Re: Best rotary cutting tool?

Got the Harbor Freight model with adjustable speed. Wow. I had no idea that thing would cut like it does. I just experimented yesterday, I'll update with some pics of my project that I mostly bought it for. Anyway, way cool tool, especially for the price.

Now, for the next question. I wonder if the other brands blades will fit the HF model? Lowe's is a lot closer to me than HF!!!

Re: Best rotary cutting tool?

I think or believe most oscillating tools somewhat follow the Fein blade design---if that's the case there should be a ton of choices regardless of the brand.

Of course once you've settled on the particular blade you use most often there's always the on-line sellers---they're even closer!

Re: Best rotary cutting tool?

The one I have is the cheap silver thin kerf, about $40 when I bought it about 5 years ago. When I get home I can see if the model # is still legible on the blade.

I'm pretty sure it's a 80T. This blade also cuts plastic quite well.

I have the $$$ red teflon Freuds for woodworking, one for laminate/plywood, one for ripping, and one for cross-cutting.

I'm not a Freud fanboy or anything, but they are readily available, and not ridiculously expensive.
