I pretty much fell in love with the Fein Multimaster within the first 5 seconds of the store demo. Fein has a demo stand set up at the ToolKing Superstore (and probably other places where it is sold) and I tried it out cutting grout. It removed the grout easily and quickly and with no strain on my part. As someone who has used a hand grout scraper to scrape out the group in a bathroom, this tool was like a dog door to a 9-5er.
The Fein Multimaster will save you time because it does all those little tasks that you normally do by hand, completes them accurately and in half the time. For instance, cutting out the bottom of door jams to install tile or flooring or scraping flooring glue off before you resurface. The Multimaster is also good in space confining places.
The Multimaster comes with an extensive set of accessories such as a carbide rasp to scrape mortar, a lightweight sanding pad that you can use to clean up your headlights, and multiple sanding attachments to get into corners and edges for when you are refinishing furniture, antiques, etc. (Yea, I wish I had one in college when I was refinishing my Aunt Marge’s antique doors – no wonder she paid me to sand them by hand!)
The Multimaster is lightweight and yet has a very powerful oscillating action. It weights about 2 pounds and yet will trim the ends off a 2×6 and cut through metal piping. Sure, you could use any number of power tools for these small tasks but that’s the big difference. You only have to have one Multimaster to do all these little tasks. One tool, many attachments, many uses and it’s not made at some random factory in China – it’s made in Germany at the Fein manufacturing plant. Quality control at it’s highest.
