Default Rockwell F80 Oscillating Tool

I can't believe I never bought one of these before...

I'm repairing/replacing the transom on a boat and needed something to cut into tight spaces. Usually use a back saw, but bought this.

Holy shit! This thing is great.

I was going to buy another Rockwell, but this one is on sale at Lowe's for $99. It's their top of the line model; the ones below it are $99 and $89.

With this model you can switch between 3.4* (generally standard on these types of tools) or 5* of oscillation. What a difference the 5* makes in cutting. Went through plywood 1.5" thick like butter.

I'm almost convinced after being skeptical at first sight. Tried cutting any metal?

No, just fiberglass and plywood, but it's damn handy

I've got a Craftman version I bought to cut the sealant in the access panel of my Key West. It worked like a charm. It has been used on a variety of projects successfully (no metal though). The time and effort it saves makes it invaluable.
