These machines are capable of performing a wide range of functions that, for various reasons, conventional tools are often unable to perform.
You can use this tool for anything from sanding and sawing small sections of awkwardly-placed wood, to quickly and easily removing grouting from tiles. It works by moving the head from side to side by a tiny fraction, which causes the blade or sanding pad to perform tiny cutting or sanding motions. See right for an illustration of the cutting action.
One of the main advantages of these tools is the huge variety of compatible accessories available. The range includes sanding and scraping accessories, as well as blades for sawing and plunge-cutting wood, metal, soft materials, plastic and more,

The size of these machines combined with the offset blade allows very easy flush cutting. This is useful for applications such as fitting flooring along skirting boards, as well as easy cutting of complex recesses for plug sockets, etc., or cutting tiny slivers of material. When sanding, the small size enables the use of a triangular sanding pad which can sand right into small corners.
