Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating Tool: Review and Giveaway

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:

Dremel Multi-Max“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.”

Who knew?

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!

  1. Used it immediately upon receipt. Absolutely great tool for both homeowner and pro. DO not spend tons of cash on the “real name brand” as this Dremel version has all of the power and the tips and tools all fit both the Fein and the Dremel. I did a job that would have taken an hour trying to remove wood embedded in a window install in under a few minutes. Forget the time, the neat and clean cut and removal was great. Recommend this tool highly.

  2. The Dremel oscillating tool would kick start, well REstart our cabinet repair project. The kitchen cabinets were damaged upon delivery and we thought we could and would repair the cabinets in a jiffy. It’s just not happening.

  3. I have some polymer clay beads which need to be drilled and my cheap wanna be dremel from harbour freight stinks.

  4. The first project that I would love for my husband to tackle, is restoring an old cabinet that I had found.
    Thanks so much.

  9. They poured the concrete today for my husband’s workshop, so he could use the Dremel Multi-Max for all the inside work to be done once the shell is put up.

  10. The project that I would do first with the Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating Kit is to finish cutting out the plaster above my shower, and then replacing it with good green board (for water resistance) and then tiling over that!

  11. my husband has trim work to finish in the breakfast nook, and i would like to sand and refinish the stairs

  12. Hubby is a carpenter, but if I had a dremel, I would take the grout out of the bathroom around the tub and make him replace the old stuff we have there!

  13. I’d love to get one of these to start on a DIY project to build a look alike “Learning Tower”!

  14. I’m stripping a chair with alot off detail work that sand paper can’t reack; this would be perfect for it.

  15. I really want to finish my basement, so that would probably be the first project I’d tackle! Thanks for hosting!

  16. What to do first? I have a shower that needs re-caulking, and I’d love to use the Dremel to get the old caulk out. Then, I do a lot of sanding when I refinish yard sale furniture, and I hear the Dremel is great for curved areas and hard-to-reach spots. Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. I REALLY want a dremel for myself. lol! The first project I would do is to cut a hole in my husband’s desk so that we can manage the cords better!

  18. We are remodeling a 65 year old home and just purchased wood to put in a new wood floor in the kitchen and dining room so that would be the first project we would use it on.

  19. We have a bathroom remodel coming up and I’m sure that’s where I would use it first.

  20. I need to replace some broken tile in my bathroom the this Dremmel is the perfect tool for cutting the grout

  21. well just bought our first home some months back . I need some work done in the garage. think i will start with the making of some shelf space……

  22. There are so many projects this could be used for around my house. Old house means lots of home renovation projects:) From building sons closet to redoing the kitchen from top to bottom! Plus it could be used to make some wine bottle/glass holders for Christmas gifts! Never too early to get those started and what better tool to use?

  23. I don’t really have a project planned, but my husband works long hours and alot of out of town work, so this is something I could definitely use. It is so hard to find tools when he is gone, especially because he takes most of them with him. Thanks for this great giveaway.


  24. I would totally use the grout tip to take out a few of the animal tiles randomly placed in our backsplash! they are so corny and i want them gone! 🙂 the dremel looks like the prefect little tool to do that!

  25. There are so many projects that need to be done around my house that I can’t just pick one! I know from seeing the commercials on tv that this tool would be very helpful to me.

  26. I have a very old Walnut Dining Room set that I have been dying to strip and make look new…I love this table and chairs, they are so sturdy. But are close to 30ish years old and need a facelift.

  27. this would be for my husband and I would have him complete some little things like fix the shelf in the laundry room.

  28. I’d use it to bevel the corners of the kitchen counters. Too many people cutting that corner too quickly and too many bruised hips. The Dremel would be much appreciated!

  29. I would make myself a bench for on the front porch…one that stretched all around the front of our porch….

  30. The first project I would use this on is our remodeling of the upstairs bathroom. We need to put tile on around our bathtub.
