The Dremel Saw-Max is a Compact and Powerful Saw that’s Perfect for Cutting all Types of Smaller Sized Home Building Materials

By Mark J. Donovan

In this video Mark Donovan of HomeAdditionPlus.com reviews the Dremel Saw-Max Model SM20 from Dremel.

The Dremel Saw-Max packs a lot of punch for such a small saw. It’s perfect for a plethora of DIY home improvement projects, as it cuts wood, metal, plastic, ceramic tile, and even masonry building materials.
Like all Dremel tools the Saw-Max Model SM20 is ergonomically designed so that it is extremely easy and comfortable to handle.

How many times have you worked on a home improvement project and found yourself needing to make a small straight cut, and having no choice but to reach for that big old clunky circular skill saw. I know I have countless numbers of times. Using a large circular saw on a small cutting project is like using a sledge hammer to tack in finish nails on a trim project. It’s imprecise and inevitably leads to less than professional work.

The Dremel Saw-Max is ideal for making smaller sized straight cuts on all types of home building materials. The adjustable foot allows you to control the blade height from 0 to 3/4 of an inch.

And with a 6 amp motor and worm drive that turns the saw blade at 17,000 RPM, the Saw-Max has the power to make both regular cuts and plunging cuts. Moreover, it also is designed to make flush cuts using one of its specially designed flush cut saw blades. This feature makes it ideal for ceramic tiling projects where often a small section of door trim needs to be removed at the base of the door to allow the tile to slip under.

The Saw-Max is controlled by a paddle switch with a special lock-off feature that provides an extra level of safety when operating the saw. For extended use applications it also has a lock-on button that enables the Saw-Max to run continuously without having to squeeze the paddle switch.

The Saw-Max is also extremely light compared to the typical circular skill saw. The Dremel Saw-Max weighs in at only 3.85 lbs, making it easy to operate with one hand control for both men and woman.

The Dremel Saw-Max SM20-02 comes with a number accessories including; four (4) 3″ diameter blades for cutting a variety of materials, a dust port adapter, a 2×4 cutting guide, and an allen wrench for removing and installing cutting blades.

So before you start your next home improvement project and find yourself again regrettably reaching for that large and heavy circular saw to make a small cut, check out the Dremel Saw-Max SM20. It’s perfect for ripping small lengths of plywood or for cutting out box openings in wood, plastic and metal.

You can find the Dremel Saw-Max Model SM20-02 in home improvement centers around the country, and at the time of this review it was priced at $129. You can also purchase it at various online stores, such as Amazon.com. See: Dremel SM20-02 120-Volt Saw-Max Tool Kit to purchase it.
