    @Miamicuse WOW , definitely surprised at all the blades , I guess it goes to show that just because they are expensive , not necessarily the best ,
    I’ll try to check out the omt video , thanks for sharing , for the amount of time I used the omt , definitely not going to spend much for blades after seeing this

    Ps a side note , I tried once using the bosch 2.5 amp omt with the metal cutting blade for one concrete nail , 🤯 could not even scratch it , ruined the blade after a few minutes 🤷‍♂️

    yes I don’t have much luck with OMT blades.

    I think some blades are better than others, but when I use an OMT tool I need it to do it’s work, I can’t “baby” the blades. Sometimes it dulls the blade quick sometimes I got smoke coming out of the wood LOL.

    That’s why I end up deciding to stock up on blades so I don’t think about it much, but I end up with over 60 blades of all kinds which locked me into the OIS family. I have a Bosch OMT which is nice but I also dulled it’s scarper in like 5 minutes trying to remove adhesive.

    One thing that I am really annoyed at, and EVERY brand does this, is when they sell you a new OMT, they always include some accessories, like “INCLUDES 72 ACCESSORIES” to make it sound like wow great deal, 72 blades can last a long time until you open it and it’s 68 pieces of tiny triangular sandpapers and 4 blades!

    So true they do the same with drill bits and hex bits. Oh well, I buy most of my OMT blades at the BF sales.

    Lmao 🤣😆 yeah that’s how I bought the first Bosch , it was in the kit with over 30 something pieces , it actually wasn’t that bad , years ago it came with some pretty decent blades for grout removal and a few other types for special needs ,
    And yeah each piece of sandpaper counts as a piece lol

    It is interesting how they portray the OMT’s. I really think of them as a cutting tool and forget about the sanding capabilities. I actually used one for sanding for the first time a month or so ago on a project. Most of the time, it is just cutting.

    They do a good job sanding when needed to get into tight areas, but most people do not think of them for that.
