RE: Oscillating Multitool uses

In my experience the tools themselves seem very similar and there are now many lookalikes however the most important thing is the range of "blade devices" you can get for cutting, sanding, polishing etc. By far and away Fein have the greatest range of blades for many different applications. Make sure that whatever multitool you buy ( I have a Bosch 240V) you can get an adaptor to use the fein blades as well as the native (ie Bosch in my case) blades. Also Bosch make a 12V version which I am thinking about getting for more convenience but apparently the charge only lasts for about 15 mins before you need to recharge. So good for quick jobs when mains power is problematic.

Fantastic for tight cuts, plunge cuts etc. Very worthwhile in my view.
