TopTech Finder is officially launching the expanded website at the 2013 SEMA Show (booth 10747).

"After expanding in August to support all body shop jobs, we heard from our customers that they wanted to add mechanical jobs to the site. In response, we quickly expanded the job board to handle skills and certifications specific to mechanical repair jobs,” said Jeff Herman, CEO of TopTech Finder.

“Launching support for mechanical jobs at SEMA is perfect timing. Not only does the show have growing support for the collision repair industry, but traditionally it is the place to be for racing, tuning, and repair techs.”

Eastwood is on a Roll - Introduces New Bench-Top English Wheel

The Eastwood Company has launched a new Bench-Top English Wheel – professional quality with a knock-down design! English Wheels have been staple tools of metal fabricators for years, but overall size and price constraints have often kept them out of reach of DIY-hobbyists and small shops. Eastwood’s new Bench-Top English Wheel overcomes those issues. Eastwood’s English Wheel offers a 20" throat and 18" internal height to make this unit one of the biggest bench-top English Wheels on the market. "When designing this English Wheel, we wanted to offer a professional quality tool that was within reach of DIY-metal shapers and small fabrication shops," said Mark Robidoux, Eastwood Product Manager. "Shipping a large item like an English Wheel can be costly, but the knockdown design we engineered into this English Wheel allows it to ship via Fed-Ex or UPS."
