OfficinaRC Smart Gluer Tool

OfficinaRC has released this Smart Gluer Tool for the 1:10 Onroad racer which is designed as a device that allows you to glue the shoulder of the tyre perfectly in the simplest way possible.   Small in size and made from a solid aluminium block, the Smart Gluer Tool is made completely in Italy. Its exclusive design despite its small size allows it to accommodate a comfortable retractable support in the case which can be used to support the glue nozzle and allow perfect administration on the shoulder.   The smart Gluer Tool is battery powered (not included) which allows it to be transported in the hold even for air travel.  The use is very simple, place the rubber in the hexagonal adapter in the centre of the Smart Gluer Tool and tighten the rubber using a knob screw. Once powered on the rubber will start to rotate at the right speed to be able to apply the glue.  To be even more precise you can use the “Glue Holder” which is housed in the case and which can be positioned using a screw in order to have greater precision in depositing the glue.  The Smart Gluer Tool is supplied in a semi-rigid bag made exclusively by MonacoRC which contains a shaped foam to accommodate the device.
