Beadboard wainscotting walls in bathroom


oscilating tools are specialty tools,, hte jigsaw blades i mentioned arent a specialty blade its just a different blade that costs the same for a pack as every other type of blade. here they run $10.50 for a 5 pk..

most people dont have oscilating tools, carpenters as well. i have two but i specialize in interior trim for high end remodels

Well thats your opinion. Just because we have a different opinion of whats more efficient and cost effective doesnt make it wrong just because we arent pros.

Beadboard wainscotting walls in bathroom


im not saying its wrong, im saying why would someone go out and spend $100 on a specialty tool for one cut. thats not cost effective for anyone

im also curious as to where your finding a $4 multitool cutting blade.. the cheapest ive seen for an individual blade is $9 and thats a junk blade. my hardwood supplier has their own flooring and stair installers on staff so they buy the fein blades by the case. what would cost $25 is now down to $7.50 a blade but they have to buy 2000 at a time

Beadboard wainscotting walls in bathroom


Thats because i buy them individually from Home Depot. I bought my tool for $20 from sears and its been a lifesaver. I even used it when i built my first two cabinets this weekend. I buy the Dremel blades, not fancy ones but they do the job better than anything ive seen. Ive used fine cut blades on a jigsaw, ive used so-called "delicate" cutting blades on a circular, and every time they tore up the beadboard no matter what i did or how careful i was or whether i had it upside down or right side up. Pros might have some tricks but for a DIYer, the multi-tool is the easiest ive found. Only bad thing about it is that it messes with your nervous system to use it, makes you light headed from the vibrations. Then again, ive gotten that feeling from my jigsaw too, at times.

I've used mine for cutting holes for outlets, cutting out a section of drywall to make a repair, under cut door jambs, removing old mastic from walls, making the short cut when repairing a piece of hard wood flooring, grout removal, cutting underlayment, cutting plastic and copper pipe in tight spots, and a bunch of other jobs.

I've been buying my blades on Amazon.com, a pack of 15 is onlt about $6.00 a piece for my Multi Crafter.
