MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – November 1, 2010 — Using an oscillating tool just got easier. Thanks to the new Dremel Multi-Max Universal Adapter™, users of any type of oscillating tool can now utilize the Dremel brand's patented Quick Fit™ oscillating accessories. With faster accessory changes and a first-of-its-kind pin design that keeps accessories in place during use, the Universal Adapter allows oscillating users to spend less time setting up their tool and more time repairing, remodeling and restoring.
"Consumers are continually demanding increased functionality from their power tools," said Andrea Ash, vice president of marketing, Dremel. "As a brand built on versatility, we're happy to introduce an accessory that will allow users of all oscillating brands to utilize our unique Quick Fit accessories for fast and easy changes and quality results."
The Dremel Multi-Max Universal Adapter allows all Dremel Multi-Max™ accessories to be used with all of the current oscillating tools on the market including brands from Fein, Rockwell, Bosch, Craftsman, Rigid and Masterforce. As the first pin fit adapter in the market, the Universal Adapter prevents accessories from sliding or loosening during use, resulting in a more efficient and precise project.
Dremel currently offers a wide variety of oscillating accessories, including cutting, scraping and grout removal blades, as well as sanding and grinding pads. All accessories, except for sanding pads, utilize the Dremel brand's innovative Quick Fit™ accessory system, which allows users to change accessories in less than half the time competitive systems require. The Quick Fit system features slotted accessory connections, instead of an enclosed blade, enabling users to swap out accessories without removing the clamping screw and blade washer.
Beginning in October, the Dremel Multi-Max Universal Adapter will be available at most hardware stores and home improvement centers nationwide. It will retail for the suggested price of $4.99 USD.
