Porter Cable Multi-Tool Review:
The majority of people who have used the Porter Cable Multi-Tool have good things to say about it although they do advise caution when trying to penetrate inner areas of wood. If too much pressure is applied, the Porter Cable Multi-Tool stops working. Also while sanding, in just under an hour of use, the sanding platen is unable to hold the sandpaper properly as the tip and sides fuse with the heat generated.
If you are looking to make a box, the Porter Cable Multi-Tool is only good for cutting out an opening and not for making the sides of the box as the cut lines lack joinery quality. The noise and the dust generated by the tool is also a bit on the higher side. The hacksaw edged metal cutting blade tends to wear off easily when used to trim brass bolts.
Most don’t mind these minor glitches faced with the Porter Cable Multi-Tool considering the ease with which they are able to change blades and the speed and precision with which they are able to complete the work at hand. It being a compact lightweight tool makes it very attractive to women woodworkers too.
The general consensus is that the Porter Cable Multi-Tool is a must-buy for anyone who is looking to cut, sand, scrape, or grind with precision and speed.
