So far this tool has been one of those tools you must have. I used it to remove fuel tank strap nuts that were rusted, I was very surprised how quickly the nuts heat up. I had to rotate a lever on a shaft that was frozen in a tight area surrounded by fiberglass. I was able to wrap the coil around the shaft and applied heat, made the job easy. Overall this tool is one that is a must have!Automotive User, Scottsboro, AL
Ever since repairing two induction bearing heaters for a friend, I have been intrigued with the principle. When the opportunity came up to purchase a Mini-Ductor II with additional coil set at a price I could afford, I went for it, realizing there were specific applications where my torch either could not be used or its proximity to combustibles was not safe to use. Induction heat offers a controlled localized intense heat immune to non-ferrous alloys, glass, paint, plastic, and flammables like gasoline that you just cannot get other ways, making it a reach-for tool in many situations.Don Anderson
My only wish is that I had this technology decades ago. It is so much safer than a torch and truly minimizes collateral damage. I am an independent semi-retired operator, and I can’t afford many “high ticket” items, but this tool is so practical that I really can’t do without it.Walter Morgan
This is the single best tool I’ve ever used. I use this on new cars as well. Seat-belt bolts are very tight. I’ll put a T-50 [screw head] on a seat bolt, and I lean on it, and I know I will break it or break my tool. I put the Mini-Ductor over it for two seconds, and then I can break it loose and take it out.Bob Welker, ASE certified master technician
I just wanted to take a moment to rave about your Mini-Ductor. Working as an automotive technician, in the northeast, this tool is essential for removing rusted fasteners. I have worked in the industry for 30 years. I wish that I had found out about your product sooner. You have a customer for life. Your staff has been incredibly helpful and they really know their stuff.Jaye Tinnell
After the second time I used the Mini-Ductor II, it paid for itself. Straightening a bent sway bar, on the vehicle, without removing it took 10 minutes. Would have been a one hour repair otherwise. The second time rivets in a ball joint on a 15 year old truck would not come out. Heated them to “cherry red” in less than a minute, and were removed effortlessly. Have been in the auto repair business for 33 years and I wish I would know about it sooner.Jim B.
Today was the first time I used my Mini-Ductor Venom. I was working on a 14 year old van doing exhaust work. The Venom got all the nuts red hot in seconds and they came off very easily. I like the Venom because I do not have to worry about damaging other components or setting things on fire as you would when working with an acetylene torch in tight places. I would give the Mini-Ductor Venom a solid 5 out of 5.Ryan Topliffe
