The Dremel Saw-Max is reinventing cutting as you know it. It’s powerful enough to cut through any material and versatile enough to make complex cuts still ergonomically intended and lightweight to be able to control with one hand. The Dremel Saw-Max allows you to cut with confidence because you know it’ll get the job done and get it done right.
I am a pretty competent do it yourselfer, I have owned Dremel merchandise in the past and generally been happy with them. The tool itself is pretty nice. It feels hard, has lots of power, doesn’t look or feel cheaply made. It came in a nice case, had 4 blades etc (keep this in mind). I bought this as part of a restoration project in which I was putting down hardwood floors, its major use could be to undercut door moldings. The one blade I knew I could use the most was the ‘flush cut’ blade. That is a carbide ‘multi function’ blade with a drop center, advertised as being able to cut all types of stuff. I had to undercut 8 doorways, cut rectangular holes for the HVAC floor registers and trim the bottom of a cabinet so my refrigerator could fit. Surely this could not be a problem with a good quality tool. It took 3 blades (as well as the one that came with it). At 24. 99 each. I was shocked at how the 1st one got dull so fast. I thought the carbide was to get clogged with wood debris, so I softly wire brushed the carbide chips with a brass brush; no luck. I bought another blade, it wore out super fast, too. I thought that was caused by the aluminum oxide in the urethane wear surface of the hardwood flooring, I was able to finish all those cuts although the blade could get HOT. That was late at night, could not just run out and purchase another one. The next day I bought the 3rd blade. After undercutting three doorways the last blade was smoking because it was wearing through the wood rather than cutting, it really set off the smoke alarm. That’s unacceptable. I paid 129. 00 for the tool as well as the blades and the case, and it cost another 50 for two more blades.
I have used this tool to cut some things so far and it has performed well. I am working on a flooring project in our kitchen where I used it to size underlayment, then used it to cut the hardwood (laminate) floor panels also. It provided a good/correct cut and really helped speed up the project. I also hooked it up to a shop vac to help keep down the dust in my kitchen. In general, this saw is easy to use particularly in tight spaces, and it has a ton of power (more than the other Dremel tools I own). I also used it to cut some metal conduit and was amazed with the easy the cut using the abrasive wheel. I have a bathroom tile project on the list to finish before the holidays, so I’ll get to attempt the diamond wheel out. So far, I think this thing is built well enough to manage anything I put in front of it. One other thing to talk about is that the kit holds 4 accessories which allowed me to tackle these jobs without buying costly blades now. Great value. Included 2×4 Cutting Guide, dust extraction adapter, 2 carbide wheels (one which cuts flush) and a diamond wheel for tile. I have spent 25+ on a diamond wheel alone in the past so it is nice to get the freebie. Greatly suggested.
Received mine and found all the negatives stated are true. The shoe is useless for straight or miter cut use with any other than the guide made by Dremel. On the left side of the unit the edge of the shoe has a 45 degree chamfer making it impossible to ride along a metal or plastic saw guide unless its at least 1/4″ tall. On the right side the shoe is 2 and 1/4″ from the blade so add that to any measurement you make to use a clamp on guide. Also the cut depth lock limitations the thickness of any guide use on the left to about 1/4″ max. The shoe pivot point has a little slop in it so the shoe isn’t going to stay properly aligned to the blade or the blade guard on the left side. You see for a flush cut you have to rest the saw on its left side where the shoe and blade guide are supposed to get you a flat surface to guide the blade. That said the shoe and blade guide should project equally and squarely, parallel to the blade. Too much slop so it does not. I have played around with it and it works OK free hand but do not annoy purchasing one if your wanting to cut 2X4’s. Your much better off with a full size round saw for that kind of task. For the money you could think they may have put on a more thought out shoe made of aluminum with the same for the blade guard. At least it would not catch on fire cutting metal. I bought this thing to re-side my home with Hardie board fiber cement siding. What made it nice was the dust collection system that is fitted to it. I will add to this review when I see how it performs on cutting fiber cement. 12/1/2012. So far I have found this man does pretty well free hand cutting 1/4 inch paneling and vinyl siding. Yaaa Hooo. A real SuperSaw Contender.
