Default Soni Crafter by ROCKWELL

Well it would look like Fein (MultiMaster tool) has some market share competition......SoniCrafter by ROCKWELL.

I know a number of you would like to own the Fein, but shy away because of the price.......maybe the SoniCrafter is for you?

Garett, do you actually own a Soni-Crafter or did you just see the commercial?

I bought the Dremel version and it's not bad for small jobs. Sucker gets HOT though...

How are the blades as far as quality?

I haven't bothered to see what other brands fit the Fein.

They seem good but in all fairness, i havent used the hf blades as much as the fein blades. Im curios also what other brand of blade will fit the fein. I think the hf blades are 7.00

No I don't, I just caught the last segment of an info commercial and thought I'd share.

Why are you guys that own the Fein looking for blades other than from Fein? ....I'm assuming the Fein blades are expensive? How's the life of the blades? Can you not get them resharpened?....I know my tool sharpening guy can sharpen just about anything.

The blade cost is high for the Fein. Most everyone looks for alternatives. Life span is OK but there is always the hidden screw, nail, or staple and these items are instant death for that section of the blade. These are not bi-metal blades. The killer part I understand is the new cam lock on the Fein uses a special blade. I have the old style that required the allen wrench to change the blade. I've been told that other blade brands may fit these older style tools.

I can't imagine sharpening these blades. The teeth are very fine.

I buy the Fein blades in 3 and 4 packs. Average $10.00 - $15.00 per blade that way.
As for resharpening, if you hit a nail, the teeth get worn to nothing so there is nothing to sharpen. Not like a carbide toothed blade where you're sharpening an edge of a tooth..
