Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig General Manage 'Red". and crew; OUTSTANDING in Customer Service
I had purchased the Saw Max Tool Kit and also the various cutting tool attachments. They are and will be the best saw attachments without carrying a circular saw and changing the blades. The Asst. Manager "Red" and Tool Crew from Lisbon, Connecticut, went out of his way to have his tool corral personnel in purchasing the whole kit instead of the single unit. With that, he recommended the various attachments. Well worth the the effort from Red.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Larraine Great all around tool
I was doing some light remodeling in my kitchen and not wanting to deal with (nor had the room for) a standard circular saw, the Sawmax has been a great alternative. It's cut great through lumber (and has a depth guide up to 1.5"), metal, but tile is a bit of a disaster , even with their tile blade. For that you're still better off with a small manual tile cutter. Truly a huge time saver for me when compared to the regular hand or hack saw I would normally be stuck with. A great permament addition to my power tool set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucysdad The dremel saw max tool kit does what I wanted it to do
This tool is easy to handle and is great for making simple cuts. I used it to cut baseboard and chair rail wood trim. I wanted to get an extra blade to have on hand but the cost of a new saw blade was more than I anticipated (It was more expensive that a 7" steel blade).
I also used the saw max to cut plexiglass and the heat transfer from the saw blade to the blade guard would melt the guard if cutting for several minutes of continuous use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYnoob The perfect tool for small and medium cutting jobs!
Very solid product, easy to use, minor kickback. The only things I would improve are, 1) add an rpm selector for the blades for finer control, 2) improve the grip for smaller hands and use a rubberized grip for better snug and control and 3) better waste dust removal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mhal Dremel Corded Saw-Max Tool Kit
This tool is unique in what it can do and its why I bought it. I needed to cut through sheet rock to a specific depth (without cutting the stud behind it). Even though the tool was relatively expensive, it do save me a lot of work (using a razor to do the same job; cutting 64 feet of sheet rock). It was able to cut through the occasional nail that was in the cutting line. I found that the tool got quite hot and I'm unsure how well it will stand up.

Using the Saw Max to cut out the vertical styles on our kitchen cabinets to install full width pull out drawers. The wood cutting blade is thin and leaves the small gap I desired at the top and bottom of the vertical cabinet face style after reattaching it to one of the doors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cantonusa Great Ordering Experience
As this Dremel Saw Max was ordered as a gift, I can only comment on the ordering process. The product was easy to find on the H-D website and the ordering / checkout process could not have been easier. As a further positive, the saw arrived within a couple of days. A very satisfying experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wvgirl This was a used product! Very disappointed!
Unfortunately, I cannot give a review of the product because when my husband opened it Christmas morning, it was obviously already used! The blades had been used and there was saw dust in the case. He returned it to the store to find out they don't carry it anymore nor was it available online.

Being elderly, I think this saw is great for small jobs, it's easy to use and does the small jos with ease.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by housemender This tool is fantastic!
I purchased this saw after my old circular saw stopped working. I hoped for the best and was amazed with the flexibility this tool gave me. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you NEED one of these. It's easy to handle, light weight, and the blades are easy to change. Plan on purchasing the dust port adapter for the sawdust, but that is the only drawback. Loved it so much, I purchased one for a gift.

This was a birthday gift for my husband. He says it is just what he wanted and does just what it says it does. He is thrilled with it and he is a woodworker and does all kinds of other things that are handy around the house. A great tool for him.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TomC Ok, it worked.
Handy little saw. I used it to cut 3/4" plywood floor sheathing. It did the job. The blade dulled quickly- get extra blades. The saw heated up to where it was almost too hot to hold, suggesting it is underpowered or has a lousy heat dispersal system. Easy to maneuver and easier than using my 10" skill saw to do the same job. It produces a lot of fine dust. I probably did 8' of cuts of different lengths.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Very handy with lots of uses
This saw is great and has a lot of uses. The saw isn't meant to replace your typical circular saw. For large jobs use the regular circular saw. This saw has been great for drywall, old ceramic bathroom wall tile, plywood projects and sheet metal. If you expect it to do the job of a sawzall forget it. It does work very well for what's it's meant to do and is a great addition to complement my other saws. For those complaining about short blade life, use the proper saw for large jobs. For those complaing about it getting hot...it gets warm but that's not because of being under powered it's because this thing has a great deal of power, maybe too much for the small housing it is enclosed in. Be careful the first time you turn it on and make sure you are holding on to it, it is strong and has a lot of torque. I would recommend this to anyone who knows how to use the proper equipment for a particular job.

This product was a great purchase for me while remodeling the two guest bedroom closets. I hung bypass doors and learned that I needed to cut about an inch off of the bottom of each door. I did not feel the need to purchase a full blown saw, because I only needed it for this project and I do not know how to operate a large saw. The saw worked great and I could see myself using this in the future.

I used the saw-max to reduce 4 by 8 sheet goods also cutting PVC pipe. Also to cut angle iron to make table legs. Saw-max does all I asked it to do. Good power, easy to use. I love it.

I received the SM20-01H for a Fayhers Day gift in 2013. My Son and I both love the functionality of the size and power of this tool. We have both used it on numerous occasions with very good results.
There is ONE issue: the kit comes with the miter guide which is great, BUT I cannot find the DUST PORT plastic piece that I see in the advertising. Where is this attachment?
The picture shows a cutting bar that was made using the SM20

Highly recommend this product to anybody with small jobs. Flush cuts dry wall easily, along with a host of other materials. Best part was, I lost the outer washer, called customer service, they were fast, courteous and then sent me the replacement washer at no charge. Customer service like this ensures that future tool needs will always focus on a Dremel product first.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DOUG Very handy
Used the Saw-Max rather than a full size circular saw on an interior remodel of a hunting cabin. Cut paneling, trim and baseboard with ease. Much more user friendly than a circular saw for this project. Be sure to wear goggles, as the sawdust tends to fly. I used the multi-use blade to cut wood, and I would like to see a thinner more precise blade for making precision cuts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Islanderneil Outstanding tool that functions as it was intended.
I am very happy with the purchase of the Dremel Saw Max Kit. It made cutting the sheet metal on my '66 Chevelle very easy. When I got home and unpackaged it I found that the hadle for the carrying case was missing. I went to the Dremel site and sent them a message and they sent me a new case no charge. No complaints for this purchase.

I purchased this saw to cut plastic floor tiles. Well, being a salesmen, I had no idea the speed of the saw melted the titles.. Not the saws fault.. Just a duh moment..
I plan to use on other jobs around the home..overall good value from HD..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrtoolguy Great tool and made by a good company
I don't know about some people but who runs a saw for a half hour continually? Dah! it is a handy tool that takes the work out of special jobs and situations/not replacing a rip saw or wet saw come on folks use the tool for what it is intended and it works and will work well for a long time. ALWAYS buy spare blades. I have them for all my saws.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HomeImprovementProject OVERPRICED AND BLADES ARE GARBAGE
I purchased it to install laminate flooring and floor molding. I used it a total of 2 days (installing 500 sq feet of 10mm laminate) and had to change the blade 3 times to complete the project. I would not recommend this saw to anyone whose looking to do work. Its okay for play. P.S. - The accessory corner cutter is horrible as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xfylz69 Like a knife thru butter.
Saw-Max is the 5th addition to my collection. Not having space for larger type tools, Dremmel is perfect for all my crafting/diy needs.
Easy to use, easy to change blades, accessories were a nice addition to this set. Nice and comfortable grip.
Great for women or men to utilise and performs just as all dremmels do...FANTASTIC!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ralph Good product for the price
I used it to cut down wood shelves in the basement.
I would have had a hard time with a bigger power saw.
The only problem I had is that after running it for about a half hour continualy, It got really hot to the touch. If you
are using it for a short time one to 5 minutes at a time and then turning it off, and letting it cool down, it is fine.
