Bosch StarLock Plus – The World’s Best Oscillating Tool

Okay I get it, that title is a powerful statement and not everyone will agree.  So go ahead and tell me how wrong I am, but just a little heads up.  I have been married for 13 years and I am used to being told that I am wrong.  However I truly feel this is the best oscillating tool on the market and no, we aren’t getting paid by Bosch.  So why am I making this statement?  Well I will get to that below.  We have reviewed a couple Bosch Oscillating tools in the past.  We reviewed the Bosch...

Sonicrafter F50 RK5141K – The Ferrari of Oscillating Multi Tools?

I got a chance to use the 4 amp Sonicrafter F50 on a recent wood floor we were working on.  I really got to be familiar with the tool and like Rockwell says it really is one of the fastest oscillating tools I have ever tested.  It rips through plywood at screaming speeds, it was impressive.  It weighs 3.3 lbs, has an oscillation speed of 11000-20000 RPM and an oscillation of 5 degrees.  Speed can be set via a dial at the base of the unit.  It is the fastest cutting OMT I have seen cutting through plywood.

Fein invented the oscillating tool, it is a German engineered marvel.  Like most German companies they have always built a quality tool.  Once their patent expired other brands instantly jumped on the band wagon giving Fein some competition.  The next generation FEIN MultiMaster 350 Q has 35% more power, 70% less vibration and is 50% quieter according to Fein.
