[Canadian Tire] Mastercraft Multi Craft Tool (Cutting/Sanding/Sawing) 66% OFF! $149.99 - $100 = $49.99

Been looking at tools lately as I have been getting into woodworking. This seems like a good tool to have around, and the price is great & so are the reviews. I'm into things like reclaiming scrap wood, and this can be used for cutting out any hanging nails & follow up sanding.

Pay a few bucks more for a Ryobi cordless multitool. Friends don't let friends buy heavily inflated Mastercraft products. You generally use a multitool for hard to reach places and having a cord with you defeats that purpose.

I have a corded tool (not mastercraft) and while it requires an extension cord it should be fine.
Just make a judgement call about where you may need to do work (shed far from an outlet, mailbox far from an outlet, etc).

The Ryobi tool is gonna be more than a few dollars (either with battery or with the return battery 'trick').

The Ryobi is over twice the cost ($100+) sure it’s absolutely better lol… I’m in the Ryobi ecosystem but don’t use this tool all that often so I bought the 2.5a version of this for $39 on sale at CT a few months back. Don’t buy the 2.2, it’s under powered and wait for the 2.5 to go on sale. It has performed very well when I need it and has variable speed… also comes with some good accessories. Have used one of the cutoffs multiple times and it’s still performing.

omg after deduct 100$ it is still over priced about a few buckes, I remember I picked up this thing for lower $40, CT pricing is a scam, so can't be used as a benchmark for a deal.

These multi tools are damn handy for flooring jobs or other jobs where you want to cut something flush with a flat surface.

for most people who rarely use it why pay double and have to get a charger also. that’s just smart. ......

This is correct. I remember the price I bought it is at $30 or $39.

First oscillating tool I got was the 2.5 amp version of this (for 45 bucks lol), it was barely ok. 2 amps is weak but it depends what you want to do with it. Anyway, I'd say invest a bit more into something good.

I bought the 2.5A Mastercraft Multitool version and it was awesome, used it for gotta be close to 10 years and did everything i asked of it. I recently upgraded to the Dewalt 3A version however did that for the quick connect blades, other than that the Mastercraft was more than enough to do the job. I give credit where it is due, the 2.5A Mastercraft is a fine tool for the average joe.

That said do not know anything much about the 2.2A MAstercraft model, less power obviously so if you can wait till the 2.5A Mastercraft goes on sale that would be the sweet spot. It is only $10 more than the one on sale now, so on sale will be very similar in price. Canadian Tire tools go on sale very frequently, shouldn't be long till the 2.5A version is available for around the same price if you are able to wait.

It is an ok tool. I think I bought it for $29. It will be cheaper.

Canadian Tire deals should only be posted when the discount is higher than 70% since 70% off means it's regular price.

Same here. At under $30 it's a bargain on a very useful tool, complete with a small kit of blades and sanding pads. At $50, maybe not so much - the quality is fine, but the 2.2 amp version is a little light on power, The "regular" price is a ludicrous fabrication.

Today I learned about the web of lies that is CT pricing. Thank you RFD, I think I going to avoid this purchase actually.

Yup. $29. Good tool at that price. I'd maybe pay $39 but I don't think I'd pay more for it. Typical Canadian Tire behaviour.

Agreeds its underpowered.
It worked okay for undercutting door jambs for a flooring job. I've tried to cut some bolts, and it struggles. Overall happy that I paid about $29 last year for it.

35$ at princess auto. If you are going to buy mastercraft cheap, might as well get the right priced one.
