New LENOX® Mobile Torch System II Answers the Needs of Users

Improved LENOX Hand Torch Kit Updated for Convenience

EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. February 19, 2010 - LENOX, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, today introduces the new LENOX Mobile Torch System II (MTS II) designed to meet the needs of professional users. The new design simplifies on-the-job needs for accessibility, increased storage, protection and convenience.

The increased storage space now accommodates either the new Fat Boy(TM) 16.92 oz. gas cylinders or the old 14.1 oz. gas cylinders. The storage space can securely hold two of either size or one of each. This easy-to-carry, heavy duty molded case provides added space to store solder, accessories and tools - eliminating the need to carry a second bag on the job. The integrated hose wrap keeps the hose securely in place for transport. The tip holder protects and cools tips after use, allowing the user to quickly pack up and move on to their next job. The added convenience of the 12.5 foot hose on the MTS II extends the reach and accessibility in any job situation - crawl spaces, attics, under cabinets, on ladders and more.

LENOX Hand Torch Kit

The new LENOX Hand Torch Kit can now accommodate two LENOX Fat Boy gas cylinders, two old cylinders or one of each. The expanded accessory storage area has enough space to accommodate tubing cutters, solder, flux, brushes and torch parts - eliminating the need to carry around a separate tool kit. The folding handle reduces the overall size for easy storage in a truck or storage box.

"Jobsite conditions constantly vary from location to location," stated Lee Wilkins, director of marketing, LENOX. "The new designs of both the LENOX MTS II and Hand Torch Kits are the result of listening to the needs of our users and coming up with the most versatile solution to many of the different conditions that tradespeople face each day. Each of the many features were added for increased ease of use, durability and convenience, which in turn will result in higher productivity and profitability for plumbers and other professionals who use the system."

The new LENOX MTS II and Hand Torch Kit can be purchased at plumbing supply houses and national dealers and distributors throughout North America.
