Dremel Blades for Multi Max Oscillating Saw Flush Cut

Last year, I added a battery powered oscillating saw to my shop. At the time, I knew I would use it for occasional (not very often) tasks like when we needed to trim door trim when installing new flooring.

But over the last year or so, I’ve found myself grabbing it for SO MANY odds and end cuts. It’s really become a very (surprisingly) valuable tool in my tool box.

.

Check out how I used it to make this modern industrial wall clock here.

I also used it to trim pocket hole plugs on my plywood bookshelf and to trim dowels from accidental holes I drilled in my recent dresser build (check out the video to see it in action).

But, just like any cutting tool, the tool itself is only as good as the blades. Earlier this year I got some of these Dremel Universal Carbide Oscillating Tool Blades to replace my existing worn out one.

.

Although they are Dremel blades, they’re designed to fit most oscillating tool brands including Rockwell, FEIN, Makita, Ridgid, Milwaukee, Bosch, DEWALT and Porter Cable. These blades and tools have a handy quick change feature that makes changing and interchanging blades easy.

.

These blades are designed with carbide teeth material for high-performance hard material cutting applications–like wood, metal, and cement.

.

I’ve used them on metal–to cut proud or protruding nails or screws (both in the shop and in my parent’s recent bathroom remodel).

And I’ve used them to flush cut some wooden dowels and pocket hole plugs.

.

So I knew they could stand up to cutting through metal and wood. But, I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical this would cut through much more–especially cement….I mean…It’s CEMENT.

.

But, when we started remodeling my parents master bathroom recently, we put these to quite the test. We used these blades to cut through fiberglass tub to remove it during demo.

We used it to cut plumbing pipes when we had to move some supply and drainage lines.

But it was the MOST valuable when it came time to cut the cement board for the shower and the floor. If you’ve ever cut cement board, you know that it’ll dull a good utility knife blade with just a couple scores and it’s brittle and challenging to cut holes if they’re not on the edge of the board.

These blades claimed they could cut through cement, so I put them to the test. I used them to cut out the cement board to go around the shower valve, and was thoroughly impressed with how easily it cut right through.

Then I used it again to cut the cement board out for the floor around the hole for the toilet, the tub drain, and around the air vent in the floor. So if you have any doubts about it cutting through cement, trust me, they aren’t lying. That said, this would also work really well for cutting drywall as well.

.

What I like about these blades is that it can cut through tough materials, but it’s also a really good all around blade…I don’t have to change it if I want to cut wood, metal, etc. This one blade covers all of those, so I can save time changing blades and spend that time actually working.

.

If you don’t already have an oscillating saw in your shop or tool box, I highly recommend picking one up as you won’t realize how handy it is until you have one. BUT, while you’re at it, make sure to pick up a pack of these blades...I think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised by them as I have been.
