We are so excited that we were selected by Hearth & Home Magazine for a 2015 VESTA FINALIST AWARD at the Home, Patio & BBQ Expo in Nashville (March 3-8, 2015)!
The Vesta Awards are presented by Hearth & Home magazine, and were created as a recognition of accomplishments in Hearth and Outdoor Room categories. The Vesta Awards were created to recognize and honor companies and products for innovation in design and/or technology. Judging teams are made up of retailers, distributors, product designers, test lab engineers, affiliate leaders and industry experts, and are selected to be a balanced representation of different disciplines. The awards are given for specific products, not for lines of products!
Our award, was for the newly designed and released Retractable Orifice Reamer Cleaner (patent pending). This unique service tool is a versatile pocket pen to allow the user to clean or ream out orifices of different sizes without changing tools. When done it fits in their pocket!
The pen is a two part tool. The housing is made from .375 diameter 6061 aluminum with a diamond knurl placed in the middle for finger control. The reamer is made from heat treated steel for strength and long life. The tool allows for a range from .125” to size #52 (0.0635”). The calibration ranges have been permanently etched on the top of the stem for easy view and there is a hex head for firm finger grip when in use.
These two parts are connected by a multipurpose rubber “O” that fits between the reamer and the housing. Once the desired calibration is selected, the pen can be locked into position by being lightly turned in either direction. When done, turn the tool back to center and slide closed.
The Retractable Orifice Reamer Cleaner is a great addition to our other products designed to assist the service professional such as the quality orifices, gas conversions fittings, gauging drills, reamers, and broaches. Check us out for all your propane and natural gas needs.
