Dremel Cordless Multi-Max Oscillating Kit

I resolve to… get my husband the tools to tackle household repairs

My husband is a Dremel guy through and through and has been known to use a Dremel for work, household repairs, and even for helping me with craft projects.  In fact, when I first met him he was only 18 years old, but he already had a full set of Dremel accessories that could cut, drill, sand, scrape, grind, sharpen, and polish just about anything you could imagine.  I know this from experience, because I’ve imagined some pretty big projects over the years and each time his Dremel has come to the rescue.  

R03995v3 While my handy husband has amassed a pretty extensive tool collection throughout the years, in our last big home project we realized there was one tool that we really needed to add to our collection: an oscillating tool.   So, with Valentine’s Day approaching, I searched all the sale ads looking for a decent oscillating tool to wrap up for him and was coming up with nothing.  It was then that I heard that Dremel had entered the oscillating tool market with the release of the Multi-Max and knew it was perfect for us.

While the original Dremel is perfect for small, detail work, the new Multi-Max from Dremel is ideal for larger jobs while still giving you the same precision that makes it a Dremel.  Whereas most cutting tools utilize a rotating or spinning blade, an oscillating tool is unique because of the minute movements of the blade that oscillate from side to side. 

Untitled-1 copy This small amount of blade movement makes it easier to plunge into sheetrock, trim, and more with precision while keeping your cut steady.  Since you have such control over the Multi-Max, it makes it possible to use it on interior walls and painted trim work while it’s still mounted.  By allowing you to work without dismantling and by minimizing debris and dust, it makes for a much easier project overall and doesn’t leave your home looking like a construction zone.  

While this precision is especially important when making detail cuts, it also is really nice when sanding with the Multi-Max since it is so incredibly easy to control.  Where other sanding tools tend to move on their own and you have to work to keep them steady, the Multi-Max allows you to maneuver easily around items when sanding as well as concentrate on one area separately. 

Changing between all the included tools is also easy thanks to the quick change design of the accessories that allows you to cut, sand, grind and scrape.  Another feature we really loved was that you can attach the tools at varying degrees to the Dremel handle, allowing you to get in even the tightest spots easily.  This amazing ease of use makes the oscillating Multi-Max our absolute favorite tool to grab for just about anything we're working on.  

41mOm2sDnuL._AA300_ Featuring a powerful 1.5 amp motor, the Dremel Cordless Multi-Max Oscillating Kit can handle big tasks as well as small, and since it is cordless, it can go just about anywhere.  While there is a plug-in version available, I knew the versatility of battery power was right for us.  It even comes with two lithium-ion batteries so you will never have to abandon a job mid-project, something that I absolutely despise.  And, best of all, the Multi-Max even has a battery power light so you know exactly how much power you have left and only takes an hour to completely power up again. 

Located just below the battery indicator lights is an easy slide switch that lets you adjust the speed of the tool from 3,000 to 21,000 opm.  With this wide range of speeds at your disposal, you can quickly and easily adjust the motor to be at the right speed for the job at hand.  Since different materials require different speeds for cutting, this adjustment is key to maximizing the life of your tool without over working the motor.

Since I’ve got a list of projects about a mile long that I’m hoping to accomplish this spring, I’m thrilled we will be able to rely on the Multi-Max to get them all finished quickly, easily, and without having to completely remove more than is absolutely necessary to get the job done right.  But best of all, because it’s a Dremel, I know it is made with quality and even has an awesome two year warranty so I can use it with confidence. 

I think by now it is very clear that while I’m passing the Dremel off as a thoughtful present to my husband, I am definitely looking forward to our Multi-Max projects this spring.  The great thing is that even my husband is incredibly excited to start on my massive list now that he has a new tool to play with.  Ladies, that’s what we call a win-win.

  8. This would come in SO handy as we are remodeling our house that we bought in July. We have to redo the upstairs to relocate the bathroom, add trim to all the windows as we gutted the whole house, and so forth. These are all projects the Dremel would come in handy for!

  9. This would be the perfect tool to fix the hole in the guest bedroom wall from the doorknob. Filling it in with that spackling goop hasn’t worked. Think part of the drywall needs to be replaced and hubby wouldn’t have any excuses if he had this tool!

  10. Now there are tons of things I would have my hubby doing with this around the house too! This would totally help us complete getting all of our electronics cords hidden in the walls, we have lots of pesky corners and half walls. It would be perfect! Thanks for the chance!

  15. A few years ago my puppies chewed the end of the barrister. I’d use this to chop the end down and sand it. I’d also ise this to aid in my bathroom remodel.
