RK5100K Sonicrafter Review
A great value tool for a reasonable price
Pick up the SoniCrafter, and two words come to mind: solid and durable. I made repeated cuts in hardwood, sanded in tight corners, and used the tool for grout removal; it was powerful in every test. I wish it accepted Fein blades, though, because the wood-cutting blades included in the kit wore out quickly compared to the competition. I appreciate the idea of a vacuum attachment, but it seems like more of an afterthought on this tool because the port was too small to be effective and because the fan from the motor blew away more dust than was collected. The canvas carrying case tied for last place, offering little organization and making me search for accessories at the bottom of the bag. I think the price of any of the three Rockwell kits is within reason, but I thought the 20-piece kit (RK5100K; $120) was the best value in the review. If I were a homeowner looking for a reasonably priced oscillating multitool to remove a shower’s worth of grout joints, this would be the tool.
