Multi-function tools are very flexible power tools designed for use in smaller-scale work and projects. Multi-function power tools use an oscillating (or side-to-side) motion to perform tasks such as routing, cutting, sawing, scraping and sanding. The functions of a multi-function tool are dependant on the tool, and the accessories available for it. The accessories for the specific multi-function tool also affect the materials it can be used with, but this may include use on copper, plastics, wood, stone, metals and more.
- Choosing your power source: The first choice is between a mains (110v or 240v) or a cordless tool. 240v tools are used with normal mains power whilst 110v tools are used on construction sites for safety reasons.
- With regards to cordless (battery powered) tools there are a variety of chemical types; Li-ion is the latest technology, prior to that it was Ni-MH and Ni-Cad was the original. The higher the Ah (Ampere hours) the longer the interval between charges; the fewer times you recharge a battery the longer it will last. Some cordless tools can also come without batteries - sometimes referred to as naked, bare units or body only. These tools are supplied without a battery or charger and more often than not without any accessories; as a result they are significantly cheaper in price.
