Makita TM3000C/2 240V Multi-Tool
Recently purchased the Makita TM3000C/2 240V Multi-Tool at my local Screwfix. Although they did not have one in stock (Friday evening), they kept to their word and sent me a text just before 12pm on the Saturday to say it was ready for collection, excellent service!
This is the first multI-tool I have ever purchased and it's truly an amazing piece of kit. You can tell the quality of the Makita TM3000 when you first pick it up and put it to the test. Over two days, I have completely stripped out very hard grout from the 80-odd floor tiles in the conservatory which would have been impossible with other available hand tools. The entire job was done with just the use of one 'Erbauer' grout remover blade.
I found that running on setting number 2 was manageable and sufficiently powerful to achieve the results.
I will use the tool for several other DIY jobs too but this was the main purpose of initial purchase.
Overall, an excellent product which I would certainly recommending to anyone who is considering purchasing a multi-tool.

Multi Tools in general.
The essential usefulness of these tools lies in their ability to plunge-cut directly in at right angles to the work - an ability no other tool offers.
Totally essential for cutting electrical back-boxes through in situ wooden skirting board prior to sinking into the brick wall behind.
The precision of the cut obtained, and the ability to stop cutting at the exact point of penetration between skirting board and wall saves damaging the blade teeth, like no other method can.
The tool is also brilliant at cutting holes in T&G floor boards, with no extraneous damage. The piece so removed can be later replaced having sustained no further damage. "Pumpkin" cutting such (at 45 deg) edges facilitates later replacement. Also, because of the controlled cut-depth there's less danger of severing cables, gas/water pipes etc laying in wait just beneath the floor.
All in all, a whole new concept in 'surgical' woodwork. Thoroughly recommended.

Makita Multi Tool
absolute fabulous tool, found that it speed up work, in areas of limited space, as angle can be set to cut out required area.
