Reviews for Multimaster Tool Kits
|What is a Multimaster Tool (Sonic Saw)?
A multimaster tool (generic names: multifunction power tool, sonic saw, oscillating tool, multi-tasking tool, sonic power tool, rotary tool) is a compact power tool designed with interchangeable saw blades and other attachments for cutting, sanding, grinding, scraping and more. This incredibly versatile tool allows for very high efficiency and smooth operation as it literally vibrates a blade at very high frequencies, hence the popular name sonic saw in many cases.
Its design also enables specialty uses such as a flush cut or scraping. Originally a professional type contractor’s tool, multi-master tool kits have become affordable and are used by do-it-yourself homeowners everywhere. A multimaster tool kit can be used for just about any project, whether it be building and woodworking, repair, remodeling, or restoration work. Ripping into walls, slicing pipes, cutting nails, scraping off old paint, and sanding wood trim to name a few. It can be used on materials from soft woods and hard woods to plastics and metals. These sonic saw tools are known for their ease of use and control, safe operation, high precision and minimal dust creation during use.
You’ve probably seen one of the popular multimaster tools on TV. Let’s take a look at a few of the top-selling multimaster tools to help you decide which might be best for you and your applications.

|Multimaster Tool Review Conclusions
If you were to ask anyone from contractor to handyman to do-it-yourselfer to try the top multifunction tools on the market and then create their own, unbiased multimaster tool review here’s what the result would be in a nutshell. The Fein Multimaster Tool is by far the winner when it comes to quality, durability and general satisfaction. The big “but” with the Fein products though is obviously the price. It’s nearly twice the price of most of the lower-end brands, like Rockwell and Bosch. Dremel tools fall even below those on cost. Comparing the Fein Multimaster with any of these “second place” and beyond brands however, seems to lead to a general consensus among multimaster tool reviewers: And that’s the old saying “you get what you pay for.” Ok, fine, Fein would win any multimaster tool review or sonic saw awards, despite it costing more. But what if you don’t need “commercial” grade quality? What if you just have small jobs every now and then? Well, then it’s possible that you would be fine with a less expensive model like a Rockwell or Bosch.Known uses for multimaster tools and a sonic saw:
