At Jet Equipment & Tools, a privately held Canadian distributor, exacting prod- uct manufacturing specifications produce excellent performance characteristics. Even with the product testing specifications from a controlled laboratory, the abrasive products manager still personally tries out the grinding and cutting wheels from time to time, working with the factory if he feels they are not just right.

He notes the general feel of the grinding wheel and whether it cuts freely with minimal vibration. Consistency is the key. When his results are reasonably close to the manufacturers’ controlled laboratory standards, he is satisfied.

The company has recently introduced PowerPlus TZ abrasive cut-off wheels that incorporate new technology developed in conjunction with a prominent German university research team.

Jet is based in Burnaby, B.C., and has six warehouses across the country. Further information can be obtained by calling 1-800-472-7685 and referring to this article, or by visiting www.jetequipment.com.
