Rated 1 out of 5Â by frankinottawa DEAD AFTER 1 YEAR
Absolutely NO GOOD.
Died after perhaps 1.2 years of moderate to minimal use.(mostly minimal) The power cord has a short and only works when it wants to. It overheats after 5 minute use. It will not cut wood at all. Don't believe the hype or the name.
I am so disappointed.
I though that I bought Dremel quality. NOT!!!!. I will never buy again!
ps. Most people will leave a review after the first week...mine is after a year+....please be smart and read into this statement!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by willym Very useful tool
I have used this tool on several jobs from timing the edge of drywall with the chisel blade, cutting drywall with the half round saw, cutting wood in close quarters, and sanding a small BBQ ready for painting. It has performed very well. I should have bought one a long time ago.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mark Decent tool
This tool did all I needed and more. I do wish I had gone with the Rockwell though, but only because that one doesn't limit you to their own blades (it accepts Dremel, Milwaukee, etc.) Other than that, this is a great tool! Had mine for 9 months now.
frankinottawa: Of course it's overheating! It has an intermittent short! Fix the cord and ALL the symptoms you described go away. Vibration can cause a solder joint (where the cord actually connects within the tool) to come loose. I doubt Dremel x-rays the solder joints. If they did, add $50 to the price of the tool. Gonna happen from time to time; not the end of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MJPA Dremel is an outstanding choice and a hand full of muscle!
I reviewed the choices available at the store, and Dremel was a cut above in my opinion. I'm not a pro, just an amateur home DIYer. I tried removing some 40-year-old bathroom tiles, but was only able to remove small chips. This would have taken hours. This tool removed the tile in minutes and wasn't even breathing hard. The tool is a real workhorse, it never overheated, and the vibration was minimal. No hot gloves needed at all. Needless to say, those tiles were all glued down to the concrete pad. I haven't had an opportunity to use the other blades yet, but I'm looking forward to it! You're not going to find a better tool and accessories anywhere. Before I go, the ease of changing blades is awesome with the flip of a lever atop the Multi-Max and you're locked and ready to go! Try that with the other brands!
