Bluetooth Cordless Speakers Coming to Milwaukee M12 Line

2592-20_B-2

The next innovation in the Milwaukee 12 volt cordless tool lineup is a Bluetooth ready wireless jobsite speaker. Powered by the Milwaukee M12 batteries, these speakers feature Bluetooth capability up to 30 ft., a 3.5 mm audio jack, and a rugged construction with a metal speaker grate for durability. Also included is a USB port capable of charging your smartphone. The Milwaukee 2592-20 M12 Wireless Speaker is debuting at under $70 from a lot of retailers, including Ohio Power Tool. This particular speaker will not be available until early January, so it is probably not a good Christmas gift, but you can always get one on pre-order for someone that already has a lot of M12 tools.

Freud Diablo Thick Metal Carbide Tooth Recip Blades

Diablo Thick Metal Carbide

At the recent STAFDA trade show we got to see several of the new blade in person and had the opportunity to make a couple cuts with each. While we would not consider this a full blow product test it does give you a fair idea of what to expect. These new Freud Diablo recip blade are designed specifically to cut thick metals such as high-strength alloys, cast iron, and/or stainless steel from 3/16” to ½” thick. We’ve used many bi-metal, carbide and diamond grit blades in the past to varying success but until now there really has not been anything that we would really consider a good replacement to traditional pipe cutting tools. We still are not convinced in a production situation plumbers are going to replace their larger electric or hydraulic pipe cutting tools with these blades but for small jobs or the occasional cut in various materials an $11 blade is a pretty inexpensive solution or at the very minimum a cheap insurance policy.
