These tools are now available at Weldfabulous.com.

As the cornerstone of Metabo's new PowerMaster series, the compact and lightweight BS18 LTX combines all the performance and capacity advantages of Lithium Ion with Metabo's long history of advanced tool ergonomics to form a uniquely durable power tool that outperforms most models in its class.

Metabo's new BS18 LTX is ideal for virtually all users working in rugged industrial and commercial applications as well as those working in the field where tool reliability and longevity is paramount. This includes electricians, contractors, remodelers, cable installers and HVAC technicians.

The cordless BS18 LTX drill/driver features Metabo's unique hex spindle technology that allows the user to remove the chuck and drive screws with the 1/4" hexagon recessed spindle. This gives the operator added versatility to use the cordless tool in tight or cramped spaces, such as maneuvering around joists or in assembly operations.

The cordless tool's 18 V, 2.6 AH Li-Power Extreme battery charges faster and lasts longer for optimum performance. Metabo's proven air-cooled charging technology cools the battery pack during charging to shorten the charging process by up to 30%, diminishing tool down-time and boosting useable tool life per charge.

Metabo's revolutionary new charging concept, Electronic Single Cell Protection (ESCP), allows for longer battery service life by electronically monitoring individual cells while in use and during charging to prevent damage. In fact, Metabo's industry-leading XXL three-year warranty covers its tools, and unconditionally covers batteries and chargers for 3 years.

Metabo's BS18 LTX drill/driver features a new dual range torque adjustment giving the user the ability to set the torque to either 13 inch-lbs through 31 inch-lbs or 31 inch-lbs through 114 inch-lbs. Maximum continuous running torque is 372 inch-lbs (soft case) and up to 850 inch-lbs for momentary maximum spikes (hard case) in the event of extreme resistance. The improved cordless drill/driver offers a no-load speed of 0 rpm to 400 rpm in first gear and 0 rpm to 1,400 rpm in second gear.

The lightweight and compact power tool weighs only 4.4 lbs, measures only 8.5 inches and uses an aluminum die cast gear housing, while its four-pole motor provides extremely high performance with an increased power to size ratio. Metabo's exclusive Variospeed full-wave electronic speed control incorporated into the new BS18 allows the operator to easily vary the speed from the lowest to maximum value. The drill/driver is equipped with a 1/2" chuck, offers a drilling capacity of 1/2" in mild steel and 2" in wood and features a built-in LED light for easier visibility in dark spaces.

SteelMax metal cutting saws can save you time, money, and effort compared to others saws. The metal cutting saws cut through steel in seconds and your cut will be cool to the touch. You can cut through 4" x 5/16" mild steel in less than 6 seconds and cut through 2" rebar in 2 seconds. No milling or de-burring required with near surgical dry cut technology.

The SteelMax portable magnetic drills will maintain its rigidity and accuracy throughout the life of your drill. The SteelMax rail system eliminates the need to adjust or maintain traditional gibs. In addition to saving on maintenance, cutter life is increased by reducing movement at the cutter tips. The SteelMax m2AL cutters Last longer, saving you money every day you use the magnetic drill.

The m2AL Annular Cutters feature characteristics that provide the wear characteristics of cobalt with the cost advantage of high-speed steel. The m2AL annular cutter bits have a composition that has an increase in the percentage of both carbon and approximately 1% aluminum. With the increase in carbon and aluminum, the hardness after heat treat can reach HRC68 (Rockwell), with the HRC68 at the tip and reducing to 55HRC on the shank prevents breakage at the highest stress point while improving tip integrity and performance.

If you are looking for performance metal working equipment at a great value, Steelmax metal working tools are the tools for you.

Milwaukee 6370-21 New 8" Metal Cutting Saw & Case


Weldfabulous has the Milwaukee Electric #6370-21 Metall cutting saw and kit available for purchase. This metal cutting saw works exceptionally well and is a great tool in your shop.
Milwaukee's 8 in. Metal Cutting Circular Saw delivers faster, cooler, cleaner, more affordable metal cutting. Forget the showers of hot metal chips and sparks that were once an aerial threat on metal construction jobsites. The 6370 shears the metal, producing a virtually spark-free wake and cool, burr and scorch-free edges that don't require post-cut finishing. Cool cut waste, in the form of metal shavings, is effectively contained with a durable magnesium blade shield and channeled into the saw's integral ChipTank. Cool cutting also means that materials can be handled almost immediately following a cut, reducing downtime.
Driven by a powerful, 13 amp (1-3/4 max HP), 3,700 RPM motor and equipped with a full grill of razor-sharp, cermet-tip teeth, the 6370 tears through tough cuts without hesitation. Count on up to 10 gauge sheets and 1/4 in. steel plate cuts, all day, every day. More extreme cuts, even up to 3/4 in. steel plate, are possible when proper operating techniques are used.
Any way you slice it, cold cutting metal means value. Internal test results indicate that our new metal cutting blades last a minimum of 25 times a standard abrasive wheel. Specially-formulated cermet tip metallurgy and tooth geometry ensure these incredible blades cut faster, stay sharp longer, and resist more impacts. Translation? A significantly lower cost per cut ($0.20 versus $0.60), not to mention the savings associated with 1 versus 25 blade changes.
To keep on target, the new 6370 features a set of on-board sight-line and blade point-of-entry indicators along with a slot in the saw's shoe for a rip fence. It is also the first and only corded metal cutting saw to feature a lower guard retraction lever. Plunge cuts, a frequent challenge for metal roofing contractors, are fast and furious with this exciting new tool. The lever's location, adjacent to the side handle, ensures that the user has both hands firmly on the saw throughout the cut.
Beyond its capacity to cut solid, thicker gauge materials, the 6370, with a 2-9/16 in. cut-depth, screams through most corrugated metal roofing and decking sheets, structural, shape, grating and framing materials in one-pass. Insufficient cut depth means material must be flipped over and re-cut, usually a two-man operation.
To ensure a smooth ride, the new 6370 is equipped with a set of serious comfort features. The tool's rear and side handles feature soft, tactile gripping surfaces and are designed to comfortably fit any user's hands. The side handle is canted forward to reduce wrist strain as well as wrapped completely to the motor housing, offering maximum comfort and control in any cutting orientation.
Down-time is lost time so we've added valuable, time-saving features to the 6370. Removing the blade shield to discard cut waste or change blades is effortless with our exclusive, quick-release shield buckle. The remaining saw controls are conveniently located to ensure fast, effortless operation before, during and after the cut.
Features:

Dry-cut technology provides faster, cleaner, more affordable metal cutting
Durable blade shield with integral chiptank deflects/collects hot chips and sparks
Plunge lever for fast, effective plunge cuts
Exclusive quick-release shield latch for fast waste disposal and blade changes
