Sure does. Multitools are great. I have the corded and battery models and they are used quite frequently.

I have the corded, and I use it on essentially every project. It pinch hits as a detail sander, although it isn’t random orbital. I just move it around a bit as I use it and it works find. I can make straighter cuts than with my jig saw, and I have used it to cut metal as well. The more you use it, the more uses you find. It is constantly plugged in under a bench in my shop.

I have the Dremel corded version of that and wouldn’t be without it. My big use is to cut baseboards for cabinet installations. No more pulling a piece of base, cutting it down and re-installing. Now, i can cut off what goes away and I’m done.

Yes it’s a cordless multitool. The saw is the only thing I use it for and its great for trimming skirting boards when you have to fit a unit up to the wall.

Gman, they sell a cheaper knock off with a cord at Harbor Freight.It works good for anything I do with it. Being able to get into corners and right against a surface is a big plus.

I have the Dremel version and after 5 minutes it gets too hot to handle. Anyone else have this problem?

Once in a while is key. I agree they’re handy, but if you used this in daily contracting, you’d have to have an asbestos glove. ;-)

I own the Dremel! I have not had any problems with it at all. I ran it almost constantly for about 30 min cutting down an over the fridge cabinet so that my neighbors could fit the new fridge in. I have also used it a bit for sanding too.
Contact Dremel and let them know about the problems you are having. I’d be interested to know what they do to resolve it!
