Better than expected
I have just recently cut off three oak door jambs for installation of hardwood flooring. This unit is far superior to the oscillating tool I was using; in the quality of the cut and ease of changing blades and time needed for the cut.

My first Oscillating Multi-tool
It does cuts much easier than it would be with some other tools that I have. I'm still learning on this one, but so far I like it and the quick release of the cuts is great.

Great tool
Wonderful tool my only real complaint is that one plunge cut rubs away the depth markings. Please laser etch them. There are aftermarket blade adaptors out there to add additional blade types. However you loose the quick change feature

Great Tool - Needs adapter kit
Great tool. I bought this as a compliment to my FRUED Oscillating tool (which also has a quick disconnect). The problem with the Porter Cable is they cannot accomodate after market blades which is their achilles heal. I do not recommend buying this tool until Porter Cable puts out a "Blade adapter" otherwise you pay through the nose for blades. PC uses a 270 degree blade (they cut out part of the blades round area so it will slide through the shaft to accomodate the quick disconnect feature. No other blades are compatible. Frued quick disconnect feature allows for univeral blade compatibility with adapter sold separately. If Porter Cable reps are reading this, you need to introduce adapter else folks will buy competitors (which there are lots of them now that the patent is up on the Frued).

Outstanding, Perfect Product for the Pro
I work with new construction and remodel projects from the small residential to the high-profile large commercial venues. I specialize in granite installation and tile setting. To use a well-known computer phrase, this tool is "Plug-n-Play" which makes it out-of-the-box ready-to-go for any level craftsman. The blades change as easily on the job, as they did in the commercial. I can make any cut, from any angle, and reach tight spaces. It's perfect for clean kitchen backsplash removal, particularly when you want clean cuts that do not tug and tear the surrounding sheetrock, which might have a wallpaper or textured paint that the customer does not want to repair. It's perfect for making the outlet punch-cuts and fine-tuning the cuts on the backerboard for a tight fit. While there is obviously dust with a cutting tool, this tool seems to minimize the amount of dust, which allows an installer to use it indoors without fear of a dust cloud reminiscent of an atomic explosion's mushroom cloud. The best part might have been the price, which was exceptional thanks to CPO's holiday promotion. My overall experience, both with the product and CPO, led me to purchase another work tool from CPO. The price was good, and as always, the communication, delivery tracking, and delivery time were all truly exceptional. It would be foolish to not look at this tool for your craft as it has many uses, to include making baseboard cuts for wood or tile floors, etc. If you've ever had to change blades on a tool that required a hex key or wrench of some kind, then you will LOVE this tool-free power tool as much as I love it!
