Featured Product — Dremel Multi-Max™ Oscillating Tool System

Removing grout can seem daunting. So can getting into a tight corner to refinish your wood floor. Not to mention adding a new or larger light switch. This month marks the official debut of the Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating Tool System – which can help you with all of the above tasks and more! To create the Multi-Max, we embarked on our most extensive research process ever. We hit the market hard and talked to you, our consumers, to meet your needs. The result is an exciting entry into the oscillating tool category.

While the Dremel brand is known for its rotary tools, the company is always ready to explore other categories that provide consumers with versatile, ergonomic, precise and compact tools. A multi-tasking tool that allows users to undertake a wide variety of tasks perfectly embodies the Dremel brand.

In addition to creating a revolutionary new oscillating tool, we wanted to design a line of accessories to accompany it – and make it all affordable for our consumers. Our accessories are high-quality and high-performance. Most of our accessories are designed to conform to our innovative QuickFit™ system, which allows for accessory changes twice as fast as competitive models. We developed unique scraper blades that not only contain scraping technology on the front of the blade, but on both sides as well. Our grout removal blades contain unique holes that produce less vibration and weigh less, but maintain the blades’ structural integrity.

From sanding and cutting to scraping and grinding, the new Dremel Multi-Max will help repair, remodel and restore with ease. With the Multi-Max, we’re delivering the same level of high quality our consumers have come to expect from the Dremel brand.

Expert Advice — What can you do with a Multi-Max?

From cutting wood to refinishing surfaces, the Dremel Multi-Max is sure to be your new “go-to” tool. With 12 different accessories, the tasks that this nifty new tool can handle seem endless. Below, four common do-it-yourself tasks are outlined – and they’re a whole lot easier than before!

  • Remove a broken tile: Tackle a somewhat daunting task with the Multi-Max and the grout removal blade. To loosen the tile, make several passes over the grout. Then, while applying light pressure, use the rigid scraper accessory to loosen the piece of tile. Finally, use the 60 grit diamond paper to remove the thin set before cleaning the area of any remaining debris.
  • Cut an opening for an electrical outlet: A common task during remodeling and renovating projects--it is precise and easy to cut drywall for an extra electrical outlet with the Multi-Max with little clean-up required. First, turn off power to any outlet you are extending and make sure no electrical wiring, vents, or pipes exist behind the wall you are cutting. Measure and mark the dimensions of the opening on the wall. Using the MM450 Wood and Drywall blade at maximum speed, cut the marked line. Repeat cut on each side of the measured section of drywall until the opening is complete.
  • Remove vinyl flooring: Using the Multi-Max with the rigid scraper blade, set the tool to a medium speed setting. Use a side to side motion with the tool under the vinyl flooring, pulling up excess material with your free hand. Remember to keep the blade flat to the surface to prevent gouging the subflooring. Tip: Coat the rigid scraper blade with petroleum jelly to keep the flooring adhesive from sticking to the blade.
  • Remove caulk: The Dremel Multi-Max is just the tool to remove old, unsightly caulk quickly and easily. Mask off the work area above and below the caulk line with painter’s tape to prevent scratches. With the MM610 Flexible Scraper Blade tightened in the tool and the tool set at low speed, work the scraper blade between the wall and the caulk. Make sure the flexible scraper blade is bent 30-40 degrees to prevent the mounting screw from making contact with the wall or sink. Scrape the length of caulk between wall and the caulk. Next, scrape the length of caulk between tub or sink and the caulk. Peel away the loose caulk, clean the area of any remaining residue with rubbing alcohol and then re-caulk.
