Milwaukee® Introduces New Rasping Jab Saw

MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation introduces the new Rasping Jab Saw as part of its new line of hand tool products. Eliminating the need for separate rasping and reaming tools, the new saw utilizes grating holes along the side of the blade to rapidly expand holes or smooth rough edges of sheetrock after a cut has been made.

"No other jab saw on the market integrates the cutting and rasping functions needed to expand holes," says Tim Albrecht, Group Product Manager- Hand Tools for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "We are constantly looking for ways to make applications easier and increase productivity. The less time wasted switching from tool to tool, the more productive the user will be."

To combat the likelihood of the blade bending or breaking, the new Milwaukee® Rasping Jab Saw features the most durable 6" Plaster/Drywall blade available on the market. The saw also features rubber over mold to increase comfort and prevent hand slippage.

The new Rasping Jab Saw is among the first in a line of hand tools Milwaukee® will launch in April. Additional innovative tools in the saw, knife and driver categories will follow later this year. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the new tools confirm Milwaukee's commitment to best-in-class durability.
