I wouldn't, it would take forever. Get some Goo Gone, not Goof Off, and spray it one the old vinyl glue wait about 10-15 minutes and the take a regular floor scraper and scrape that junk up. It's the best way I've found. Wear gloves though cause the stuff is really sticky and FLAMMABLE. Good Luck

Hi, good question. I am assuming the adhesive is dry and not sticky just a pain to remove with a standard hand tool. I removed vinyl flooring from my kitchen before putting tile down and I used this tool. There is a scrapper blade that works great this job however do not expect this to be a 5 minute job, take your time and let the tool do the work don't try to force it through. Give the tool and yourself a rest after 10 to 15 minutes of use and constantly clean the blade as the adhesive will get a bit sticky with the heat being produced from the high speed of the blades movement. Of course turn the tool off and unplug when cleaning the blade to be safe.
I had great luck with this and much easier than a hand scraper for sure. Good luck and take your time.
All the best;

While you might be able to use this tool to do the job it would, in my opinion, not be the best tool for the job. Get a hand plane if you need only a small amount removed.

Bill,
let me start off by saying that I am not a building professional, but do about 95% of my own home repairs, construction and maintenance. If your doors are wood, more than likely high humidity is causing them to swell slightly. The Jobmax 3, although a great tool would not be my first choice for trimming the doors. I would take a look to determine where the binding is occurring (side, top or bottom). I have had the same issue especially when installing replacement doors. After determining where the binding is occurring, I would simply take a good random orbital sander with some 60 to 80 grit sandpaper installed and remove material from the door until your binding is no longer an issue. If you doors are painted, you will probably see where the paint has been worn off from the areas that are binding. The top and side will be easy to access but if the binding is at the bottom, you will need to remove the door to sand the bottom. If you have metal doors, and a wood frame the same principle would be applied. Sand the frame where you see the scuffing from the binding.
In regard to the Jobmax 3, as I said it is a great tool but i have used it to primarily cut under door jambs and to trim under baseboards. It does have the ability to sand with the right attachment. I hope this information helps.
Regards,
Steve

Answer: 
Hmm, not my choice of tool. I just did the same to a door with my Makita KP0800K planer. That is the correct tool for that task. With multiple passes removing a little each pass, the excess material can be reduced to allow the door to close. This multi-tool, as any multi-tool, is more difficult to control for tilt and up/down. Just what you don't want at the top of a door.

While not an ideal planer, you can take off material with this tool. If your door has merely sagged, you might find that taking a little material off the upper hinge(s) backing will serve you better.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 208 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by missing parts This is a very useful and versatile tool. Makes it very easy to work in and around door molding, baseboard molding etc.. The led light that shines on the work you are performing is a nice feature. Hand fit is nice and there isn't an excessive amount of vibration when using the tool. The variable speed is also nice as you can make more precise cuts in very tight areas. The only real negative I had was that the tool which I ordered on-line was missing parts. I could immediately tell that the tool had been returned as some of the plastic bags containing parts had already been opened. and the tool itself looked used. I went through the hassle of taking it back and the store immediately gave me a "new" tool. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I had thought I have several Rigid tools that I love. This is Not one of them. I purchased this tool to help cut subflooring only in the corners where my flush saw cannot reach. I figured it would easily cut through the planked 1X6 subflooring. It worked great at first. Then, the blade quit oscillating. The motor worked fine but the head would not perform. I returned to home depot and they happily allowed me to exchange it for another as I only had it for 2 days. The next day I get the new tool out and start using it. It worked for about 5 minutes and The same issue occurred again. I took it back to home depot today and got a refund. I really like the Rigid Brand for the lifetime warranty. However, I will not purchase another oscillating tool from rigid. April 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy After about 20 minutes of sanding, the rubber came loose from the metal attachment piece on the sanding pad. Took it back to Home Deport and exchanged for another. The exact same thing happened, again, after about 20 minutes of sanding. The 2 pieces are glued together with a very small amount of glue. Apparently, when the sanding pad heats up from friction, the glue breaks down and the 2 pieces separate. Definitely would not buy this product if plan on using it for sanding. Home Depot refunded my money with no problem. March 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY USEFUL TOOL Got a vanity to add and want to cut out the baseboard to slide it in - this is the tool. Tiling a floor and need to raise the door molding a quarter inch - this is the tool. Lots of other places this thing works best - these are just examples. If you're into any noticeable DIY status, get one of these. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved a lot of time and aggravation I can't imagine trying to trim the door casings without this. I have done so before, but never again! I can hardly wait to get other accessories to use with this handy tool. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Multi Tool Love this tool. Registration was simple online, just make sure you enter in the correct info otherwise it will kick back and require you to mail in the receipt. I just resubmitted it with the correct info and all was well! Had an issue with the adapter breaking but called Ridgid and they shipped me two new adapters right away! I find myself trying to find things to use this with now! Buy it, and register it within 90 days and your solid! March 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money I really like the design of this saw; LED light, squeeze trigger, variable speed. It stopped working after 60 days. Its under warranty, but the rigid warranty is a joke! It costs $20 to have it diagnosed (pay up front) and then refunded when determined it is a warranty issue. I was then informed it would be ready in 4 weeks, maybe 3. This is for a $79 tool that is 2 months old. I will not be buying another rigid tool. Oh, and the motion activated security camera screens that are in the power tool aisle really drive me crazy! February 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for the money I had never owned an oscillating tool. I had no idea how versatile they are. I really like the variable speed control on rhis model and the relatively quick change ability on the tools. Plus it came with a lifetime warranty. March 15, 2016
