The vibra-tite threadlocker display has become my favorite item to show off to our customers.  Vibra-Tite has come up with a very good display for their new 2ml threadlocker bullet tubes.  The unique thing about the bullet tubes is that they are reusable.  There has been sever threadlocker products in 10ml pouches but were never reusable.  Vibra-Tite’s unique screw on cap allows for 15-25 uses per tube. 

100 Vibra-TITE 121 2ml. Bullet Tubes – Medium Strength (Removable) Threadlocker, a general purpose product.

100 Vibra-TITE 140 2ml. Bullet Tubes – High Strength Threadlocker ( 2ml. Bullet Tube ) is a red general purpose adhesive for permanent threaded assemblies.

My father and I are a couple of those guys who are always fixing things in the garage.  This is how we stumbled across Alvin’s Lab Metal.  We were trying to fix a cosmetic dent in a old Honda motorcycle gas tank.  This was well before the big google boom, where you could just type it in an find an answer.  We turned to thomasnet and found a small family business called Alvin products.  They advertised a one component all body metal filler referred to as lab metal.  We were impressed with the product and asked about becoming a distributor.  I just want to take a moment to explain what lab metal is and where it can be used.

Ready-to-use metal repair putty, dent filler and patching compound. Durable metal filler for fast, permanent repairs. A unique, quality problem-solver! Lab-metal ready-to-use repair compound spreads like paste and hardens quickly into metal.

Lab Metal comes out of the can with the consistency of peanut butter.  You are able to thin this  product  by using Alvin’s lab solvent.  Once you are done using the Lab Metal put a cap full of Lab Solvent in to keep it from hardening.  That is how Lab metal air cures.  Once it is applied the solvent is evaporated turning it into metal.  Once it is cured you can drill it, tap it, sand it. 

Aluminum-filled, one-part repair putty.  Fills dents and flaws easily and economically.  Proven in unlimited applications!

Try  High Temperature Lab Metal – repairs up to 1000 F.  Perfect for Powder Coaters!
