Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Oscillating Multi-tool Reviews

Our corded oscillating multi-tool reviews cover products that really do things no other tool can accomplish. For example, corded oscillating multi-tools make undercutting doorways easy. They excel at replacing those undercutting hand saws that get the job done, but take forever. When laying tile, wood flooring, or linoleum, make undercutting a doorway with a corded oscillating multi-tool step one. Knowing which of these tools will get the job done quickly can save you a lot of time and effort. Check out our cordless oscillating multi-tool reviews if you need more freedom. Oscillating Multi-tool Reviews That Tell the Whole Story Rather than simply review the oscillating multi-tool accessories, we give a clear picture of how each of the multi-tools will work for a tradesman. We do this by ensuring we use the same accessories whenever possible. One of the newest systems is the Bosch Starlock multi-tool accessory system. This system matches the Fein Starlock oscillating multi-tool system. With the advent of universal multi-tool accessories, this is becoming more and more possible. It definitely evens the playing field. That allows us to test true cutting speed, vibration, and other features of the tool. Then, we can stop wondering whether the oscillating multi-tool cuts quickly—or if the blade makes it fast.

Bosch StarlockMax Oscillating Multi-Tool GOP55-36 Review

Ask just about any carpenter about the utility of the oscillating multi-tool and he’ll tell you that he’s not sure how we all got along without it in the “old” days. For flush cuts, plunge cuts, sanding, grinding, polishing, removing, and much more, the oscillating multi-tool is nearly indispensable on today’s jobsite. Like most power […]

Fein MultiMaster 350 QSL Oscillating Tool Review

If you use oscillating tools with much frequency, it’s probably not a surprise to find Fein all over the top of our shootout results. The Fein MultiMaster 350 QSL kit features roughly the same design as the 350 Q model we reviewed a while back. The big difference is the upgrade to a Starlock Plus […]

You can’t accuse us of not being ambitious around here. Our Managing Editor, Kenny Koehler, decided that the world needed to know the best oscillating tools on the market, and rather than test out a piddly 10 models, he brought in 25 models from both the corded and cordless worlds.  If that interests you, and […]

Fein MultiMaster FMM 350 Q

Fein MultiMaster FMM 350 Q Review

Bigger. Faster. Stronger. Have you ever noticed that every year, car companies use the same words to describe their new models? Words like sleeker, faster, efficient, aerodynamic, etc.  When they say this year after year, it makes me wonder why they didn’t just skip the last 10 revisions and jump straight to the “sleekest.” It’s kind […]

Rockwell Universal Fit System for SoniCrafter X2

Oscillating multi-tool accessories may not be sexy, but simplifying how they are installed is something I’m very interested in. I’m also interested in any way to make either a tool or accessory universal to all other manufacturers’ products. The reason is simple: It’s just too darn hard to have to have to think ahead to […]
