Oscillating multi-tools are multi-tasking wonders that offer all the precision you need
Manufacturers are always coming up with new tools to make home improvement, lawn and garden and woodworking projects easier. One of the latest is the oscillating handheld tool. When you look at it, it'll remind you of an angle grinder. Some tools work by rotating blades or bits, but the oscillating tool gets the job done by going back and forth. Since going back and forth is the motion needed for grinding, cutting and sanding, most oscillating tools come with those three attachments.
The tool varies some based on the manufacturer, but there are a few common features. You'll find corded and cordless models. Look for an oscillating tool with a variable speed. You'll have better control as you using the grinding, cutting and sanding attachments to complete a project, especially if you're a woodworker. One benefit of an oscillating tool is that you'll have less sawdust to deal with. It's stability makes it an extremely precise tool. In fact, if you're looking for a tool that will give you accuracy and precision, you don't have to look any further than the oscillating tool. In addition, many times manufacturers boast about the oscillating tool being safer than the alternatives, such as a high-speed rotating bit.
