Oscillating Multi-Function Tool
« on: June 19, 2011, 06:42:16 »
Have a number of windows, doors, hull openings on Alan B, Ken hulls in fibreglass. Used the Dremel cutting bits and cut-off disks but still lots of fiddly filing. Anyone ever used the Dremel Oscillating Multi-function tool for this work? Harbor Tools, King Tools has them as well - watched a couple of You Tube videos on them - they look like they might be worth a go. $100 here plus extra blades.

Any ideas?

Thanks,mike

Yes I've been eyeing those units as well Mike.  Still might be a bit large for hard to get at spots.  I cut the bristles off an oscillating tooth brush, glued a short piece of dowel on and then glued a little circular sandpaper disk on the end of the dowel.  Works well for hard to get at spots.

...Hi Guys...

I use a Black & Decker Wizard with small sanding wheel for this work...

It is best to fix the tool in the jaws of a Vice or Wokmate type bench and move the job around the tool...
