Sources at Dremel tell me that although the Multi-Max has only been out for a couple of years, the tool is selling like hotcakes to both DIYers and hobbyists. Maybe that’s because at around $100 in 2010, it has some features found on the more expensive Fein tools. The Multi-Max is rated at 1.5 amps, with a variable-speed (10,000 to 21,000 opm) motor and soft start. Electronic feedback circuitry (EFC) helps the tool maintain even power delivery under heavy loads. And, at under 2 lbs., it’s comfortable in the mitts.
Dremel equips the Multi-Max with its Quick Fit™ accessory changing system. To switch blades and most other attachments, you don’t need to completely remove the Allen bolt as you do with some other tools here. Just loosen it a few turns, and the attachment slips out through an open slot.
In addition to a hard case, Dremel packages the Multi-Max with a sanding pad, an assortment of sandpaper, a segmented circular blade for wood and metal, a flush-cutting wood blade and a flexible scraper. A variety of other attachments, including carbide- and diamond-coated grout and masonry blades, are also available.
