The Skil Multi Scraper 7710 in use

What it is

Skil make a lot of power tools that are useful in the workshop, on site and around the home, and their new multi scraper is one such tool that I am sure will fit the bill nicely.

The Skil Multi Scraper 7710 is an effectively percussive power unit that sports a slimline body with soft-grip sections, which fits in the hand well and is also designed to accept scraper and chisel bits. These are inserted in the front end via a tool-less CLIC mechanism that allows the fast changing of blades, which are locked in placed by a holding block fitting into the oval slot in the back section. Four blades are supplied: a 60mm standard blade, a 60mm spatula, a 15mm chisel and a 35mm universal blade, which allow the tool to be used for shaping, scraping and carving jobs. There are three speed options, which give you more control and afford you more sensitivity in use.

In use

The unit works very well. We used it to remove some paint, old tiles and stuck-down flooring, as well as to cut a mortise using the chisel bit. The unit is very nice and easy to handle, and using it for all these modes was simple and effective. I could not fault this unit at all; in fact, I would love to have one for use around the house.

Verdict

A well constructed unit that is very useful for on site work as well as around the home and the workshop. It is sturdy enough to take the rough and tumble of daily use and makes light work of the jobs I undertook with it. A simple addition of an adaptor makes the unit even more useful. Extremely user friendly and well worth the money.
