****o i recieved the new multi-max for christmas its great.i used it to install laminate flooring and it worked flawlesly.but tring to remove a 3x3 area of tile using the s****er blades hasnt worked out very well.the blades get hot very quickly and will snap of around the mounting holes on the unit head.have broken two already and the local lowes and home depot only order these a couple at a time.so naturally they are always out of them .

I received the Multi-Max for Christmas as well. As with the rotary tool, I find that you need to take it slow and not push the tool to much. It is better to let the blade do the cutting on its own. As soon as you feel that there is no resistance you can add a little pressure and let the tool work for you.

Thanks,

I really hate to write this reply. I bought the MultiMax as an alternative to spending a lot more on the Fein Multi Master. The Multi Max ran hot right out of the box and didn't seem to have a lot of power.

After working with it for about 20 minutes, it seized up and would not run any more. I am very disappointed because I have several Dremel tools and love their products. This one does not seem to live up to the Dremel name.

The tool will go back and I guess that I will be draining my bank account and buying the Fein tool.

To save 200 bucks I would send the Dremel in for repair. $100 vs $300 is a no brainer.

JPH,

Buy the Fein Multi-Tool. Better motor, better blades, better selection of blades and Sears sells Craftsman blades that will fit it, they will not fit the Dremel.  I can buy a 2 pack of plunge cut blades from Sears for $12.99 and they cut wood and metal. You get one Dremel plunge cut blade that cuts wood only for $12.99.
