Question: Excessive Noise/vibration From M...
I am a homeowner but, I have used this tool a lot, mostly renovating my beachhouse and my home such as taking up linoleum tile which took several hours using the scrape blade attachment. I have noticed lately that the tool seems to vibrate more than usual and makes more noise. It is probably a bearing but, given how much they cost (and there are 3 or 4 of them) and, the difficulty that it will take to install them, is it worth fixing?

It sounds like the bearing in most likely the cause.As a general rule if the tool can be repaired for under half its replacement cost it generally worth link removed the manufacture and see if they have a flat rate to repair the tool.A lot of tool manufactures will have a flat rate for each of the models they sell.Also you can always repair it yourself.Hope that helps.Good luck.
The pin that holds the blade tight against the tool won't release the blade.
I recently purchased the FMM250Q and had a similar experience... I would have to pry the pin out with a screwdriver to remove the blade. I talked to a Rockler rep and he suggested to lubricate the pin. I did so and I can remove the pin and blade by hand.
I have a Multi-master that is about 3 years old. One of my guys told me it won't work anymore so I checked into it and I find the brushes look new. Is there anyway to check out the switch assembly?
finding the same thing, if you find out please post. thanks
You should be able to test the switch using a multimeter. Set it up to test resistance. Then look for continuity through all paths through the switch. Also turn the switch off and make sure that the path is cut through all paths.
I hope this helps!
Review: Fein - FMM250 FMM250Q Is PERFECT
This is by far the best tool that I have ever owned. I do not know how I survived in the past before I purchased this tool. The versatility and the power of this tool is unsurpassed by no other. I highly recommend the Fein Multimaster over any other oscillating tool. I had the Dremel Multi Max and it only lasted a month before the motor burned out. The old expression "You get what you pay for" applies to this tool.

As a hardware dealer I get to review a lot of tools. I sell the Dremel multi-max and its a good tool, but when asked which is the best I always honestly have to say it is the Fein. Dremel is at the bottom of my list. Its all about how much you will use it and how much you want to pay. All of these oscillating tools are incredibly useful though.
