What is the Worx 2.5 Amp Oscillating Multi-Tool with Clip-In Wrench?
The Worx Oscillating Multi-Tool is a handheld multi-purpose oscillating tool designed for jobs that are too small or intricate for a traditional power tool, but too big for hand tools. Adapted for a wide variety of applications including sawing, sanding, scraping, cutting, rasping and removing grout, the Worx Oscillating Multi-Tool has variable speed control to adapt to the demands of each project and material.
Taking the Oscillating Multi-Tool to the next level, Worx has included a Clip-In Wrench on the WX686L, which replaces the traditional method of attaching accessories and makes it easier than ever. No more allen keys or flanges to lose. Simply slide the On-Board Clip-In Wrench forward, insert in the head of the Oscillating Multi-Tool and twist to unlock the interface. Slide on your preferred accessory, and twist the wrench again to securely attach your accessory to the Multi-Tool. Re-install the On-Board Clip-In Wrench and you're ready to work. It's that simple.

Why is the Worx Oscillating Multi-Tool safer than other types of saws?
Worx Oscillating Multi-Tool accessories move in a tiny back-and-forth motion just like the blades on medical grade saws used to cut off casts. The action moves accessories side to side at an incredible rate of up to 20,000 oscillations per minute. It can easily cut through something as hard as a nail but won’t damage something as delicate as a balloon! Smooth-running oscillation eliminates the kick-back common to circular saws and similar tools, which have rotating blades that can grab or tear material and are difficult to control.

The 2.5 Amp Worx Oscillating Multi-Tool uses a 3.2° angle of oscillation.
