Down-to-the-wire Santas shopping for do-it-yourselfers on their holiday gift lists should check out the new generation of Rockwell® oscillating tools, such as the budget-friendly Sonicrafter®, model RK5121K.

Rockwell Sonicrafter, Model RK5121K

Rockwell's new Extended Life blades make great stocking-stuffers.

The Sonicrafter RK5121K ($79) is loaded with premium features found only on Rockwell oscillating tools.

Universal Fit™, the industry’s first true universal accessory system, enables Sonicrafters to accept other brands of accessories without adapters. Plus, Rockwell’s universal accessories can be used with all competitors’ oscillating tools without sacrificing fit or performance.

Only Sonicrafter oscillating tools, including the RK5121K, feature a spring-loaded centering mount that positively engages accessories with the help of the Hyperlock™ tool-less blade change system. Hyperlock provides one ton of clamping force to prevent blade slippage and stopped cuts.

Powered by a 3.0 amp, variable-speed motor, the Sonicrafter RK5121K weighs only 2.9 lbs. and delivers 11,000 to 21,000 oscillations per minute (OPM). It provides an impressive 21 lbs. of force behind each cut. This means the RK5121K can be pushed harder and cuts faster without stalling, compared to competitors’ tools. The RK5121K comes with 31 Universal Fit accessories, including (2) 1-1/8 inch, end-cut blades, (1) rigid scraper blade, (1) sanding pad, (26) sanding sheets, plus carrying bag. It is backed by a 3 year warranty.

This capable multi-tool handles numerous home and shop projects that save time, effort and money. Attach an end-cut blade to make intricate end- or plunge-cuts in wood and other materials. These blades are handy for trimming doorjambs or cutting PVC or metal plumbing pipes flush to flat surfaces.

Switch to a carbide grit semicircular blade to grind grout from between floor or wall tiles. Clamp on a rigid scraper blade to remove blistered paint, take rust to bare metal or scrape hardened caulk or adhesives. Triangular sanding pads and sanding sheets are great for sanding in corners and tight spaces.

New Extended Life blades, featuring bi-metal composition with hardened teeth for longer life, recently have been added to the Rockwell Universal Fit accessory line. They’re bound to be favorite DIY stocking-stuffers.

The Extended Life line includes three sizes of wood and nail plunge-cut blades: the, Universal Fit 1-3/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade (RW8929, $9.99), Universal Fit 1-3/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade 3-Pack (RW8929.3, $24.99), Universal Fit 1-1/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade (RW8930, $9.99), Universal Fit 1-1/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade 3-Pack (RW8930.3, $24.99), Universal Fit 3/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade (RW8931, $9.99) and Universal Fit 3/8 inch Extended Life Wood & Nail Plunge Cut Blade (RW8931.3, $24.99).
