I use the black model of the HF nearly every day in my business and have had no problems what so ever. For the price,if it quits working, I wold toss it. Never buy the replacement contacts on their products. Currently using it on myBristol34 restoration "project". No concerns.

Re: Best Alternative Multi-Tool ?

Fein variable speed. I've killed many over the years but accept no substitutes. Of course the boss pays for mine, which is nice since it's about $80 for the carbide abrasive bell-housing cutoff disc I like....

Re: Best Alternative Multi-Tool ?

Have had my Fein for 4 yrs now through two different project boats. There is at least one manufacterer producing blades for the Fein that are just as durable but at half the cost. Got a pretty good bank for my buck from my old Rotozip too... they are doing more these days with the multi tool idea.

Re: Best Alternative Multi-Tool ?

Jim, As in all things in life: Quality or Price? It's your call. I have had my Fein for two years and it paid for itself on my first job. German quality and engineering. Highly recommended. Good luck and good sailing, Ron

Re: Best Alternative Multi-Tool ?

One of the best purchases I have made was my Fein.
