Amboy Avenue in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

Owner George Kaminski, who has been with Roselle for 31 years, purchased the business 20 years ago from its founder. Kaminski was featured in the first edition of Tool and Die Design by McGraw Hill, which highlighted six of his strip layouts, and die designs.

He is bringing long-term employees Don Howe and Roman Fayngersh, with him. Ed Lovis, who has been Englert’s only in-house tool and die maker, will join the three men at the new location.

They are expecting delivery of new hi-tech equipment to make Englert’s tool and die making among the best in the industry. Kaminski estimates that 80% of the machine tools currently in use at Englert were designed and built by his team.

Kaminski is looking forward to the new assignments they are expecting. He said, “We have a whole list of new die parts to make, including a number of new gutter components. We are excited and ready to go.”
