Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) December 17, 2015 -- WORX® new products for the home and workshop use, make great holiday gifts. For do-it-yourselfers, the new WORX Clamping Sawhorses is an instant workstation, WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder is a handy driver and for all-around household use, WORX ZipSnip™ are powered scissors.
The new WORX Clamping Sawhorses are constructed with channels to support and secure two 18 in. bar clamps (included). The squeeze-clamps hold materials horizontally or vertically to help ensure safe cutting, drilling or sanding operations. When not in use, the bar clamps can be placed in a storage slot on the sawhorse’s frame.
Not limited to wood, the bar clamps can secure copper or PVC pipe, 2x materials, 4x4s, sheet goods and other materials for cutting.
The WORX Clamping Sawhorses support loads up to 1,000 lbs. The clamps can be used with or without the sawhorses. The lightweight and portable 15.6 lb. sawhorses are constructed of high-impact polypropylene. The sawhorses feature a built-in exterior cord wrap for storage. When fully opened, they stand at a comfortable working height of 32 in. with a 27 in. width. When closed, the sawhorses measure 32.6 in.H x 27 in.W x 2.5 in.D for compact storage.
Unique to the WORX Clamping Sawhorses are two notched areas at the top of each sawhorse designed to hold 2x4s. These slots can be used when cutting or clamping 2x4s as supports for cutting 4x8 sheet goods, such as plywood. The 2x4s elevate the work material during ripping operations so the sawhorses don’t come in contact with the blade.
The WORX Clamping Sawhorses (WX065, $59.99) are available at Lowes and through worx.com. They are covered by the WORX 3-year warranty.
The popular WORX® SD SemiAutomatic Driver has a new feature that sets it apart from other drive tools. It’s a Screw Holder attachment that consistently sets and levels screws for drilling. There’s no fumbling with screws to hold them steady because, once a screw is loaded into the Screw Holder, it is secured until it’s driven flush to the surface. The Screw Holder also is handy when backing out screws because the screw is secured in the Screw Holder’s jaws.
What separates the SD from other drivers is its six slot revolving chamber that rotates screw-driving bits in and out as selected. Shift from slotted to Phillips or square recess without ever touching the bit.
Inside the tool’s body is a rotating circular cartridge that holds six, 1-in., hex-shanked bits. Slide back the magazine (cover) to advance a bit into the chamber, and slide the cover forward and it’s ready to drive screws. Each bit is loaded into the cartridge, so storage or lost bits are not an issue.
The WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder is powered by a 4V Lithium-ion, built-in battery. The plug-in charger brings the driver to a full charge in 5 hours.
The kit includes the SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder attachment, one bit cartridge, six screwdriving bits: Phillips #1, #2; Slotted #4, #6, and square recess #1, #2, screw holder and 5-hour charger. The WORX SD SemiAutomatic Driver with Screw Holder (WX255L, $39.99) is available at http://www.worx.com and Amazon and Lowes.
The WORX ZipSnip is powered version of conventional scissors. This lightweight, compact cutter has a 1-1/2 in. diameter blade that’s powered by a built-in 4V lithium-ion battery. ZipSnip cuts through leather, cloth, metal screen, cardboard and the tough clear plastic that’s used in packaging products.
The handy cutting tool features a soft-grip handle and lock-off switch for safety. ZipSnip has a variable-speed motor that spins the self-sharpening blade up to 260 rpm. The tool includes a spindle lock for fast blade changes. The cutter’s plug-in charger brings it to a full charge in 3-5 hours.
WORX ZipSnip (WX081L, $34.99) is covered by the WORX three year warranty. It’s available at Menards and online at Home Depot, and Amazon.
