Dremel has recently come out with new dual interface OMT blades that fit a wider range of multi-tools, but that’s not all they’ve been working on.
On the heels of those new blades comes the new Dremel Edge-series blades, a money-saving replaceable cutting edge system of oscillating multi-tool accessories.
The new Dremel Edge-series oscillating blade system will include a starter set and 2 types of blades.
- MM400E starter set
- MM402E wood-cutting blades
- MM404E wood and metal-cutting blades
With the Dremel Edge-series blade system, you reuse the blade interface and only change out the cutting edge. This should result in monetary savings over time.
Downside: blade changes requires the use of a hex key. Dremel does provide you with a holder that might help make the hex key easier to find.
That said, it doesn’t look like the new Edge-series blades will require much more time when it comes to changing out blades.
Price: $20 for the starter set, $20 for 4pc blade replacement packs
This seems like it could be a convenience for some users. It’s got potential.
Me? I’d rather have tool-free blade changes, even if it meant extra cost.
