Dremel FortiFlex 9100 Blends Power and Precision

Dremel FortiFlex 9100

The new Dremel FortiFlex 9100 is a flexible shaft precision rotary tool that also boasts an impressive 23,000 RPM’s with its 2.5 amp, 120-volt motor. While watching the video and reading about the features of the 9100, my first thought was to compare it to a tattoo artist’s tool kit. While that might not be the world’s best comparison depending on your opinion of tattoos, there is a significant level of precision required by the artist using a tool that is still connected by cords and other attachments.

Using the Dremel Fortiflex 9100 Rotary Tool

While you’re using the handpiece much like you would hold a pen, the speed is controlled by a variable speed foot pedal. I’m a fan of foot-controlled speed because it frees up your hand to focus on simply gripping the tool in the best way for the user. Our feet are already used to controlling speed thanks to our driving habits.

While the 9100 has several applications, it’s really at home in woodworking where it can help you make the small detail cuts, sand, and add texture to make your piece really stand out.

The Dremel FortiFlex 9100 is compatible with all Dremel rotary tool accessories and any other accessory from 0″ – 5/32″. The handpiece is also interchangeable with any Dremel FortiFlex handpieces. A kit is available that includes the tool and several accessories to get you started on projects that require a solid level of precision. Dremel warranties the 9100 for 2 years and the kit is running $239 at the majority of retailers.
