  3. +lucy l stfu you look like a orange

  4. If you already had that tool in your shop, why are you using a brand new
    unused tool?

    Cheater, grinding takes much longer than shown in the video. It’s not as
    easy as it appears.

  6. +Handyjack capitalism 😛

  7. pe lo puoi regalare perfavore

  8. Bought a multitool about a week ago, not by Fein but a brand called Worx
    (type: WX 680 Sonicrafter). It’s half the price of a Fein with compareable
    specs (costed me even less as I bought it during a promotion sale). It does
    a great job sawing, cutting etc. As for sanding… well, as with any
    multitool, it’s doable and it maybe has the edge on bigger equipment when
    working on very mall projects but you certainly shouldn’t rely on it to
    become your go-to sanding tool. The cool thing with the Worx is it has a
    special locking system that holds the accessories of most known brands such
    as Fein, Bosch, Makita, Dremel and many more. I’m not getting paid or
    whatever to write this but since this video looked and sounded a bit like
    an infomercial for Fein tools to me I thought I’d even out the field by
    adding my experience with another brand. I’m really curious about the
    brands and types of multitools you guys are using, what your experiences
    are and how you think they compare to, for instance, a Fein in terms of
    pricing and quality.

    Keep workin’ it!

    why not wtih a saw and chisel?

  10. Where the hell is the trick? What you showed is not a trick, thats just one
    of the features of the tool..

  11. thanks for the commercial

    hello Im from Arab pla u can send me one like this thx

  13. I replace some hardwood floor stripes and I was wondering if I can sand
    finish floor to blend unfinanced wood with this multi sanding pads?? Whats
    your opinion ?

  14. when he was doing the sanding, the video was edited for every plug to make
    it look like it only took a second. Hate misleading reviews!!

  15. Thanks, nice demonstration but which attachment do you use to scrape off
    old paint? 2:54 and why is it called multi-tool if it only has 3 different
    attachments, I was hoping for more

  16. he talks like Owen Wilson!! lol

  17. I have a Bosh MX30 (it rocks) and I am currently using it to remove 20 year
    old paint and gunk from a wooden patio. You can use several different tools
    for this. Because there is old gunk (sap + primer) under the paint that
    loads up the paint removal sandpaper in a few minutes, I went a little more
    aggressive. I could use a scraper blade, but it doesn’t work fast enough to
    for me. Instead, I am using a carbide delta rasp, originally meant for
    removing thinset, on face grain, and a hardwood saw blade on the side. The
    hardwood saw blade has fine teeth and works great here as a more aggressive
    scraper, parallel to the wood. The carbide rasp is very aggressive. Very.
    Be prepared for quick material removal and don’t use it on any veneer.
    Since the rasp works much like a rock solid 40 sandpaper, there is some
    sanding to do after, but by then I am down to bare wood. I used the same
    multitool for it all, even taking a break to sand my front door before
    painting. Yay multitools!

  18. @goodcat: it’s not to mislead. Few people can watch sanding for that long
    without falling asleep. Granted, they could have just sped up the video.

  19. isn’t this what a japanese saw is for?

  21. #Handyjack this just sounds like an advert @Μάκης Γεωργακάκης

  22. Ahh so this was just an ad… OK, pity there is no disclaimer at the start
    I could have saved 3 mins

  23. another detailed video that equals just common sense

  24. there’s a lotta spam going on in this comment section
