Not any more!!! The multi-tool is great for making perfect, precision cuts in every material medium I come across, from hard oak cabinets to 90 year old pine lathe in homes.
Its incredibly easy to use from the first cut, and I never felt out of control or that the tool would jump. I had to get used to the vibrating and noise but thats about it.
I chose the Bosch over the Craftsman or Rigid because of the quality name that the brand carries throughout its impressive power tool line. This is my first Bosch power tool. I probably would have gone with Makita if they produced a multi-tool, as all my other power tools are Makita. The Fein tool is obviously a great tool and the originator of this kind of power tool, but its still ridiculously over priced and the blades are too. I felt that Bosch probably did their homework and for them to undercut Fein by half price just points to Fein being over priced, not Bosch being cheap.
I've used a Fein before and I can say there is no difference in the quality of the tool.
Overall, I am impressed and very happy with my purchase. Only time will tell how well it holds up, but I have no doubts that it will.
Everything about this tool has held up amazingly, EXCEPT the small teeth on the round end piece that hold the blades. I am down to 3!!! After being used by my assistants in the field, the teeth have slowly broken off to the point where it is almost unusable. I hope that I can find a replacement jaw for this and at a decent price. It's a $7 item to replace, and I consider it a wear and tear item, similar to the brushes on a cordless drill. Otherwise it is just as powerful as ever.
The only drawback, if you want to call it that, came when I first tried the included hardwood plunge cut blade. I'd never cut anything with it before and didn't realize just how quickly it could get through a piece of wood. When I felt some resistance I just kept going, only to find out I'd sheared off two nails that were buried in the lumber -- and done a number on the blade at the same time. Live and learn.
This specific model is decent overall, but has one strong negative, which I could only appreciate with time - the way one changes attachments is through a screw + washer + allen wrench combo. Oh, what a pain! Let me count the ways... it's endless. People usually think it's simply about time - but it is not! Time is only ONE negative:
1)Time consuming and a hassle to have to constantly unscrew, pull out the screw and washer and then screw it back on - the newer model that works by snapping on and off is vastly superior
2)You need to keep track of the allen wrench at all times - so easy to lose or misplace when you're working. The newer model doesn't need an allen wrench, and so you never have this problem
3)You need to keep track of the screw and the washer - and guess what - when you're working, it's so easy for it to fall... now imagine you're on a ladder and have to get down to search in the grass or wherever for the fallen screw - what a pain! This is a big, big, big problem. The newer model doesn't have a screw and washer, so there is nothing to drop, nor anything to keep track of
4)You have no idea when the screw has been tightened just enough or too much - what a hassle! I'm constantly paranoid that I'll strip the screw, so I'm afraid to tighten it too much - I can feel the motor turning as I tighten. One time I apparently didn't tighten enough, and the sander started vibrating like crazy. What a pain! The newer model snaps on and off, so there is never any guesswork involved in figuring out if it's tight enough or too tight or whatever.
Overall, it's still a good tool, and I like the selection of blades and other attachments, I just wish I had gone for the more recent model.

My only gripe is with the blade change system but I'll gladly accept it for everything this tool brings. It also helps that the OIS blade mounting system is the most widely used.
This was a good buy
I have used the porter cable multi tool in the past and they do go on sale sometimes for 100 bucks. They come with alot more accessories(around 20) than the bosch AND you don't need an allen key to change your accessories every time. I would recommend this one for the home owner or someone that occasionally uses it in the workplace.
