    The Black & Decker rotary tool was half the price as the Dremel with the same 5 year warranty--a great value. The other review was very helpful because another purchaser said it didn't come with very many accessories, so I bought the Dremel 150 piece accessory kit for about half of what I saw it for elsewhere. Together, they both cost less than a comparable Dremel that included only 20 accessories. Very happy with that. I am using it to trim my dog's nails. I bought one of those nail trimmers being advertised on TV and discovered that it was just a cheap, battery operated rotary tool. The B & D tool was about the same price with no batteries to replace and much better grinding heads. Now I'll use it for a lot of other tasks too with that 150 piece accessory kit.

    While this was a smashing deal, considering an equivalent Dremel tool is twice the price, I wish they would have thought it out a bit. About half of the attachments need the smaller collet nuts (3/32"). Not too big a deal, but a little irritating. I've used Dremel rotary tools for about 15 years now. This by far beats my expectations for a rotary tool. High torque, no bog down. Even the low setting is all that's needed for most jobs. And quiet too. The collet is easy to get stuck though. I'm always having to tap the bit out. Dremels, seems the bits come right out. The tool gets a bit warm though after about an hour of use. But, B&D tools are known for that for some reason. Doesn't kill it's life expectancy, AFAIK. I'd recommend it, hands down. And, it's from Black and Decker, so you know it's a quality power tool.

    5.0 stars by seagull369

    Excellent tool. Didn't think I'd be saying that about a B&D product these days with some of the garbage they have out there, but they've hit a home run on this one. At 2 amps, this thing has gobs of torque for it's size. Don't have to spin it up nearly as high as my Dremel (1.2A) to get the work done. Threads up top are same as Dremel's so a lot of their attachments will fit. Tool does heat up during hard work, as others have said, so once it starts getting uncomfortable to hold you must shut it off otherwise you'll fry it (I toss mine in the freezer for a while which speeds cooling time). Bits/wheels/etc. that come bundled are cheapo, so be forewarned. Though I never thought I'd care, the cord is soft and pliable even at cold temps. Collet lock is superior to Dremel's (very easy to accidentally engage its button lock while you're running it in tight areas).

    • A. some will; most look like they will NOT fit due to the shaft size of the Dremel tools; the bit can only accommodate small bits. I would express caution when trying to use some of the larger accessories on this tool.
