WOOD magazine review

Good value in a corded model

Review Summary

Craftsman's corded multi-tool beats its cordless version hands-down, and holds it own against the Rockwell SoniCrafter battling for second-best corded version. (The Fein MultiMaster is tops in corded.) The Craftsman showed good power and accuracy with a body that weighs less than 3 lbs, feels comfortable to hold for long work sessions, yet has the heft of a solidly made tool.
Still, it's got a limited speed range (11,000 to 19,000 strokes per minute), a 100-dB noise level, and a dust port that's easy to put on and take off, but does little to help suck up dust.
