Repair & Care Of Floors
Here's a gizmo with unlimited potential. We caught up with the Fein people at the 2008 National Wood Flooring Association tradeshow. I've heard nothing but raving reviews from installers that own the tool, but never owned one for myself, until I had to buy one of these beauties. It's one of those gadgets I really don't need, but I'm sure it will prove extremely useful in the tool shed instead of pulling out the bulkier power tools.
There are two types of Fein Multimasters. One runs on 400 watts, more preferred for somebody that may need to work with it everyday, or the lower priced 200 watt, effective for anyone. No tools required when changing blades on the higher priced tool whereas the other model requires the use of an Allen wrench.
The tool is ideal for making smaller cuts other tools cannot reach. Board replacements are an option instead of using a circular saw with hammer and chisel. An assortment of blades are offered that can handle all sorts of jobs included below. Speaking with Bill Moore, a representative of Fein, he stressed the ease at removing older grout lines in ceramic tile. With most cutting tools the blade will often not stay within the grout line. However with this attachment shown (right) no damaged tiles are incurred and the tool is not as intimidating as other power tools.
Other Multimaster Tool Uses• Cut door casings, metal and wood
• Remove grout for color changes
• Cuts metal studs or copper
• Sanding attachment reaches tight spots
