    Dremel Multi Max?

    Has anyone seen one of these yet? An editor for Woodsmith told me that they had a demo done a few months back and he was excited about it. I think it starts at $99 and he said it works with Fein mulitmaster attachments and the Dremel attachments should work with the Fein as well.

    I have some tile that I will be taking up and redoing this winter and the grout saw and sanding attachments would work great to get the floor prepped for new tile. I've used the Fein before and loved it, but the price tag was a little high for me...this might be just what I need. Hoping someone has some insight on it.

    I went to woodworking show in Detroit recently and tried the dremel, bosch and rockwell's new model the sonicrafter. Wanted to try the Fein but they didn't have a booth (didn't matter, wasn't gonna spend that kind of money anyway). After the demo I bought the rockwell-felt more solid. Like you, had a grout job to do. Got it home and naturally wanted to try it right away. Right away the start switch acted up, needed to turn off/on a number of times to get it to engage. Once engaged it ran and I started on the grout. The tool delivers, does a nice job. Called rockwell about the switch. Seven days later I received a new kit. Pleased with the tool and service.

    Five years ago I would have strongly stated to go with the Craftsman, but since their merger with KMart, it might just be me, but the power tools I have bought from them haven't held up and they just seem cheap. This does include the dishwashers and fridge I have bought in the past ten years from Sears. (I know, they aren't Craftsmen, but I was talking Sears)

    I was looking ar both the Bosch and Dremel at Hartville Hardware a few days ago, and while both are nice tools, neither seem as sturdily built as my Fein (mine is the older model, which I've had for about ten years). Of course, they only cost somewhere between a third and a half of what the Fein does.

    The accessories for the Dremel are clearly marked "Also fits Fein and Bosch." The Bosch aren't marked as such, but will also fit the Fein. In fact, I bought a Bosch sawbladefor $22.00 to use with my Fein. he Fein version of the same blade is something like $54.00.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    They are sure playing up the less vibration in their tools I'd like to try one but I haven't seen any on this island yet
