SKIL's New Oscillating Multi-Tasker is Perfect for a Variety of At-Home Projects

    11 piece multi-tool kit provides solutions for do-it-yourselfers


MT. PROSPECT, Ill., April 19, 2011 /CNW/ -- If you only have room for one power tool in your life, SKIL has the right option for you. SKIL Power Tools is launching the new 1400-02 Oscillating Multi-Tasker(TM), an 11-piece multi-tool kit designed to help do-it-yourselfers with a variety of at-home projects. The versatility of the 1400-02 is perfect for fix-ups and installations, as well as light to medium-duty remodeling projects.

Whether leveling off piping, removing grout or sanding small furniture pieces, the 1400-02 offers convenient features that include: a powerful 2.0 amp motor, a no mar head to protect walls from scratches when cutting, a convenient, integrated dust extraction port for maximum dust collection and a soft-grip for added comfort and control.

The SKIL Multi-Tasker features OIS(TM) (Oscillating Interface System), a worldwide standard for universal accessory interface.
