How to Use a Fein Blade in a Sonicrafter

Any price comparison will reveal that a Rockwell Sonicrafter beats a Fein Multimaster hands-down. However, some say that while the sanding blades available for a Sonicrafter are more than adequate to do the job, the cutting blades are just not up to the quality of the Fein blades. That problem used to leave the prospective customers for each tool wondering whether they should spend less money on a Sonicrafter and get blades that are not up to the job or spend the extra money on a Multimaster just to get the blades. Fortunately, several tool manufacturers have come out with adapters for the Sonicrafter that allows the use of Fein blades.
