Thank you Gold Star. I guess then, the ultimate and final question would be. WHY GO MECHANICAL AT ALL? So far I haven't heard any compelling reasons for mechnical systems from anyone other than those interested in selling the systems. I also forgot to say that he says that it allows for a thicker re...

w/ your pressure systems do you notice an improvement in time required to do repair, better quality and ease of repairing contaminated damage over the standard (non mechanical) systems? Thanks for all your input!

Also I should mention that he claims it ( the high levels of pressure that the superglass system can achieve) makes old breaks that may be contaminated easier to repair. Any truth to this.

While we're on the topic of machine based repair systems, what are your thoughts on other systems. I ask because I have someone who wants to sell me a couple of super glass's systems, which he claims works better because you can get 20 to 40 lbs of vacuum/pressure. I know most people who post here s...

Good insights, I never thought about the manual pump issues. What about the vacuum created by evacuating the air? Is this just hype, or would it actually help make a faster and/or stronger repair?

Anyone used <snip>

Saw this on the web and thought it looked like a lot of hype. The machine is a God awful looking monstrosity (hope it never falls off a windshield, it would probably put a huge dent in the car). Anyway, I was wondering if there's any real science behind this thing, since they claim that the contrapt...

Bridges: plastic vs. metal vs. nylon/fiberglass

I don't understand what you mean. I know I'm not the sharpest ball bearing out there and I'm sure there's humor intended and will probably laugh (at myself) when you explain though. Thanks Jeff.

Full Time

Just thought I'd inquire about people's opinions on plastic injectors and bridges v.s. metal injectors and bridges. I have heard quite a bit of religion on how plastic injectors work just as well even though they don't look as cool and that if a plastic bridge falls off the glass your not as likely ...

I guess I should make it clear that I don't intend on working on any windshields until I develop a reasonable level of proficiency. I certainly don't want to be a "hack" and have too much respect for all of you out there to be a thorn to the business. I should also mention that I'll be getting train...

Ethics???

Screenman, You have great advice and insight. I am wanting to see if I like doing the work first without committing a whole lot of capital. IF it's a good fit I won't need to get any loans since I have many sources for capital, just not a whole lot of liquid $$$ if you know what I mean. I have no il...
