Man I should have bought these years ago. I replaced a window sill Monday and had to trim the molding to fit the new sill and that oscillating tool worked a treat!Our dining room plans changed. Prices have gone up so much we decided to just paint it and do the trim ourselves. So I picked up a nailer and oscillating saw to help put it up.

I should have bought a nailer 10 years ago. Man that's nice...
I have been using them daily. The small one gets used the most. I have done everything from 22g aluminum, 24g stainless up to 11g steel. No issues yet. They do like a pilot hole to keep them from walking.
i can tell you i had around a 7/16" pilot hole in some 1/2" total thickness stuff . i grabbed the one for 3/4" and my old j.c.penny hand drill thats 5amps and 0-650 rpm went threw there like it was butter . i have never used a step bit that eat metal this easy and fast . now how long they last will find out .
i think the biggest thing these days is drills spin to dam fast and you smoke bits . i have found my bits last longer cause i use 1 of 3 drills . 650 max / 1,000 max / 400 max . in the past with drills doing 2,500-up i tend to smoke bits even with oil of some kind . now i use these slower drills and oil i only have problems if i get stupid with them .
