What better time to talk about the Milwaukee M12 Heated Jacket (2330L) than the middle of summer. As I sit writing this on my patio it is a balmy 86 degrees F outside. The point is I like being warm and do not like the cold, I have been wanting a M12 Jacket since the day they came out. Finally at the end of spring Eric gets me one from ACME Tools (www.acmetools.com) to shut me up. At the rate these jackets sell, now might be a good time to grab one while they are in stock.
When the Jacket arrived eyes gleaming I tore open the box like Tom Hanks in Castaway when he opened the Fed-Ex boxes. Finally I got one, I see it in my hands, I feel it, I smell it, OMG I love this jacket. I try it on and it fits like a glove, I pop a Red Lithium in the back pocket, hold the button down and it lights up flashing red. Everywhere I go with this jacket on and in heat mode people come up to me and say what is that? When I say heated jacket they are amazed and want one, I feel like a rockstar! Read more
New Bosch Wallscanner D-tect™150 Scores Industry First with the Use of Patented Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) Radar Technology UWB Radar Technology pinpoints material type, depth and relative width of objects with superior accuracy
Bosch Measuring Tools, the world-wide leader in measuring technology, introduces the use of Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) Radar Technology with the new Bosch D-tect 150 Wall/Floor scanner. With the use of UWB Radar Technology, Bosch has created the first detector that exceeds all other conventional sensor scanners by bringing superior detection depth and accuracy to the job-site.
The Bosch D-tect 150 is the only scanner in the marketplace that can display material type, depth & relative width information of ferrous and non-ferrous metal, non-metal objects (i.e. wooden studs and plastic pipes) and live AC wires in concrete, wet concrete, deep concrete, in-floor heating, drywall, metal and signal view. It can even measure up to a depth of 6” in cured concrete.
The Bi-Metal Self-Feed Bit has a high-speed steel cutting edge and screw tip that make it able to stay sharper longer. The chamfered edges and flutes help remove excess wood chips while drilling and make it easy to remove the bit from the hole after drilling. LENOX Bi-Metal technology helps the bit last two times longer than previous models, offering best-in-class performance. Read more

The new Hilti TE-CX Bit features a gradient carbide head that stops at nothing—not even the hardest rebar. Incorporating four rugged cutting edges, the carbide head’s special design helps prevent catching or jamming on rebar to extend the life of the bit. The TE-CX bits have been designed for drilling holes for medium to heavy-duty anchors in the 3/16” to 1” range in concrete, masonry and other natural materials.
The new anchor hole suitability indicator means that accurate anchor holes can be drilled when the indicator mark is visible. And, in the unlikely event of breakage, the drill bit will be replaced if the wear mark on the helix is still visible.
However, if you don’t expect to hit rebar, the new Hilti TE-C line offers unparalleled drilling speed. With a contoured head and carbide blade, the TE-C drill bits are designed to slice through concrete and move dust from the hole to the surface as quickly as possible. Read more
