    Bosch all the way, the blades are cheaper but no worse, the cordlessness is good, I've got one and it's fantastic, use it almost every day. It's a bit power-hungry, if you're using it heavily you'll need three batteries, but that's my only criticism of it, and it's not really a criticism as the power is useful. Not quite as powerful as the Fein (I've used them side-by-side) but does the job.

    Get the kit with the accessories if you can find it, there's loads in there and it's much cheaper than buying them individually, blades are cheaper that Fein but still around £6-£10 each

    had the gop about a year now fantastic tool
    latest job was fitting a tv hifi made from pine and looking along the lines off a traditional welsh dresser

    had to cut out a square to allow the light switch through
    then when it was fully loaded with tv and all the gagdets wired in had to cut a slot in the skirting and remove a corner off the cabinet for the wires you couldnt do those easily any other way with such resticted access

    Aminster have them for £99

    http://www.axminster.co.uk/bosch-bosch-gop-250-ce-multi-cutter-prod833182/

    What are they like to work with? How easily do they deal with plunge cuts in skirtings etc, whats the vibration, accuracy like?

    I too have never had the chance to play with one and guess I really could do with one.

    I don't care too much about price and don't necessarily need cordless but could you explain in detail the differences between the Bosch and fein. By the way i would never use it for delta sanding, I have a Festool DX93 for that.

    Thanks

    Cant see a problem with the cost of blades for either the Bosch machine or Fein multimaster when you can get perfectly good blades on ebay for roughly £4 a piece. IM NOT AFFILIATED TO SHARK BLADES but I have now used a number of their blades from ebay and it has made my Fein machine a necessity not a luxury. Hope this helps :)

    DAMN they're cheap! :D

    The cheapest I can find that sander for on Froogle is £189.

    It's 150W, which is the same as a cheapest it can get no name delta.

    Are they worth that, and if so, why?

    Festool worry me, as they sell normal tape measures for £14. Yikes!

    The bosch is good no issues

    For hard graft the fein supacut (industrial version).

    Use the bosch most of the time just so handy, fein with diamond blades for hard work cutting tiles grout etc etc

    They are at Aldi tomorrow (20th October) not 100% sure of the make but the blurb I saw said they came with a 3 year warranty. From the picture it looks a lot like this one they sell in Machine Mart

    http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/product/details/multifunction-grinder?da=1&TC=RV-060514180

    They work ok but you'll need some ear plugs in when you use them :(

    The GOP 250 CE is much quieter in comparison.
