New Milwaukee Tools from NPS2017 – Accessories

Every year in June Milwaukee tool hosts a special event called the New Product Symposium in which they showcase new Milwaukee products. I wasn’t able to make it this year but fortunately Milwaukee shared some of the news of their new products with me – and this year is a great one!

In the last four posts we took a look at their cordless M18 and M12 power toolslighting, storage products, and hand tools & accessories. In this article we’ll take a brief look at their newest accessories for power tools such as screwdriving, drilling, cutting, and dust collection accessories.

Just keep in mind I don’t have pics of each item yet, but I do have a short description. I will update with new pics as they come in.
