HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, February 16, 2010 1 ............................................. HOMELIVING Clever tools for busy city slickers If you own a dwelling, it's important to know a few DIY tricks and tips. On television and in magazines we've seen how much money you can save on DIY projects. With more and more Australians swapping the quarter-acre block and Hills hoist for harbour views and the city buzz, the importance of DIY is even greater today. Bosch is making it easy for Australians with small dwellings to bring DIY home through a range of mighty yet mini tools. For city slickers low on space, Bosch is making the shed or workstation a thing of the past with tools such as the Bosch Ixo cordless screwdriver. The ideal starter tool for a first apartment, the Ixo weighs less than a coffee cup and features an integrated light for working in dim areas. Those who enjoy the tailor-made life will appreciate the Ixo's streamlined ergonomic design as it allows full control while forward, reverse and charge indicators always keep users fully informed. Ideal for occasional fix- its or projects, the Ixo can be stored easily in a kitchen cupboard. City-dwellers want it all, and with the PMF 180E, they can have a tool that is a sander, saw and cutter all in one. Replacing three tools with one, this product is cash- and clutter-friendly and is the ideal solution for those needing full-size flexibility in small spaces. Weighing in at only 1.2kg, the PMF 180E is also easier to use than ever. Its accessories can be attached at different angles for maximum accessibility in hard-to-reach areas and a soft grip ensures ease of use. For those small on space but wanting big style, the House of Bosch website has a range of projects that can add order and sophistication to a small apartment or city home. A chic sliding door can convert wasted bedroom space into a dream walk-in wardrobe, while a kitchen trolley doubles as a mobile bar during cocktail hour. A sophisticated mirror gives an illusion of space in cramped quarters and is the ideal project for a beginner DIYer. bosch-do-it.com.au Powerphones » ADVERTISING FEATURE Watts and widgets and other high-tech products only make our living and learning easier. One such product is Panasonic's new digital shock-, splash- and dust-resistant cordless phone. Panasonic's 1.8GHz KX-TG64 series, featuring the KX-TG648 Shock and Splash Series, and the KX-TG646 Digital Corded and Cordless Phone models are versatile and handy. ''The introduction of this latest exciting model is a reflection of Panasonic's longstanding investment in the cordless phone market in Australia and our desire to provide easy-to-use, feature- rich products,'' Panasonic Australia product manager Lisa Funnell said.
