Fein vs festool multitool blades
« on: September 21, 2015, 11:40 PM »
First of all am I right to assume the vecturo and supercut blades are interchangeable?  I have a vecturo so I'm curious.  Second, is a difference in quality between the fein supercut and the festool blades.

Same - Yes.

Quality difference - I doubt it, but I haven't tested.

Personally I'm planning to trial Supercut compatible blades from third parties as the cost different is massive, typically 80% less costly if you buy sufficient numbers. I've heard the quality of the third partly blades are variable .. just a matter of finding a good one.

I've tried most brands and 3rd party are usually junk, but there's one brand that I've found to actually be very good and they are SMART, from their professional range.

While not speaking specifically about the Supercut, for the Multimaster, I use the Falx for rough wood carpentry and the Bosch carbide for cutting plaster walls. Both cut extremely well and have a long life.

229907-0

Very fast cutting for 2X material. Just keep the blade moving so it will clean out the kerf and thus reduce the heat the blade has to endure.

229909-1

Bosch with carbide teeth.

229911-2

Bosch teeth after cutting 15-20 feet of a 3/4" thick plaster wall.

The Fein Supercut blades fit directly on to the head of the Festool Vecturo, no adapter necessary.

However, none of the Fein blades (including the Supercut) are as long as the Vecturo blades; as a result none will fit the Vecturo properly when the Vecturo is mounted with the plunge cutting base.

The quality of the Fein and Festool blades is the same in every other respect, except that Fein has a much much larger repertoire of options than Festool has.  Fein also has a wonderful handle which complements the Vecturo to a tee...
