1/3/11 – New Oscillating DIY and Crafts Tool From Dremel
1 March 2011
Dremel has launched the Multi-Max, a cordless oscillating tool with dedicated accessories for cutting, grinding, sanding, scraping and other tasks. The Multi-Max joins Dremel’s growing portfolio of Versatile Tool Systems which already includes the TRIO spiral saw, glue guns and an engraver – in addition to the company’s core rotary multi-tool range.
The Dremel Multi-Max system will appeal to both hobbyists and DIY-ers undertaking repair, modelling or restoration projects in a wide range of materials. The company says it has superb ergonomics and is a very comfortable tool to handle – thanks to low vibration and sound levels, the balanced weight and a soft grip zone. Its smaller accessories offer precision and, thanks to the QuickFit mechanism, can be changed twice as fast as other oscillating tools.
The speed is variable from 3,000 to 21,000 oscillations per minute for optimal performance and control. The ‘soft start’ ensures smooth operation and there’s an electronic brake for safe stopping. The Multi-Max is powered by a 10.8V Lithium-ion battery with Electronic Cell Protection which charges in just one hour and is interchangeable with the Dremel 8200 Multi-tool. A spare battery is even included to ensure downtime is kept to an absolute minimum. The Dremel Multi-Max system comes packed in a smart storage case. This toolkit contains the following accessories:
• a wood and drywall saw blade
• a wood and metal flush cut blade
• a hook and loop sanding pad
• three sanding papers for wood (60, 120 and 240 grit)
• three sanding papers for paint (80, 120 and 240 grit)
A wide range of accessories will be available separately, including a universal adaptor which allows all the accessories to fit other oscillating tools such as Fein, Rockwell, Bosch, Ridgid, Worxx and Masterforce.
