New Attachment Transforms RotoZip® Into First 360-degree Jigsaw



Agile, Stable, Comfortable and Easy-to-use

Mt. Prospect, Ill., April 1, 2005 - The new RotoZip® by Bosch Jigsaw Handle Attachment Kit transforms nearly any RotoZip Spiral Saw(TM), new and previously released models, into a comfortable, stable and easy to use 360-degree cutting tool. For remodeling, flooring, HVAC, deck building, plumbing and countless other projects, the jigsaw handle attachment makes RotoZip the easiest to use cutting tool on the market.

An innovative addition to the world's number one Spiral Saw system, the jigsaw handle attachment provides users with a comfortable soft-grip handhold for guiding the tool 360-degrees in any direction. Whether cutting out countertops for sinks or vent openings in flooring, the new jigsaw handle eliminates the need for users to constantly reposition their hand or the tool. In fact, unlike a standard jigsaw, the new attachment permits RotoZip users to make many of the same cuts without ever turning or breaking the wrist - complete agility, little effort and maximum comfort.

Other popular applications include cutting laminate flooring and deck boards to fit around a post. And to help tackle such a diverse range of applications, each RotoZip jigsaw handle attachment kit includes a straight-edge guide, perfect for rip cuts, and three of the popular Sabrecut(TM) Zip® Bits. A handy wrench also accompanies the kit for quick adjustments.

The RotoZip Jigsaw Handle Kit will accommodate all new and previously released RotoZip Spiral Saw models, except the RTM01. And the model SCS01 and SCS02 require an adapter available as an additional accessory. The kit's MSRP is $39.99.

Other attachments for the RotoZip system include the Grout Removal Kit, FS2 Flex Shaft, ZM3 Zip Mate®, PR2 Plunge Router Attachment, Straight Edge Guide, Dust Extractor and Circle Cutters.
