This PMF 180 E Multi Set contains the All Rounder tool, plus 13 valuable accessories that would cost much more to add to your toolbox at a later date.

Plunge cutting into wood
You can make a variety of useful cuts with the plunge cut saw blades for wood: make cutouts in door frames, or in furniture to access wall outlets. This Multi Set includes the 32x40mm wood blade, and the 32x40mm hard wood blade.

Even metal can’t stop the PMF 180 E--with the 10x20mm metal cutting blade included in this Multi Set, you can cut metal items such as protruding nails and pipes flush to the surface. You can even use the metal cutting blades to make plunge cuts into plasterboard for power sockets. You’ll be able to do this without great effort--but with the highest precision.

 The BiM Segment saw blade enables you to get into border areas that conventional machines can’t reachBiM Segment Saw Blade for use with the PMF 180 E Cutting in tight spaces
With the PMF 180 E and the Wood/Metal Segment Blade, you can trim the bottom of the door architrave skirting after laying laminate and hardwood flooring. Simply place the blade on an upturned piece of flooring, and gently cut the architrave, remove the off cut, and slide under your flooring for a perfect finish.

The BiM Segment Serrated Knife allows you to work flush to the work surface giving you precise angle cuts BiM Segment Serrated Knife allows you to work flush to the work surface giving you precise angle cuts Another cutting accessory available to purchase separately is the Segment Serrated Knife. The depressed design of this blade allows you to work flush to the work surface, enabling you to cut insulation and soft materials to fit precisely into the space required. Manufactured using BiMetal technology, the Serrated Knife Blade will give a very long serice life.

The Universal Groove cutter attachment allows for easy removal of joint-filling compoundsThe Universal Groove cutter attachment allows for easy removal of joint-filling compounds The Universal Groove Cutter attachment (sold separately) allows for easy removal of joint-filling compounds like plastics and silicone. Cutting on all three sides, and to a depth of 50mm, it is able to reach into the tightest corners with ease because of the All Rounder’s tapered body shape and the Groove Cutter’s narrow cutting tip. It can also cut common soft-insulation materials, like Flumroc.



Sawing made easy

Tiled areas in and around your home are often subject to damp, and mould can grow between the tiles, especially on tile grout. The PMF 180 E is the perfect tool for repairing this problem. Simply fit the Tungsten Carbide Riff Segment Blade included in the Set, and run this along the grout between the tiles. The grout is quickly and simple removed, ready for you to re-grout.

The PMF 180 E is extremely lightweight and handy, so you can achieve impressive results when sanding without having to apply a lot of feed pressure The PMF’s sanding attachment turns it into a powerful and reliable delta sander  The PMF’s sanding attachment turns it into a powerful and reliable delta sander Sanding: for the perfect finish

The PMF 180 E ensures perfect surfaces, because its sanding attachment turns it into a powerful and low vibration detail sander. Simply fit the Delta sanding head to sand in small, or awkward, hard-to-reach areas that other sanders can’t reach, such as in between stair banisters or on window frames. And because the PMF 180 E is extremely lightweight, you can achieve impressive results without having to apply a lot of feed pressure. What's more, clean-up is easy because the PMF 180 E has a dust extraction port for connecting to a vacuum cleaner. This Multi Set includes 6 red wood sanding sheets and the Delta sanding head.

Scrape paint, underlay, and other rough household surfaces with the scraper blade The PMF’s scraping attachment lets you remove glue, mortar and paint coatings from surfaces The PMF 180 E is also designed for scraping, even in hard-to-reach areas. The short rigid scraping accessory included in this Multi Set can help you remove glue from surfaces after carpet removal, or mortar and concrete remnants--even remove paint from glass, or stubborn stickers. You can also purchase the long flexible scraper separately.

Oscillation: the secret to the All Rounder’s success

The technical secret behind the versatility of the PMF 180 E is its oscillation principle: the accessories do not move in a circular motion, but rather oscillate at an angle of ±1.4 degrees in each direction. This oscillating movement can occur up to 20,000 times a minute, achieving safe, effective cutting.< br />

Style Name: Bosch PMF 180 E
I have owned this tool for less than a week. I am not a professional, but would say I am a fairly competent DIYer. My reason for purchasing this tool was to cut solid wood flooring in front of a fireplace opening so that a hearth could be laid. I do not know anybody who owns this tool already, so took a bit of a gamble buying it, however it was very competitively price (69.95) at a local major DIY store here in Ireland and I just happened to spot it on my weekly recce of the tools area!

My first impressions are that this is an incredibly useful tool. The fact that the blade oscillates rather than rotates means that you can work in very tight spaces. It also does not suffer from the 'grab' that say an angle grinder would. It is also a tool that requires no practice to get a very proffessional result. I made a test cut using some old skirting, then just went for it cutting a 16" x 55" recess in a very expensive wood floor! The result was perfect with the tool cutting right up to the chimney breast with no problem at all. Even the wife was impressed. I have since found several other sanding and cutting uses for it as we are in the process of refurbishing a house. The tool is very easy to control and comes with several useful accessories plus a sturdy carry case.

Pros: No experience needed, very little dust, very thin and accurate cutting, faster sanding than a standard delta sander, incredibly light and easy to control, good price

Cons: Accessories seem a little difficult to find, does not fit in carry case when the plunge cutter is fitted (this really is nit picking)

Would I buy it again? Absolutely - I don't know what I did before I had it!

After much deliberation over whether to buy the original Fein multimaster I chose this far cheaper option and have absolutely NO REGRETS whatsoever.
I have used it for flooring, removing coving, repairing badly plastered walls, detailing work, tiling and it has never let me down. The accessories in this kit would cost a fortune over the Amazon asking price and I would say represent excellent value compared to the basic option which only contains the sander pad, plunge cut and bimetal semicircular blade.

You can get the generic sanding sheets much cheaper in the pound shops and on ebay, so don't pay the extortionate prices asked for Bosch originals, as there really is no difference. The one thing I would criticise is the flimsiness of the sanding pad which utilises the velcro hook and loop fastening to hold the sanding sheet in place. I have found that when detailing the pad can easily burn through and wear down especially on the apices which you mainly use. Bosch have changed the design over the past 6months with a softer white rubber beneath the hook pad but it's still prone to burn through so be careful and keep the pressure light and the speed low when doing the detailing work.

The problem with this multi tool is it's only as good as it's spare parts. These wear out very quickly and are extremely expensive to replace.

Bosch seem to have made the decision to make more money from selling their spares, much like printer manufacturers do with cartridges.

I have owned the earlier version of this tool for many years. Whilst it only sands the velcro head has been used time and again and has really lasted well. Slight wear on the edges but you'd expect that. Unfortunately on my latest DIY job the sprindle drive to the head broke rendering the sanding head useless. Fair enough, I've had many years use out of it and tools wear out.

Having been so impressed I bought the Bosch 180e as a direct replacement. The tool body is the same, the sanding action is the same, so my sanding technique is therefore the same.

Having done one side of a 15ft room with the Bosch 180 sander head and bosch sand paper (details on skirting board and picture rails)I noticed that the sand paper was sliding around on the head. On closer inspection I found that the velcro had worn to the point that it could not grip the sand paper. Also the plastic body was breaking up where it had touched wooden surfaces in corners etc. Presumably as a manufacturer you would expect this degree of contact and therefore design for this in the product.

I can only refer back to my previous model which showed none of this wear after many years useage.

Maybe it's me but I expect sander heads to last longer than this. By my calculation I will need 4 replacement heads to fine sand one 15ft square room. At a cost of £10 per head that's 40 quid plus the sand paper.

This to me is unacceptable. So I voted with my feet and bought another brand and it's been brilliant.

As I only bought the unit in September I will now be chasing Bosch to sort this out. Hassle I frankly do not need.

Bought this to help laying laminate flooring. The grand plan was to trim skirting board - old house, old plaster, too much mess to remove skirting then replace it and we didn't want to start something we couldn't finish reasonably quickly. On reflection it was maybe a bit ambitious but probably still easier/tidier than removing it all.
It took a while with the supplied blades but once into the swing of things it worked fine. Had to get more blades as the supplied ones started to wear down although with practice and less hitting stone and nails they would last longer. Some reviews suggest they're expensive but do an internet search and you can get them at a price that I thought was fair.
It's certainly worth getting a face mask as it creates quite a bit of dust if you don't have some sort of extraction system.
Left or right handed, cutting in confined spaces? The blades change easily and can be fixed at various angles to make cutting easier.
All in all and excellent tool
