Power8 Workshop WS1

Take a moment here, the POWER8 WS1 Workshop is kind of a big deal.  It is the world's first 18-volt cordless table saw, drill press, and scroll saw in the world.  The kit comes loaded with the the three items just mentioned and a circular saw, jigsaw, drill/driver, halogen light, storage case/workstation, a one-hour charging system, and more.  If you are struggling for a really cool gift, stop looking, this is it.  Read on for details and see it in action after the break.

Do-It-Yourself Convenience with Professional Results
The POWER8workshop includes everything you need to complete your tasks in one compact package. With this innovative system, you have four convenient, 18-volt hand-held tools at your disposal. And for added versatility, each of the tools easily slides into the armored case and becomes a powerful table-top tool.

The POWER8workshop includes a cordless drill driver that converts quickly into a bench top drill press; a circular saw that can be converted to a table saw; a jig saw that turns into a scroll saw; and a handy halogen light that converts into a bench top table light.

The tools are stored in a sturdy canvas bag that fits neatly into the durable steel armored case, which also doubles as the system’s portable bench top. When your project is complete, simply pack it all up and tuck it out of the way–every tool has its own place in the carrying case for easy storage and portability.

Innovative 18-volt Powerhandles
At the heart of the POWER8workshop are interchangeable 18-volt Powerhandles. Powered by rechargeable 18-volt batteries, the handles attach easily to each tool, and they also slide effortlessly into the integrated docks on the table when your project requires a sturdy bench-top tool to get the job done.

The one-hour fast charger is built into the case so there is no need to unpack anything to start charging the batteries; there's also a secondary charger point so that you can charge a battery at the same time as using another to power the benchtop functions.

Cordless Drill Driver Transforms into Cordless Drill Press
The drill features a two-speed metal gear box with spindle lock, 3/8-inch keyless chuck, 21 torque settings, and two double-ended driver bits. It offers a no-load speed of 0-350 RPM and 0-950 RPM.

Cordless Circular Saw Transforms into a Cordless Table Saw
Clip the circular saw into the case’s lid to turn the POWER8worshop into a shielded table saw that safely tackles a variety of cuts. The 5-1/2-inch blade is backed by a 700 class motor and all-metal gearbox with spindle lock. The saw offers 3500 RPM no-load speed, an adjustable cutting depth of up to 1.5 inches, bevel cuts of up to 45 degrees, and a rip fence and protractor.

Cordless Jigsaw Transforms into a Scroll Saw
The jigsaw doubles as a scroll saw for cutting tight patterns. It features a variable speed 2400 RPM motor for bevel cuts up to 45 degrees, and metal and wood cutting of up to 1.6 inches in depth. The integrated blade guard keeps you safe as you work.

Cordless Flashlight Transforms into Table Light
Attach the halogen flashlight to the table so you can easily see your work, even in low-light environments. The 0.6-amp bulb lasts up to 300 hours, and the lamp switches easily from pistol-grip to torch-style. A spare bulb is included in the swivel head, and the lamp offers either a 0- to 90-degree flash, or a constant control.
