5 Things You Can Do With An Oscillating Tool


An oscillating tool is a compact, portable power tool that can work with a wide range of accessories, which can be used to sand, cut, scrape, grind and polish. The blade or the attachment vibrates back and forth at a very high speed making the tool much easier and safer to use than any circular saw or a jigsaw. It will cut through virtually any material that includes wood, drywall, metal, cement, mortar, plastic, and fiberglass. Moreover, what's the most amazing thing about this tool is its versatility that this tool can work in narrow spaces, awkward angles, and tight corners.

 

 

 

1. Plunge Cuts are Easy. This is probably one of the things that most people love to do with an oscillating tool. This tool is designed for making difficult plunge cuts. However, with an oscillating tool, this job is easy, considering you use the right blade for the job. While multi tools are commonly used to cut holes in drywall, they can also manage any job that requires plunge cut. You can begin a mortise then make a notch, cut trim and casings for flooring.

2. Use Like an Orbital Sander. By changing the blade accessory applicable for sanding operation, you can use the oscillating tool as a small yet accurate sander. It may not be best for handheld sanders, but it will work for small tasks. We like the performance it gives us over the work. And this is what I love about this tool because of its versatility that can be applied anytime and any place.

3. Flush Cuts in Wood, Drywall, and Metal.  Changing the accessory for a half-moon blade, you can easily make longer cuts in drywall, metal or wood. You will be surprised at the ease of the cut. We did quite a bit of this in our Ryker saw blades. The wide area of the half-moon blade helps you hold straight to a line while cutting the material.

4. Strip, Peel, Scrape. If you are dealing with old peeling paint, unidentifiable gunk, and more can be removed easily with a scraping blade. And it is the easiest and convenient way to remove irritable paints at home.

5. Undercut Doors. One of the best ways that Pros use an oscillating tool is for undercutting doors when tiling or doing some flooring jobs. Get a Ryker cutting blade when going after hardwood trim, and you will be done in no time. Effective and accurate!
