There is a company called Novus. Their local franchise fixed a ding in my
windshield. Insurance paid 100%. They drill a little hole and fill it with
UV curing glue. A year later the ding has not run. They also have a scratch
polishing machine.

http://www.crlaurence.com   It is a nationwide company with more than a dozen
warehouses and a serious catalog (that costs $35, with a $50 refund on your
first order over $500).  They are a major supplier to auto and other glass
industry people.
  They list a UV12 for $119.95 that seems to be a low level vacuum sucking UV
epoxy repair kit and an ARK1000 at $1446.00 that is a major serious complete
windshield repair setup.  From what I read in the catalog, it seems you pick
away at the crack a bit to get odd stuff out,  seal the crack area with things
like suction cups and turn on a vacuum to pull the epoxy in, which is used in
tiny amounts - a few ounces is listed as being enough for 100 treatments.  They
have a video for sale on using the equipment.
