Milwaukee Releases More Hand Tools
It looks like Milwaukee is ready for round two of their new line of hand tools. We covered the initial release here and reviewed their 11-in-1 Screwdriver here.The new gaggle includes a screwdriver set, a folding jab saw (very cool), a PVC hand saw, and the one we like the best, a compact hack saw.
From the pictures we've seen, the tools all have the markings of well-made items; solid looks and nice grips. Where applicable (like on the hack saw) there are features like tool-free blade changes. As with all of Milwaukee's tools, these are all built for the tradesman and if our 11-in-1 Screwdriver is any indication (it's still glued to our hip), all of these new tools are going to be worthy purchases if you're looking for something that's going to be with you for a while.
Press release after the jump.
Milwaukee® Introduces New Compact Hack Saw
MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces the Compact Hack Saw as part of its new line of hand tools. The ideal size for cutting in tight spaces or making flush cuts, the new tool features an exclusive tool free blade change that permits users to change blades up to 10 times faster.
"Traditional Compact Hack Saws may get the job done, but are uncomfortable to hold and require additional tools to change the blade," says Tim Albrecht, Group Product Manager- Hand Tools for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "The new Milwaukee® Compact Hack Saw delivers significant innovation in this product category by offering an ergonomic handle with a rubber over mold grip and a time-saving tool free blade change."
The addition of the new Compact Hack Saw follows the April 2010 launch of Milwaukee's Hand Tool category. Dedicated to delivering advanced solutions to increase productivity, this category will continue to grow and offer innovative products. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the new tools confirm Milwaukee's commitment to best-in-class durability.
