Review: Fein Starlock Oscillating Multi Tools

 

 

 

 

 

Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool 

There are certain tools we expect to be the best in their categories.  We have the Sawzall from Milwaukee.  Wormdrive saws from Skilsaw.  Often these tools are from the company that invented the category.  For Fein Oscillating Multi-Tools that honor unquestionably goes to Fein for their Oscillating Multi-Tool.

  They came out with the first version in Germany in 1964. It was the only one back then. The world took awhile to realize what an outstanding tool it was. 

  I never saw one until the early 90’s. Honestly I wasn’t very impressed at  the time.  I’m pretty sure the blade was dull and it just didn’t do much but make noise and burn wood.  I actually dismissed it as something I would probably never use. 

  Its good to be wrong sometimes. I found out just how wrong I was when I finally tried one with a sharp blade. It was on a job with a fellow restoration contractor. We were in competition but would collaborate on jobs from time to time. We were cutting water damaged drywall out. I had never cut it out so fast and effortlessly!  It was clear, I had to get one after that. I have had several units from nearly every manufacturer both cordless and corded.  They all do the job to some degree.

  I always want the best tool for each application. Even though they cost more they make the job go faster and easier.  I feel they are a worthwhile investment. The best tools are more pleasing to use and are often more comfortable and ergonomic.  In the world of oscillating multi-tools there is nothing “Feiner” than Fein Starlock tools. 

  Fein had a long head start compared to every other tool manufacturer. They never stopped developing their Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool’s all those years they held the patent. 

  Even though I kept trying other tools to stay within a cordless platform or because a new model claimed superior performance, I keep going back to Fein. 

  A few years ago Fein entered a partnership with Robert Bosch Tool Corporation to develop a new tool free blade interface system. It was to be both tool free and have no removable pin like so many systems on the market do. After many ideas the design was released as Starlock, A 3D interface which was a vast improvement over all systems before it. 

  Instead of using tiny holes and pins which can break, it uses a star shaped cup with tapered sides and a center lock. The tapered sides mean a secure purchase for the blade throughout its entire life. As blades wear on older systems the attachment point of the pins and holes get bigger and slop gets worse. I have seen several pins break over the years.  With the starlock design the blade stays tight in the tapered cup. This allows for full transfer of energy from the tool to the workpiece. 

  That is all great on paper but how does it really work on the job? I am pleased to say that it takes a useful tool and turbo charges it. I regularly use the Starlock tools for things I never would have dreamed of doing before.  I used to use Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool’s only for cutting drywall, door shims and undercutting door trim when installing flooring. 

  Now I use them for so much more. Cutting subfloor out of entire kitchens and bathrooms.  I use them in remodeling in many places I used to use recip saws for. In fact nowadays I use my Fein starlock tools more than reciprocating saws. Who would have dreamed such a thing would be possible? 

  There are three tiers of Starlock tools offered by Fein. The tools are all offered in both cordless and corded. This allows most any user to balance needs with their budget

  Starting with the entry level MultiTalent tools it is plain to see that no matter what level Fein is offering the quality will always be great.  The mid level offered is called MultiMaster. The top level is called SuperCut. 

MultiTalent

12v MultiTalent shares the decoupled head design of the higher end models for smoother operation

  These entry level tools compete very well with competitors offerings and even outperform most on the market.  The corded has a solid design with a 250 watt motor. It has plenty of power for anything we need to get done with a Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool. 

  The cordless multi talent uses a compact 12v battery and an efficient brushed motor to provide similar performance to corded. It outperforms ALL 12v and many 18v cordless tools on the market!  It uses 2.5AH batteries for light weight and easy handling. It would be nice to see the option of 5.0 or larger batteries for extended run times.  

   Interestingly the 12v tool  improves on the corded multi talent in the design. If you look closely you will see the oscillating head is decoupled from the motor housing with soft rubber vibration dampeners. This allows the head to move independently from the motor and handle. The end result is smoother extended operation and comfort for you.

   MultiMaster

   This is a significant step up in performance.  The corded Multimaster has a 350 watt motor and the newer decoupled head design. This is the smoothest oscillating multi tool I have ever used.  If I am doing extended cutting this is the one I want in my hands. It is noticeably smoother than any competing Fein Oscillating Multi Tool’s I have worked with. The power difference is also noticeable. Cuts are faster and more effortless.  The word butter keeps coming to mind when using it. The variable speed dial is easy to use and stays put.

  The cordless 18v MultiMaster is just under  the performance of the corded model.  It is almost as smooth and powerful as the corded. The power and speed seem pretty comparable  in normal use.  Although for extended use the corded will dominate with unlimited runtime.  When you  push it hard you will be rewarded with solid performance. I have had fewer stall outs compared  to competitors tools especially with 5.0 batteries. The 2.5 are really nice and light. Ideally you would have both.

SuperCut

  Finally we come to the STAR of the Starlock line! The SuperCut!! This is not the first SuperCut.  There was a previous version and it was the most potent Oscillating Multi Tool at the time. This new version is improved in every way. Power Speed and smoothness. Add to that the Starlock interface and you have a world beater. 

  My favorite is the cordless version. It’s not quite as powerful and smooth as the corded but the freedom makes up for it. The 18v SuperCut has exceeded all of my expectations for the last 2 years. It truly changed my whole mindset toward Fein Oscillating Multi-Tool. 

 

  My favorite place to use the Fein SuperCut is in kitchen and bath remodels.  Removing countertops and cabinets is so much easier with one. They are so handy for removing unwanted whatever from the structure. The Fein SuperCut also makes trimming parts of cabinets a breeze. It even does a nicer job of cutting outlet openings than a circular or jigsaw. 

  I love cutting out subfloor with the Fein SuperCut.  It is so much nicer than a toe kick saw it isn’t even funny.  The task I used to dread is now fun. It is so incredible the get into the sweet spot of the power-band and cruise through 3/4” subfloor like its butter. I seriously can’t cut it out any faster with my Crain corded toe kick saw or my Milwaukee Super Sawzall. 

   You may have seen some of my tool fights on Instagram or Facebook showing the power of the Supercut.  It is so fast that I have been accused repeatedly of cheating with the cuts. People say I precut the material before making a final pass with the SuperCut. Some have said I sped the videos up.  Those who haven’t experienced the power of the SuperCut don’t understand how great it is compared to run of the mill tools from the bigger tool companies. 

  If you step up to the corded version you will get even more power and less vibration.  It is probably a more practical tool for extended cutting. It is smoother than the cordless models but not quite as smooth as the MultiMaster.  In addition to a 450 watt motor you get the Starlock Max interface which uses ALL Starlock blades. Some of the heaviest duty blades are only available in Starlock Max. They may be longer and more aggressive than the Starlock and Starlock plus tools can handle. 

  Regardless of your situation and budget you should be able to find a Starlock tool to fit your needs. They are available bare tool or in kit form with accessories and batteries.

    I need to upgrade from the OMT I have to a star lock product. My current OMT has too much vibration and annoying blade changes that need an Alan wrench to tighten the blade. Thanks for the review.

    I love how you explained everything on the video. I went from a harbor freight multitool to a dewalt and didn’t see much of a performance change until I went to rigid. I’ve only heard how fein and hilti are unbeatable when it comes down to everything at all. Not only would I use this tools daily. I’d love to see the company go in a little more with tools and options s. But when you this good. I cant complain

    Great write up and videos demonstrating its stregth on Instagram. Sounds like a great tool but a little too rich in price for my tool bag. I wish they were priced a little more reasonably so I could replace my dead OMT with one.

    I started with Ridgid and then started buying milwaukee and even then I eventually bought the corded Fein multi-master. And it is absolutely true the stuff you said about it’s performance, nothing is as powerful and smooth as that multi tool!!! I love Fein and they make an amazing product! Hope I win cuz I would love to have another one as I use it almost every day!

    Would really love to have one to replace my porter cable cordless oscillating tool. As a finish carpenter I am constantly cutting back trim, door jams for flooring installs and a million other things. Recently I have been converting some storage units with larger overhead doors. The inside walls are 1/2”plywood and I do the last 6” of cutting (that my circular can’t reach) with my multitool. This would be a game changer for me!

    I’ve used several brands of multi tools over the years. We have 12 and 18 volt Milwaukee, Bosch 12 volt and a corded Porter Cable. They all work well but I have read the reviews and I think the Fein is the best. I’d love to try it out.

    I’ve used several brands of oscillating tools over the years and Fein’s multitool took the cake for me. I use the multitool from cabinetry to decking. I use it for cutting, sanding and scraping. One of my most used tools during work. We dubbed it the crazy tool because the amount of things this tool can do is crazy! I would love to finally add the Fein tool to the arsenal!

    Oh man oh man! I’d love to get my hands on one of these bad boys! Multi use is always a plus and using the supercut tool to cut outlet holes with ease is something I been needing to do some drywall work and some wood trimming. And it really is a bummer that the cordless ones are usually a little weaker but like u said the freedom of movement totally makes up for it.

    After reading your review about these Fien tools I would love to get a MultiMaster or SuperCut 18v cordless model. The freedim of cordless would be fantastic. I have a few reno jobs coming up including my own house where I have to remove a bad tile job on my concrete exterior deck. The previous owner started removing the tile and just stopped because of the rugged finish of the concrete. Plus they installed an interior smooth tile. The Fein tool would make my jobs and projects easier and more efficient.

    I’ve used my boss’s fein star lock multiple time s and have nothing but good things to say about the tool. I would use this thing to further my career and get more money. I’m a 21 year old carpenter that has been in the trade full time for 4 and a half years now and the work that I do has been made easier by the Fein multi master. To trimming door casings to sanding coffered ceilings or just cutting that pesky 2x that you cant quite reach with the sawzall. I swear by that tool and reccomend it to anyone in the trades.

    I’m super impressed with the star lock hold. It’s such an improvement. I’m glad Bosch is doing it too. I pretend they don’t exist when I need to use my makita which is a solid tool but nothing like the Fein or Bosch for that matter. I stuck to Makita because it was more affordable for me at the time. I’ve sold my Fein but I mis the precision of blade movement every time I use it.

    I’d love to have this Fein thang! I’m an electrician so it will mostly be used for cutting out for old work and junction boxes. They’re not always wanted in the easiest spots so the Multimaster will make my life easier. The Starlock and newer blade varieties will help me tackle concrete and metal obstacles. Whoever gets this win will be getting a hell of a tool!

    I remember seeing infomercials on Fein as a little kid and even then always wanting one because you can cut things and not slice your hand open with an oscillating tool. Now doing service plumbing I use a different brand multi tool and im not satisfied with the blade changing system, screw holds the blade in like a grinder does. It takes up time especially when the screw gets build up on it, can be a pain to change blades. Then the power is also something I’d want improvement on, Fein is the one that does it. Ive borrowed them but never owned one and id love to own one.

    Have been waiting for one of the big 3 to make a cordless that competes with Fein, but it hasn’t happened. I need to get one of these for all sorts of remodeling tasks. Cutting outlets in cabinet backs, replacing parts of exterior trim, trimming door jambs for hardwood and tile jobs, the list is only as endless as my imagination.

    Adding a multimaster to my tool box would be a huge bonus these days! I’ve recently taken the plunge and have started to venture out on my own working as a woodworker for the first time. I’ve been lucky enough to have worked for a few great companies where I was able to hone my skills and learn from so many talented people. Being on my own means buying tools and balancing when and where to spend my hard earned money. While Fein is undoubtably the best and as much as it would be a great addition to my one man team, I’d love the chance to win one! My last job was refinishing some 100 year old oak doors from the university of Buffalo and this would have been great to help me sand some of the detail areas. If I win I’ll be sure to post some pics of it in action!

    Great review Paul. I remember the days when I told myself that I didn’t need one…”who has to undercut that many doors to justify the expense?”…now I can’t imagine working without one. It seems like a good time to cut the cord and do it with Fein, the big brands just aren’t at the same level yet.

    This would be great for undercutting jambs when doing flooring work. When doing more than just one room, the number of jambs add up and this tool will make money quick!

    Very well written review with so much valuable information.

    I’m planning to install laminate flooring at my house and from your review it seems like this would be best tool to undercut door jams. I would also like to try this tool with a different blade to flush pocket hole plugs as I use dowels to plug pocket holes and right now with flush cut saw it takes too long and most of the time I cut myself .

    I would use it for everything as I have just about wore out my Milwaukee 18v cordless. I use it for so many things it’s hard to nail it down to just one. I used to have a fein corded and now seeing the star lock it’s obviously a whole different machine

    Hey. I recently got into woodworking with my wife and we built a table as our first project but it didnt come out so well because of a lack of tools. I know this giveaway would help and if you or anybody has any tools they are willing to donate please let me know. I’m in Miami and my Instagram is _daitony_

    I’ve been looking hard at OMTs since getting in to the Bosch 18v platform. I think Fein has always had solid products. The possibilities are endless with OMTs. Definitely willing to give Fein a try!

    From my experience Fein had the best in this category 20 years before anyone else was making them, it’s not really a surprise that they are still making a great tool.

    Wow, I mean I’ve seen one of the first models in action by an electrician. But this new mod seems to walk all over that one. Cant wait to get my hands on one for our remodel of a 100 year old home. The nails they used then are pretty tough. And well I have old machinery that occasionally need a bolt removed and i can see this as a go to tool. @53wilsonred

    We have a fein multimaster at work that’s atleast 10years old. Still runs like a champ even if it is loud as hell lol. I would use one of these to get me out of every crappy situation that happens 20 times a day when you’re a carpenter. @mikebuildstuff

    Fein is definitely top when it comes to omt’s. I’ve seen lots of videos on here but that thing cut like butter in your latest video. Fein isn’t cheap but I think they’re worth the money. I’m closing on a house tomorrow and this omt will come in handy for a lot of the work that the house needs. @[email protected]

    Fein is top. I have a Bosch omt but it’s no starlock. I’ve seen plenty of reviews and videos on here of fein omt’s and I believe they are well worth the money. I’m closing on a house tomorrow and have lots of projects in mind, the majority of those will definitely involve a omt. My Instagram is @SeanAnderson966

    Been wanting to upgrade to a starlock for awhile, preferably the fein. I’m a multi tradesman so I would use it for more things than you can imagine. I have the Ridgid one with the detachable heads but it’s not ver good for most things. Instagram name: maximum_overdrive_engaged

    Excellent write up. I had a similar appreciation curve when it came to OMTs. Once I finally bought one I couldn’t believe I waited so long. I’ve used a bosch starlock a couple of times and it blows away my cordless Makita or any other OMT I’ve tried. Would love to try the Fein out

    My pops has the corded multimaster, and it’s a fantastic tool. I love using it. Since I’ve invested a lot in the Milwaukee cordless tool line I purchased the Milwaukee cordless OMT. What a bummer that thing is to use. It’s pretty obvious that it was kind of an afterthought design because it’s miserable to use and so underpowered. I have a corded Rockwell sonicrafter and it’s not bad but it’s no comparison to the smoothness of the multimaster. The Supercut looks like a whole nother level compared to the old multimaster.

    I’ve used Fein supercut tools for years. Started out with the fein supercut cord model which I still have and have bought two corded and now I have two 18v cordless models. We use them for just about everything in the tile world that you could use a supercut for. Especially a lot of grout removal on repair jobs. I could really use a new model thou, one of my corded models finally died and is beyond repair Can you help a guy out with a a new Fein Tool? Glad to send pics of my Fein tool family if you’d like ! 👍🏻 @eleganttileandmarbleco

    My dad has a corded version he got used and man that thing was amazing! Seeing this corded version. Aside from cutting the cord I could use his for cuts on prefab for granite installs, flooring, facia, crown and baseboard. And stuff I prob wouldn’t of thought I could with others.

    Love the Multimaster. I used to live in Long Island and my old boss had the battery multi master. Unfortunately i got used to just grabbing it and going but i recently moved down to Naples, Florida and after starting my own thing down here, I have to start my own collection. Every day sometimes multiple times a day, I run down to the trailer and grab someone else multi tool that has been…well…abused to stay the least. Would love to get my hands (and my hands only) on one of my own

      Excellent write up, we use the yellow oscillating tool on our crew. The freedom of cordless is great. But the tool itself is a bit of a brute. Another carpenter working alongside us last job had a corded fein. Man what a difference, just a quality tool and perfect for finite work unlike ours. Would love the opportunity to add one to our arsenal. I feel it could really add to our quality work, and relieve some anxiety when using the yellow one on prefinished materials!!

      This review is awesome! It’s hard shopping around for other tool brands that aren’t normally in the big name hardware stores, so Toolpig always comes out with the best reviews in detail to help with these decisions. When doing jobs that need a good multitool I feel the ones I’ve had just get the job done but at times feel it can go a lot smoother with more power and speed and the breakdown in details with these options I feel it would be what I’m missing in a multitool.

      Great read about awesome tools. I have used an older model fein tool and other brands of oscillating tools. I do lots of renovations, and I think they are very much an essential tool now a days. It’s pretty amazing that they are able to make these cordless now.

    I absolutely need this, I’ve always wanted a fein since I was a teenager, seeing all the infomercials about them back then years ago.
    I ended getting the red and black one and it did well for a few years but this looks like it has 10x the power and that’s why I need this, my other burnt out while demoing a basement and it just didn’t have the guts needed for plumbing applications other than light duty. This would make my life easier. Fein makes incredible tools and id be more than happy with this.
