OK, so I am starting a topic with no content  [big grin]

       Hoping that this can become a reference (sticky) as to which blades fit which oscillating multitools. And maybe a good explanation of the various types of mountings.  Which types are compatible, cross compatible, backwards compatible , etc. There have been a number of topics  and questions on this over recent years and I still can't easily sort it out since it is spread through out the forum and there is also incomplete or over ridden terminology involved.

     I would like to keep it to  just the blades for ease of reference. Blade adapters OK, but not other accessories.

    Those who know.........................  please contribute to this topic. I think it will help a lot of people.

Corded Vecturo uses an outmoded mount that was exclusive to the Fein Supercut before the adoption of Starlock.
Cordless Vecturo uses Starlock (Fein Multi-Talent), Starlock Plus (Fein Multi-Master) and Starlock Max (Supercut).

Before Starlock, Bosch came out with the OIS mount that much of the industry has adopted after Bosch moved onto Starlock.
I'm not aware of Starlock/OIS blades being interchangeable without adaptors.

Starlock and Starlock Plus blades are backwards compatible with the immediate previous generation of MultiMaster.

Plunge base for both Vecturos requires the longer Supercut/Starlock Max blades only made by Fein (or sold as Festool).

There's your jump off.

The Fein 63733005010 adaptor and clamping bolt will allow you to fit Fein Multimaster accessories on to the Festool Vecturo OS 400 which uses the Fein Supercut 2.0 mounting. I bought this adapter and it works fine with Multimaster accessories. But it seems that there is a problem when using the Festool plunge base: the adapter protrudes a half-inch which means that there's a gap between the Multimaster blades and the magnet.

The Fein 35222952050 adapter is required to fit Starlock blades on Supercuts tools with a quick in lock such as the Festool Vecturo OS 400. I haven't used it yet, but it seems that this adapter will accept Starlock, Starlock Plus and Starlock Max accessories.

I'm trying to get hold of some Festool 500129 blades for my Vecturo OS 400, which are the long ones that work well with the magnet on the plunge base**, so I was doing a bit of research on this and came across the following pics on the Fein site, which is a useful reference:


**Am I right in thinking you can only use the long blades with the magnet?
