Nextec cordless multi tool

The tool worked great it did exactly what it was supposed to do until it came time to change to a different head.If the allen wrench that came with it was'nt of such poor quality the bolt would'nt have rounded out preventing the head to be removed.

I feel completely ripped off. Every bad review on here is accurate - nut strips, battery pops out. How on earth is this Craftsman? The thing is brand new and cannot be used. Worse I bought a bunch of accessories - all new - none cheap - and it's all going in the trash. Shame on you Sears.

Good for a couple of uses, then its junk


I bought this 2-1/2 years ago when we were installing hardwood floors in our home. I really only used it to cut the bottom of door trim and door jams. It worked ok for that at first, but then the problems started:
- The lugs on the battery on weak, and will wear down quickly. Then, the battery will constantly pop out.
- The screw that holds the blade in strips out, and is impossible to keep tight.
- The lugs that prevent the blade from turning are clumsy to use.
- The diamond blade is a wouldn't even make a dent in my grout.

If you purchase this, assume it will only be good for a few uses. After that, you will be incredibly frustrated..

Excellent Multi-Tool


I really enjoy the Nextec series. This multi-tool is no exception. No need to spend twice as much on another brand's multi-tool when Nextec is built on Craftsman quality.
