Adding to its cordless line, Ridgid has added a 12-volt tool with interchangeable heads. You can buy the JobMax Multi-Tool with two batteries and charger as a starter kit for $99, then add separate heads as you need them for $40 to $50 apiece. The oscillating Multi-Tool comes with two saw blades and a triangular sanding pad with sandpaper, but you can use the included universal adaptor to mount any accessory heads or attachments from competitive brands. Optional heads for this unit are a right-angle driver with quick-connect chuck, right-angle drill with three-jaw chuck, ratcheting driver with 3/8″ square drive, and a right-angle auto-hammer that drives nails with repetitive taps of the driver shaft.
