Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alleycat The Saw-Max tool and blades work well for occasional handyman jobs
I am a handyman, maintaining several homes and a condo. The Saw-Max is really handy for cutting a variety of materials. I just used it to plunge cut openings for additional soffit vents in my home into 3/8-inch thick in-place plywood facia material. One-handed cutting was needed as I was working from a ladder 24 feet above grade. I used it recently to plunge cut a square hole into the sheet metal of a cold air return using this tool, it working well.
This 12-blade set is a good way to get full use of the Saw-Max tool, the blades having a full array of cutting applications including wood, metal, plastics, tile, masonry and ceramics. The case included is a handy way to organize the blade storage and to track what you have on hand. As far as these blades themselves are concerned, they have fairly short lives, making them a bit expensive and geared for small jobs. Buying a set like this helps reduce the cost per blade. I obtained my Saw-Max with the relatively short blade life as an expectation, that overcome by how versatile and handy the tool is.

I own my own hvac company. I use the tool for alot of reasons especially in sheet metal. But the metal blades dont last that long and the blades really has problems with 26 gauge sheet metal. The last three packages at least one blade the center pops out as soon as take it out of package.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norm A "must have" assortment of cutting wheels for your Saw-Max
The metal cutting blade cut quickly & smoothly thru corrugated tin siding. The Saw-max keeps the cutting wheel at the right depth preventing excess wear on the cutting wheel. The masonry cutting wheel cut quickly & smoothly thru fire brick. I had no problem cutting thru the top & bottom of the 1.25" thick fire brick, since the saw-max cuts to a 0.75" depth. The wood & plastic cutting wheel labored cutting thru 0.5" plywood, but easily cut the lid off of a 55-gallon plastic rain barrel drum. I had no tile, so I didn't use the tile cutting wheel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fisher4men Great product but too much extraneous
I ordered 5 units of Dremel Max Saw blade sets. The reason for this was twofold. First, is the price of the Dremel Saw Max wood blades individually are very high. Second, the sets do not appear to be available year round at the price offered during the Christmas season when Home Depot puts these sets out at significantly less than half the normal price. I planned ahead even though there are many blades in the sets that I simply will never use. Regarding the usable blades, I love the Dremel Saw Max and how the saw works. Having the spare blades available when they are needed at a significantly reduced price only happens during the Christmas season so I stocked up. The Dremel Saw Max is user friendly, easier to use than a heavy circular power saw, much lighter in weight, produces very reliable/accurate cuts due in part to the Dremel Saws exemplary design, and the kerf is minimized relative to a circular saw. The Dremel Saw Max and blades make for an easy to use saw that yields reliable cuts. For the smaller job it is perfect and my tool of choice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dalek builder Great saw..... Horrible life on blades.
I bought the saw max recently and on one not so big project, it's taken 6 blades!!! I really wish you guys would create blades that would last longer, maybe a toothed or jagged edge coated with the existing materials for the wood blade..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cooljul Definitely a "go to" tool!
My husband LOVES this tool! It is now on his list of the most favorite tools to "go to" for small jobs. He used it just recently to cut down new stair treads that we installed in our home.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dopavope2 good product but pricey
Love the saw max, easy to use for lots of projects but the blades are a bit pricey and it was hard to find the blade I wanted (metal) without having to buy a whole kit of blades
