spotlight /top tools Next-Generation Copper Pipe Swage Tool for Reliably Swaging Copper, Aluminum Tubing RectorSeal introduces the PRO-Fit Precision Swage Kit, a collection of six drill bit swage tool sizes designed for quickly, reliably and inexpensively swaging copper and aluminum tubing used in split-system air conditioning, refrigeration and plumb- ing work. PRO-Fit Precision Swage Kit bits used with a (minimum) 12v, 2,000- Plus rpm drill or impact driver combine friction, heat and pressure to reform tubing into a perfect swage for joining two similar-sized tubes. The kit is especially for use with any mini split, VRF or split system unitary equipment installation. CHECK OR CIRCLE #101 Enhance Jobsite Effi ciency with New Soil Pipe Cutter The new Ridgid Model 286 Soil Pipe Cutter makes it easier than ever for trade professionals to get quick, repeated cuts on soil pipe up to six inches. The tool's single-stroke operation streamlines the cutting process while the outward-facing hooks simplify connect- ing clay and cast iron pipe. The integrated handles are easy to adjust, helping users optimize angles and make repeated cuts with less fatigue. Long handles and a built-in cutting mechanism also provide the mechanical advantage to minimize cutting effort and enhance ergonomics. CHECK OR CIRCLE #102 Milwaukee Introduces Cushion Grip Screwdriver with Schrader Valve Bit Milwaukee Tool has grown its hand tool offering with the addition of a crucial tool for HVAC and other industrial applications — the 13in1 Cushion Grip Screwdriver with Schrader Valve Bit. The new tool features a durable tri- material cushion grip handle with an anti-peel design to ensure the grips will not fall off. For more leverage and precise control, a wrench-ready bolster enables users to utilize a wrench to maximize the tightening and loosening force. The included Schrader Valve Bit is designed for installation and removal of common Schrader valves. CHECK OR CIRCLE #104 Unique Complexities of Mechanical Piping, Retrofits Handled with Ease with Polygon McElroy's new Polygon is a multifac- eted machine for miter, butt and socket fusion of polypropylene pipe. The 0-45 degree mitering options are designed to meet the unique complexi- ties of mechanical piping installations and retrofits, saving time and costs on purchasing molded or fabricated fittings. The Polygon is McElroy's first manual butt fusion machine com- patible with the DataLogger, providing documentation that joints were fused according to standard. With its lightweight and simple design, it is perfect for tie-in fusions in confined spaces and fusing overhead. The Polygon easily adapts to socket fusion by swapping out the jaws with an optional Spider 125 Series 2 Adapter Kit. A stable base makes this versatile machine ideal for prefabrication and benchtop use. CHECK OR CIRCLE #105 Today's top tools really make the cut when it comes to efficiency — offering savings in both labor and costs. The latest tools on the market have also made great strides in ergonomics, with the comfort of users being a top priority in product development. The following is a snapshot of recently released tools and instruments. Tools of the Trade Inspection Tool Bag Features Quick-Release Pop Top The new BG36 Inspection Tool Bag from Fieldpiece Instruments is designed spe- cifically for HVACR professionals to have everything they need in hand for quick inspections. It is large enough to carry hand tools and meters yet small enough to be convenient and comfortable. The unique quick-release pop top combines the easy access of a small open tote with the protection of an enclosed bag so tools don't fall out, and they're protected from dirt and inclement weath- er. The magnetic lock keeps the bag securely closed, but quickly opens when popped to reveal hand tools, meters and drill bits. A magnetic tray in the cover adds a convenient spot to hold cabinet screws or washers. The weather-protected sturdy base also keeps the bag from tipping over when in use.
