Milwaukee Hand Tools Update application

New Milwaukee Hand Tools Introduced for Spring 2016

Milwaukee Hand Tools are welcoming several new members to the NBHD family. You can bet that the tape measure, PVC saw, basin wrench, cable cutting pliers, and hacksaw each have something unique to offer – it’s not just a “we have these, too” kind of mindset. All of the new Milwaukee hand tools come with a limited lifetime warranty like the rest of the line. But enough of my rambling already – you’re here to see the new tools!

Milwaukee 6′ Keychain Tape Measure

You don’t normally think of a keychain tool of any kind to be terribly high in quality. Useful in a pinch, maybe, but never as good as the real thing. Reversing that mindset is the Milwaukee 6 ft Keychain Tape Measure. It features Nylon Blade Protection that safeguards against job site contamination and a 5-point reinforced frame for protection against damage from dropping. It comes equipped with a heavy-duty keychain clip with versatility to clip on belts to keychains or to clip on almost anything.
