HTP America announces the new MIG 130, an affordable MIG welding package for the do-it-yourselfer. The 130 operates on 110 volts, so you can plug it in anywhere, and with 130 amps of power you can weld anything from thin sheetmetal up to 3/16-inch steel. The machine features four heat settings, an infinite wire feed adjustment, 7-foot welding gun, 5-foot ground cable, and 61/2-foot input power cord. The versatile welder uses both 8-inch and 4-inch diameter spools of wire and comes ready to weld with extra tips and a roll of 0.035-inch flux cored, gasless wire. Just add a regulator, a tank of 75 percent argon/25 percent CO2 shielding gas, and some hard wire and you can MIG weld with gas.
The Truck Bed U-Lock from Master Lock is designed to deter "grab and go" theft of valuable items as well as constant shifting of objects being hauled. The U-Lock is a semi-permanent, easily installed device whose locking body swivels 190 degrees for convenient use and fits easily into most pickup truck bed stake hole pockets without any drilling. The U-Lock is constructed of a hardened steel shackle and lock body, has a keyhole cover to protect it from the elements, and uses Master Lock's unique Python-style cylinder, which allows the cylinder to be changed to make keyed-alike sets for use with multiple Truck Bed U-Locks. Because it's a Master Lock, users can trust it to protect their valuables.

Cut It Out
The original Doug's Headers has announced a new and improved version of their popular all stainless steel construction electric exhaust cutouts in 21/2-inch and 3-inch diameters. The engineers at Doug's have taken their famous electric exhaust cutouts and dramatically decreased the size for more versatile installations while lowering the price as well. These cutouts feature a rugged gear reduction 12-volt DC motor and a rotating gate for a leakproof seal every time the cutout is opened and closed. Unlike butterfly-style cutouts, the Doug's cutouts don't have the leaky gasket sound and when fully opened there is no exhaust flow obstructions. A pre-wired harness with an illuminated rocker switch is supplied for easy installation. Uncork your exhaust with the flip of a switch from your dash. The cutouts are ideal for racetracks that don't require mufflers and are available in singles or pairs and in complete kits with Y-pipes for easy installation.
Turn, Turn, Turn
How many times have you been motoring along and suddenly realize your turn signal has been flashing for the past 10 miles? If you have manually operated, non-cancelling turn signals, they can now cancel themselves, thanks to Ron Francis Wiring. The device works with conventional bulbs or LEDs, and you can even set the length of time you'd like them to flash before they shut off. And if you activate your signal and then decide against making the turn, there's a quick-cancelling feature just for that purpose. All that is needed to activate your turn signals is a momentary switch of your choice, and Ron Francis has those, too. The Self-Cancelling Turn Signal Kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions, and all the wires are clearly imprinted with their routing information.
