Ask FastCap / 3rd Hand HD twin pack vs 3rd Hand HD 2-piece system
« Last post by rspgarland on April 04, 2019, 10:12:50 AM »
What is the difference between the two above products? What is included in the 2-piece system? Is the universal foot included in the 2-piece or is it extra?

Perhaps you should move this to the "General" section for others to respond?

Can any one share your worst experience with laminate flooring? Mainly in rainy seasons how your floor turns out.

FastCap Product Problems / Little Lipper frozen bolt issue
« Last post by dvansi58 on March 02, 2019, 10:49:05 AM »
FYI, I ordered the Little Lipper router trim attachment about a week ago.  It arrived and the mounting bolt head broke off when trying to remove it from the metal shaft.  The customer service rep at Fastcap immediately sent me a new one.  Surprise!  This mounting bolt refuses to budge as well.  It's installed so tightly that I can't even spin the washer between the bolt and metal shaft.  I think there's an issue with the *embly line.  Beware.

Yes.  Depending on how wide, look for the links in the product description here.
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.

Are replacement blades available for the knives for Kaizen?
Ask FastCap / Acceptable fasteners for Stealth SpeedBrace
« Last post by v1king on January 16, 2019, 08:10:24 PM »
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.
