You can spend more money on one of the higher tier dremels, but when you get down to it, this is the same thing essentially. You don't get the speed control, but you really don't need that. And for the price difference, I decided the luxury wasn't worth it. This will cut through quite a bit of stuff. The motor is very strong. It's great for a beginner or someone who just needs a reliable, cheap, rotary tool. This really does get the job done. The simplicity of only a on and off switch makes it many times more reliable than any other dremel. There is simply less to go wrong. I would highly suggest this to anyone who is looking to buy a tool of this nature.

Best Dremel hands down
I ordered this to replace the Dremel I've had for over 10 years. I bought the same model because it worked well for me, and was a good value. And, in fact the price is practically the same as it was when I bought my first Dremel from Walmart many years ago. But this one came with bonus attachments. I'm an artist, and I use this for sanding sculptures, home repair, and revamping things like furniture.
I'm using this on foam, but it's incredibly effective and fast. I think it would go through hardier materials with no problem.
Just A Great Tool
Serves all my grinding,cleaning and poishing needs.Enough RPM's to make the work easier to complete without bogging down the engine.Shape and design very easy to hold and use.
Great Dremel Tool
Works great. Lots of accessories available. I bought a $12 Lutron lamp dimmer to make this a variable speed tool.
purchased this item for myself several years ago and liked it so much that I purchased it for a family member for Christmas this year and he now loves it too!
Got this for my husband and he loves it.
I was a little surprised with the amount of power this model has and I look forward to using it's adaptability on future projects. If there is a drawback, I guess that it would be that it's a bit on the too powerful side for intricate applications.
Probably would give 5 stars if I had it for a while. I bought it to use with the plunge router attachment for light work. It works great. It takes some time to get the feel of the proper routing speed. Too slow and it leaves burn marks. Too fast and it overworks the motor. Overall, I am more than happy with it.
Useful Tool; Inconsistent Quality
I go through about 4-5 of these each year. As a shell-carver, I use them for work. This model is the most useful to me. However, I'm so sick to death of the inconsistent quality of Drexel. Maybe 1 in 3 will work exactly as it should when it comes out of the box. The one I just bought is among the other 2/3 — I think, finally, today, I have everything tightened/loosened enough to work at full speed — but I'm pretty sure one of the wires is loose inside. I don't want to open it up yet. I've gotten some that won't turn on; others that last 3 weeks and then meltdown — literally melt — like, smoking plastic. But this is, otherwise, a really useful tool.
