AJAX CHISELS AND PUNCHES SHOULD NEVER BE STRUCK AGAINST SURFACES THAT ARE HARDER THAN THE TOOLS THEMSELVES; I.E., “BEARINGS” AND “BEARING RACES” HAVE A MUCH HIGHER HARDNESS THAN THE OPTIMUM HARDNESS OF THE WORKING END OF ALL CHISELS AND PUNCHES. THERE ARE SPECIFIC AND SAFER PROCEDURES FOR THE REMOVAL OF THESE TYPES OF ITEMS. FOLLOW CERTIFIED MECHANIC’S RESOURCES FOR CORRECT APPLICATION OF TOOLS OR CALL AJAX TOOLS FOR ASSISTANCE.
Ajax Rescue Tools are ideal for Extrication scenarios involving Automobiles, Buses, and Big Rig Semi's, along with confined spaces and structural collapses.
Each Ajax Air Hammer Rescue Kit series features an air hammer specially selected for its durability. This is extremely important as they sometimes must be adjusted to a higher operating pressure to cut through heavier steel. Every kit includes an Ajax Kwik Change Retainer. This retainer was originally developed by Ajax to hold the cutting tool securely in place, yet allowing you to change tools in a matter of seconds during emergency procedures. In addition, the retainer also allows the use of Ajax Exclusive non-turn tools. These tools can be indexed into different positions to allow one-hand operation of the hammer when necessary. The Ajax Kwik Change Retainer is the only retainer which lets you use both turn and non-turn type tools. Our high-pressure regulator has a universal design which lets you use either 2216 psi or 4500 psi air tanks without having to change the regulator. It is rated at an operating pressure up to 300 psi, well above our recommended settings. A safety blow-off valve prevents you from exceeding capacity level. The regulator lets you operate the tool at the proper air pressures essential for the most efficient operation while allowing you to use extra air power when needed. Normal body metals, A, B and C posts, quarter panels and firewalls require only 90 psi. Heavier metals, such as Nader pins, door hinges, etc., require 150-160 psi.
