The 350Q is probably a better tool that the 250Q. The 350Q has a plastic release lever right on the top of the tool, which does not lie flat on the tool body so that a sleeve or such can and does easily get under the lever. The lever is held down rather weakly by a spring clamp that releases with almost a touch. The “feel” of the tool in your hand seems in some way not as “solid “as past multi master models. The tool is packed in its box in a way that kinked the cord. The “soft case” is poor in design and build quality. Fein did an upgrade in power and vibration control, but a definite downgrade in the “build” quality. It also fails after slight use. Fein did make a lot of 350Q models that sold with bad electronics. Fein is not helping by offering any exchanges of the affected tools. It looks like the 350Q was built to compete at a price point with homeowner grade tools similar to the multi master.
FEIN 350Q worked great for less than 30 days. It started smelling that electrical burning smell. Really disappointed with the purchase.
Dremel Velocity REVIEW
The Velocity tool has been improved upon. It is massive, nearly twice the weight and several inches longer. So maneuverability is compromised with this tool. Because of the weight, after several minutes of using it, such as cutting off rafter tails for remodeling/boxing in eaves where you are holding it above your head for extended period of time, it wears on you and you realize how much better it is than using the MM40.
The decibel level is on par with the others, so hearing protection is a must because of the high pitched whine from the motor.
The Quick-Lock tool-less feature is nice, so no more carrying around a wrench to change blades.
The included bag doesn’t have pockets to keep the additional blades/sander bits and pieces organized, so they just get dumped into the bag. The bag is just long enough to fit the tool without a blade attached. So when you put it away, you have to take the blade off.
The biggest issue is the stability foot. It is designed (when used in addition with the included Panel Blade) for ripping wood up to ¾” thick. While it works, a table saw or circular saw rips wood about eight to ten times faster than this thing due to the lack of an aggressively toothed blade for such a task. Often the foot gets in the way when using the tool for other tasks.
Powerful, long power cord, and does cut everything you throw at it.
Larger than the other models (hard to fit into tight spaces), doesn’t cut any better or worse than the smaller models, no real improvement over the MM45 or MM40.
