New member here. I am preparing my house for sale and this site has been very helpful.
I need to remove 3' x 5' tiled area in front of my fire place. This will be removing the tiles and the backer board (which was glued to floor with liquid nails and some screws)
I am thinking of getting an oscillating tool to do the job rather cleanly as the room is just painted hence dust will be a problem.
As far as I can see on the internet there are 4 main osc. tools in the market.
FEIN - probably the best one but expensive about twice the price of the others
Bosch - battery runs out about 5 -7 minutes
Rockwell - looks like best compromise quality vs price
Dremel - too filmsy and loud
Also there are HF and other brands selling about 1/4 the price of Rockwell etc but I doubt the quality.
I need to complete the job tomorrow, so plan is to go out in the morning and buy the tool, come home remove the tiles and backer board, rip the carpet off so that carpet guys can install new carpet next day. The tool should be good enough to complete the job and continue to serve me in the future projects
I am leaning towards Rockwell but not sure
- Is an osc. tool right tool for this task,
- if yes what brand to buy
Appreciate comments and suggestions
