Skil Launches Feature-Rich Multi-Finish Sander with Eight Attachments

Mount Prospect, Ill., March 6, 2006 - Skil expands innovation into its newly released multi-finishing sander. The new Skil 7300 Octo is a feature rich, multi-finishing sander that adapts to virtually any application. Do-it-yourselfers will appreciate the convenience of sanding with one tool for every project.

With its eight versatile attachments, the Skil Octo is a must have when sanding in hard-to-reach, unique places. The attachments are comprised of a slot, finger, convex, flexible, outside corner, inside corner, delta extension, and a 3-position delta pad. They are designed to finish surfaces with varying contours. The 3-position Delta pad maximizes the use of abrasives when sanding in corners. And, switching the attachments is a snap with the tool-less changing feature.

"Do-it-yourselfers will appreciate the Skil Octo's various attachments and ease of use with this versatile new multi-finishing sander," said Philip Branker, product manager at Skil Power Tools. "Our tool addresses more needs of the user than previous multi-finishing sanders already on the market. We believe this innovative tool, at its reasonable price, will complement any DIYers tool box."

The Skil Octo is equipped with a dust canister that helps maintain a clean work area, and its dust sealed switch helps ensure extended tool life. The soft grip handle helps ensure comfort and ease of control. And, the user-friendly built-in work light feature increases visibility for dim environments.

The new Skil Octo comes with all eight attachments, a 32 piece set of sanding abrasives and a canvas carrying bag. The manufacturer's suggested price is $39.99. It will be available in April 2006 at home improvement centers nationwide.
