Milwaukee M18 and M12 FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool
The Oscillating Multi-Tool [OMT] has changed the carpentry industry with it’s the ability to quickly and accurately make cuts that in the past required tedious and meticulous use of utility knives and chisels.
The multi-tool is often the perfect choice for tight spaces, awkward angles, and generally tough cuts. It’s become a problem solver for us in remodeling.
Milwaukee tool recently updated their M12 and M18 multitool line and are releasing a line of Milwaukee oscillating blades. When you see the word FUEL that means brushless motor.
So What’s Been Updated?
The Milwaukee FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool brushless motor makes this new tool more powerful and cut up faster It definitely faster than my older M18 multitool.
The tool has a 4.2 Degree Oscillation Angle, which Milwaukee found offers a sweet spot between aggressive cutting and less vibration.
Auto Control Start
Having a variable speed lets you “set and forget,” the speed so you can turn on the tool, and focus on making that precise cut.
This new multi-tool has a 10-speed dial, ranging from 10,000- 20,0000 strokes per minute. There is an “A” on the dial which is an “Auto-Controlled Start” feature.
If you adjust the variable speed dial all the way to “A,” it does the following:
New Housing Look with 180 LED Coverage
The newer M18 FUEL is slimmer in the handle but larger in the working end of the tool. It’s power switch lower and more recessed on the tool. I’m assuming this was done to keep the grip area of the tool more comfortable [added rubber over-mold] the old location irritates the hand over long use.
SMARTER rubber over-mold placement
The blade release lever has been recessed on the new FUEL and still has that fast and easy tool-free blade change.
The new FUEL OMT has a new look in the front end. Milwaukee changed the LED from one light to a 3- LED light with 180-degree coverage.
WAY Less Vibration
Next to the power and increase in the speed of cut, Milwaukee significantly reduced the tool vibration. One way they accomplished was to add foam blocks to the motor to separate the housing from the motor. This vibration dampening system was designed to reduce vibration over the entire tool, not just the handle.
The reduced vibrations are immediately noticeable in the feel of the tool. Especially when you use the new Fuel and the older M18 side-by-side.
Using the Milwaukee FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool
We used both the M12 and M18 Milwaukee FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool for several weeks, on multiple projects. Some of the applications involved cutting back old plank and oak flooring to fit a marble bathroom threshold. We later used the M12 OMT to cut back trim and extension jambs on a tongue and groove beadboard project. Lastly, we used the Milwaukee M18 FUEL MultiTool to finish cuts in floor joists and clean up nails ain preparation for flush beam installation.
The Auto Start feature was impressive and truly allowed me to start the cut and then power through.
