    I was the same as you mate, I never felt the need for a multi tool.

    18 months ago I bought (what I thought) was a crappy 15 quid Ryhas (sp) multi tool off flea Bay. Came with about 20 accessories.

    I've used it no end of times and the bugger won't die! Have put 1 new blade on the circular one and one plunge blade in all that time.

    I will upgrade when this dies but it's been brilliant! Floorboards, steel conduit, wood, it hasn't skipped a beat and it's been battered. Only downside is it's not 110v.

    If interested I'll get you the link.

    The thing to remember with multi tools is that whatever you are cutting needs to be secure as they oscillate. If it's loose all it does is bounce everything around and you get nowhere. I think this is why some people hate them as they don't get how to use them.

    Can't recommend these enough. I've had a set for 12 months roughly and they are brilliant. Have the 15mm and 22mm. They also do a ratchet cutter for tight spaces.

    Talking of Nerrad, get a Nerrad-versa-funnel it is so bloody useful! I thought it was a gimmick but it saves PCBs, carpets, acts as a bowl. Top tip # 3

    Oh and I have no affiliation with any of these I'm just an engineer that likes things that work and makes my day easier.

    Hi Jon and welcome to the forums....yes that would be helpful probably do me for the time being just for bits and pieces around the house..great when you get a review from someone who has tried it out...have looked at a few but doesn't really justify the money for the use it would get from me....regards Turnpin:)

    New 18volt brushless grinder. Burnt the old carbon brushed one out on Saturday. It actually melted the carbon rushes into the body! Mind you it had a hard life.
    The new brushless one is amazing.

    Rothenberger waste pipe cutting set, although you need a grip like a boaconstrictor to turn the things.
