All paint removed to bare metal, no set screws to be seen. Made a cut with a hack saw in the top of the cutlass bearing, still won't come out with a punch. Sprayed a bunch of PB Blaster on it, hope it loosens some of the corrosion up and and get it out tomorrow. Shouldn't be difficult to drill and tap for set screws when Im getting ready to install the new one.

Wheel puller???  Don't tap to hard with the punch!


Check You Tube video of cutlass removal/installation with Strut Pro cutlass tool.  Costs around $350.  We just did ours in less than an hour.  No shaft removal!  Bearing pressed out and in with compression rather that beating.  Great tool.

I am in the market for an oscillating tool, and it seems like I won't be sorry if I get a Multimaster. Anyone have an opinion on whether the cordless performance is similar to the corded version?

Also looking at the Bosch if anyone wants to weigh in on that.



harbor freight has their variable speed on sale for $29, plus you can print off a 20% off coupon...


Harbor Freight = Chinese junk (not the sailing kind).  Don't waste your money on cheap tools.
