    Fein’s 3year warranty is fake,they do not response to the warranty claim,do not buy their product online.I bought a MM500,it’s became faulty and I tried to make warranty claim but no response.

    You talk way to fast. This is supposed to be informative not a race to cram in as many words as you can.

  5. Cris Simmons on June 29, 2023 at 1:49 pm

    I almost bought one tonight but was still unsure. I live in a camper. Limited space & money so i really weigh it all out before purchasing.
    You have made my mind up๐Ÿ˜ thank you sir for doing this video.
    Checking out through your links. If I purchase online it will be through here

    With the right file you can recondition and sharpen your blades saving money!

  8. Keith Rose on June 29, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    A leatherman is a multitool. These are called occilating tools.

  9. W Li on June 29, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    thanks. man. it helps.

  10. Emmet Roche on June 29, 2023 at 1:54 pm

    That’s the uglyest looking oscillation tool ever seen ๐Ÿคฃ

  11. Tim Klippel on June 29, 2023 at 1:54 pm

    Thank you

  12. LJ's How to on June 29, 2023 at 1:54 pm

    How do I know when my wood cutting blade is dull? Simple – lots of smoke- ๐Ÿ˜‚

  13. guy Williams on June 29, 2023 at 1:56 pm

    Just a little caveat on tip number 7 . When cutting wood and it starts a fire it’s time for a new blade . Don’t ask ……

  14. Samuel T on June 29, 2023 at 1:56 pm

    there are many multi tools like i said,let the vibration do its job.all you have to do is target or trace the task.I like this tools smart man safety first.

  15. Snowball Luvs Snow on June 29, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    What blade do you recommend for paneling? Iโ€™m doing a travel trailer remodel and am going to be using paneling for the walls. Iโ€™ve used my multi-tool for sooo much of this remodel! I even used the blade to cut the foam insulation boards and I was amazed at how easy it was to cut!

  16. Back to the Basics 101 on June 29, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    Thank you for the very informational video

  17. DragonSlayer on June 29, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    Sorry sander was above it with a tab instead of the batter and a tic face dog was behind the saw
    while dad could eat the 3 ticks with a fireman pneumatic cutter cover the women facing down with a rifle was a ball with a owl nose inside it

  18. Pete Rh** on June 29, 2023 at 2:02 pm

    Excellent thank you so much

  19. loren salazar on June 29, 2023 at 2:02 pm

    I just bought one, and an extra one as a christmas gift.
    After seeing this and a few other videos, they both go back to Amazon before I get them dirty.
    This tool has nothing to offer that standard tools can not handle as well.
    Thanks for the video. Well done.

  20. Jack Russel on June 29, 2023 at 2:04 pm

    That music playing in the background is drowning out your voice.

  21. Beetle Clemens on June 29, 2023 at 2:06 pm


  22. John Stinson on June 29, 2023 at 2:06 pm

    Great tips! Thank you.

  23. Jason Cole on June 29, 2023 at 2:12 pm

    I find that blunt blades are good for cutting drywall

  24. Johnny Shinnichi on June 29, 2023 at 2:13 pm

    Thanks for all the good tips. You’re right about the ear protection: These things make the most annoying sound of any tool.

  25. Nikki Palenkas on June 29, 2023 at 2:14 pm

    I was going to rent one of these, and found it it was not available for rental. I had to buy one and was kicking myself for having to spend more than I wanted. After watching this video, I feel really good about my purchase because I’m realizing how many uses it has! Thank you!

  26. Gary Kreutzer on June 29, 2023 at 2:14 pm

    Have you tried the new blade that cuts a perfect hole for single duplex electrical boxes? Looks like a BIG timesaver.

  27. s.o.s. diy repair on June 29, 2023 at 2:15 pm

    Awesome ๐Ÿ‘

  28. Elizabeth Gray on June 29, 2023 at 2:17 pm

    We need to route an area on exterior columns to take a bracket to hold the railing. A router can work on the upper one but the one closest to the floor has base trim so the router cannot access. Can this tool be used? Thanks

  29. Andrea๐ŸŒบ on June 29, 2023 at 2:18 pm

    Thank you. I need to buy a multi tool a learn how to use it. Or maybe I should just find a husband ๐Ÿ˜†. Your tips are very helpful ๐Ÿ™‚.

  30. Eric Noak on June 29, 2023 at 2:19 pm

    Great Video ! Your shop is an inspiration!!

  31. Greg Dunda on June 29, 2023 at 2:21 pm

    use a tool called the Sharp Pog to resharpen the blades

  32. James Bomd on June 29, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    hi just arrived in 2022, been using my Dads tools from the 1980s, seen this tool on web sites & in shops however was scared off by how the tool was shaped, or how to use the tool, so off to Amazon now to perches one
    i do wonder if it will cut through perspex, i dont want to use the dreaded 1980s Jigsaw

  33. Jseen on June 29, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    I held off on buying one for a long time thinking "I don’t need it" then I had to get one to cut some cabinet trim.
    Holy crap it’s probably my second most used tool behind my drill now.

  34. skip877 on June 29, 2023 at 2:23 pm

    This was very helpful and insightful. thanks!

  35. Team Peaches Dog Training and Education on June 29, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    I love your videos. They are very well produced. You have a great personality, and you explain things extremely well. You are right on about all of your subject matter. I can depend on the info that you share. I find the bloopers at the end of the videos entertaining.

  36. Cris n Mary Fam on June 29, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    4:25 playing cards, that have that wax material coating on them.. work wonderful.

  37. Jseen on June 29, 2023 at 2:26 pm

    One more tip (IDK if it was said) is that if you bump into your skin, it won’t cut you!

  38. DragonSlayer on June 29, 2023 at 2:27 pm

    Theres a sander behind the oscilating saw with a tab at the back as a battery so 7 can fall on its back to make it long

  39. Mrsblackirish 7 on June 29, 2023 at 2:28 pm

    I was hoping you would teach how to change the heads lol

  40. Richard Goff on June 29, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    Great tips, Thanks…also like the bloopers.

  41. dadduorp on June 29, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    I just bought the Makita (18v) Multi-tool as I can not find a practical way to cut a couple finger/box joints in a 5" wide (3/4" thick) boards. Has anyone used this tool for that specific purpose?

  42. Z I a h on June 29, 2023 at 2:32 pm

    Just got my first oscillating tool ever which is the Dewalt 12v, I think itโ€™ll be a great tool for me as a beginner!

  43. MyDogWorriesALot on June 29, 2023 at 2:33 pm

    I think I know whats coming $ ๐Ÿ‘

  44. Jean DALLE on June 29, 2023 at 2:36 pm

    Just wasted 12 minutes of my life. NOTHING in this video should be unknown for anyone using a power toolโ€ฆ.

  45. Adam Watts on June 29, 2023 at 2:39 pm

    Very helpful

  46. Josh on June 29, 2023 at 2:43 pm

    great videoโ€ฆ the music felt a little busy under your voice at some times. But great job!

  47. Joseph White on June 29, 2023 at 2:43 pm

    So you sat there in awe of some guys tool

  48. LeeLee on June 29, 2023 at 2:45 pm

    Excellent vid. Just bought this, read the manual but your presentation added so much more

  49. justlovethisgame on June 29, 2023 at 2:45 pm

    Far too much waffling on and on, need to see all these tips in action mate!

  50. James MacIntyre on June 29, 2023 at 2:46 pm

    I saw a guy on youtube using one of these to cut a rectangular hole in VINYL SIDING for installing a vinyl siding block
