Re: Dremal

I also could add that I never use my drill the 7300 on the high speed, I always use on the low speed. I sure don't want my drill skipping across the windshield while on high speed. :o

Re: Dremal

For me the Dremel that comes with the Delta kits, I believe it is what they call 7300 has proven to be sufficient for all of my glass drilling needs. Keep a fresh battery and a good bit. It is a perfect fit for my hands and has more than enough power. I will periodically have to replace the battery ...

Re: Just starting out

I guess that it depends on how much work that you want to do. Me personally when I got started I went ahead and got the Delta kit that had 2 bridges and all of the extras that come along with it. I want to be able to work on 2-3 cars at a time if need be, and that will happen if you are committed to...

Re: 12V Moisture Evaporator

Great tool whenused with the heat sink tool. I work differently from Kenny as I work outside in chasing the moisture out, I feel the the heat expands the glass which shuts the damage up, so by squeezing the ouside it chases it out of the cooler middle area. Living in a wet country I have carried ou...

Re: Drilling

The only time that I pop a bulls eye is when I drill at the end of a crack so as to terminate it. For the most part the only other time that I use a drill is when the damage is so bad that I have to cap the break and drill a new whole so that it can be filled. Most of the time the rock that hit the ...

Re: Need advice on a chip repair

Looks like it might have significant impact breakage, if that is so you might have to clean away debris and cap break with pit resin and re-drill a new entry. Other than that looks like pretty simple repair.

Cut out tools

Is there anybody currently using the FEIN oscillating tool to cut out windshields? Or the BTB cut out Tool? Was considering adding one of these to my arsenal, wondering if some of you have any experience with either? I have a bad shoulder and could use all of the help that I can get. I will apprecia...

Re: Best Brand windshield

Probably hard to find one period. Car is 32 years old, many times when I have a customer with a car that old I am simply not able to obtain it through my distributers anyway. Many have to obtain one at a Salvage yard, However from my experience all glass from the most expensive to the cheapest, chip...

Re: Urethane Cleaning

Sounds like you must have had the wrong people to install. There is just no excuse for such sloppiness in the glass business. Sorry to hear about your predicament, when I do get glue on something it is never the upholstery. I use a denatured alcohol to get glue off of any metal, urethane glue on uph...
