I still recall my amazement, years ago as I watched my Orthopedic surgeon remove a fiberglass cast from my leg using a saw with a round thin blade. She explained that because it vibrated it would cut only hard stuff, and would not puncture the skin. It worked like magic, and I have been fascinated with Oscillating Multi-Tools (OMTs) ever since.
However, I could never quite convince myself I really *needed* such a tool - mostly because I am not a professional. Boy, was I wrong.
A few months ago I decided to take the plunge and by an OMT. I spent many hours researching, reading reviews on amazon, in trade magazines, and of course watching videos on youtube. I soon narrowed down my list of contenders to the brands of pro-quality tools that I already have good experiences with: Bosch, Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee, Fein. As another reviewer explained in Tools of The Trade magazine, these brands are all capable tools - but there are differences that, depending on one’s needs, make some more suitable than others.
In my tools I tend to favor ergonomics, low-noise, low-vibration and accuracy. This reduced my list of candidates to just Bosch and Fein. At this point I made up a checklist comparing the two (below). It’s very difficult to say which is the better tool. Each has it’s strengths. If you are on the fence, hopefully the information below will help you decide which of these tools will suit you best.
Bosch MX30 versus Fein MM 350Q:
Weight: Fein 3.1 pounds, Bosch at 3.7 pounds.
Warranty: Fein 3 year, Bosch 1 year.
Cord Length: Fein 16 feet, Bosch 13 feet.
Oscillating Angle Degrees (single/total): Fein (1.7 / 3.2), Bosch (1.4 / 2.8)
Tool-less blade change: Fein (yes), Bosch (Yes!) Bosch is better - no bolt required.
Noise Level dB at 2’: Fein (72-80), Bosch (68-84)
Tool Positions: Fein (8, 45 degree increments), Bosch (12, 30 degree increments)
Tool Compatibility: Fein (Fein & All Bosch Blades), Bosch (Bosch, a few Fein blades)
Vibration: Fein has less vibration than Bosch
Power: Fein (3.6 amps), Bosch (3.0 amps)
Oscillations Per Minute: Fein (10,000-19,500), Bosch (8,000-20,000)
Variety of attachments: Fein wins with many cool attachments that do not fit the Bosch.
Constant Speed Circuitry: Fein (yes), Bosch (yes)
Change pad without removing sandpaper: Fein (no), Bosch (yes) Bosch wins this one.
Bench Mounting: Fein (yes), Bosch (maybe?)
I was initially drawn to the Bosch due to it’s apparently superior blade change mechanism. I was concerned that the Fein mechanism, with it’s removable bolt, would be cumbersome and irritating to use. However, I came across an excellent series of videos by Jon Eakes, sponsored by FeinCanada which changed my thinking. I watched experienced Fein users swap blades quickly, and rotate them with little effort. Also, the bolt has the potential to exert a stronger grip on the tool, although I have not heard of any complaints with the Bosch. I highly recommend you take a look at Jon Eakes series of videos no matter what OMT you decide to purchase - it shows the proper techniques for avoiding many common problems. It also will open your eyes to the unique jobs that only an OMT can do. (Not all of his videos are on youtube, do a google search and go to his own website for the full set.)
 Noise level - most folks run the tool at top speed much of the time, so its the highest noise level that matters most, making Fein the winner of this category. Fein publishes their noise level data, but Bosch does not, so I used a test performed by a youtube video review using the same meter at the same distance (thanks to Tool Craze for this). Note that every dB matters.
 Tool Positions. If quantity is important, then Bosch wins with 12 positions, spaced every 30 degrees (0, 30, 60, 90, …). Fein has 8 positions, spaced every 45 degrees (0, 45, 90, …).
 The Fein blades attach to a 4 position cross on the tool, the Fein blades have 8 slots with the net effect Fein blades can be mounted in 45 degree increments. Most Bosch blades have a cross that allows mounting directly to the Fein, but it only allows rotation in 90 degree increments. Using the OIS001 adapter any Bosch blade can be mounted on the Fein, in 30 degree increments. Many of the most unique and interesting Fein blades will not mount on the Bosch. Fein wins this category with the ability to mount the widest variety of blades.
You can purchase the Bosch OIS001 adapter here on amazon for a few dollars.
 Vibration. Fein publishes it’s vibration data but as usual, Bosch does not. Numerous reviews I’ve read indicate the Fein has significantly less vibration than Bosch. I haven’t used the Bosch, but I can tell you the Fein so smooth it still makes me smile inside every time I turn it on.
 Power. Assuming motors and drive systems are equally efficient, the one that consumes the most amps will provide the most power. This implies the Fein is about 20% more powerful than the Bosch, all other things being equal.
 Oscillations per Minute. Even though the Fein is a tiny bit slower than the Bosch (2.5%), it swings though a greater angle (21%), which more than compensates.
 Bench Mounting. Fein sells a Table and Drill Stand Support (part# 9-26-02-083-01-0 available on amazon). I have found nothing comparable for the Bosch. Even better, the Fein has two bolt holes built into the MM 350Q which makes it easy to make your own mounting stand. I made a quick prototype from a 1/2” x 1/2” x 4” piece of wood that fastens to the 350Q using (2) M6 screws, spaced 7/8” apart. It took but a few minutes, and allows me to mount the Fein in my bench vise. I’ll post a photo with the measurements.
I should qualify this by saying that I have not used other oscillating multi-tools. I saw this kit at a reasonable price and leapt at the deal. I have purchased too many bargain tools in my lifetime, only to be disappointed by their imprecise performance or lack of durability. This tool is easy to use, incredibly versatile, and surprisingly capable. I am installing a new kitchen in my home and doing some related renovations, and this tool has been indispensable to this project. I have used it to cut expansion gaps, cut in outlets at the backs of cabinets, do finish sanding for stained wood, strip paint from brick, cut hardwood floor, and clean off construction adhesive.
Aside from making jobs faster and easier, this tool has helped me solve problems in minutes that could have easily dragged on for hours or days. As an example, when installing a granite composite sink under a granite countertop, there was too much material to attach one of the plumbing fixtures. I was able to use a carbide grit rasp to grind off some of the material on the back of the underside of the sink -- problem solved. I know of no other tool that could have gotten that job done in so little space.
Bottom line, I don't know how I got by so long without one of these. This is a great tool.
Because I burned out 2 cheaper models before this purchase, I wish I would have made the upgrade sooner, as it would have saved me much frustration trying to make a tool work, instead of the tool working for me.
Thank you Fein for a well made product, I would purchase again, and have nothing negative to say.

It works great and it sounds like a small kitchen mixer.
I was a little concerned I bought more tool than I needed but I have no regrets
