3 Types Of Multi-tool Blades That Should Be Included In Your Kit

If you are an enthusiastic DIY’er, it is imperative that you own a highly functional multi-tool that can be used to complete a wide range of tasks. You don’t have to worry about lugging a heavy toolkit when a single piece of equipment can be used to manage jobs like tightening/loosening a screw, cutting metal and wood, removing grout, and cutting trim molding. For best results, it is important to select the right multi-tool blades for the job. We’ve listed a few attachments that are commonly used and must be a part of your toolkit:

Bi-metal multi-tool blades:

As the name suggests, two types of metals are welded together to make bi-metal multi-tool blades. They are used to cut through different metals and saw wood. These blades are also commonly used when installing floorings and cabinets to undercut door casings, making pocket cuts into drywalls or cutting sections of molding.

Scraping blades:

These blades do exactly as their name suggests – they scrape. They are primarily used to scrape old paint, silicone, and adhesives, and remove old caulk. You can buy these blades in different styles, like stiff, blunt, straight, and more, depending on the material you need to scrape. For example, to remove vinyl or paint layers, use rigid scrapers, and use flexible scrapers to remove caulk and adhesives.

Grout removal blades:

Carbide-grit grout removal blades are perfect for removing grout between tiles. You can grind grout from the joints between wall tiles, or even cut certain materials with precision. These blades are often round or semi-round, come in various thicknesses, and oscillate back and forth.  The oscillating motion ensures that dust doesn’t spew around, minimizing the clean-up.
