I have this Porter Cable and paid about this much a year ago, and it's a fair price considering the accessories, but the reviews are not kidding that this thing gets ridiculously hot and way too fast. Because of that, it's hard to hold for really accurate cuts, and I use it less than I would because it's only good for one or two quick cuts.

The depth stopper is nice. I once had to cut through a panel that was mounted to the back of a 4k display in a museum exhibit, and I did not destroy the display.

Also, and maybe it's just mine, but it vibrates the bejeezus out of my hand, and I generally don't have a problem with other multi-tools or sanders-- I feel like more power is going into my arm than the work-piece. IMO, it's worth the extra to get a Bosch, Makita, Dewalt, or Fein.

Bought this to rip out drywall. Works like a charm with bi metal blades from HF. I do agree with blocky though, this thing gets crazy hot, but as long as you don't cup the fan ports, you can still apply pressure and use it for extended periods (about an hour straight for me). Once you're done with it though, you'll feel the tingle for a good hour.

Is corded or cordless better for this tool or power tools in general? I can't decide what would perform better for my $. Anyone have some insight?

Also, is this type 1 or type 2 that can use universal attachments?

How does this compare to the HF tool?
Also does the tool accept other bits (from other mfg)?

Almost positive this is Type 2. From what I've gathered, the Type 1 hasn't been sold for years.

For a tool like this that draws so much current I go corded... If you go cordless make sure you have a bunch of spare batteries.

Don't get this brand tho, I own it and regret getting it. Heats up freekin hot and vibrates till I can't feel my fingers anymore. I still use it and it gets the job done but I wish I held off and purchased a Rockwell or Craftsman instead.

For this price, it is a good trade off in my opinion. It does get hot, but I usually have work gloves on when using something like this. Mine is 4 years old, and got it for $58 with a few more attachments. (Which Dewalt 'universal' ones fit) It is heavy, and the only other thing I would note, is the quick change lever gets in the way sometimes. (as being on the bottom)

I have a Makita battery-powered one for finer, small work.

Thanks for the feedback. I've read some reviews on Amazon that say that too, but others said if you don't hold it in a way that blocks the air vents, then it shouldn't get crazy hot. Also, do you think other brands of oscillating tools would get less hot or do oscillating tools just get hot in general?

I have one. It does get hot but has worked well for me. Not sure you can beat it for the price.

I have the cheaper HF one. Gets VERY hit and the blades vibrate loose no matter how tight you have the set screw.

Weren't these $40 last year around this time?
