Fein 12v Kit has landed
« on: October 04, 2019, 11:27 PM »
Well I’m pretty excited about this little combo kit. Ever since I ditched my Milwaukee oscillator for a Fein 350q I haven’t looked back. I love it and I don’t even mind the cord especially since the cord kicks on my Midi and helps me keep my job sites clean. But when I have just two cuts to make in baseboard getting out a cord can be kind of... a drag.

So I have had my eye on the cordless Fein. But at $199 for the kit I couldn’t quite justify it. But kicking around on eBay I found this brand new kit. I made an “offer” of $150 but was denied. So I bid the old fashioned way and to my absolute surprise I won the auction at $119. So the drill in the kit was more of a bonus. It has a detachable head which is great for drilling/driving in succession. Unfortunately the best head (90 degree) is NAINA except at an import cost of $150+.

Anyway. First impressions these both feel great and smooth. Battery slides on like a dream. If anyone is interested I will update as I use them over the next couple weeks.

First things first gotta get them moved to a systainer. This Fein case is actually super nice though. I wish the insert would fit in a sys but I’ll probably have to cut a new one.

Great deal you caught there!
I got myself the SuperCut, when the new version came out a year or so ago...
It even came with Fein-Systainers, might be an option for your kit to move into, if you manage to grab some. :)

I really like the 12 batteries, nice and light. I got one to make the SuperCut „ultralight“ for awkward positions.

Enjoy the tools!

Yes the batteries are extremely light I can’t believe it. I wish I could have justified the supercut but this will be perfect for my needs.
My 350q is in a fein sys 1. So I guess this kit and that tool will have to fight it out for who gets an official sys and who sits in an old festool one :)
