Product Description

The most complete aluminum repair station "from a name you know and trust!"

The idea here is that you have everything you need for aluminum repair, within easy reach in a self-contained system. The tools lock away so they do not wander the shop and become contaminated with steel particles.

As you probably know aluminum panel repair is a different process than that for steel panels. Aluminum is a softer material it stretches easily. That is why it is alloyed with magnesium or silicon in cosmetic panels. We include two different alloys of stud pin for bonding with the various panels.

Aluminum is also work hardened; meaning when it is stamped into shape it becomes stronger. When the panel is bent in a collision it becomes stronger still. Flex it too much and it breaks or cracks.

Sometimes in order to relieve this over-hardening and be able to pull the damaged area needs to be heated the allow the metal to release. The panel must always be heated to about 400 degrees while under pull in order for the panel to set in new position. Hence the inclusion of an infrared thermometer and digital temperature set heat gun to heat the panel. A self-locking squeeze puller makes it easier to pull and heat at the same time. This squeeze puller can pull on one or several pins. For heavier pulls a leverage puller and for lighter finesse pulls a single pin hand puller are included.

Put steel particles into the aluminum panel and you will start the electrolytic process of galvanic corrosion. The aluminum will corrode around the steel contamination ruining the paint on your finished jobs. In order to avoid this a separate set of working tools must be maintained. That is why we have included a separate set of hammers, dollies, and nylon shaping tools, body file, and an Air drive for 3M Roloc discs. Again the tools lock away in the rolling tool station, also included.

Aluminum forms a thin coating of aluminum oxide after being exposed to the air in a little as an hour. This oxidization has a much higher melting temperature than the original aluminum material. We have included a stainless steel brush for last minute cleaning.

The capacitor discharge welder is 110 volt powered. Re-charge time for the capacitors is less than 3 seconds. The ground is on the weld gun itself. This leads to a more successful weld due to the close location. The fact that we have two ground points on either side of the weld gun also leads to a more successful weld rate. And of course when working on a roof or the middle of a hood having to attach separate ground leads can cause extra and unnecessary refinish time.

Includes:
  • Hammers, nylon & polished steel dollies
  • infrared temp gauge
  • digital heat gun
  • instructional CD
  • storage cart
  • 110 volt Alu-Spot welder.

Freight/Shipping

All shipments are Freight on Board (FOB) Greensboro and become the property of the customer when they leave our dock. Standard Tools and Equipment Co. uses common carriers, FedEx Ground, UPS, and independent freight haulers for shipping. We negotiate the most competitive freight rates possible and pass these savings along to our customers. We make every effort to minimize freight charges to our customers and provide for timely delivery. We quote shipping rates at the time of quoting an order as an estimated number. However, freight charges fluctuate depending on circumstances at the time of booking. The shipping charges on a quote cannot be guaranteed for an extended period of time. If freight changes from the time of the quote to the time of shipment, you will be contacted and a separate invoice will be sent for the additional shipping charges. This is more common when shipping by flatbed. Of course, customers are always welcome to provide their own truck pickup, but need to contact us prior to ensure the correct size truck is ordered for pickup. Please let us know of any questions at 800-451-2425.

Shipping Times
Paint booths: Shipping time is 5-10 business days to build and ship most booth models.

Delivery and Unloading

Delivery
Standard Tools and Equipment (STE, Tools USA) needs to know if the delivery address is residential or a limited access location prior to shipping. Freight carriers have restrictions on delivering to residential addresses and may require pick-up at freight terminal.

Storage Fees
STE can schedule production of your order for a later date to meet the customer's wishes, but the scheduled needed date must be notated on the signed docs at the time of order. The customer is to accept delivery of the order upon completion. If the order is complete and cannot ship, storage fees of $125 per day will start on day 5 of storage. If the customer doesn't notify STE of a specific need-by date or if there is a special delivery request, STE will ship the order out when 1. payment is received and 2. upon completion of the order.

Unloading
The customer is responsible for unloading the shipment from the carrier’s truck. This may require a forklift and/or lift gate service. The STE customer care team can advise you prior to shipping what will be needed to unload your shipment and the approximate weight of the shipment. The customer is responsible for offloading their equipment and will need to have the proper equipment at the time of delivery. Paint booths are shipped in wooden crates that are large and heavy. They cannot be delivered via liftgate and can only be offloaded from the delivery truck with a forklift that has long forks or long fork extensions. Short forklift forks will not fully lift the crate, leaving it to drag or drop, causing damage to the booth. If the order is unable to be delivered, there will be additional fees incurred from the freight line. If the customer is unable to have the proper equipment available at delivery, they can have the booth delivered to the terminal for pickup in an approved trailer by the customer. This is beneficial if the customer wants to open the crate on the trailer and offload it in pieces.

Tracking
While STE will provide customers with an estimated time of delivery and tracking information, we can’t provide a specific time, or schedule a time for that service. The customer can contact the freight carrier directly to schedule a delivery or check on freight delivery status.

Damages
Any charges or damages that may be incurred as a result of unloading from the carrier’s truck is the customer’s responsibility. Depending on your situation, it may be advantageous to have your products shipped to a freight terminal where the freight company’s personnel can load it onto your trailer or truck.

All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt. For your protection, any external damage must be noted on the Bill of Lading at the time of delivery in order to qualify for a claim against the freight carrier. Concealed damages must be reported to the freight company within three days of delivery. It is the customer’s responsibility to file for damage claims against the freight company.

Shortages/missing parts from paint booth orders must be reported to Tools USA customer service within 30 days of delivery.


Customer Pickup Order Requirements

Customers may pickup orders from the STE warehouse, located in Greensboro, NC. It’s important to call STE before you plan to arrive to pickup your order so that we can ensure your order is in stock and ready for you to pickup. We can only offer pickup at our warehouse Monday-Friday from 8:30AM – 4:00PM.

Customers must bring an appropriate trailer with straps for securing when picking up equipment. STE equipment cannot be loaded onto a car, truck, or SUV. The equipment must fit securely and be on a trailer or proper weight limitations. We can advise you of the proper pickup trailer and vehicle prior to you arriving. STE reserves the right to refuse to load equipment onto inappropriate trailers. STE is not liable for any damage incurred to the customer’s vehicle or equipment once the equipment has been secured to the customer’s trailer.
