Now is the time to tackle those little household fixes before all your family and friends descend on your abode. Make minor repairs easy with these two Dremel tools in your toolbox.
Two Dremel tools every homeowner needs around the house. Tackle most basic household jobs using the Dremel Mulit-Max Tool and Cordless Screwdriver.
Tighten all the loose screws, fix up that crumbly grout, make all the repairs easier and faster with these Dremel tools. They make a great gift for new homeowners or that handy person who needs a set of easy to use multi-functional tools.
Let’s start with the Multi-Max 3.5AMP variable speed corded oscillating tool because it’s the powerhouse of these two Dremel tools. I can honestly say this MM35 version is even better than the previous multi-max I featured here. I recently used the wood and metal flush cut blade to remove a section of wood rot at the base of the garage trim.
The smart folks at Dremel have made this Multi-Max Oscillating Tool with a tool-less blade change even easier than the previous lift and swivel mechanism. You simply twist the knob towards the unlock symbol to loosen the blade. This allows for faster blade changes and makes repositioning the blades much easier.
Then depress the blue button which allows for one handed operation while the quick-hold interface keeps the new blade in place. Twist the knob again in the opposite direction towards the lock symbol and you’re ready to go.
The Dremel Multi-Max is ergonomically optimized with a soft grip for comfort and control. The slim size and weight allow for easy operation and precision control.
The kit includes the following items:
- oscillating tool with 7′ cord
- storage bag
- 1 MM435 drywall jab saw blade
- 1 MM482 wood and metal flush cut blade
- 1 MM14 hook and loop pad
- 6 MM70W sanding sheets
- 3 MM70P sanding sheets
The variable speed controlled by the blue dial at the base allows speeds from 10K to 21K oscillations per minute. This Dremel had no trouble cutting through the wood trim below and the extra-wide 3.2° angle of oscillation delivers fast and precise cuts.
A nice, straight cut to remove the wood rot. I inserted a new piece of composite to match up with the existing wood trim and installed new moulding. After a little paint you can hardly see the repair.
Moving on to the second Dremel tool every homeowner should consider and I sure hope you get one soon for all the toy assembly that’s about to take place. The Dremel GO 4-volt lithium cordless screwdriver is 4x more powerful than any existing screwdriver of the same size and form.
The Dremel GO cordless screwdriver is battery powered and operates on an intuitive push and go system. Simply push down to start the rotating and the screwdriver will do the rest of the work. It’s very precise and with an intellingent E-clutch it stops when you want it to stop.
I guarantee you will be installing batteries in a few items this holiday season in addition to toy assembly. Make it easy and keep the Dremel GO screwdriver on hand and ready to go. The USB charger makes charging fast and convenient plus it’s safely covered with a plastic flap so no dust or debris gets into the port. You can control the power speed using the red dial at the base. For example if you’re repairing a delicate electronic part consider a lower speed for less force.
Included in the Dremel GO cordless screwdriver package:
- charger with USB cable and adapter
- 7 bits in holder (PH1, PH2, H5, R2, S6, T20, T25)
The bits stay secure in their magnetic holder until you’re ready to use. And the Dremel GO is also capable of reverse power mode to remove screws.
Makes a great gift idea and one that should be opened early to assist with all the other gifts and items on the to do list before guests arrive!
Any Dremel’s under your tree this year?
