New release from Kincrome

Got to have an interesting (brief) look around the Kincrome showroom today, and particularly their just-released workbench range.

There are 4 in the range (known as the Kincrome Zoom), from the 2 in 1 to the 5 in 1. They are a Swedish? German design, taking an old concept (that of the Workmate), and pushing it well beyond the original idea.

From what I could tell from the brief look (that was my fault, I didn’t have a lot of time), in summary:

2 in 1: basic functionality – similar to the workmate, but using the construction standards of the rest of the range

3 in 1: slightly advanced, and adds the ability to glue up mouldings for picture frames etc.

4 in 1: large jump in functionality – ability to mount tools (such as routers, circular saws, jigsaws etc) so they are controlled for cross-cutting type operations

5 in 1: takes the setup to a logical conclusion – expandable for large clamping operations, as well as the features of the other models (and particularly the mounting of power tools).

The Zooms are available in Australia (as of this week), and advertising for these can be seen on Channel 7.

FYI, Kincrome will be at the Wood Show, so if you are interested in seeing the units in the flesh (so to speak), and being put through their paces, you know where to go 🙂
