JIGSAW ATTACHMENT ALLOWS CUTTING WITHOUT TURNING
A NEW attachment for a Bosch jigsaw turns the versatile saw into a 360° cutting tool. The new RotoZip jigsaw handle attachment gives the user a soft-grip handhold that allows him to guide the tool in any direction without turning his wrist. A popular use for the jigsaw handle is in cutting boards to fit around a post.
The RotoZip jigsaw handle kit accommodates all RotoZip spiral saw models. Price of the kit is $39.99. Call Bosch Power Tools at 877/267-2499, visit www.boschtools.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin, or circle 199.

CORDLESS BATTERY DELIVERS DOUBLE RUN TIME
MILWAUKEE Electric Tool offers a line of tools all powered by a new lithium ion battery called the V28. Lithium ion is widely used in cell phones and digital cameras but not in cordless power tools. Milwaukee Electric says because the new V28 battery offers increased power, it will introduce more cordless models, powered with the V28, of traditionally corded tools.
The V28 with 28v is lighter than the traditional 18v battery and provides more power and twice the run time. A built-in fuel gauge tells users how much run time is available. The new battery works on a V28 line of tools, including a hammer drill, circular saw, Sawzall reciprocating saw, impact wrench, work light and battery charger.
The V28 circular saw or the V28 hammer drill will cost about $450. A four-tool set with the V28 battery retails for about $759. Contact Milwaukee Electric Tool, Dept. FIN, 13135 W.
