Dremel’s Multi-Vise is a very versatile and portable clamping system for small projects — exactly the kind of projects you take on with Dremel’s rotary tools. It’s not going to hold large projects or take heavy abuse, but then again those really aren’t the tasks for which it’s designed. And the ability to mount your Dremel in any position you’d like is reason enough to own one of these.
We’d recommend the Multi-Vise with two caveats: Use care when tightening the clamp to avoid skinned knuckles, and don’t beat on it. We’d imagine that if you really whalloped it regularly, the ball-and-socket system might loosen over time. In short: be careful, and don’t use it for inappropriate purposes (too often).
Note: The Multi-Vise is very new and is just now starting to make its way onto shelves in the US. Dremel advises that the best place to look right now is at Home Depot, but they say it should be widely available in early May. We’ll follow up with another post then.
