ABS Products got it's start in Lynwood, California in 1960.

Gary Thompson, the president of ABS Products, was working for Automotive Balancing Service balancing as many as 200 rotating assemblies a month. Most were racing applications, some were stock, some industrial applications. Gary never shied away from a challenge which is why he is one of the most respected "innovators" in the industry.

Gary was and is always thinking about ways to make his balancing jobs, and now yours, easier and faster which is where all of his ideas for the fixtures and tools for balancing came from.

Gary was one of the first to use heavy metal to balance crankshafts which was considerably easier and much safer than lead. Customers, crankshaft manufacturers, and competitors would come in and see the tools and heavy metal or, when they got the rotating assembly back, they would want to know how he did it. When he told them they would realize their value of this tooling and want to buy them.

ABS Products was open for business and eventually took all of Gary's time to keep up with the orders instead of balancing. The ABS in our name originally stood for Automotive Balancing Supplies but with Gary's imagination and knowledge we have expanded beyond the heavy metal and balancing fixtures into Polishing Lathes (for crankshafts, camshafts, racks, etc.) Pollution Control Work Stations (for any application that creates dust and debris to keep to keep it out of the operators face and lungs), the best motorized Ring Grinder on the market today, Abraisve Blasting Cabinets for any and all applications (cleaning, stress relieving, disguising) using all types of medias (baking soda, steel shot, glass beads, plastic to name a few). And simple but time-saving Specialty Tools for all aspects of manufacturing, job shops, and machine shops.

For those of you who have met us at trade shows, you know that ABS Products almost always has something new for you to see and work with.

Special Note: These videos give you the technical overview of our Soda Blaster Blast Cabinets and alllow you to see them in action: the 36" Basic Soda Blaster, 36" Large Top Soda Blaster or the 60" Production Soda Blaster.
