MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – September 8, 2011 — Dremel® is taking its oscillating tools up a notch. A new, high-performance tool, the Dremel Multi-Max™ MM40, allows users to tackle a wider array of oscillating applications with increased tool power and capabilities – making any task on a do-it-yourselfer or remodeler’s to-do list that much easier to complete.


The best-in-class Dremel Multi-Max MM40 boasts a 2.5 amp motor that delivers quick, efficient cuts, rivaling current top-of-the-line competitors at a fraction of the cost. Users also benefit from the tool’s innovative Quick Lock TM accessory change system that quickly and securely facilitates accessory changes without a hex wrench or other equipment, eliminating any worry or frustration over losing the tool’s screw and washer. The MM40 operates between 10,000 to 21,000 OPM and offers a soft-start feature that minimizes abrupt starts and provides a feeling of control as the tool ramps up to the desired speed. Electronic feedback also ensures users can power through the toughest applications.

The tool also features strategic vent locations and an improved fan design, enabling the MM40 to run cooler and more smoothly than other oscillating tools for increased comfort when handling over an extended period of time. An extended length 7-foot rubber cord allow users to handle the MM40 with ease while cutting, sanding, scraping, grinding and removing grout in their homes or workspaces. The MM40 also boasts a new line of cutting accessories with expanded cutting width and depth that enables users to cut through more material in a shorter amount of time. These enhanced blades make precise cuts through tough materials such as hard woods, framing lumber and 2x4s, and continue to utilize the brand’s Quick Fit™ accessory interface, making accessory changes twice as fast as similar oscillating tool systems.

“I haven’t found a project yet that this tool doesn’t help me power through,” said expert craftsman Chip Wade, of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block” and “Designed to Sell.” “Its increased power and seamless accessory changes have quickly made it one of my go-to tools.”


The No. 1 area that homeowners would most like to update (30%) in 2011 is their kitchen*, according to a recent Dremel survey of American homeowners. The Dremel Multi-Max MM40 tool is a great resource for crossing popular kitchen projects off consumers’ to-do lists with ease.

Turn wooden cabinet into decorative glass-front cabinet

Americans who live in a home that is fewer than 25 years old are significantly more likely to want to change the décor (44%)*.  Remodeling kitchen cabinets to feature a glass front is a great way to add a little flare to the room:

  1. Detach cabinet door from cabinet. Attach the MM480 Cutting Blade to a Dremel Multi-Max MM40. Plunge the blade into cabinet door along outer line edge of the raised panel portion you wish to remove. (Recommended: Use the side of the panel or any molding as a straight edge. Follow trim line to maintain a straight, even cut)
  2. Working slowly, continue to carefully plunge the blade along all four sides of the interior panel until it is free from the door. Then, remove the wooden panel from the door
  3. Working from the interior side of the door, use the Dremel Trio™ with TR800 Straight Edge Guide and a TR654 Straight Router Bit to rout a recessed edge to place a glass panel into. Making multiple passes with an increased cutting depth to achieve the required depth is recommended
  4. Attach the MM14 Hook and Loop Pad and 240-grit MM70W Wood Sand Paper to the tool. Sand along cut lines to smooth any rough spots
  5. Turn over the cabinet door and insert glass panel into groove. Attach the glass panel to back of cabinet door using silicone adhesive or mirror mounting hardware. Once the adhesive has dried, reattach cabinet door to cabinet

The Dremel Multi-Max MM40 will be available at most hardware and home improvement centers nationwide in November. The MM40 will retail for a SRP of $139.99 USD and CAD.
