Overview of the tool. Renovator
Multifunction tools from different manufacturers differ in some technical characteristics. In the first place is the power, which already depends on the frequency of oscillation. Typically, devices for home use produce no more than 300 watts, this is quite enough to perform 20000 revolutions per minute. The higher the RPM, the better and faster the operation. But different materials may require different frequencies, which is why most tools are equipped with electronic regulators. For sanding and sawing soft wood, you can set the maximum speed, and for metal you should choose a low speed. Also, the swing angle may differ, the total amplitude or the angle at which the working head deflects to the right and left of the axis is indicated on the device. It affects the stroke length of the nozzle and there is little difference between the models. According to the type of power they divide mains and cordless renovators. Most cordless ones use lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 1 to 3 Ah, and often come with spare. Take this into account, as it is quite difficult to find batteries separately from the tool on sale. Corded power tools are usually more powerful and better suited for continuous work and come with a 3 or 5 m cable.

The impact of the cutting tool on the metal creates blanks for further processing. Surface configuration is formed according to the drawings developed. You need equipment for cutting metal. These can be hand tools, mechanical machines or devices that provide heating of the material.
What is able to multitool remove the build-up of plaster, glue, foam, peel paint; peel linoleum from the floor; saw down nails and screws flush; remove slots in wood and plasterboard from the end and plunge (immersion);
And today, cutting metal with it is not only possible, but also quite convenient Video on using Renovator shows that it can be used for cutting nails and screws, for sawing parts of iron fixtures, for processing sheet metal.
What’s unique about the universal cutter
Considering that Renovators are not designed for high volume of works, it is difficult to find negative features in them.
Renovators have smooth, ground edges. Multitool is indispensable for cutting “sandwiches” of different density materials.
There is very little dust when working with the multi-tool, and it does not fly in all directions. And with a vacuum cleaner attached, you can do minor repairs at home without preparing the room.

Using a wood bandsaw to cut metal!
At the domestic market of power tools renovators are presented quite extensively. Models of such well-known manufacturers as Bosch, Fein, Makita, etc. are in the greatest demand.
The main parameters of some of them are summarized in a comparative table:
|Pmf190 e set||RTM 200S||OMNI 300||TM3000C||MultyMaster 350|
|Speed of rotation of electric motor, thous.about./min.||1521||1020||up to 20||620||1019,5|
One of the main advantages of the multi-tool is its versatility. With its help, you can mechanize a number of small, auxiliary operations, the need for which often arises during independent performance of works.
Contributes to this a large number of a variety of nozzles, the number of which in some kits can be up to 40 pcs. Each of the nozzles is designed to perform a specific type of work.
