All the oscillating tools you need in one place

Oscillating tools come in a range of different speeds, power, and levels of durability. In addition, they have plenty of different features, such as:

  • Vibration dampening
  • Brushless operation
  • Easy-grip handles
  • Quick-change
  • Speed selector
  • Plus, many more

These are the things to consider when buying a tool, because you want to make sure it can handle all of the tasks you need it for. The great thing is, it’s a multi-purpose tool that can handle a range of different functions. Simply switch out the attachment, and you’ve got the Swiss army knife of power tools at your disposal.

Handheld convenience

While an oscillating tool might not be great for huge jobs, they are certainly handy in a range of different applications. Depending on your needs, you can buy oscillating tools that are cordless, or ones that use a cord. Due to the smaller size of the tool and the convenience offered by being handheld, most people choose a cordless variety so they can take it anywhere. 

Whether you work out on the road, at different locations, or you simply don’t want to be tripping over a cord everywhere you go, a battery-operated handheld device is perfect for all of those tricky jobs. In fact, you can’t even use larger tools such as sanders and grinders for more intricate work, such as making hanging picture frames or sanding wooden bookends. They’re just too big and bulky, and you risk damaging the project. Handheld oscillating tools give you the convenience to work safely in any setting.

Different types of oscillating tools

There are plenty of attachments you can use with an oscillating tool. When you buy an oscillating tool, it should come with several attachments for different functions. These usually include:

  • Sanding
  • Grinding
  • Cutting
  • Scraping
  • Polishing

When purchasing, always check what’s included. Some packs may come with limited attachments and accessories, meaning you’ll need to source them separately. Many oscillating tools are compatible with attachments from other brands, but if this is a feature you need, it pays to research the product first.
