What's the Best Accessory for Your Oscillating Multi-Tool?

What's the Best Accessory for Your Oscillating Multi-Tool?

Posted by Toolstop Fraser on 20th Mar 2015

In this Toolstop Buying Guide (click for all our guides) we’ll walk you through some great accessory kits from Makita. It’s worth noting from the outset that these kits are compatible with all OIS oscillating multi-tools (click here to our guide to the best on the market).

All you do is buy the kit that’s best for the types of jobs you need to accomplish and fit them to your OIS tool, easy as that.

In our demo videos below we used the Makita BTM50 18v cordless machine, which is a cracker, however, it’s no longer manufactured, so check out the TM30DZ machine here.


The ability to buy a selection of tools for your oscillating multi-cutter/tool is a great idea. Within each pack, you’ll find the accessories you need based on the tasks you find yourself undertaking on a regular basis.
