Re: Multimaster Blades


I've been pretty happy with the Imperial blades for wood which is what I can get off the shelf at my favorite store. I toothed in about 16 square feet of 3/4 white oak on one blade which was about 30 cross cuts and a fair bit with the grain.

Fine Homebuilding did a review on most of the major brands a few months ago but I'm feeling way to lazy to go looking for the article at the moment. Maybe I'll find it later if my wife hides a beer on the bookshelf.

Re: Multimaster Blades


I think it was Tools of The Trade that rated Bosch as the best. Funny enough that Bosch owns themselve as well as Dremel, Rotozip, and I believe Fein. Not factoring in the blades/ attachments, I have all three tools and the Fein is by far the best. You get what you pay for...BTW dont buy the Ridgid 12V unit. I bought 2 of them and they both died a premature death. The big box took the 1st one back no problem then gave me a hassle on the second. As I told them, they may look used but I'm not running a tool museum. Each was about 2 months old when they failed. Now I'm stuck w/ multiple attachments without the power unit. Will make a good deal on them if anybody wants them...

Fein is still owned by the family that founded it (descendents of the founders, Carl and Emil Fein). First company to manufacture a power tool.

Nope, Fein ain't owned by the Robert Bosch Company.

Re: Multimaster Blades


I have a Harbor Freight 3 blocks from my new home. I think i will buy a few of the 8 dollar blades for emergency.
At that price no big deal burning them but at $40.00 insane.

I do make sure to use a fresh blade for when the cut needs to be pretty and save the not so new blades for rough cuts and when there is a good chance of hitting nails.

BTW I also have the HF multi tool... for 29.00 when it breaks I toss it and buy a new one.

Thanks for that link Shellbuilder. Was wondering if maybe you've tried the Bi-Metal nail eater blades from that same supplier and if they where they any good?
The price per dozen looks dog poop cheap and it would be nice to find blades that can cut through more than one 8d bright finish nail before having to be tossed out.

These are the blades I was looking at:

Re: Multimaster Blades


The owner of http://www.multiblades.com/multimasterblades.html is a poster on JLC and he makes blades that are as good or better than the fein blades. If you email him he'll even make you custom blades for that oddball job (I've had 3.5" wood cutting blades made for $15 ea.) He's a good man and you'll be supporting a small American business instead of China with the rest. My 2 cents.

I have many of those, they were only .75. I've had a MM for 4 years, you can only cut a few nails with any blade. I've used multiblades, Fein blade, some guy in Australia on Ebay, Imperial blades etc. No love loss for me when i have to cut a couple nails.

Re: Multimaster Blades


If you use any of the good blades, (fein, bosch, or others) you can have them sharpened. There is a guy online that does them for 6 bucks a blade. I use them and the work just as good if not better than the stock. Check out his site at

www.mmbladesaver.com

I stuck with the fein blades rather than switching to another brand even though they are a little more expensive. He says they sharpen better because they are higher quality. Plus he will take blades that have no teeth and cut new teeth in them. And pay for return shipping. They work great for me!

Re: Multimaster Blades


Lot of high dollar discussions about these blades. I bought several hundred of the less than a dollar blades a year ago. They may make twenty cuts and theyre tossed. The $8 to $10 blades were lucky to go 40 cuts. pretty easy math

Re: Multimaster Blades


ive been using the dremel blades reluctantly. i get a 3 pack of the wood blades for $24 at the lumberyard at a discount. they also carry the bosch ones but dont have anything in stock.. not because their selling but because they havent brought any more in.. hd now carries the bosch blades and hte fein blades.. bosch individually for about $20 each.. and the fein blades in packs of 3 or 10.. 3 packs cost $60-70 and the 10 pack is $180.

the rigid blades burn up in no time.. the blade that came with my 12v was actually really good lasted quite a while..
