Dremel 8300-01 Cordless Multi-Max Kit Review

Like most men, my husband loves his tools. He loves to tinker with things and build things. So when given the Dremel 8300-01 Cordless Multi-Max Kit, he was like a big kid that had just been given a toy. It wasnt but a few minutes before he had left to the hardware store, to find something to build so he could use his new toy! Lol, men, it seems like they never really grow up. My husband is always giving me a hard time when I take him shopping with me but when we go to the hardware store, I think he is worse than I am! Well, once he finally decided what he was going to make we were finally able to go home. He decided he would make a bookshelf to hang on our wall in our room. He grabbed his new Dremel 8300-01 Cordless Multi-Max Kit and went out to his man cave, and started on his project. It didnt seem to be too long before he was done. The finished project was beautiful! I love it when my husband makes things for our house! Once he finished his project he decided he needed to show off his new toy to all of his friends. Like I said before, men, all of his buddies were out in the man cave checking out his new toy, like it was a new big red wagon or something. The thing is, he loves his new Dremel 8300-01 Cordless Multi-Max Kit and now he has a new toy to make all of his friends jealous with. Thank you Dremel for giving my husband a new toy that we could test and review!!

(Oh, almost forgot...I am curious about something but if you don't feel comfortable sharing it or feel like it is a conflict of interest, then please please, by all means "just say NO"!!! I will always only blog with integrity, as I can tell you do also after looking around at your site tonight. So, I am going to ask you, but PLEASE ONLY ANSWER THE QUESTION if you fee like you are not violating any information or trust you have built with the folks at Dremel, okay? I am just really curious to know - did Dremel contact you first or did you seek them out? Have you worked with a contact that you liked, and if so, would you be willing to share the reps name?

If you would rather talk privately, please feel free to email me at

Thanks Katie!

There was a time when Dremel was one of the best power tools brand, with the passage of time more power tools brands came and there is now Delta, Dewalt, Makita and many others. The biggest problem with Cordless Tools is that you have to carry extra battery with your Cordless Tool Kits
