Tracing Bit Takes Measuring Out of Cutting
The RotoZip Spiral Saw line from the Robert Bosch Tool Company continues to expand with the recent addition of a metal cutting bit and now a tracing bit that makes cut-outs fast and easy without ever picking up a tape measure.
Robert Bosch Tool Company is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Supplier 100 of NAHB.
RotoZip says its XB-MPGP2 Tracing XBIT is the industry’s first full-fledged multi-purpose tracer, and it can be used for applications in a variety of materials, ranging from wood to fiberglass.
The tracing bit tip makes perfect cuts every time by avoiding the object behind the surface and only cutting out the material desired, the manufacturer says. From electrical boxes to window frames and more, this new bit eliminates the need for measurement. The 5/32-inch diameter bit is compatible with both RotoZip and competitive Spiral Saws.
To use the bit, users simply plunge directly into the work piece; pilot holes are unnecessary. Next, they drive the bit in one direction until it hits the edge of the object they are cutting out. Finally, utilizing the object as a template, users follow the edge around to complete the cut. By simply following the template, users end up with a perfect cut.
The product is available in a two-bit execution at home centers, hardware stores and wherever professional power tools are found. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $11.99.
RotoZip manufactures a broad range of XBITS compatible with both the RotoZip series of Spiral Saws and competitive tools.
Additional XBITS include:
- Drywall (XB-DW2)
- Multi-purpose (XB-MP2)
- Tilecut (XB-TC1)
- Underlayment (XB-UL1)
- Laminate flooring (XB-LF1)
