As revealed in Woodworker’s Journal field editor Chris Marshall’s interview with Craig Taylor of Rockwell Tools at the International Builder’s Show, Rockwell has come out with a new line of portable power tools – and a new guarantee of free batteries for the tool’s lifetime in the hands of the original purchaser.
With your initial purchase of a drill or driver from their 14- or 18-volt Ni-Cad or Lithium-ion powered lines, you’ll get a battery – and you’ll register your tool with Rockwell Tools. Then, when that battery wears out. – whenever that may be – you contact them via the instructions you received when you registered, and get a replacement battery for your tool for the cost of shipping and handling (currently, approximately $6).
Rockwell’s new handheld power tools also include a recip saw and a random orbit sander, as well as a Jawhorse™ portable workstation that weighs 43 pounds itself and can hold items up to 600 pounds in weight and 37-inches.
You can find out more about the tools and the battery program through the Woodworker’s Journal video and at www.rockwelltools.com.
