|"Oscillating Multifunction Power Tool"|
Now I know Fein has had these out for several years, and I have drooled over them many a time (mostly when I was reefing out the caulking on the deck). But that tool, though I am sure it is a Fine Fein, was just too much $$$ for me to justify.
Well, $19.99 – OK. Give it a try. And does it work. I have no way of comparing it to the Fein, but can say – for those jobs where the high speed osculating blade works, this is magic. Those devil seams used to take me 30-45 mins / segment to get them nice and clean for re-caulking. About 5 with the multi-tool. Just today I needed to enlarge a clearance hold around a pipe -- would have been hard to get a chisel in there. Multi-tool took 5 minutes.
This is a Harbor Freight tool. I still get a chuckle out of the ‘spare brushes’ that came with it, and it does vibrate like the Worlds no end – glad most tasks only take 5 minutes. But for those times when it is needed, it works. Who would have guessed.
And all for $19.99!
