This year, Valentine’s Day gift-givers should consider surprising their favorite handypersons with a new WORX tool innovation, such as the WORX BladeRunner X2, WORX 20V MaxLithium Switchdriver, WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder or WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw. Most do-it-yourselfers would gladly swap a traditional Valentine’s Day remembrance for a tool gift that continues to be appreciated long after the roses have faded and the box of bonbons is empty.

This break with romantic gifting tradition rings true for both women and men tool lovers. In fact, Census Bureau data show there are more than 18 million women homeowners in the U.S. According to the National Association of Realtors, they account for 23 percent of all first-time buyers and 16 percent of repeat buyers. Many of these women homeowners are do-it-yourself enthusiasts.

The new WORX BladeRunner X2 makes an ideal gift for DIY valentines who have a creative streak. The portable benchtop saw uses assorted, T-shank, jigsaw blades to cut wood, PVC, plastic, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, as well as ceramic tile. It weighs less than 15 lbs. and can easily be carried to the project’s location.

BladeRunner X2 is ideal for building a bird feeder, trellis, potting table, garage shelving, garden bench or Adirondack chair. It scrolls decorative rails, panels and corner braces for gazebos, pergolas or privacy fences. Quickly cut PVC to design a towel rack or bike stand. Create metal lawn ornaments or ceramic-tile tabletops, trivets and coasters.

Changing blades is simple. Just press down and slide the blade release lever on the left side of the saw to seat or release the blade. Once the blade is in position, guide rollers ensure accurate 90 degree cutting at all times.

WORX BladeRunner X2 (WX572L, $99.99) is available at worx.com and online retailers including Walmart and Amazon.

WORX 20V MaxLithium Switchdriver is a new twist on Valentine’s Day giving. This one-of-a-kind, cordless drill/driver has a rotating head equipped with two ¼-inch chucks to load various combinations of bits.

The homeowner can drill a pilot hole, and then rotate the head to switch chucks and sink the screw with a driver bit. Switchdriver is handy for installing blinds or shelves with drywall anchors and completing assembly projects with different bit types and sizes.

Switchdriver weighs only 3 lbs. (with battery) and has an 11-position clutch with electronic torque control to prevent stripping of screws. The cordless drill/driver features a comfortable overmold grip, hand guard and LED work light. It includes two 20V, 1.5 Ah batteries, a five-hour charger, two drill bits (1/8 in., 3/32 in.) and one #2 Phillips bit. The tool is covered by the WORX 3-year warranty.

WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder is sure to become your true love’s tool of choice for a variety of everyday home projects. This user-friendly, cordless driver is equipped with a screw holder attachment that consistently sets and levels screws for driving. Screws also are held securely in the holder’s jaws when backing them out.

WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver has a six-slot revolving cylinder that rotates bits in and out of position for driving. The user simply slides back the cover to load a bit, and then slides the cover forward for driving screws. Since bits are stored in the cylinder, lost or misplaced bits are never a problem.

The cordless driver weighs one pound and is powered by a 4-volt lithium-ion battery with built-in charge port. The tool is constructed of nylon composite and has a comfortable rubber grip on the handle. It features a ¼-inch chuck, two-finger trigger, LED work light and forward/reverse rotation button.

WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw is a great gift choice for any handy homeowner.     The compact circular saw features a 4-1/2 in. blade that cuts a 2x4 in a single pass, but is up to 50 percent lighter than a full-size 7-1/4 in. circular saw.

The compact saw weighs only 4.4 lbs. so it is easy to transport and maneuver. Its slim, inline grip design provides comfort, balance, and control. It’s a great homeowner’s saw capable of handling dozens of building, remodeling and woodworking projects.

WORKSAW’s metal retractable lower blade guard is the same as those found on traditional circular saws. There’s a depth-of-cut adjustment lever for quick and accurate blade height setups. The saw’s bevel cutting capacity is 0-45°. A push-button arbor lock allows fast blade changes.

The WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw accessories include a 4-1/2 in., 24-tooth, carbide-tipped blade, vac adapter for sawdust extraction, parallel edge guide, and Allen wrench for blade changes. The WORXSAW Compact Circular Saw (WX429L, $59.99) is available at http://www.worx.com and online retailers including Walmart, Home Depot, Amazon and Menards.
