Whether you're a professional woodworker or an avid do-it-yourselfer, the RK5101K is an effective way to streamline your work. Easily carried in its compact, lightweight bag, the kit can be kept at your fingertips for all your remodeling, installation, and repair projects.
Starting with the basics, this 37-piece multipurpose kit comes with a variable speed tool and includes two cutting blades, a carbide grit blade, a sanding pad, and 30 sanding sheets that help you cut, remove grout, and sand, with professional-grade results. It also includes a tough, broad-spectrum scraper and a hex key.
Sprucing up the garage? Utilize the scraper attachment to remove paint, old caulking, and rust. Remodeling the bathroom? Remove grout with the kit's carbide grit blade and score ceramic tiling for shaping with the optional diamond grit blade. Exposing hardwood? Remove carpeting using the broad spectrum scraping blade then let the sanding system take over to polish those hard-to-reach spaces.
High-Frequency Oscillation for Smooth, Safe Precision
For the safest and most accurate work, the RK5101K features super high-frequency microsonic oscillation technology. This means that instead of rotating, it makes up to 20,000 back-and-forth oscillations per minute for ultra smooth, efficient results. Because there are no fast-spinning parts or alternating blades, there are no threats of kickback.
Thanks to its advanced design, the RK5101K cuts only hard materials when fitted with a blade attachment. This way, the tool easily cuts heavy-duty materials, while keeping the user's hands and fingers safe.
The RK5101K can cut wood, thin metals, fiberglass, masonry, plastic, carpet, flooring, cement board, and even vinyl siding.
High Sanding Capacity with Low Dust Levels
For sanding jobs, this tool requires very little downward pressure and delivers great accuracy. And its slim body enhances your sanding capabilities, allowing you to work on edging and corners that are often not possible to reach with other tools. Plus, it affords you quick and easy clean-up, throwing a very low level of dust whether you're sanding, cutting, or scraping.
Easy Handling with Lightweight Frame and Soft Grip
The RK5101K has magnesium alloy gear housing, making it lightweight enough for extended use and rugged enough for long-term durability. The soft, ergonomic grip offers you optimum comfort and control while you tackle the job at hand.

The $100 Dremel is lighter and a bit smaller but the buzz the motor makes compared to the Rockwell motor [a little bit heavier and slightly bigger] which humms smoothly is like comparing a Vespa scooter to a Victory street bike.
Since the basic Rockwell is only $20 more than the Dremel and the extra blades are about the same price, there was no question about going for the quality/durability of a Rockwell.
The only convenience problem that I can foresee is getting replacement blades:
Dremel is carried by big box hardware stores; hobbyists who do crafts on the spur of the moment and do not need to rip open walls, will appreciate the around-the-corner convenience.
Rockwell is carried by speciality woodworking stores or the internet; the Home Proj. kind of guys have to plan ahead before ripping into a wall for remodeling. So ordering parts in advance should be a no brainer.
I also really liked the Rockwell case, it is created with niches and screw-downs to hold lots of blades/attachments in place.
I looked at the Bosch 12v battery operated version, and that would have been a good choice but I do not want to have numerous 18v tool systems and chargers for the various power hand tools that I use. I read that the Bosch delivers 20 min of battery power and I might need more time than that between charges.
All four tools mentioned above have variable speeds pretty much the same: 10,000 - 21,000 opm.Read more ›
This is a solid tool. I love working with tools and I own a lot of professional quality tools. I put this in the same class as my Bosch, Dewalt, Porter Cable, Rigid, and Makita tools.
For $208 I got this kit and a diamond segment saw, a carbide triangle saw, and a blade cleaner. The tool and add on accessories cost less than half as much as those from Fein.
I immediately went to work taking out thinset from an old tile job, probably 1/4 inch trowelled. I had tried hammer and chisel and hated that. I bought an angle grinder which worked but threw dust everywhere. That lasted about one minute before I had to quit because of the dust. Then I threw a rug over it. That was a couple of years ago.
This Sonicrafter with the diamond segment saw is the right tool for the job. It is powerful enough. I used it for an hour, it did not overheat or bog down. The blade shows no signs of wear. The blade never came loose. It did not throw dust everywhere. After an hour my hand was tired. Operating this tool feels very much like operating a random orbital sander. The gentle vibration over time is fatiguing.
Get a variable speed model; the least expensive kit is not variable speed. The harder the material you work on, the higher the speed needs to be set.Read more ›
I have not had a problem with blades loosening or the tool getting real hot like in other reviews. If you go slow and let the tool do the work it works fine. It's not a Sawsall, use it for the finer work. Its not real speedy at cutting harder woods and if your blade is dull it will burn in woods like oak and maple.
I suggest stocking up on blades because I have only found them online. Just like a sawsall blade, they dont last very long, save your dull blades for cutting sheet rock and keep your sharp blades for wood cutting.
As a serious DIY guy I am happy with the sonicrafter and glad I saved the money over buying the fein MM tool.
