My concerns about the price were gone after I tried the unit. After a few weeks of staring at this new tool on my work bench, I was finally able to use it for some detailed cutouts on my home's 3 entrance doors for installing some security locks and wrap around plates. BTW: These wrap around plates have to fit perfectly snug, or they will wobble and the door won't close properly so was looking forward to the Sonicrafter's precision cutting abilities which did not disappoint.
About the battery life:
I got about 10 minutes at the highest speed per battery which is probably the max of what anyone should use this tool for on one continuous cut. I made sure to let the tool do the work and tried not apply too much pressure. With these tools, very long cuts risk wearing out the cutting bits early due to overheating and these blades are not cheap.
About the attachments:
Some folks have reported attachments coming loose and this was not the case for me. I applied firm pressure to attach the bits when seating the hex locking screw, but not too much to break anything. Nothing came loose after going through three battery charges and 10 blade changes.
About the front light:
The light position seems well thought out until you realize many useful cutting positions are at angles where the light is not able to shine. The light should sweep around the whole front of the unit instead of just being a small beam forward.Read more ›
however it comes with a lot of the blades and accessories which is nice, in fact if you bought the harbor freight cordless oscillating tool and then as many blades as this comes with, it would end up costing a bit over what this one costs, and this performs much better than the HF one, i bought one and returned it.
the tool its self is pretty useful, i have primarily used it for the removal of undercoating on cars i am restoring, it makes that horrid job a whole lot less horrid, and the led is nice for that job as well as i do not have the fortune of working with a rotisserie, and just have the cars up on jack stands. it saves me dragging a warm light under there, i like the undercoating as cold as possible, then it just chips off once you get it thin enough.
battery performance is good, with me using it constantly and pushing on it hard the whole time it last about 30-40 minutes, which is usually exactly what the bats charge in, so having the 2 and rotating is nice.
for my uses a corded one would probably work better, but i wanted a portable one in case i wanted to take to pic n pull and so on to cut patch panels.
it actually does a fairly decent job of cutting through sheet metal with the blade it comes with. the blade seems to hold up decently, i used it to cut older volvo sheet metal and it exceeded my expectations, but they were not all that high :)
as a note, in my experience volvo sheetmetal (volvo 240 in this case) eats cut off wheels, sanding pads,and so on faster than everything else i have worked with.Read more ›
