Hi, I have a dewalt corded oscillating multi tool 315 model with the quick change fitment. The tool is excellent but I’ve been offered some starlock blades. I appreciate that these do not fit but I was wondering if there are any adaptors available to fit the starlock blades.

All the info I can find about starlock says backwards compatible with dewalt using adaptor but I can find no mention of this adaptor online.

Thanks Marley

Stumbled upon them on eBay last night and they seem very reasonable for blades. I’ve been using the Erbauer ones that more than match the dewalt branded ones. Would be handy if I could find a starlock adapter though.

they may do one i thought you can ask them as they gave me one to make ryobi and bosh machines compatable
but suspect they are designed to stop you using an adapter hence being 3D
although you can use the hex bolt to affix blades under the head clamp in the pivot center

Dont know hat fitting the dewalt has. Mine is a Bosch with starlock.
Dont know if the older Fein is the same as a Dewalt... Axminster do an aaptor for that, Fein quick-in to Starlock...

Be aware there are different Starlocks, just to confue matters, Starlock, Starlock Plus, and Starlock Max.

I think the old Fein is the same as old Bosch before they both switched to starlock (don’t quote me as this is just what I’ve read on tinternet). Dewalt or at least the one I have need a cut out on the blade to slot into the work release but as above there are other options using the Allen bolt. I believe Dewalt share the fitment with Erbauer, Stanley, Worx and some others.

Absolutely, let’s standardise something but make 3 different varieties ::b I believe Starlock plus and Max are intended for more powerful tools.

its designed to force you to pay more
compatibility means competition and reduced prices
the one great improvement since the origional is the slot in the blade and the lever clamp :huray:
