Metal Polishing 101
There’s no finish like a mirror finish. But what’s the best way to take those old valve covers from scuffed up to super shiny? If you want to get into polishing metal, you need a little know-how and the right tools and supplies. At KMS Tools and Equipment, we’ve got both.
Evaporative Coolers: Beat the Summer Heat
Stay cool this summer with an evaporative cooler. Also known as swamp coolers, evaporative coolers pull hot air through water-saturated cooling pads. This increases the air’s humidity. As the added moisture quickly evaporates, the air loses heat. The fan blows a cool breeze of fresh air into your workspace.
The same principle is at work when you step out of a pool on a hot, windy day. The warm wind passes over your skin and you feel cold.
Thanks to the principle of evaporative cooling, you can enjoy efficient cool air in your shop, garage, or even outside. In addition, evaporative coolers are cheaper and consume less energy than air conditioners.
KMS Tools has evaporative coolers for spaces from 950 to 3,000 square feet. Shop now or keep reading to learn more about these units.
