Experienced, of course.

And we all know that the only thing that I am experienced at is stupidity. So where does that leave me ?



Well post some more of those series. I am going to move this thread to a new folder that I will be creating later today.

I just bought the Fein multi-tool a couple months ago. To me it seems like you get a 1/8" oscillating stroke with it. I've used it to cut existing base board off the wall to set a cabinet, finish the cuts I made with my skilsaw when cutting an access through an existing deck, and cutting back window stool that my boss ran too long. It certainly is not a high production tool but I don't know a better way to cut trim on the wall and the need arises a lot in remodel. It's also a sander and I used it to tune up casing miters on my last job. The casing was MDF with a good part of the profile flat so I used their trangular sanding pad to flush out the flat without touching the profile details. Works great but the cost for accesories is extremely high.

You're absolutely right mikey, a good tool with a few uses. That it isn't cheap and the pcs. / parts aren't either, is the only downside to it. I'm hoping to find a few more uses, but I'm sure that'll just add to the expense of the pcs/parts. I used the included in kit scraper to remove tenacious glazing from a window sash, that worked well. Like that long cord?

When I first got mine, I saw that long cord and thought "Great!". Now I wish it were shorter everytime I have to put it back in the case!

Most of the time I already have the extension cord out anyway.

Once it's our of warranty maybe I'll cut that cord down!

Rich, I take the cord, loop it not too big, then wrap the remaining foot and a half around and through. No problem fitting it in the box wrapped like that.

Here's another job I used it on. Uncased openings that the homowner wanted trimmed.

Had to cut back the basebd, shape the end of the shoe in place. Extend the existing jamb (if you can call it that) and case them out. By not removing the base and shoe to do this job, saved time and money as all had been painted many times, and the plaster wall was spared the flat bar.

Cut back base/shoe. Later I will switch to the sand pad to clean up the exposed floor, again without straying too far into the finished floor. Just enough to even up the finish.

I'll tell you what John, I would recommend it to anyone who's ever called on to do what I've done with it. You have to realize the blades and all the accessories are high, but it just makes you keep better track of how you use it..........you make sure no nails (hopefully), and heck, it's the only tool for some jobs, you pass on the cost like you would sawzall blades etc.

I have gotten long use from the saw blades, the sand paper triangles have long life and there's enough in the kit that I haven't had to reorder. If you want any more information, feel free to ask.

Thanks Calvin, sometimes in remodels one of the most frustrating jobs is cutting out skirting(I think you call it baseboard?)to make new openings without damaging walls etc. I can see a real use for that tool there.

Jeez Bob, not ..............

use it once in a lifetime

Here's something to talk about: What kind of life have you had with your tools? Since this doesn't belong here, hop over to Construction Tools and we'll BS about it.
