Sorry, Dale, no plane ticket to the Caribbean this week.
Thanks all for some really helpful suggestions.
Can you tell us more about this magic vibrating dragon slaying tool of yours? Pictures or a link to the product?

What happened to the self reliant sailor? You had the tool on board and did not try it? Some sailors!....Dale

Re: We just cannot get it apart

Capta .... when you put this back together and to prevent the problem in the future, consider to apply a liberal coating of "NOALOX". Noalox is 'the machinists' standard for corrosion prevention of especially aluminum and 'red metals' (which contain a few % of aluminum).

Re: We just cannot get it apart

aeventyr60: The original:
FEIN MultiMaster Start Q MultiMaster - Best.-Nr. 72294264090 - FEIN Power Tools Inc.

Many, many others now. All the way from Dremel to cheap Chinese knock-offs.

It is The Freakin Tool to have when you need to do what it does. The scraper is extremely useful. It is fantastic for undercutting door trims and jambs when installing hardwood flooring (in a non-floating house)

Re: We just cannot get it apart

The scraper is also useful for separating things that have been glued on with 5200 such as cleats, lifeline bases, hand holds, etc. It not only cuts but the friction causes heat which softens the material. just be careful of the screw that holds the tool on as it can mar the finish on fiberglass or wood. I usually put a piece of tough tape over it if I'm working close to the material.

The retired Dr. next to me recommends anhydrous lanolin to keep parts from welding together. You can get it at a drugstore. I've started using it but I haven't had it on anything long enough to recommend.

Glad you got your parts disconnected.

Re: We just cannot get it apart

Anhydrous lanolin is also the best hand cream that you can get...

Re: We just cannot get it apart

Lanolin is an old trick for the threads of turnbuckles and the like - it's as waterproof as it gets but it's sticky stuff.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Honestly, I feel like a dope. It is one of those incredibly useful tools, that sits in the locker for years, until the right sort of job comes up. But being a relatively new tool, all it's possibilities aren't always apparent.
The one we have is like the FEIN MultiMaster, mentioned by gptyk.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
