New Saws and Drill Bits
Klein Tools has expanded its holemaking product line. The new products include Bi-Metal Hole Saws, Double-Fluted Step Drill Bits and Wood Boring Bits. “While out on job sites, we noticed the difficulties tradespeople were having cutting holes quickly and consistently in steel as well as other materials,” said Dave Mueller, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “With those observations in mind, we re-designed our holemaking products to deliver a faster, more reliable and accurate cutting performance making the job easier and more productive.”
Cable Handling System

Featuring a patent pending Torque Lock adjustment system, the new Milwaukee Locking Pliers and Locking C-Clamps deliver an innovative solution for adjusting the size of the gripping jaws while secured to material. This gives the user the ability to produce maximum locking force with a much faster and controlled set up.
“As we spent time on the jobsite investigating this category, we found that many users were modifying their locking tools by welding a loop on the back end of the thumb screw. This created a way to set up their tool faster and produce the necessary holding force with a screwdriver,” says Ryan Schwoegler, product manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Inspired by this inventive user modification, our Torque Lock Locking Tools feature a thumb screw with a more convenient geometry for hand force and a unique screwdriver through-hole design to produce maximum locking force.” Milwaukee Tool
Remote Racking for Power Circuit Breakers
The CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 HK allows technicians to remotely rack in or out of the HK-style medium-voltage power circuit breaker from a safe distance while remaining stationed outside of the arc-flash boundary. Installation and operation of the CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 HK is quick, simple, and does not require any modifications to existing equipment. HK-style circuit breakers may typically be found in generation, chiller/HVAC, petrochemical, water/waste treatment and pulp/paper applications. By automating the racking procedure, the CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 HK reduces operator fatigue and increases operator safety.
