Topic: wire cut out system
Question: "any info or recommendations on a good system to buy"
I have had my glassbot for just over 2 years now and I have to say that
I really like it, so much that I hate having to pick up a cold knife
for anything. Knock on wood, but so far I have had 100% success in
"I was very slow to accept the wire removal method of modern vehicles but industry standards forced me to take the plunge. After countless hours of research, I decided to try your product and I used it today for the first time. I am a very happy customer and I can't wait to increase my proficiency in this process. I have been told that your system doesn't allow for monitoring of the wire tension during cut-out process in the way that manual methods do. After using your instrument, for the first time (after viewing your video tutorials) I learned that if you use the tool right, with the dash guards and proper methods as you prescribe, you will always know when and if the wire is too tight, binding, or cutting something other than urethane. Furthermore, my first time did not even take me that long and I loved how clean the glass came out. You have a great product here and I envision that you will become an industry standard in the near future. Great job, my friend.
"Hi Rick I am going out on my own and was looking for tools to make my job easier and present a more up to date and now image and saw this fantastic tool called a Glass Bot on your site and thought yep, that's me, I need one of those."
are a lot of glass tools out there that help us do our job and they
do just that, Help out! But I feel the Glass Bot does the work for us.
This tool will give you a professional edge you need in today's market.
Absolutely the finest machine you can own if you are in the business of glass replacement.
5x faster than manual winding tools.
Cutting with String (Just protecting the VIN plate)
20 seconds real time to cut the bottom bead of urethane on this car? Incredible.
We only protected the VIN plate to demonstrate the safety and ease of using our machine with our new SSCE Cutting Element.
Unequaled in performance, ergonomics, ROI and warranty.
NEW! Apex System
No matter what winding system you use, just looking at this new product let's you know we got game. We are working on the video this week but what a difference this product makes in the efficiency of cutting. We have just updated our kits to include one APEX Corner Tool. You will like it.
Placing the APEX in the corners aligns the cutting element for a very good angle on the adhesive. Less strain on the motor/battery and nice, clean cuts. We just did a 1034 with ease using wire on one side and string on the other to see the difference, using either cutting element didn't matter, excellent results.
Apex, the point a car (wire) should touch on the inside of a turn when following a proper line
Our NEW Glass Bot™ Lite is finally out of production and is shipping NOW! Just add your cordless drill to the mix and you have a powered machine to "do the work for you".
As with all Glass Bots, having the pulley system detached from the winding mechanism, provides a more versatile for a faster and easier removal process. Utilizing our new Cutting Elements, the Glass Bot™ Lite brings a whole new level of glass removal to the market.

"I had a Glass Bot Lite for about 2 weeks, I just had a chance to use it today, I used it on a quarter glass on a chevy impala.
The tool is amazing on the impala the fit was very tight, I used some creative placement of the anchor point and the tool. I am very happy, it worked well. Very impressed.
Great Job rick!!!"
Damage - Vehicle
We do not believe that paint damage to a vehicle should be accepted as common practice for glass replacement. Damage is being accepted, repaired and covered up so unsuspecting customers are not aware of it occurring.
This is wrong and we hope to change that.
Damage - Personal
Also, the assumption that being tired and sore at the end of the day is your reward for hard work.
This is also wrong and counterproductive to a long and healthy career in auto glass replacement.
Overhead winding motion is damaging to your shoulders and neck. We hope to change that forever.
And, if your listening to those manual winding tool manufacturers saying you don't have any control when using a powered winding machine, that is pure bullshit.

Why should you purchase a Glass Bot™?
We developed the Glass Bot with two distinct reasons in mind.
1. Elevate auto glass removal to an automated system,
reduce or eliminating strain.
2. Address the shift in auto glass design that dictated a new technique
for successful glass replacement without paint damage.
Why should your customer know you use one?
