Two Oscillating Angles
The Rockwell RK5151K F80 Duotech Sonicrafter is the first tool on the market with two oscillating angles which are 5.0 degrees and 3.4 degrees, in one tool. The F80 is the newest innovation in the evolution of oscillating tools. Users can choose any of the degrees according to their priority. The 3.4 degrees angle provides with continuous control, while the 5.0 degrees is good at achieving more aggressive results with quicker cuts when the projects demand faster results. I have been using this tool for the last six months and I have felt like the oscillating angles come in really handy while working between two different projects with different needs. In this Rockwell F80 Review I want to add that I really like this utility and my previous tool didn’t have this feature.

The universal fit system truly feels like a full universal oscillating experience. I love the Rockwell RK5151K F80 Duotech Sonicrafter experience so far.

I love the tool box as well. The tool box is not just another cheap made box, and is quite roomy. It shuts down easily, without you having to fight to fit both the tools and the cord. The top of the box is adhered with two end clips. If you undone the clips, the whole top comes off. There are two large storage compartments on the top of the box where you can store your different blades and attachments.
