New Equipment: April 2009
For owners of Omni Cubed Sink Hole Savers (SHS), the SHS Backsplash Mount Bracket is now available for easier manual polishing of backsplash pieces. The mount brackets attach to any length of SHS rail (4, 6 or 8-foot lengths) to create a versatile backsplash polishing stand which can be easily mounted to work benches, truck tailgates or walls. The unit securely holds pieces at the desired height and at any polishing angle (0 to 90 degrees of adjustment). There are no worries of backsplash breakage; the SHS provides protection of the piece during polishing. One set includes two mount brackets for use with one SHS. The product is made in the U.S.
On the hardware side, besides the switch from the HP PocketPC to Samsung Q1 Ultra TabletPC, the most welcomed enhancements in the hardware has been the integrated camera. With the built in camera, templators can save photographic information from every jobsite.
In total, over 280 updates have been made within the past 12 months. The majority of these have come at the request of customers, making the LT-55 XL a customer-developed and driven templating system.
