WOOD magazine review

Value-priced and a great sander

Review Summary

This tool's molded body makes it very comfortable to hold and grip when using. Although it cuts and scrapes and works with all the other accessory attachments, this tool feels and acts most like a detail sander (using the triangular sanding pad, of course). Its sanding results were superior to all the multi-tools we tested.
But you don't get many accessories for the price, and the blow-molded plastic case is cramped: you need to remove wide attachments to fit the tool back in the case. But when you do need to change accessories, you don't have the remove the bolt entirely: just slip another U-shanked attachment over the bolt and retighten. Despite having a soft-start motor and the highest speed settings, this tool cut slowly using its own blades. Uses only Dremel attachments as well as those from Bosch (using the Bosch adapter).
