Diamond Blade For A Multi Tool ?


Hey guys I have to make a plunge cut into a marble floor.
I would love to use my cordless makita multi tool just as I would in a wood floor. Does any one know of a diamond blade for multi tools?

What size cut? Ramondi has a very small diamond blade.

Marble is soft, maybe a grit edge blade??

Even with a diamond blade, you will not be able to easily plunge cut into marble with an oscillating tool. Use an angle grinder with a diamond blade.

I get my multi-tool diamond blades at Harbor Freight. They aren't as nice as the Fein, but at 1/5 the price.....

Marble is soft, so any number of ways. What shape cut? If there will be an escutcheon covering the edges, you could even use diamond burr bit in a dremel (kind of like a dentist).

That's cheaper than I would have expected.

Honestly, marble is soft, but not that soft. It is very dense. One will not easily cut marble tile with anything other than a diamond blade in a wetsaw or grinder.

Yea, I've tried that with a fein and diamond blade. Didn't take long to give up and get the grinder out.

I would use an angle grinder and have a wet sponge to hold against the blade to keep the dust down. Just make sure you have some plastic set up to keep the water spraying anything it shouldn't

They're not too bad for grout removal, for most grouts. Just no way they're any good for cutting the tile itself.

Thanks guys
I think I will use the angle grinder for the bulk of the cut and then pick up the fein blade to square up the cut.
