Does it work with the 18v battery?

Does this work with the batteries that come with the 18v tools? Or do I have to purchase the battery for this tool? Thanks.
Asked by: tedzo
No, the 18v batteries have a different type of connector, this only works with M12 batteries.

I have no doubt that Dremel bits will work with this tool. However, what I want to know is will other Dremel accessories like the plunge router base or the right angle or rotary cutting cutter head or drill press attachments or three jaw chuck and so on work with it? I have other Milwaukee 12V and 18V tools and would add this to my collection if it will accept Dremel attachments otherwise I may as well get the Dremel corded tool. Thanks.
Asked by: Hogie1207
I have the plunge router base, right angle cutter, rotary cutter, and 3-jaw chuck, and all work with this multitool. I do not have the Dremel drill press stand, but have a 3rd party drill press stand that appears to be identical and this tool also works with that.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool (Tool-Only) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from M12 rotary tool They need a not sure option for recommendation. Not too surprising the rotary tool is a little short on power at the lowest speeds but has plenty of power on setting 3 and above. I am not sure what is going on yet but I have 3 other M12 tools and have had no problems with the batteries. On the rotary tool one battery will not stay in. It vibrates out and the tool stops. Another battery the clip that holds the battery in place broke. I do not know if this is a problem with the rotary tool or another problem. That is why I gave it 3 stars. I would have given it more except for the battery problem which may have nothing to do with the rotary tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M12 12-VOLT LITHIUM-ION CORDLESS ROTARY TOOL I was looking for a rotary cut off tool that was more powerful than my Dremel tool, but not as powerful as my 18v Makita grinder/cut off wheel Tool. I found that in this Milwaukee tool; I'ts not too large, it has plenty of power for medium / moderate cut off and grinding tasks. And, I really appreciate its refined design: It has a "soft" start up so as not to twist and torque itself in your hand - which I think is a significant safety feature; less fatigue on your wrist as well. It also has the M12 battery that can be used on many Milwaukee items. I will definitely consider other Milwaukee items in the future.

It is a bit louder and dare I say has a bit more vibration than a Dremel. The chuck that came with the tool, a collet type, was a bit rough and didn't quite release easily, but I just used a Dremel branded collet and it works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Dremel Upgrade Picking the kit apart, the tool, battery, charger, cutoff wheels, and case are perfect. The collet and cutoff mandrel are pretty much junk. People describe numerous reasons why the tool vibrates so much (which it does), but it is all in the collet and mandrel. I through them out and bought Dremel replacements, and the problem went away. Anyway, the tool has 10x the power of my 3 corded Dremels combined. It is a lot bigger than them though, but this tool is meant to bridge the gap between Dremels and die grinders. It is a great tool to have.

This item was not available in my Home Depot store so I ordered it for store pick-up. It took a couple of weeks to get there, but the notification was prompt. I just was not sure when it would arrive.

I have not had a chance to use this tool a lot but it seems to have good power for a battery operated tool. I really like the portability. My only complaint is that it seems to vibrate more than my corded drill when the tool bit or accessory is slightly unbalanced.
