Rockwell Sonicrafter X2

Oscillating tools have always had proprietary accessories. The Sonicrafter is the first to take a utilitarian approach, able to securely screw down 16 brands' accessories with no adapter needed – a great touch. Sold with six accessories and three sanding sheets, the 3.3-pound tool performed admirably, sanding and cutting at 20,000 OPM. Its most notable trait, however, was a finicky on-off switch that gave us headaches. [$150; rockwelltools.com]
