More information at: selbst ist der Mann, issue 1/2011 Absolute nail-biter 10 oscillating tools - including 3 battery powered devices - had to prove their versatility. The top dog was able to defend its leading position, but the competition has gotten stronger. In test: 10 multifunctional devices were tested, 7 of which can be connected to mains power with the other 3 being equipped with a battery.

More information at: selber machen, issue 2/2010 Four for every scenario If it has to be tight and precise, then oscillating multitools can really show what they’re capable of. Whether it be grinding, rasping, sawing or shaving - everything is possible. Professionals have been using these devices for many years, but now they are available in your average hardware store. We sent four models to our test laboratory. Four multitools players were reviewed. They were rated 2 x “good” and 2 x “satisfactory”. Among the test criteria were practical test (grinding, cutting, sawing), handling (user manual, ease of use of the operating elements, manageability ...) and technical examination (vibration in handle, warming in grip area, load test ...).

But are they really so universal? And does a Dremel fulfil one’s expectations? Six electronic multitools were tested, receiving ratings of 2 x “good”, 3 x “satisfactory” and 1 x “acceptable”.

Most electric multifunction tools cover pretty much all the basic work for DIY: From grinding or tile cutting to drilling. They are cheaper than the individual devices and take up less space. A disadvantage, however, is the forced compromise between performance and functionality.
