Question

I have an old blackjack in quite good shape however my deck seams are ready to be renewed. I presume I should go for the tool to fit the smallest seam and perhaps use it in both directions on those that are a little wider. Any reason not to? Chip

wassa old blackjack? We have a 40 ft. Albin trawler. The Fein has a been great help. We had lots of teak to do. As far as direction if you go to the grain in stead of down sea the blade will grab material from the sides and splinter the edge. Get two tool blades as they do wear down. Jay aka Mudskipper/

Answer

This is a good tool and will remove the bulk of the old caulk. It does make sense to use the tool that will fit in the smallest seam. You do not want to cut the edge of the planks with it. Our caulk (MARITIME TEAK DECK CAULK) will adhere to the old caulk that is left, as long as it is not crumbling or seperating from the plank edge. Be sure to blow out or vacuum the seam to get all of the dirt out of it and then wipe it with alcohol or acetone. If you do want to remove the caulk that the Multimaster didn't get. Take some 60 or 80 grit sticky back sandpaper and put it on a thin piece of plywood that will fit in the seam and work it back and forth. This can also be used to help even out the seams. If you have more questions, don't hesitate to call. Bob Schultz Operations Manager/Maritime Wood Products 772-287-2919

Answer

That what I did and it worked out ok. If you go too big you take a chance. Be carefull with the fein. It is really easy to start a large splinter if you are too much in a hurry Brad

Answer

Chip. Thats exactly what I did for my 36' Albin trawler and it worked out fine. It took a little getting used too but the tool and the job were new to me, and once I got the hang of it, things went along a lot faster than I though they would. I also found the grout removal tool to be by far the easyest way to trully clesn up the sides of the joints. even though it wore out the bit the time it saved and the job it did was well worth it. good luck to you.

Answer

It will save alot of time and headache if you spring for the narrowest and widest blade you need. Making two or more passes with the narrow one is too tedious and you will tend to gouge the teak. I have three sizes now for my 1970 Grand Banks. What is a blackjack?

Answered on 07/31/2012 by WILLY NYE

Answer

Hi, I don't think so. I used the tool to reef out the deck seams on my GB36, which were all about the same width. Two passes would make the seam wider, but it might be hard to keep the seams straight. If you have a lot of deck with seams to be widened, it might be better to use a small Skil saw with stacked blades and a guide pin on the base for the long runs, and use the Fein Multimaster for the tricky bits. Good luck. Roger

Answered on 07/29/2012 by ROGER HOWELL

Answer

Other than the extra time involved I can't think of any reason not to try it especially if the seams aren't an exact match for the width. I have both sizes but I find the larger size easier to use.

perfect just go slow until you get the hang of it

Answered on 07/30/2012 by RONALD BAUMAN

Answer

Chip, I have a '84 Hans Christian 33T with a lot of teak deck seams. I bought this unique tool to accomplish this very difficult job. It is in my opinion the perfect tool for the job. Use the tool for the narrowest seams and it will trim the wider ones. The tool is sharp and the wood wil trim as easily as the old caulk, but with control and slow speed you can avoid cutting into the wood grain. The tool stays sharp for a long time and I used 1 tool to clear the seams on my boat. as long as you don't hit any metal fasteners in the process. Good luck, Doug

Answered on 07/30/2012 by DOUGLAS ATKINS

Answer

I went with the same approach when I sized the 'teak blade' to match my seams; sizing to the smallest seam. It turns out this was a good way to go. In practice, I would cut along one seam edge, then come back to do the other. While the tool blade is hands down better than reefing the old way, it can grab a splintering edge. Best to go with the grain on each seam edge. BTW, I thought this was a pretty penny to pay for a single blade, but that blade has remained sharp throughout use.

Answer

The fastening pattern on the Fein teak blade fits over the star on the Fein Multimaster. I am unfamiliar with the Rockler fastening pattern so I think you should contact Rockler and ask them the question before you make the investment.

Answer

JP, This will work on a rockler tool. You must make sure that the head piece is tightened up enough otherwise the fein blade will break. at the fitting to the head. They are awesome blades. The fein tool is worth it's weight in gold. I do deck work and have for about 20 years and am only on my third fein. These new blades make seems 1/4 of the time. Hope this helps. Cheers Vanessa

Will this blade fit on any other oscillating tool? like the skil multi-tool? or is there one made for the skil? I need this blade and the tool but the Fein tool is way too expensive and other manufacturers make a more affordable tool but I can't find the blade. Thank yo so much! ;D

I can't speak for every manufacturer, but we used it on a Rigid multi-tool with no problems. This blade, plus the reefing knife were huge timesavers!

it's about the same price. The Skil Multi tool is $59. That's a significant savings. I'm just gonna go and try the Fein blades on the Skil at the store ...if they fit...I know I'm golden! Thanks for your help guys! ;D

Answer

I forgot to mention that, not only will Fein blades and accessories fit the Rockwell, nearly all of the other brands of blades will also fit the Rockwell. Again, I personally like the Rockwell Sonicrafter X2 model. This interchangeability is obviously a huge advantage.

Answered on 07/26/2013 by JIMMY QUAST

Answer

The Fein MultiMaster Teak Blades will fit most of the Rockwell line of oscillating tools. I am using the Fein Teak Blades on a Rockwell Sonicrafter X2, which is actually a little more powerful than the Fein MultiMaster and is easier to change bits and accessories with it's tool-less blade mounting system. As you have noted, you can get one of these for considerably less than the Fein, and I am convinced that it is just as high quality after looking at most of the tools on the market. Good Luck

Question

My deck seams are 3/16" what size Fein cutter should I buy?

Asked on 07/18/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I have 2 blades - 1 is a little smaller than my deck seam. The second one is equal to the width and it works much better. You can angle the blade slightly to pick up residual caulk. With a little practice, you get pretty good.

Answer

I found that the smallest blade works best. I take the seam out in 2 passes so the blade should be a little bigger than half of your total seam width.

Answered on 07/19/2013 by DALE IRWIN

Answer

I would use a 3/16. The blade needs to touch the wood to remove all of the old sealant. Fein USA lists this number as their 3/16 model, 6 39 03 202 01 9. I think that would be the Jamestown Distributors 5mm blade.

Answered on 07/18/2013 by DAVID WEST

cannt remember what one I bought. Convert 3/16 to inches and go from there. This tool works like a champ

Can these Fein blades be used with a Porter-Cable Oscillating Multi-Tool?

Asked on 06/09/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes, in fact, that is the tool I use them with. However, you need to use the adaption ring that converts the hexagonal configuration to a matted surface. It comes with the Porter-Cable tool kit but you purchase it at most home improvement stores.
