Flowers? eh. Chocolates? eh. Sappy Cards? Not so much. After 10 years of marriage, I know not to buy my husband any of these things for Valentine’s Day. But if you wave power tool in front of his face, he’s mine forever! So, when I had the chance to let him test out the new Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating Tool, I knew he would be thrilled!
But, let’s face it, I do not know my power tools, so I needed to read up a bit before doing this review. Here’s what I learned from the website:
“Oscillating tools are compact, yet full-featured multi-tasking tools designed for a wide range of home projects, especially repair, restoration, installation, remodeling and renovation work. A variety of blades attach to the tip of the tool and oscillate from side to side at high speeds in a small arc so that the blades appear to be vibrating. By switching out the blade, oscillating tools can be used to tackle a wide variety of applications and materials, including wood, laminates, metal, grout, adhesives and drywall. Many people know that oscillating tools cut and sand. What they might not know is that they can be used for so much more, including grinding, scraping, flush cutting, plunge cutting, caulk removal, grout removal and more.”
So what makes the cordless Dremel Multi Max so special? My husband, much like a kid in a candy store, ran around the house looking for projects to finish (and we certainly have no lack of uncompleted projects in this house). He first used it in our tiny Master Bathroom to trim baseboards. He noted that the Dremel allowed him to work comfortably in tight spaces. He moved on to the porch to sand down a wooden bench before volunteering to replace the wooden rails on our Mardi Gras float.
My husband also liked the organization of the carrying case which allows space for extras. The charge indicator which monitors battery life and the rechargeable 12VMAX Lithium-ion battery helps finish projects quickly. Overall, he absolutely loves his new toy!
The Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating Kit can be purchased at Amazon.com for just $124!
