FEIN MultiMaster FMM350Q Oscillating Multifunction Tool
The folks at FEIN recently sent us their new and improved, FEIN MultiMaster FMM350Q oscillating multifunction tool, to test and evaluate.
FEIN has been inventing and perfecting tools for a long time. Wilhelm Emil Fein invented the first power tool , and electric drill, in 1895 blazing a trail in the tool industry.
FEIN invented an oscillating power tool in 1967, the same year I was born. Since then they have made improvements to the oscillating tool, set standards and blazed the trail for other manufacturers to copy.
Today you can find an oscillating multitool in almost every tradesman’s tool box. I’ve been using the FEIN MultiTool for about ten years and still remember saying, “why didn’t I get this sooner,” after I first used it.
What is a Oscillating Multifunction Tool?
An oscillating multifunction tool combines several individual functions in a single unit. Its diverse range or uses and unrivaled capabilities allow it to be used to;
- Flush-cuts against a surface
- Grout removal
- Scraping out caulk, glazing, adhesive, other materials
- Work in tight spots that are inaccessible to other power tools
- Accepts multiple accessories
This tool accomplishes its work through high-speed oscillating [side to side] motion that vibrates up to 11,000 to 19,500 oscillations per minute.
It is the oscillating motion that gives you impressive control without kickback and with little vibration. A wide array of saw blades, scrapers, grinding discs, and sanding pads can be used with the tool which is why it has become popular on the job site.
The Job Site Oscillating Multifuntion Tool
The oscillating multitool has become a game-changer for many contractors, mostly for cutting, such as:
- Allowing cuts in confined spaces
- Flush cuts
- Accurate, finish cuts
Bottom line is that these tools are efficient and ultimately eliminate time consuming tasks that used to take multiple hand tools to complete.
While not a fast cutting tool we like this this saw because it allows money cuts in all types of materials and reaches spots other tools cant all with minimal risk of damaging surrounding materials.
