Dremel has been quite busy these last couple of months as they launched two new oscillating tools, the Saw-Max multi-purpose saw, and an updated Dremel 3000 rotary tool. They are now focusing on accessories and attachments, and have announced a couple of neat products.
Rotary Tool Accessories & Attachments
Remember the Dremel shield (model A550) that we discovered more than 6-months ago? It has reached production and will soon be available in stores for about $15.
Dremel is also releasing new sanding discs into the EZ Lock family, which eliminates the need for screwdrivers and miniature screws to change accessories. We’re HUGE fans of the EZ Lock system since it makes blade/bit swaps amazingly quick and easy. The sanding discs (EZ411SA, EZ412SA, EZ413SA) are designed to be twice as durable as non-EZ discs, while removing twice as much material, and will be available in 80 grit, 120 grit, and 240 grit versions. MSRP is $5.
Oscillating Multi-Tool Accessories
Dremel is also releasing new higher-performance cutting blades to match the new MM40 and MM20 2nd-generation oscillating tools. Included in the launch is the MM480 wood and MM482 wood/metal flush-cutting blades, which feature increased blade length and width that allow for quicker and easier cutting performance. MSRP is $18 and $19 respectively.
There will also be a MM452 BiM segmented saw blade, compatible with all of Dremel’s multi-tool models, that can flush-cut through wood and metal materials faster than other segmented blades. MSRP is $22.
