I am a team member on the R&D department at Imperial Blades.  I have to say that I have the best job in the world.  Analyzing saw blades, testing saw blades and creating new innovating products is my specialty!

“Master of the MultiMaster”

My experience with the Multimaster goes back some twenty plus years. Most of that time I was working with and for Fein Power Tools as a territory sales rep. A good bit of what I learned about these strange oscillating tools has come from customers. There have been many, many tent sales, and many, many projects with the Multimaster. Over time I became well acquainted with my customers, and I also go to know the orange oscillating tool quite well. Many times you will hear a salesman tout the features of a tool. My customers and I were more interested in the function of the tool. That’s where we learned how to use the Multimaster in different situations, and that’s where we tried to make the blades last longer. I heard it over and over, “Why are the blades so expensive and why don’t they last longer?” Now I am with Imperial Blades and I have an answer for both of those questions.

    Dave or Russ,

    I talked with Ben after he followed up on a web purchase I made — the T340 Storm blade. I have some engineered hardwood flooring that the previous homeowner glued directly to the subfloor. I want to replace it, but I’m not confident a pry-up job will keep the OSB subfloor intact. I thought, hey, the oscillating tool is a the right one for the job, so long as I have a good blade. So that’s my application — cutting through a cured resin glue between engineered hardwood flooring and OSB subfloor. Do you think the T340 is up for the task?

      There’s nothing like the relief of finding what you’re looking for.

        Rating The Stanley RB-5 plane is a nice compromise for wonrkig on surfaces one wants to plane smooth, but which may contain hidden grit &c. which would damage a fine plane blade having spare blades (just don’t store them under the handle when using the plane) allows one to do this.

      Stuart, as we discussed on your pruoives post, I purchased this form Amazon about a month ago and really like it. I have/had the Nextec cordless multi tool and the Genisis (Amazon) corded both of these can’t compare to the Porter Cable. The biggest change is obviously the tooless blade change it’s so much easier than pruoives tools. It’s a nice package and includes quite a few sandpaper sheets. For the price I paid I felt it was a great deal. It is loud, but all of these multi-tools seem loud, although the Gensis .was by far the loudest out of any of the tools I have tried.

    Will you be making blades for the Dremel Multi-max MM40
    the new quick lock accessory change system seems to need the half open design of the dremel blades. There may or may not be a real downside to the new system depending on your answer.

      We do not yet have a blade for the new Dremel Quick release tool. We are in the process of making a new blade line but it is still in the early stages..

        I have a Fein Sander, (what the MultiMaster USED to be called about 1/4 cernuty ago. It was second-hand when I bout it in ’99 and has stopped me dropping in the poo so many times I’ve lost count. Now these things are common place. I stand by Fein as the original and best, ( even if mine doesn’t have speed control on-board), When you buy quality you never regret the second mortgage. Highly recommend.

      I’ve own mine for 2 years now. It has saved me much time when it get into tight places. Adding Imperial Blades to my bags made a big dneferfice in cutting. Rockwell’s blades are terrible. The only negative I have is the blade change. I change from a wood cutting blade to a nail cutting blade often and it is a pain. The blade comes loose too if the allen screw was not seated properly. I’m anxious to try out this new Blade T340 that claims to cut deck screws
