3 Commonly Asked Questions About Oscillating Multi-Tool Blades

With multi-tools, you don’t have to spend money on individual accessories. In addition, you don’t have to carry a complete kit, because a single multi-tool can do all the work; this is why multi-tools are a great investment. But you will have to buy multi-tool blades, especially if you plan to use your multi-tool often. Here are a few questions we get asked by clients very often:

1. What Are The Best Oscillating Tool Blades For Cutting Metal

Some of the best oscillating tool blades for cutting metal aren’t huge or humungous; rather, they’re small and compact. They can easily cut through hard surfaces without having to apply extra pressure. Look for carbide-tipped blades to cut through stubborn nails or nuts—the kind that are often rusted and don’t come off a wrench very easily. They’re durable and last at least 10 times longer than other saw blades, and they are about 50 times more durable than ordinary steel-tipped blades. Carbide-tipped blades are affordable as well; however, you’ll have to handle them carefully, for these blades are extremely sharp and can tear through skin easily.

2. What Are The Best Aftermarket Fein Multimaster Blades

Fein oscillating tools are versatile and perfect for a wide range of activities. The only problem with using them constantly is that the blades dull quickly. Choose blades that are carbide-toothed, come with better oscillating angles, and are easy on the pocket. If you’re looking for the best Fein Multimaster Blades in the aftermarket, visit us! We don’t just offer replacement blades for Fein, but for a wide range of brands, including Rockwell, Bosch, Chicago, and Dremel.

3. Why Do I Have To Keep On Replacing My Multi-Tool Blades

The need to replace oscillating multi-tool blades is a common dilemma that bothers most users. Why does my multi-tool keep needing new blades when it performs the same action as any hand saw? While plunge cutting in itself causes stress on the blade, users add to blade fatigue by using fewer teeth. When using a handsaw, you engage anywhere between 140 to 200 blades. In comparison, a (1- ¼”) multi-tool blade uses around 14 teeth. This inadvertently causes pressure on the blade. To avoid this, you should cut using all the teeth; in addition, don’t use the tool for a long time—this will avoid heat buildup and friction.
