Manufacturer: Dremel

Our reviews of the latest Dremel tools focus on their usefulness to hobbyists, DIYers, and makers. We let you know which products deliver helpful and innovative features. Dremel, once known for oscillating muti-tools, has now branched out into products like rotary tools, saws, and even 3D printers.

Dremel Saw-Max Handheld Circular Saw Preview

Dremel Saw-Max Handheld Circular Saw Preview

Dremel has been on an innovation kick these past few years, first releasing their Multi-Max Oscillating tool before anyone else (except the original patent, holder, Fein) and then coming out with their corded Trio multi-application tool. Well this October, the company is releasing their new Dremel Saw-Max, a one-handed, ergonomic handheld saw designed for micro-circular saw applications. The tool is aimed squarely at the DIY and hobbyist crowd, but pros may find it perfect for its extreme portability in making simple crosscuts and undercuts without the need for a miter saw or other cumbersome tools.

Dremel 8300-01 12V Cordless Multi-Max Oscillating Tool Kit Review

Dremel 8300-01 12V Cordless Multi-Max Oscillating Tool Kit Review

We were impressed with the original Dremel Multi-Max Oscillating tool – and to this day it remains one of our most trusted go-to tools in the Pro Tool Reviews arsenal. What makes the Dremel even more successful is the prevalence of its accessories, which can be purchased just about anywhere. That means that if you are in the middle of a job and you “spatula” your blade, you can run to the local home improvement warehouse and get a replacement. Try that with some of the more obscure brands. Now Dremel has released its Cordless Multi-Max Oscillating Tool and we couldn’t be happier. It takes the speed and agility of the original tool and cuts the cords. It allows the tool to be more and do more. What may come as a surprise to most is that it really doesn’t cost all that much more. It’s also not a replacement for the Multi-Max, but a different product that caters to a different user requirement. Dremel will continue to manufacture and offer both products.

Dremel Trio Kit 6800-01 Review

Dremel Trio 6800 Review

At this point we’d have to say that there is no reason not to have a few Dremel tools around the shop. The Trio is yet another product that is simply easy to use and handy for a variety of tasks, from sanding to cutting to routing. The trick with the Dremel is understand its target market. This isn’t a professional’s tool – simply because it’s flexibility precludes it from being the very best at anything that it does – but it IS extremely flexible, and provides a value that is almost unheard of and unseen in the marketplace. Like the MultiMax before it, this is one of those tools that makes a great gift for any DIY or enthusiast.

Dremel 8200-1 Cordless Rotary Tool Review

Dremel 8200 Cordless Rotary Tool Review

Dremel has been the leader in the rotary tool market for some time, and the introduction of the new 8200 Lithium-ion Cordless Rotary Tool kit means that they now have an even wider appeal. While their existing lineup, including the popular Dremel 4000-2/30 High Performance Kit, is very capable, the 8200 allows a portability not found in previous incarnations from the company. Partially, this is because their other cordless tools, particularly the 7.2V MultiPro and 4.8V MiniMite, all fell short when it came to power and longevity. Even the 10.8V, while technically very similar to the 8200 in power and capacity, carried the same 3-hour charge time for its Lithium-ion batteries. Now, Dremel has borrowed from parent company Bosch, integrating their 12V Max technology, and bringing its latest cordless rotary tool’s recharge time down to a manageable one-hour.

Rotary tools is what Dremel makes and now they are inching the bar higher with the release of their new High Performance 4000-2/30 Rotary Tool which comes with a bigger motor and over 30 accessories. The whole kit comes in a form fitting hard plastic storage case that keeps everything safe and organized when not in use. Outstanding performance and excellent quality are just some of the things we have come to expect from Dremel and this new Dremel High Performance Rotary Tool kit is no different.
