Has anyone used a Fein Multimaster tool with either a diamond or carbide
blade to remove grout? I have a number of bathrooms that I need to
re-grout, and don't want to spend hours removing the old grout. Will the
diamond blade fit between the narrow space between bathroom
wall-tile....it's pretty narrow. Any sharing of experience with this tool
will be appreciated. Thanx in advance.
I've used one borrowed from a friend, but not for grout. The
friend has done grout with it and says if works real well. His
grout line were about 5/16" - 3/8" wide, so thickness of the
cutter was not a problem. BTW, I used the tool with a toothed
scapper to actually cut through wood. It got into tight places
with no problem. No other tool would have worked. When the
teeth wear off, we used a MotoTool with a thin cutoff wheel to
put in new teeth .... worked good and a whole lot cheaper than a
new blade. My only comment is that it is REALLY only a
"triangle detail sander." Fein gets off charging big bucks
because of all the different cutters/attachments, for which they
also charge an arm and a leg. But I must say, it's a nice tool.
Yes, it will remove grout in a very controlled manner. The carbide
blades are fairly thick when new. They do get thinner when used. The
diamond blades are thinner.
If you need me to I can measure the thickness of the diamond and carbide
I have the Multimaster. I have all thicknesses of grout in my home
and the diamond and carbide blades will be too thick for some of the
joints. For the thin ones I will use my Makita cordless grinder that
will accept the Makita wet-dry 3 1/4" diamond grinding wheel. The
wheel is about 1/32" in thickness and is one of my most favorite
items. Between the Multimaster and the Makita you have all bases
