Tools from General Siding Supply


Tapco Tools

The Hardest-Working Tools in the Business.

Reliability and speed are your best friends on the jobsite. That’s why, for quick and precise metal bending and slitting, look to Tapco Tools. We’ve been building the best tools in the industry for over 50 years. Our comprehensive range of brakes suits every application and material—from vinyl and aluminum, to copper and kynar-coated steel. Brake Buddy and Cut-Off hand tools make roll-forming and cutting simple, and our complete selection of sawing, coiling and slitting solutions delivers maximum versatility

The PRO 19
The PRO 19 delivers added value with more efficient bending and storage to reduce time-consuming handling and flipping of material. It efficiently creates soffit, fascia, custom brick mold, gutter aprons, chimney flashing, drip edges, window casing and sill trim, and easily produces flashing for any roof application. The locking system is efficient, using a pulling motion rather than a pushing motion, allowing you to be closer to the tool when working with large coil. The brakes’ individual bending handles allow you to get closer to the work compared to loop-design handles that can inhibit proximity. Tapco’s patented Moving Pivot Hinge allows increased bending power without marring materials, while dual locking handles provide fast, secure clamping.

The PRO 14
The PRO 14 combines a 14" throat depth with a wide 2-3/8" mouth opening and patented inside working pockets. From soffit and fascia to custom brick mold, sill trim, window casing, chimney flashing and more, the PRO 14 easily produces custom pieces for any siding and roofing application. Its efficient, secure locking system uses a pulling motion rather than a pushing motion, allowing you to be closer to the tool when working with larger pieces. Individual bending handles also enhance easy operation, letting you get closer to the work. Our patented Moving Pivot Hinge allows increased bending power, and our unique hemming capability allows for 180-degree overbends to produce more rigid panels.

Midwest Snips
Midwest Tool and Cutlery manufactures the highest quality snips hand tools on the market today.
The blade life and cutting performance of Midwest Snips® aviation and tinner snip models is lab and field test proven to exceed that of all other snips manufacturers. Midwest Snips blades are stronger, more durable, and outlast all others in cutting edge life because they are formed from a hot drop-forging process and not stamped or cast. Cutting performance is superior because Midwest Snips blades require the least amount of user hand pressure to complete a cut and blades stay in adjustment longer than those of any other snip manufacturer.
