Technology Advances Create New Tool Lines
Premium-grade synthetic diamonds bonded directly to a steel core body through a vacuum brazing treatment create the cutting edge of Milwaukee’s new Steelhead Diamond Cut-Off Blades. Milwaukee claims the blades offer 75 times more life compared with bonded cut-off blades.
The blades are sold in 4-, 4½-, 5-, 6-, 7-, and 12-inch diameters at prices ranging from $29.99 to $139.98.
new line of Victor regulators
Available for acetylene, oxygen, LP, and inert gas, Victor’s G Series regulators’ high-strength alloy bonnets provide three times the yield strength of previous designs. The ergonomic shape of the knobs makes it easier to set pressure, especially with a gloved hand, while color-coding aids with gas identification.

The brushless motor and 20-volt battery of Power Cable’s Edge drills offer 20% more power than previous models by turning out 1,400 inch-pounds of maximum torque. Features include a two-speed gear transmission providing infinitely adjustable speeds up to 1,800 rpm.
The model PCCK607LB retails for $139 with two batteries.
