Re: Windshield Repair Olympics

I did not attend Auto Glass Week this year but it sounds like it was well attended, and for the second year in a row Delta Kits sponsored the Windshield Repair Olympics. I couldn't help but notice that the the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place competitors in the Windshield Repair Competition and Auto Glass Te...

Re: Crack repair multiple failure

Sorry, missed this somehow. You've probably already talked with one of my co-workers about this but for the sake of other forum readers I'll give you my 2 cents. We have found that the size and shape of the drill bit, along with the size, shape, and sharpness of the point on the tool being used are ...

Re: Air bubbles around bullseye edges.

Gotcha. I'm not opposed to trying to cure under pressure if nothing else works, but if it is happening frequently something else is going on, especially with a bullseye.

It might have something to do with the Pandemic or everyone being busy, but I think the reality is that most who were once active here have moved to Facebook groups, which admittedly are more suited for those who want to build r...

Re: Auto Glass Technician Olympics

Attendance at Auto Glass Week was low this year, in part due to COVID, and likely in part to it being held in June, which is a really busy time of year for most of us in the auto glass industry, but the competitions for Auto Glass Technicians, Windshield Repair Technicians, Calibration Technicians, ...
