Dremel has kicked-off the new year with a raft of new and improved initiatives to help its users power on with their projects in 2015.

Dremel has improved its 8200 cordless multitool with enhanced runtime and less downtime (faster charging) allowing the user to perform heavier duty applications. The tool now contains a compact and powerful 2.0Ah 10.8V Li-ion battery, a high power 36mm electric motor to ensure ease of cutting, a slide speed switch providing full variable speed control up to 30,000 RPM.

It also has a motor-brake to ensure that the accessory on the tool stops spinning immediately after switching off the tool for extra safety, a three-LED battery gauge to show accurate battery status, a separate on/off switch with collet lock-out function to ensure no accidental actuation of the collet lock, EZ Twist to change accessories without a wrench and a soft grip making the tool feel comfortable to use. Excellent value at £145 inc VAT.

Dremel is offering a £30 saving on its new DSM20 Compact Saw cutting set, which comprises seven high quality accessories: a SM500 Multipurpose Carbide Cutting Disc, two SM510 metal and plastic cutting wheels, two SM520 Masonry Cutting Wheels, a SM540 Diamond Abrasive Wheel and a SM600 Multipurpose Carbide Flush Cut Blade.

These wheels are designed to cut through soft wood, hard wood, plywood, laminate, plastic, tile, drywall/plasterboard, copper, cast iron, aluminium, soft metals, marble and brick. The wheels allow users to perform a diverse range of cutting applications such as straight, flush and plunge cuts. Individually purchased, these wheels would cost £75 inc VAT but are being offered in kit form (how apt! Ed) for £45 inc VAT.
