New patented Warrior™ Power Tool System kit provides a revolutionary proficiency advantage for bench jewelers and jewelry manufacturers for split-lap abrasive pre-finishing, finishing and polishing
Product engineers from JoolTool®, a division of DEP Enterprise and Development, Inc., developed and tested the Warrior™ system with various accessories through Rich Bohr, 3M’s account executive for the creative arts market and jewelry products research specialist to deliver a new power tool system kit called the Warrior™ capable of performing split-lap abrasive pre-finishing, finishing and polishing at the bench. The unit is compact and contains a 1/20 hp motor with full torque at all speeds. The motor is comparable and exceeds other 1/8 hp motors on output torque ratio. Here’s what is included in the kit and how the system works:
The patented Warrior™ Power Tool System kit contains (A) the Warrior™ variable speed motor with full torque from 500 to 5000 rpm and a tapered spindle (B) a mounted allen wrench, (C) 11 assorted 3M pre-cut self-adhesive abrasive accessories with one patented Ninja™ disc backpad and (D) a hard felt split-lap cut to JoolTool’s® patented Ninja™ âsee throughâ design specifications.
To complete a portable workstation for the bench jeweler generalist:
- The Warrior™ is mounted on a low utility stand (E) with casters
- Select a utility stand with drawers and shelves for convenient and ready access to the assorted abrasive discs and Warrior™ accessories
- The Warrior™ is connected to the small portable Handler Super Sucker II dust collector (F)
- A standard swing-arm lamp (G) is attached for best viewing of the work being performed.
With the compact size of the patented Warrior™ system and the portable workstation, the unit is positioned adjacent to the jeweler’s workbench and is easily rolled back when not in use. For grinding, sprue removal, deburring, abrasive split-lap work, pre-finishing and polishing, the bench jeweler is no longer required to leave their bench workstation for these related procedures and can accomplish them more quickly over using traditional procedures.
The featured Warrior™ Power Tool System kit retails for $269.00 and is available from Progress Machine and Tool Corp at 800-841-8665. For additional information about the kit, contact Anie Kaplan at JoolTool®, Inc.
