5.0 out of 5 stars More than the sum of its parts, 17 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Bosch PMF 190 E Multifunctional Allrounder Set: Oscillating Multi-Tool with 13 Accessories (DIY & Tools)
I was initially a little sceptical about the usefulness of this, but then Amazon threw a slight wobby and offered it to me for a price I couldn't refuse. Duly grabbed and briefly tested, it sat in the garage forlornly eyeing up the wood piled in a corner.

Until last week when we finally got around to using a _lot_ of that wood to build a chicken run deluxe. This tool has been invaluable during the build in many ways. I am a wood n00b and stuck the uprights in postcrete before thinking about how to do the cross pieces, yet the plunge cutter allowed me to do very passable mortice and tenon joints with everything in situ. My missus, who actually went on a woodworking course and makes nice things (albeit very slowly) says that are pretty good, and whilst it could have been done the old way with a chisel we'd still be there now not getting it right if we'd gone that route.

Similarly, chopping the tops of the uprights off flush with the top rail is a piece of cake. I tried a manual saw and even a proper electric saw, but the one didn't cut where I pointed it and the other threatenend to shake everything apart.

The main trick I found to getting things neat is to have the plunge cutter set at right angles to the handle rather than the (to me) obvious in-line position - the handle is then easier to hold square to the job, and the cutter goes in square. As far as I can tell, that's the only real skill needed with this!
