Few articles since the publication of my JIS screwdriver review have caused as much sensation or were as fun to write at the one on Plast-aid. Article, Motorcycle Consumer News – April, 2014 (PDF)
First off the product really works, and works far better than anything I’ve ever found for fixing plastic parts on motorcycles. The second was working with Randy Amen, the president of Plast-aid and one of the founders. I LOVE finding small companies that have found one thing that they do well, better than anyone else, and focus exclusively on it.
Lastly, the versatility of this stuff, never ceases to amaze me. You can find a link to a video on their site here that shows some of what you can do with it as it goes through its various curing stages. Link to Plast-aid website with video I’ve ended up using it to fix dishwasher racks, garage doors, my Lotus Elan as well as motorcycles. Try this stuff, you’ll love it and can’t believe you got along so far without it.
I’ve been looking all over for this clamp and can’t find it anywhere. If you can help me find it, I’d really appreciate it.
(UPDATE: The folks at Amazon.com came to the rescue with a similar clamp that works just great. Aluminum, so it does not rust like this one did.)
I wasn’t surprised to see Dave at MCN publish several Letters to the Editor about JIS screwdrivers, as I’d gotten half a dozen emails from people about the article as well. Here are the two that were published. Letters to Editor about JIS Screwdrivers.
I WAS surprised to see that Dave loved the idea of JIS screwdrivers that he went out and bought about a $100 worth of them and wrote an article about the ones he found. Hilarious! Dave’s follow-up review on JIS Screwdrivers
You should enjoy both of these, especially if you’re the geek-type mechanical type.
Motorcycle Consumer News – March 2013
No article I’ve written in the past year was as fun as this one. Stu Oltman provided the inspiration and I soon realized in talking with several other mechanic types that most did not know of JIS Screwdrivers. I’ve counted at least a dozen people that have ordered these screw drivers after I told them about them. Hope you enoy it. You can read it here.
