PORTER-CABLE® CONTINUES TO PROMOTE VALUE WITH AN ALL-INCLUSIVE COMBO KIT AND ROUTER BIT SETS AT 2006 IBS
1/11/2006

PORTER-CABLE provides durability and efficiency with six new woodworking tools and accessory kits on display during the 2006 International Builders’ Show from Jan. 11 to Jan. 14. At booth W1501 in the Orange County Convention Center located in Orlando, Fla. PORTER-CABLE will demonstrate its comprehensive Three Nailer Combo Kit with compressor and five new router bit sets.

THREE NAILER COMBO KIT

The Three Nailer Combo Kit, model CFFN251T, featuring an 18 gauge, 1 1/4-inch brad nailer (model BN125A); a 16 gauge, 2 1/2-inch finish nailer (model FN250B); an 18 gauge, 1-inch narrow crown stapler (model NS100A) and a 135 PSI, 6-gallon pancake compressor, comprises a kit ideal for furniture assembly, moulding and interior trim. The kit includes a 40-foot, 1/4-inch diameter, vinyl air hose along with fittings and pipe joint tape. The Three Nailer Combo Kit also comes with a canvas carrying bag with side pockets to easily transport nailers, staplers, air hose and accessories. The Three Nailer Combo kit is currently available for $419.

ROUTER BIT SETS

The five new PORTER-CABLE® router bit sets, models PCRBS03, PCRBS04, PCRBS05, PCRBS06 and PCRBS10, feature patented POZI-STOP® technology and trademarked Monster Carbide™ composition. Unique from competitors, the POZI-STOP® automatic depth-setting router bit eliminates set-up time and creates a longer lasting bit with less vibration and smoother cuts. Additionally, Monster Carbide™ is 40 percent thicker than most standard bits, resulting in better heat and force distribution which creates less friction and faster feed rates.

The 3-piece Laminate Trim Set (model PCRBS03) is ideal for kitchen remodeling, cabinet fabrication, laminate trim and sign making, while the 4-piece Groove and Trim Set (model PCRBS04) facilitates panel, siding and drywall applications. Perfect for tongue-and-groove forming, rabetting, joinery and dado clearing, the 5-piece Straight Set (model PCRBS05) provides the professional contractor with an all-in-one topcutter bit kit. The 6-piece Decorative Edging Set (model PCRBS06) organizes the most popular profiling router bits, allowing users to accomplish profile work, drop leaf tables, edge work and moulding. Comprised of PORTER-CABLE’s best router bits from every category, the 10-piece Master Woodworker Set (model PCRBS10) is ideal for most woodworking router bit projects. Each router bit set comes in a wooden case with the PORTER-CABLE logo embossed in the lid for easy storage. The five router bit sets will be available in February 2006.

SPECIAL GUESTS

In addition to the tools and accessories featured at the booth, there will be guest appearances by Norm Abram, host of “The New Yankee Workshop,” on Wednesday, Jan. 11, and Scott Phillips, host of “The American Homeshop,” on Thursday, Jan. 12 and Friday, Jan. 13.
