Ask FastCap / Re: Acceptable fasteners for Stealth SpeedBrace
« Last post by FastCap on January 18, 2019, 08:41:59 AM »
Sorry about that.  We will work to get this information online. The braces are designed to be mounted with either Fastcap’s Powerhead *s, or with conventional bugle-head or drywall *s. You just need any * with a head size greater than ¼” (so I would NOT try using a trim * or the like). The shank and thread specifications do not matter too much. The *s simply need to hold the brace in place so it does not slide in the x/y direction, and so that it stays where it should be during counter installation. Once the counter is positioned over the brace, the weight of the countertop will be holding the backside of the speed brace (inside the pony wall), and the countertop has more weight NOT overhanging than it will overhang, so essentially the weight of the countertop itself will provide the downforce needed to keep the brace secure, so that the extended part acts as a perfect steel backer for the overhanging countertop.

Ask FastCap / Acceptable fasteners for Stealth SpeedBrace

I'm mounting a ~18" wide quartz countertop on a pony wall that's just shy of 9' long. I purchased a set of the 12" Stealth Speedbraces which I plan to install prior to the countertop company's installation. They claim I don't need braces for a 12" overhang, but I figured it cannot hurt to add a little extra safety to the installation.

My question is, is there a prescribed fastener size for mounting the brackets? I know they are countersunk to accept the fastcap 9/16" *, but I can't justify special ordering a pack of *s when I only need 16 (4 per brace).

I originally tried contacting the countertop sales *ociate for an engineer's specification for bracing or anything of the sort and was basically told they don't provide installation of bracing and she couldn't tell me any specs. I'm a little bewildered, but this is the local company that Ikea uses for their countertop sales and the stone has already been templated and paid for, so I don't have much choice other than to do any bracing on my own.

Ask FastCap / Vacuum option with ChopShop Saw Hood?
« Last post by leemccarthyn on December 23, 2018, 03:25:10 AM »
I recently purchased one of your hoods to use with my Bosch glide saw. The table onto which my saw is attached is deeper than a standard stand and is essentially a cabinet with a recessed (4") back (small shop so am using the space below the saw for storage). I mounted the hood to the table. The bottom of the extended hood rests in close proximity to the back of the table and there is not sufficient room for a collection bucket (the hood material is just a couple of inches from the table/cabinet back). I suppose there are a number of options available to me, but before I try to get to (unnecessarily) creative, was wondering if there was a dust collector I could attach to the hood using the velcro at the bottom and attach a vacuum to the collector?  (Thought that might be why the velcro is there, but there were no instructions in the box, so I apologize if this is covered in them.) If that won't work, I can build a dust collection box onto the back of the table and place a vacuum attachment on it...

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately we do not have nylon or uhmw plastic caps available at this time. Our stock caps are made from PVC if that kind of plastic will work for your application.
