Oscillating Tool
« on: October 29, 2019, 05:28:53 AM »
....made removing the foam rubber "blobs" between the hood skin and framework a breeze.

I spent an hour removing 5 with a chisel/razor blade/putty knife.

Then I tried the oscillating tool - all done in 10 minutes

Hope this helps someone in the future

Those things are awesome. I thought they were gimmicky until I got one. We use them all of the time for my day job. One thing to watch when buying one is the blade attachment as they all differ.  I had a porter cable and it finally burnt up. I liked the blade clamp, but you had to buy certain types. It was just a pinch that held them in place. I just replaced it with a Rockwell that I got at lowes. The blade system in it is 100% better than the PC. It screws in place with the 'wrench' built into the machine. So far it has ran flawlessly. I have a craftsman battery operated that I used maybe once or twice and cant remember how that one holds the blade, but I do remember that overall it worked pretty good.
