Dremel is not the only one making a clone of the Fein now that Fein's patent
I got this one from Harbor Freight on Black Friday:
It's not the miracle machine that Fein's TV infomercial says the concept is,
but it does work.
The tool's claim to fame is it's oscillating blade. That said, I don't see
how the quality or reputation of the tool maker can much influence the worth
of the tool. All it does is shake the bit (blade?) back and forth (Duh!).
If you can be pleased with about 70% of the claims made on the Fein TV show,
go for the Dremel, the Harbor Freight model, or one of the other clones.
Right. And the only thing a car's engine does is apply power to the
transmission which then turns the wheels. That said, I don't see how
the quality or reputation of the car maker can much influence the
worth of the car.
I hope you weren't serious.
I bought the Fein machine and so far it has performed as seen on TV. I have used
it for cutting wood, metal, tile and also for sanding. The blades are expensive
but last a long time unless you try to cut steel with the wood blade. Lesson
learned! Chuck B.
The SoniCrafter costs about $180.00.
I bought the Harbor Freight Fein clone for $39.99 a couple of weeks ago.
After watching the Rockwell advert, I went back to Harbor Freight and bought
a hammer ($2.99).
I figure I'm about $137.00 ahead.
Best of the Fein clones on the market now may be the cordless Li Ion
Bosch unit. Given the more industrial pro orientation of the Bosch
tool, it will likely be my choice if one is needed for the household
