MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., July 18, 2011 – For the two-thirds of American homeowners planning to tackle a home improvement project in 2011*, their to-do lists just got easier thanks to a new Dremel® tool hitting store shelves this fall. Not only is the Dremel Saw-Max™ ergonomic and easy to use, it delivers unparalleled cutting capabilities that allow users to achieve one-handed, precise cuts making it a must-have for DIYers, home hobbyists and professionals alike.
“The Dremel Saw-Max is truly a revolutionary tool,” said expert craftsman Chip Wade of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block” and “Designed to Sell.” “It’s easy to handle and makes the somewhat daunting task of cutting unintimidating, empowering users to reach for it often whenever they need to make a quick, confident cut.”
The Dremel Saw-Max is reinventing cutting – the No. 1 Dremel accessory category – as consumers know it. A compact, handheld saw, the Dremel Saw-Max allows users to make precise, clean and straight cuts in a wide variety of materials using compact cutting wheels. At one-third of the size and weight of a traditional circular power saw, the tool enables easy, one-handed operation and allows for detailed work in tight spaces.
A versatile system of cutting wheels are quick to change and offer the ability to make straight, plunge or flush cuts up to 3/4-inch deep through wood, plastic, laminates and drywall, as well as sheet metal and wall and floor tiles. Perfect for applications such as installing baseboards and trim, replacing flooring, remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, repairing a roof, and installing wire shelving, the Dremel Saw-Max gives users the ability to cut easily and efficiently.
The Dremel Saw-Max will be available beginning in October at most hardware and home improvement centers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $129.99 USD and $139 CAD.
The top reason Americans choose their 2011 DIY projects was to replace worn out materials (48%)*. Using the Dremel Saw-Max with the SM500 Multipurpose Cutting Wheel makes installing a new laminate floor quick and simple – no matter how many flooring pieces need to be cut to size to fit against the wall or in a corner:
