Mt. Prospect, Ill. (April 25, 2006) - RotoZip continued the expansion of its heavy duty and long-lasting XBITS(tm) line with the addition of the XB-MPGP2 Tracing XBIT, the industry's first full-fledged multi-purpose tracer. For applications in a variety of materials ranging from wood to fiberglass, the newest XBIT offers a fast and easy solution for all types of cut-outs. The Patented RotoZip Tracing Bit tip makes perfect cuts every time by avoiding the object behind the surface and only cutting out the material desired. From electrical boxes to window frames and more, this new bit eliminates the need for measurement. The 5/32-inch diameter bit is compatible with both RotoZip and competitive Spiral Saws(r). To use the bit, users simply plunge directly into the work piece; pilot holes are unnecessary. Next, they drive the bit in one direction until it hits the edge of the object they desire to cut out. And finally, utilizing the object as a template, users follow the edge around to complete the cut. By simply following the template, users end up with a perfect cut every time. The XB-MPGP2 Tracing XBIT is available in a two-bit execution at home centers, hardware stores, and wherever professional power tools are found. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $11.99.
