BETTER PLYWOOD

Our ATS-W Wood Tamp Shoes are now made with a higher -grade plywood with multiple layers and no veneer layer.  We examine each sheet of plywood to assure that there are no cracks, holes or fillers on the "A" side.  After cutting, shaping and sanding the plywood blanks we place the smooth "A" side down during final assembly.  This provides for a smooth defect-free surface contacting the asphalt mat. Additionally, this new plywood has superior screw holding properties. Other wood tamp shoes on the market use cheap "C" grade, sub-flooring plywood which is full of holes, cracks and other defects.

NEW IMPROVEMENTS TO OUR ASPHALT PAVING TAMP SHOES

TEL-TUK is now using a thicker, more dense and longer lasting felt for our ATS-F Felt Paving Shoes.  You'll notice the felt is white, making it visibly easier when applying the first coating of diesel fuel.  Also, we are now using tempered aluminum sole plates...stiffer and much lighter than steel sole plates still used by other manufacturers.
