  • Oscillating Multi-Tool
  • Anyone have one of these??, I bought one off EBay to use on my old camper, There's several places I need to make a flush cut against walls and a closet , I had never heard or seen one of these tools till a friend bought one a couple years ago and even then I thought it was a joke but now I can't wait for mine to arrive LOL

  • I bought one of the "china freight" tools 2 years ago when I was remodeling the house we bought in Milan, Mich. There were a number of problems that this tool made so easy to work through rather than some major tear out and rebuild.

  • When remodeling our main bathroom a few years back, I bought a high quality model and that one tool alone (to me) was handier'n zippered fly in my pants and a button on a shirt! And as others here have posted about them, they're good for uses on an almost infinite number of projects.

    Personally, whether one is a carpenter, mechanic, welder or whatever (or all the above), I don't think one can own too many (hand or powered) tools.

  • Like Steve, I bought a sears battery powered one when we put new flooring in our house. Have used it for several small projects since.

  • Like Carson, I picked up one from Harbor Freight because I wasn't sure if I would like it or use it much. That sucker is as handy as a Dremel tool, but for the heavy-duty jobs. The more you use it, the more ways you think up to use it.

    Nice work on the camper, #1. You ain't half bad for a damn Yankee, bro.......LOL

  • Had a HF one for about five years. Can't use it for everything, but sure comes in handy, especially when redoing old trailers.

  • Re: Oscillating Multi-Tool
  • Well thanks Ed (I think) LOL

    The tool I bought is not the link I posted, like you and others I was not sure I would like or use this tool so I bought a $30.00 dollar china tool, I now wish I bought the one shown for another 30 bucks, it has quick connect blades and variable speed which mine does not, Oh well, still happier than a southerner asking "If I divorce my wife is she still my sister ???"

  • I picked up one of the Harbor Freight versions of the Multi Tool and it works great for the few small jobs I had for it. It is a handy addition to the tool box.

  • I like the Craftsman one that I got Christmas a year ago. Great for cutting off bottoms of door trim to make it easy to install flooring. The sanding triangles work nicely too. I wish they had a wider blade too. I would like to see a chisel attachment as well. How's your nail gun doing??

  • Camper is looking good. What did you use for the ceiling board?
    You could rent that as a NY apartment for 10K a month!
    Down south here you might get $50 and 4 families move in..

  • Used 1/4" plywood underlayment for the ceiling, worked very well, our good friend JerryU is also refurb'n an old camper and has been a big help with suggests and material info, also found several vintage travel trailer sites that have been helpful.
    Pretty much fixing this up for our kids,Grand kids and guest for down at our "private" camp site.

    Maybe in NYC but around here might get $75 a month with only 3 families moved in
