I also noticed this tool and I am a bit of a gadget geek. However, I cannot see what this tool can do that any of my other tools cannot do.

In that case do what I always do, buy it anyway, tell the wife it was essential, and stick it on the middle shelf in the garage with the other essential bargains

Basically a big dremel.

Seems more like a jigsaw/router to me.

It's the male equivalent of shoes and handbags! Much more useful though.

Bought thanks not sure why though

I just made a double oven tall cupboard from MFC with dowels and (some) screws and glue.

Jigsaw was useless, (wandered all over place), circular saw was fine (underside doesn't chip) but a nice new blade was £27!!

I wonder if this would have helped. Does it take decent bits?

I still have to make some shaker doors and rebate would be useful (I don't have a router).

The jigs with this look useful.


(Edit: top tip? will buy a pre-made kitchen cupboard kit next time, the sodding wood was £80. And it's been no end of sodding around getting cuts mm perfect)

Will this neatly cut a melamine shelf?. I need to cut a hole under the sink to allow for the waste.

Theoretically it should be OK if you take it easy. I don't know how good this model actually is yet.

Or try a hole saw in your drill. Cheap and cheerful sets widely available.
eg http://www.tooled-up.com/microcat/hole-saw-sets/3281/

Drill/Cut halfway thru, turn over and go the other way to minimise chipping.
Practice on a scrap bit of melamine if you have any.

Hacksaw (also to minimise chipping) then if you want a U-shape to edge of shelf instead of circular hole.

Thanks, I have didn't bother with this saw. I'll have a practice with some hole saws like you say.

Just a heads up for anyone who arrives here looking for info on spare bits and sanding belts.
This machine is a similar design to the Dremel Trio, and uses the same 4.8mm collet.

Got one of these nice piece of kit but only uses 4.8 collet and only uses trio bits, nice work around conversion collet from "testntools" its a new zealand company and they make a conversion collet tht lets you use dremal 3.2 cutters
