Without a doubt, homeowners, builders and contractors who use this tool a few times will come to think of the Fein MultiMaster as a necessity. It will pay for itself in very short order.
The Fein MultiMaster is a very safe tool to use because it relies on oscillating technology. The attachments do not revolve like a sawblade, but rather oscillate at a very high speed. Since there is no revolving blade, there is no chance of kickback. And the MultiMaster is especially great for working in very tight spaces.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of having a Fein MultiMaster in your tool kit is its huge selection of attachments that allow you to make easy work of many jobs that would be challenging (if not impossible) without the MultiMaster.
Current models of the Fein MultiMaster use electronic variable speed motors, so whether sawing or sanding wood, sawing metal, removing old grout, or whatever, I can set the oscillating speed to exactly what I need for each of the many different kinds of attachments.
Perhaps best of all, Fein has engineered a quick-change blade attachment system that allows me to switch from one cutting attachment to another instantaneously, without even having to look for a wrench. It uses a built-in rapid lever clamping mechanism that locks the blade securely, or allows the blade to be removed and replaced with another specialty blade.
Whether I'm working at home or for someone else, time is money. That job alone saved hours of work, and that's why I think this little machine is so valuable.
Using a different size saw blade, we cut a section of tile down thru the grout lines and were able to chisel out broken pieces. The carbide rasp accessory sanded right through the thinset in no time, giving us a clean flat surface onto which we could replace the floor tiles. And all of this work was accomplished safely since there were no rotating blades.
Even with its $400 pricetag for the Top model, I am very pleased with the professional quality of my MultiMaster and I recommend it highly. My MultiMaster has already more than paid for itself just with these several small jobs.
I give it 5 stars!
