Very useful tool. I like the one I have and when i use it there is no other tool I have that would work most of the time. I like it for drywall and have other tools that would work but this one is easier to use. Also for plywood or other wood holes I need to make for electrical outlets or whatever.

It is very useful for cutting out boards already in place.

Mine is a different brand that was here a bit cheaper. Not that you could find it cheaper again. Less powerful ones are cheaper. Not sure that makes sense unless you would hardly ever use it. Perhaps if you were to only use it for drywall.

I have one of these and they're wonderful. Really good at straight cuts with lots of angles too. I was much more accurate with this than with my dad's jig saw.

It does a surprisingly nice job at sanding, and through wood, I got good life out of dremel carbide blades. I buy the 3 packs on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-MM4...dpSrc=srch

Anyone have good success with any generic blades as they look to be a lot cheaper.
I've bough generic sanding paper and had good performance.

The only generic blades I have had decent luck out of are the Performax blades from Menards, and they aren't anything to write home about. Rockwell blades have been good. Harbor Freight blades are junk, but I knew that before I bought them.

I gave up on dremel after a couple of the "raised notches" that hold the blades on the on their MM45 oscillating tool broke off after about the 3-4th time using it. Blades don't stay on anymore no rendering it useless. Already outside of the warranty period and a new head cost nearly as much as a new tool. I bought a 20v deWalt and it's been awesome.

Definitely the lowest price I have seen for this multi tool. Will be returning the one I bought from HD for $30+ dollars more (I thought that was a great price) as I am still in the return window! Thanks OP.

Multitools (vibromagics) are an absolutely essential part of any tool kit for building, remodeling, construction work. I've had three Harbor Freight ones, which are decent, a Bosch which is better and a Porter Cable 20V which is decent. This one looks like it might just be better than others I've seen.

This looks to be a good deal. However, Rockwell is the favored brand of oscillating multi-tools. They are known not only for reliability but also their compatibility with any brand of blades.

Saw the video. So this is safe then using a circular saw?

I would argue that Fein is the favored brand of oscillating tools, given their history, power, and quality. Having just bought a MultiMaster 350 last week I wonder how this Dremel compares though? The MultiMaster 350 is rated at 3.0 Amps lol, and this Dremel is rated at "7" Amps.


The Fein blows away my old Dremel MultiMax though, holy crap. Despite drawing twice the power it runs considerably more quietly, and the vibration damping is incredible.

Still have an old sonicrafter, pre snap lock system. Don't think I'd upgrade to this. While the more powerful motor and larger cut angle is nice, it's about 60% heavier than most other multitools and has no vibration dampening.

I think I'd go with sonicrafter f80 or fein 350 if I were to upgrade, and probably the f80 because I could probably pick it up for about $100. Someone actually posted it for $90 on Amazon back in December, and it got no love.

The Rockwell f80 or the 350 you bought would be the way to go. Both have vibration dampening. The dremel weighs more than another pound, is larger and has no dampening built in. I don't think I'd upgrade to one that doesn't have it.
