« Last post by Scott Cleveland on July 14, 2018, 07:53:13 PM »
I happen to be involved in a maker space. We have 10 "zones" or individual work shops.  We are going to color code each zone however I need a few more colors.  Any chance you have a resource for this?
Ask FastCap / Re: Canadian distribution

The Canadian govít imposed an Anti-Dumping law that restricts the importing of goods made in China. Iím not sure if this applies to American made goods. I donít know all of the details except that even our Canadian dealers have stopped ordering certain products because the duties on these products are so high. The best way for an online customer to purchase our products in Canada is for them to send it via USPS to avoid large duty charges which shipping UPS would lead to. The other option is for them to order from Richelieu or Lee Valley or a company called Marathon. I know some of these companies donít sell our full line of products and that Richelieu will only sell to people if they are business owners and have an account with them. So this creates an availability problem for our customer. Iím not sure of a way around this for people who need to purchase a specific product directly from us that we cant ship in the mail. Sorry.

2p-10 can be used to bond wood and plastic with no problem. Care needs to be used with the Activator though. The Activator can cause certain plastics to discolor. 2p-10 does not need the Activator to work and in most cases where plastic is being glued, we recommend skipping the Activator.

FastCap Product Problems / RCV AMPERAGE
« Last post by Fasthand on May 01, 2018, 01:36:42 PM »
I have been using the original RCV Fastcap for 3 years on my Vac and it suddenly stopped working. However, it does turn-on other electric devices plugged into it, but will not turn on not my vac it still works fine on low AMPS tools. I just noticed that my RCV has a 11amps limit and my Vac actually draws 13 amps. I donít know if that is the problem because it has been working on my 13 amp vac for years.
I have 3 questions:
1- any clue why it just stopped turning on the Vac? It turned it on for the past 3 years! Any way to fix this?
2- the newer model of RCV is rated 15 amps so it should work with my 13 amp Vac. But will my original remote ( smaller remote inside a velcro band) turn on the new Rcv? I really like the velcro band, It wraps very securely around my wrist, itís not in he way and I find it very convenient. I would like to use the old remote with the new 15 AmpsmRCV if possible.
3- the new yellow remote model that comes with the new 15 Amps RCV is much larger than the older model and comes with a thin rubber band that would be difficult to secure firmly on my wrist because of itís much larger size.  Is there a velcro band available for the new remote?

We cannot produce Fastcaps in any other plastic materials.

If you are able to send us edge banding in a different material that is 5Ē or less wide and less than 3/4mm thick we can process the edging on our machines and turn it into caps.

Or you can purchase our Custom Color Punch Kit that has a 3/8Ē die. The tool will punch through material up to 1mm thick, and the tool kit includes our double sided speed tape to turn your material into Fastcaps.

Is the foam safe for collectibles?

Hi, I am a collector of pocket knives.  This product would be great to store and display my pocket knife collection.  What is the foam made from?  Will it in time breakdown and harm my collection? In other plastic products, some of the plastics would "gas out", especially in warmer climates, and the gas would affect the metal that the pocket knives are made from.  Some of these knives cost thousands of dollars.  Please advise if this product is safe for my knife collection.
