Starlock Explained: Fein & Bosch’s NEW Multi-Tool Blade System
Bosch and Fein have just launched a NEW blade mounting system for oscillating tools called Starlock!
This system has been developed as the new standard for multi-tools and accessories.
Read on for a summary of everything you need to know!
Starlock was created by Bosch and Fein. It’s an improved, standardised accessory-fitting system for multi-tools. Starlock blades feature a future-proof ‘cake-tin’ pattern for a 3D connection between the motor and accessory. This ensures 100% power transfer for maximum performance, stability and precision.
There are three different types of Starlock accessories: Starlock, StarlockPlus and StarlockMax. We’ll explain the difference between these later on.
Each Starlock category is designed to match the power output of its compatible oscillating tools. Starlock blades can be used with ANY multi-cutter. StarlockPlus and StarlockMax blades require more power and are therefore limited to use with certain multi-tools. StarlockMax is the most powerful blade classification.
Fit ALL multi-cutters. This includes Bosch, Fein, Makita, Metabo, Hitachi, Milwaukee, AEG, Einhell, Ryobi and Skil. DeWalt multi-tools require an adapter.
Fit ALL Fein multi-cutters, ALL new Bosch Starlock multi-tools and some old Bosch oscillating tools with OIS interface. This includes the GOP 300, GOP 250, GOP 18 V and PMF 350 CES. Other brands require an adapter.
Fit ALL new Bosch StarlockMax multi-cutters and ALL new Fein StarlockMax multi-tools. Other brands require an adapter.
Note: Old multi-tool blades are not compatible with new Starlock multi-tools.
We hope you’ve found our Starlock overview helpful. This new system is a great invention and provides great improvement on the previous OIS interface.
We have great NEW deals across Bosch and Fein’s Starlock range! Whether you’re looking for blades, sanding/polishing accessories, corded multi-tools or cordless multi-tools – we have it all.
