Milwaukee 12V Micro Driver vs. Bosch 10.8V Pocker Driver

Later this month Milwaukee will release the new sub-compact 12V Lithium Ion Micro Driver (2401-22) which will compete directly with the extremely successful Bosch PS20 10.8V Lithium Ion Pocket Driver. How does the Milwaukee vs. Bosch comparison stack up? On paper the Milwaukee looks to have the advantage with 1.2V more power with equal price and charge time but we won’t know for sure until it comes out. Expect additional 12V lithium Ion tools from Milwaukee to follow hopefully in time for Christmas. The 12V Micro Driver 2401-22 should be available for sale on Ohio Power Tool within a week or two along with a new compact drill/driver V18 2601-22 which will weight only 3.5 lbs.

Metal Drilling with a Mag Drills – Hougen or Milwaukee

mag drill

There are many different models of portable magnetic drill presses available however Hougen’s line up shows some clear product advantages over the competition. In size, power, price and durability Hougen Mag Drills and their line of Rotabroach Annular Cutters are defiantly leaders in the industry.
The HMD925 may be one of the best Power Feed Drills on the market today. It weighs only 37 lbs, and is 16% lighter than competitive models. It has the capacity to drill holes to 1-1/4 diameter in power feed mode, up to 1-1/2 diameter in manual feed mode, and up to 2” deep using Rotabroach annular cutters.
Utilizing the latest developments in technology, the HMD925 incorporates smart circuitry, designed to monitor and automatically adjust the feed motor control, maintaining optimum performance throughout the cut while extending cutting tool life. The HMD925 comes complete with a coolant bottle and standard Hougen safety features. It’s also priced less then popular competitive models.
If size is a concern there is probably no better or more portable mag drill to consider than the HMD150. The big brother to the HMD115, The HMD150 is small, powerful, and a has a full 1" depth of cut. The HMD150 is a fabricator’s dream. It gets into tight spots with the low profile 7-13/16" height. Also it has the lift detection safety feature, eliminating safety switch adjustments. The HMD150 uses the Rotaloc PlusTM cutters from Hougen. They have a bayonet-style twist and lock shank for quick cutter changes. Rugged and full of power the HMD150 is great tool for construction and fabrication.
Milwaukee Tools also produces a line of portable magnetic drill presses that most closely rivals Hougen’s excellent line of products. While Milwaukee does not focus primarily on Metal Cutting as Hougen does, they do product a superior product when compared to the rest of the competition.

Milwaukee Tools Introduces ICE EDGE Reciprocating Saw Blades

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces ICE EDGE
 

ice edge bladesA new generation of reciprocating saw blades specifically designed to handle even the toughest metal
cutting applications that HVAC, automotive, plumbing or maintenance/repair tradesmen demand.

Featuring a bi-metal construction with 8% cobalt, ICE EDGE blades are flexible to prevent shock, fatigue and shattering. The completely redesigned blade optimizes metal cutting
with precision-ground teeth and a radiused back face that increases tooth strength, resulting in faster cuts and longer blade life. The positive rake on the cutting edges removes chips aggressively, and deeper gullets help keep the cut clear and cool to ensure optimal heat resistance.

Milwaukee’s cryogenic heat treat process induces a permanent change in the microstructure of the high-speed steel cutting edge, and because it penetrates to the full depth of the blades, this treatment improves the hardness, wear resistance and dimensional stability of each blade.  

Key Features/Specs
• Cryogenic heat treat process improves hardness and wear resistance
• Precision-ground teeth for optimized metal cutting
• Radiused back face for increased tool strength, faster cuts, longer blade life
• Positive rake on cutting edges removes chips
• Deeper gullets help keep the cut clear and cool
• Bi-metal construction with 8% cobalt
• 1⁄2” universal tang fits all SawzallsTM and competitive models
