And Even More COOL STUFF ...
Bosch BLUECORE Batteries
Bosch (877-267-2499 or boschtools.com) has added cooling rods to an upgraded battery line that pull heat away from the cells during charging. This offers a 50 percent increase in battery cycles. The new batteries are available in 9.6-, 12-, 14.4-, 18- and 24-volt platforms. The BLUECORE technology should be available on all Bosch tools by early 2006.
Kreg Pocket Jig Upgrade
Kreg (800-447-8638 or kregtool.com), has taken an already good product and improved it. The company's new K3 system now offers front-side clamping (no fumbling to lock pieces in place), an adjustable drilling system with milled-steel sleeves to allow unlimited material thickness and extend the life of the jig, a stop to make duplicate pieces easily without measuring each time, and dust collection to keep the jig clear of debris. The system is available now with both a mountable and portable guide block for $150 or with the mountable-only guide block for $80.
DeWalt's Revamped Miter Saws
DeWalt (800-433-9258 or dewalt.com) has reworked its line of12" compound and sliding compound miters saws, improving accuracy and capacity. A redesigned and machined base fence support system keeps the fence square to the table and offers a 16" crosscut capability. Hard-wired lasers add accuracy without the need for batteries and can be operated without the blade spinning. The saws have just become available and range from $329 to $659. PW — DT
