The Extractor PROV28 Milwaukee is Crystal Glass’s newest option for those
looking for rugged performance and strength. The tool has 40 to 50 percent
more power than the company’s 18-volt tool, and its battery will run twice
as long as conventional tools according to the company.
A.N. Designs now offers its UltraWiz UltraThin Paint Protection Blades
(51C1, 2, 3 and 4 Series), which are ready to use right from the package.
The blades are coated with a special resilient, durable coating, designed
to reduce the risk of scratches and paint damage while cutting out windshields
with exposed pinchwelds. Because the coated shank is narrow, the blade
can maneuver easily around tight radius corners without damaging paint,
according to the company.

Wood’s Powr-Grip® Releases Powr-Press Vacuum Hold-Down
The new Powr-Press from Wood’s Powr-Grip is designed to provide a fully
adjustable, hands-free tool with strong hold-down action for automotive
side mouldings, glue-on windshield mouldings and body emblems. The Powr-Press
acts as a third hand and assists technicians by keeping parts in place
without having to hold them in place manually or to apply masking tape
while adhesive is drying.
Within the system, a stainless steel bracket is fastened to the top of
the vacuum cup with the aid of an adjustment knob, which enables the bracket
to slide or swivel as necessary to hold a part in position. Each end of
the bracket is equipped with a 3-inch threaded screw with an adjustment
knob on top and a swiveling pressure foot on the bottom. Once the vacuum
cup has been secured to the surface, the bracket can be swung into its
holding position. The adjustment screws then are turned to apply the desired
amount of pressure.
