Contact: Mike Glodowski Founder Phone: (208) 409-6820 Fax: (208) 884-4004 [email protected] For Immediate Release January , 2009 Strong Arm 5TM Portable Hand Held Drill Press GloTech Inc. announces the release of the Strong Arm 5TM - a powerful portable hand held drill press. With its dramatic 5 to 1 leverage advantage, this innovative new product provides improved drilling ability in a durable, lightweight tool. When it comes to performance, convenience, and affordability, there is no comparison with the Strong Arm 5TM. Until now, drilling operators have had to rely on pure muscle in order to push the drill or have relied on large and cumbersome drill presses such as magnetic drill presses which are heavy and have very limited usages. The Strong Arm 5TM changes all this. Designed for use with any hand-held drill, the Strong Arm 5TM is easy to use and requires virtually no setup time. Pulling the handle of the Strong Arm 5TM draws the drill toward the drilling surface with a 5 to 1 leverage advantage. In other words, for every pound of pull on the handle, there are 5 pounds at the drill bit. This means faster drilling with less effort, less operator fatigue, and less chance for injury. Its power, portability, and convenience make the Strong Arm 5TM your drilling solution for many drilling situations especially overhead drilling. The standard foot attachment grabs the back of the material being drilled and the leverage of the Strong Arm 5TM pulls the drill toward the drilling surface. In the reversed position, the leverage of the tool pushes off a surface opposite to the drilling surface and pushes the drill into the drilling surface. With the use of the adjustable extension foot attachment, the drilling surface can be up to 8 feet away. " The Strong Arm 5TM is advanced engineered and made in the USA and designed for durability, mobility, convenience, and safety. Quality aluminum construction makes the Strong Arm 5TM sturdy and lightweight - just 3.5 pounds. To see this amazing new drill press in action, visit the Strong Arm 5TM website www.strongarm5.com.

Glo Tech, Inc. introduces unique portable hand-held drill press; changes the face of drilling

Most drill operators – from shop owners to foremen to installers to engineers – know the importance of an efficient drill. However, beyond the efficiency of the drill itself, its user must be efficient and precise as well. Drilling operators have had to rely on pure muscle in order to push the drill or on large and cumbersome drill presses such as magnetic drill presses, which are heavy and have very limited usages. Glo Tech, Inc. has introduced a new, unique hand-held drill press called the Strong Arm 5 that provides operators with leverage that doesn’t exist with current drills.

Designed for use with any hand-held drill, the Strong Arm 5 is the most versatile drill press. Pulling the handle of the Strong Arm 5TM draws the drill toward the drilling surface with a 5 to 1 leverage advantage; for every pound of pull on the handle, there are five pounds at the drill bit. According to Mike Glodowski, founder of Glo Tech, Inc. and inventor of the Strong Arm 5, this means faster drilling with less effort, less operator fatigue, and less chance for injury.

“Its power, portability, and convenience make the Strong Arm 5 your drilling solution for many drilling situations especially overhead drilling,” Glodowski said.

Glodowski explains that the standard foot attachment grabs the back of the material being drilled and the leverage of the Strong Arm 5TM pulls the drill toward the drilling surface. In the reversed position, the leverage of the tool pushes off a surface opposite to the drilling surface and pushes the drill into the drilling surface. With the use of the adjustable extension foot attachment, the drilling surface can be up to 8 feet away. It can be used off of scaffolding and lifts. This is efficient for commercial glass installers needing to drill 20 to 30 feet high. This set up is also ideal for applications such as drilling up into commercial steel door enclosures, drilling up into concrete, and drilling up into red iron.

“As an auto body repair tech, drilling out spot welds with traditional hand-held drill was exhausting and often left room for mistake. I searched the market for something that allowed not only precision but increased my safety and speed,” Glodowski said. “Competing versions use plastic parts and often carry a hefty price tag. I wanted to provide consumers with a product that was durable, versatile and certainly affordable for small businesses.”
