Heat Induction Tool for Seized Parts
Blue-gloved hand  holding gray & blue pistol-looking heat induction tool that has 2 heavy wires coming out of the pistol muzzle with a coil on the far end holding against a seized nut & bolt

Workers with upper extremity impairments or who cannot safely operate a torch can use heat induction to remove seized fasteners. This battery-powered Heat Induction Tool for Seized Parts emits electromagnetic energy to release ferrous metals from rust, corrosion, thread-lock compounds, fertilizer, dirt, etc. Because there's no open flame, one can reportedly heat metallic objects near plastic components or combustible materials without having to remove or otherwise protect them. The tool comes with three coils (7/8" pre-formed, 23" U-form, and 41" bearing buddy), LED light, usage indicator, fault-override delay, ergonomic grip, carrying case, and operator manual.
