We want to make it easier and more affordable for multi-tool users to tackle projects and not have to second-guess the idea of using another tool.
Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
The Rockwell Universal Fit™ system of oscillating multi-tools and accessories simplifies the consumer’s purchasing experience in two ways. Rockwell’s new line of multi-tools enables all other manufacturers’ accessories to fit tightly and securely without adapters. And the new accessories for Rockwell oscillating tools work on any other brand of multi-tools, as well.
This isn’t the case with other multi-tool brands, which only accept their own blades and other accessories. Users are limited to a single, proprietary system of accessories, designed to fit only one brand of tools. Some manufacturers offer adapters to help make their tools compatible, but adapters aren’t always included and they can be difficult to manage.
Rockwell engineers also have improved the quality of accessories such as the Precision End Cut Blade (RW8935), which offers faster cutting and nearly 2.5 times longer life than the previous model. Rockwell still has dropped the retail price on all oscillating tool accessories.
“We want to make it easier and more affordable for multi-tool users to tackle projects and not have to second-guess the idea of using another tool,” said Pete Denley, Rockwell product manager. “Universal Fit accomplishes that goal. Oscillating multi-tools are so versatile; they can accomplish any number of tasks. We want to provide a strong incentive for homeowners, hobbyists and pros to use them to their full advantage.”
Also, the new Universal Fit accessories are compatible with prior model Sonicrafters by using a magnetic upgrade ring, which is included in all accessory packages. The upgrade ring also enables prior model Sonicrafters to accept other brands of accessories, including Bosch®, Milwaukee®, Skil®, Makita®, Ridgid®, Channellock® and Performax.®
Rockwell’s lineup of new oscillating tools that feature the Universal Fit System include the Sonicrafter X2 (RK5140K, $149), Sonicrafter (RK5139K, $119), Sonicrafter 12V Cordless (RK2522K2, $139) and ShopSeries Sonictool (SS5120, $49).
The new Rockwell line of Sonicrafter multi-tools and Universal Fit accessories are available at Menards, Lowe’s, http://www.rockwelltools.com and other websites, as well as regional hardware and home centers nationwide.
