Come by the Performance Pavilion we’re at booth 51310 and see for yourself the state-of-the-art line of non-metal Sockets and Wrenches. T Mark Tools is excited to share its products and solve your problems.

Consumers are often challenged when repairing rusted steel brake lines while they are modifying,
restoring, or building custom vehicles. It is hard to decide what the best choice is for brake plumbing
when there are problems with the most readily available options: plated mild steel and traditional
Plated mild steel:
• Fairly inexpensive but the plating tends to deteriorate and rust.
Traditional stainless steel:
• Expensive, very hard to bend and flare, and unforgiving.
BrakeQuip has a better way. Our fully DOT-compliant EziBend 2, a copper-nickel alloy, is a cost
comparative solution to plated mild steel. This special cunifer blend contains less than 1.5% iron by
weight for superior corrosion resistance. Our EziBend 2 has been confirmed, through independent lab
testing, to meet or exceed industry standards – UNS C70600 and ASTM B111. EziBend 2 has higher
nickel content than the three leading competitors.

Rust and dents are inevitable, but with the help of the industry’s strongest abrasives technology, they can also be quickly and effectively repaired. To help drivers resolve these issues conveniently and affordably, 3M Auto today announced the launch of its revolutionary 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Sheets.
3M™’s proprietary Precision-Shaped Grain technology is engineered to act like a cutting tool, slicing through metal up to five times longer for increased productivity. The technology housed in the 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Sheets continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges – slicing cleaner and faster, lasting twice as long as other high-performance abrasives. This optimal mineral breakdown allows for a significantly longer lifespan than conventional abrasives. With these new sanding sheets, auto DIYers will be empowered to complete more body repair projects with fewer sheet changes, while applying significantly less pressure over a shorter amount of time.
