Milwaukee New Product Symposium 2019 Highlights NPS19

Milwaukee New Product Symposium 2019 Highlights NPS19

Earlier this month we had the privilege of attending Milwaukee Tool’s annual media event dubbed NPS19. We’ve gone a number of times in the past and have posted similar articles to this one. This is basically a highlight reel from our instagram feed for those of you that were too busy building cool stuff to follow along in real-time. Following along on social while an event like this is going on is like drinking from a firehose. You get enough to drink but there was sure a lot of water that you missed too. Consider this post a slow sipper.

Some of the notable items were the M12 Surge, new cordless framing nailer, cordless rear handle circular saw, 12″ cordless miter, and a router. Sure those are mostly carpenters tools but they had a lot of impressive things at NPS19 in plumbing, automotive, safety, and many other areas. What was different about this year is that they didn’t show us all of the tools, just the ones relevant to TBB readers. Most of you are carpenters so we saw carpentry, safety, lighting, packout, accessories, and automotive.

Tells us your highlights

With that said, I’m sure there are a number of tools in the other breakouts that would be useful to you. If there’s something that you saw in NPS coverage and you think we should know about it, let us know in the comments. If nothing else, tell us how that tool helps you solve a problem.

So what tools impressed you at NPS19 this year? What tool is at the top of your wish list? Tell us in the comments, we would love to hear about it.
