Craftsman Nextec Offers Single Speed Sanding and LED Worklight

Craftsman Nextec Multi Tool and Accessories The Nextec Multi-tool is lightweight, has a quick charging battery, and comes with several grains of sanding discs for fine detailing.

Craftsman has entered the multi-tool category with its cordless Nextec™ ($99.99 in 2010). Like Bosch, this tool powers up with a Li-ion DieHard® 12-volt battery, and it’s one of several cordless tools in the Nextec™ line. The charger replenishes it in only 30 minutes, which is good, since you only get one battery.

Mounting head on Craftsman Nextec The mounting system on the Craftsman multi-tool's head accepts all of Craftsman's accessories as well as the Fein MultiMaster ones.

Craftsman uses a four-pin connection for attachments, and smartly, the design also allows it to accept the mounting pattern of Fein MultiMaster accessories.

The Nextec™ is a single-speed tool, running at 15,000 opm. You might find that limiting for slower, careful detail work. But it’s a featherweight at only 1.75 lbs., which should make it easy to handle for any user. Other amenities, including a built-in LED worklight, 1-1⁄4" dust collection port and a boatload of standard attachments-make up for the single speed. You get a sanding pad and several grits of paper, round and triangular carbide-coated grinding blades, round and straight flush-cutting blades, a scraper and a soft-sided carry case. Quite a bargain here.
