Today’s Dremel Tools, Which One Is Right for Me?
By Floyd Taylor
Dremel tools are made in America and have been a household name for generations. They have a reputation for being high-quality, versatile tools and have been popular with homeowners and hobbyists ever since the first Dremel rotary tool was introduced over 75 years ago.
The Dremel company has continually refined and perfected their products and now offers a line of rotary tools designed to serve a wide range of hobbies and around-the-house projects. Many businesses also find Dremel tools a great asset to complement to their standard-size saws, routers and sanders.
Choosing The Right Dremel Tool
The Dremel tool that is right for you will depend on the types of projects you want to do. So, to begin the process of choosing, think about what you want to do with the tool. Then try to imagine yourself completing one of your projects using the tool that you are considering. Does it feel right? Then you need to evaluate the accessories that come with the tool. Are all the bits that you’ll need included? You should also check to see if there is a kit that will save you money. Kits usually contain more bits and accessories than you think you will need. But, believe me, no matter which of Dremel’s tools you decide on, you’ll soon discover that your Dremel tool is even more useful than you imagined. There are over 200 attachments and accessories available making every Dremel tool extremely versatile.
While not all of Dremel’s attachments and accessories can be added to or used with every Dremel tool, there are always a variety of bits available for every tool. Bits for cutting woods, metals and plastics and for grinding, sanding, polishing, and routing. There are attachments for cutting circles, for cutting straight edges, for sharpening chain saws, for filing your dog’s nails and even for carving pumpkins. Then there is a whole raft of accessories such as a flexible shaft attachment, a multi-use vise, a project table, and multifunction work station to name a few. What you can do with a Dremel tool? The possibilities are endless.
