MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – September 29, 2008

Whether hosting a Halloween bash or just getting in the spooky spirit, Halloween is the perfect time of year to let creative juices flow with an abundance of household decorations. Dremel®, the trusted name in high-speed rotary tool technology, is offering Halloween enthusiasts valuable tips for making their Halloween décor extra special.

Pumpkin Carving 101

Pumpkin carving is a tradition that is not only fun but essential for setting the stage for Halloween décor. Take pumpkin carving to a new level this year by using the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit, which includes a 6-Volt Dremel Alkaline Cordless rotary tool and 10 creative carving templates. The kit, which retails for $29.99, allows carvers to easily create frighteningly intricate designs, such as a haunted house or skeleton, on the surface of a pumpkin, giving the gourd a sophisticated, iridescent appearance compared to jack-o-lanterns of the past. Two carving speeds – 7,000 and 14,000 rotations per minute – aid carvers with varying levels of experience.

What's more, the brand is celebrating dads who, like the tool, go beyond the expected. Now through June 15, 2014, customers can nominate deserving dads in the Dremel Ultra Dad Contest for a chance to win a grand prize of $5,000 and a Dremel Ultra-Saw to help makeover dad's work space.

"We had the remodeling professional and advanced DIYer in mind when we designed the Dremel Ultra-Saw," said Ed Pchola, product director for Dremel. "Rather than a number of tools, Dremel users wanted one tool to help them with complex projects. As a result, we combined all the applications of the popular Dremel Saw-Max™ with a number of new features and the result is a dynamic, new multi-saw that goes beyond the expected."

Dremel Ultra-Saw Product Features:

  • UltraSaw 3-in-1 functionality goes beyond the expected:
  1. Cutting: Multiple cutting wheel options ensure ultra-versatility for cutting wood, tile, laminate flooring, PVC and plastic.
  2. Flush cutting: A dome-shaped wheel and carbide abrasive facilitate efficient flush cuts in doorjambs and baseboards.
  3. Surface prep: Specially designed surface prep wheels remove paint, rust and thinset from wood, metal and concrete/brick.
  • Increased power and performance with 7.5 amp motor and 4-inch abrasive wheels
  • Added durability due to metal foot and guard, which also improves stability and control during difficult applications and lengthy cuts, and improved drivetrain that lasts 3x longer than the Saw-Max
  • Adjustable depth for cutting a variety of material thicknesses
  • Auxiliary handle for additional control and comfort during surface prep applications
  • Onboard dust extraction port to maintain a clean workplace
  • Lock-on button for comfort during extended use
  • Ultra-Saw system includes seven cutting blade variations, two surface prep blade options, auxiliary handle and storage bag

Catalog Number: US40-01

The Dremel Ultra-Saw, including three cutting blades, a surfacing blade, handle and storage bag, is available nationwide May 2014 at Home Depot and Lowe's and online at Amazon.com for an MSRP of $129.99 USD.
