this is one of the best tools ive bought in many years . it comes with many different rubber profiles that you wrap sand paper on for sanding mouldings ect. it also has a grout cutter for removeing tiles . a scraper blade , a couple different saw blades , which is what i use it for most . i retrim around doors a lot and usually have to pull the baseboard on both sides and try not to break it after trimming recut the base and put it back . with this tool i only mark the baseboard in place and cut it . ive cut oak like its butter makes a nice cut and saves lots of time i have the blade thats in the pic plus a 3 in. round blade . another great thing is when its running you can put the blade on your hand and it will not cut you !

Good post. I’ve never looked at these much, thought they were just a sander. I didn’t know they did all of that. I’ll have to look into it a little more.

When I bought mine they didn’t have the sanding attachments, but I have them now.
Handiest tool I own for re-modeling work around the house.

I bought one a few years ago and I love it , I don’t know where all the power comes from.
The ultra thin blades just whistle thry wood plaster laminate etc a dn leave a clean edge.
I can remove grout with it without damaging the tile and yes , I can sand with it!

Cheers

Bob

I saw this advertised sometime back, and thought it was an expensive hand tool. Now that you have some experience with it, length of use, etc, it may be time to look at it again.

It always looked great in the videos. Thanks MrT.

I’d heard about these from other trim guys. Nice to know there’s a tool that functions as designed and stands up to everyday use. Good review.

always,
