OX Tools’ PU10 Diamond Blade Offers Best of Both Worlds

CRANFORD, NJ (July 20, 2016) – The new OX PU10 cuts the most common materials found on a construction site. It cuts quickly due to its continuous rim design that features an edge that is serrated, giving the blade faster cutting speeds while maintaining a smooth cut.

“Diamond blades are very expensive when compared to abrasive wheels. While the initial cost is enough to scare off some purchasers, what is important is the cost per cut. Abrasive wheels have a very short lifespan, and the diameter decreases with wear, reducing depth of cut and are not effective when cutting harder materials. So, users can consume up to 50 abrasive wheels to one diamond blade,” said John Diplock, managing director of OX Tools.
Additionally, the reinforced center plate offers increased safety while the vibration dampening means quieter cuts. Available from 4-14 inches, these blades can cut granite, natural stone, clay products, engineering bricks, concrete products and metal.

OX Tools Offers Attractive New Stainless Steel Tape Measure

OX-P029425CRANFORD, NJ (June 20, 2016) – Accuracy and durability are at the forefront of features that professionals look for in a tape measure and OX delivers on both and as an added bonus, rare earth magnets embedded in the tang to stick to ferrous materials.

“User research indicated that traditional housings were not constructed to withstand multiple drops that are very common on the jobsite and that over time, the markings would become hard to read due to heavy use,” states John Diplock, managing director for OX Tools USA. “We overdesigned this new tape measure to exceed user expectations.”

The 25’ Pro SS Tape Measure showcases a 1-3/16″ wide tape with double-sided with easy-to-read inch fractional markings with 1/8” increments symbolized. The nylon coated tape blade boasts a 9’ horizontal standout.

The business end of the tape has a double-sided tang that offers multiple points to grasp the material and can also sit flush with metal.

The stainless steel case protects the tape from the harsh workplace environment and the rugged over-molded cushion grip increases comfort and provides added slip resistance.

Zircon m40-FFP Handheld Electronic Metal Detector

Zircon m40-FFP Handheld Electronic Metal Detector

This is the first Zircon product that I am reviewing, but it’s not the first one I’ve used. I think the first detector that I used was about 20 years ago. It was a stud detector.

I’ve done some preliminary testing on known staples and nails, and it worked on every single one of them.
