EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass., March 9, 2011 — LENOX®, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, announces the introduction of the LENOX Tight Spaces Tubing Cutter. The compact and ergonomic design is optimized to cut rigid copper in the small, cramped or tight spaces that tradesmen often encounter.
The LENOX Tight Spaces Tubing Cutter features a smaller, ergonomic design that needs only ½″ clearance to make a cut. For easy use, the brightly colored arrows clearly show which direction to turn the cutter. The non-slip grip is made from grooved cast aluminum to allow for secure handling in a cramped and potentially damp space. The stainless steel interior parts prevent rust if exposed to moisture.
"The design features of the LENOX Tight Spaces Tubing Cutter are a direct reflection of the needs of our users," stated Lisa Koliopoulos, associate product manager, LENOX. "The constant tension and ergonomic shape allow users to get a sometimes challenging job done with ease."
The LENOX Tight Spaces Tubing Cutter is available at plumbing, electrical and construction distributors nationwide and comes in ½″, ¾″ and 1″ sizes, as well as a storage kit containing all three. The suggested retail price ranges from $7.99 to $19.95, depending on size.
