It's quiet here lately - holiday time ?  Pope is  coming ? Flu shots ? New dog food ?   Anybody Home ?

Years ago I purchased the Fein detail sander.  Great tool for sanding filled in repairs - putties - bondo - and sanding into corners.  Then they came out with the oscillating blades for the sander and the Fein tool required an adapter to use the cutting blades.  The adapter was never that good - it slipped.  Last week I purchased the Bosch a dedicated oscillating tool  - worth getting if you don't have one - the Multi X tool kit on Amazon runs about $ 129.00. 
 This is one of my favorite tools for controlled cutting - easy to use - no chance of grabbing or pulling out of the cut and ruining a finished area - comes with a variety of blades -  get the corded one -  it's made very well - solid and powerful -

Yeah, I bought the Fein a few years ago when it was the only game in town.   Then their patent expired and everyone jumped in.

I bought it mostly for detail sanding.   I found it left a lot of scratches and was not that useful in the triangle pad mode.   And the cove and bead sander did slip a lot.

Carpenters and handymen tell me it's one of their favorite tools.    Meh, I must have different job needs.

You'd think they'd figure out a way to manufacture garnet paper for the tool ?

I restore vintage trailers. Bought my first Fein multi-tool three years ago and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Liked it so much I bought a second one that had the improved quick attach lever instead of the screw and allen wrench way of securing the attachments.
