Expensive and fragileApr 11, 2009
By Alan N. Fleming
The Fein Multimaster is an indispensable tool. Not perfect but It is much better than any of the other brands. However, the blades are greatly overpriced. They vibrate a lot, burn the wood, can break, and dull easily. That would be OK if they were inexpensive so that you could replace them as often as needed. Can't wait until another manufacturer comes up with an inexpensive good blade. No one will buy Fein blades anymore.

multimaster wood bladesOct 30, 2008
use only universal e-cut blades- those made for wood or metal
these blades dull too quickly and don't hold up
and are too expensive as well

Fine FeinAug 23, 2009
By C. L. Moore
"Architectural Millwork company owner and Counselor"
These are great for cutting softer woods and plywood. Don't use them on hard woods like maple because the teeth will deteriorate quickly. If you need to cut hardwoods use the 1" wide blades, they are much better. Fein makes good products but they must think that we are all rich like they must be. Their prices are way too high. Soon there will be others that will interchange and the prices will come down. In the meantime we will keep making them rich.

Not a good choice for most applicationsMay 11, 2008
These blades are very expensive. They should not be used in a situation where the sides will hit against something because the teeth on the sides will break off. For unobstructed trimming they work great. So the performance was disappointing as I used both the wide and narrow blade for only a couple hours and the blades lost a significant number of teeth. I returned them and got the standard blades and have had no problems. Cutting speed is a bit slower, but the over all performance is much better. I used them on Dour Fir for mortises. If one were to use them for precision cutting where the sides did not contact other material they may work fine. It appears to me that the teeth are too long for the hardness which the steel needs to be to maintain the cutting edge and are brittle and the force generated by the oscillations is great and therefore breaks them off rather quickly. Where as the standard blade have the teeth size such that they can withstand the forces generated. A little longer cut time is worth the time saved by the amazing operations that would normally take a lot longer. And the standard blades in a 3 pack are much more affordable however still over priced. But they have no competition and until that changes or there are 3rd party suppliers of their blades...

Fein bladesJul 07, 2007
By Sal Scarantino
I never would have purchased a Fein tool had I any idea about the blade pricing. I am a general contractor and window installer and cannot afford to use two $60.00 blades per job. The blades are not durable and will be destroyed when used on fiberglass. The tool is left useless in my garrage due to the blade pricing. I think making replacement blades for the Fein at half the price may be a better business venture.
