Universal Shroud

Clayton’s Universal Shroud fits right angle or straight line grinders making dust control possible for existing tools. It effectively eliminates airborne dust and captures most heavy particles while protecting workers and the environment from airborne hazardous dust, e.g. hexavalent chromium, lead, and cadmium. The edge of the abrasive disc is visible as the shroud swivels freely on the shaft keeping the hose out of the way. Its compact size makes it highly maneuverable and ideal for working in tight areas. Available in 1-, 2- or 3-inch sizes. GSA pricing is available. For more information visit jclaytonor call (800) 248-8650.

Grounding Clamp

The Bond-Rite grounding clamp from Newson-Gale protects against static electricity buildup in mobile or portable equipment. It creates and continuously monitors a low-resistance connection to ground, providing visual verification through a flashing LED indicator. Its tungsten carbide teeth and unique clamping action bite through insulating layers such as coated surfaces and built-up paint, resins, and adhesives. It is made of 316L stainless steel and is powered by a long-life lithium battery. For more information visit newson-gale.

Pocket Driver

Bosch Power Tools and Accessories launches the ultra-compact LITHEON 10.8-volt Pocket Driver (PS20). Forty-percent lighter and 33 percent more productive than other ultra-compact drill/drivers, it is small enough to fit into a tool belt pouch and lightweight and powerful enough to accomplish a majority of professional drill/driving tasks. The Pocket Driver can drive 100 3-inch screws per charge and drill holes up to 1/2-inch in diameter, more than enough to keep most professionals productive through the day. The variable speed trigger controls 0-400 rpm and more than 80-inch/pounds of torque. A clutch system, similar to those of standard drill/drivers, offers 10 drive and one “Max” drill setting for better control. The tool’s Clic-Change bit holder makes 1/4-inch hex shank bits changes quick and easy. And a LED light enhances visibility in dim working conditions, while a soft-grip handle makes the tool more comfortable for all day use. Comes complete with two batteries, 30-minute charger, soft carrying case and two bits. For more information visit boschtools or call (877) 267-2499.
