Lightweight Cruiser BootsBilly Boots
Billy Boots’ Cruiser is a lightweight, pull-on boot, molded from lightweight EVA resin. The Cruiser has no seams to leak and no buckles to fail. At just 2.1 pounds per pair, Cruisers are virtual featherweights, yet are tough enough to stand up to challenges like rebar wire ties that can shred ordinary PVC boots. The Cruiser is constructed from EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate), a closed-cell polymer that is completely waterproof. It is flexible for comfort, yet tough enough for factory, farm, or construction work even in the harshest conditions. It provides excellent shock absorption and insulates against cold, even at sub-zero temperatures.
Daredevil Circular Saw BladesBosch
Mount Prospect, Ill.
Bosch Daredevil framing blades are thin-kerf, extra-hard steel plate blades with triple-sharp carbide teeth that power through wood to deliver a combination of speed and a smooth finish. A Speed Coat finish provides added speed and avoids binding in treated or wet lumber. Bosch Daredevil framing blades provide significant performance and product-life improvements over other framing blades thanks to enhancements like Bosch C3 Micrograin Carbide, which stays sharper longer and resists impact damage, and triple-sharp teeth that are sharpened on the face, top and sides.
