Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool Preview

Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool Preview

Dremel’s 3000 is its newest rotary tool and updates the line to include some very handy and ergonomic features. One of these is the new EZ Twist nose cap. The cap has an integrated wrench used to tighten accessories and which takes away the need to include a separate wrench that can be misplaced. The tool is also a bit shorter than the Dremel 300 series, but its rated at 1.2 amps, so it’s powerful enough to handle tasks requiring both power and finesse. The new rotary tool has a more efficient fan design with side vents for better cooling. The Dremel 3000 also claims to be quieter and runs with less vibration. From our initial viewing of the tool, we like the new design, which also offers a trumpet-shaped nose cap which yields a secure and comfortable hold on the tool during use. Dremel is targeting the 3000 Rotary Tool for cutting, grinding, sanding, carving and polishing.

Dremel Trio Kit 6800-01 Review

Dremel Trio 6800 Review

At this point we’d have to say that there is no reason not to have a few Dremel tools around the shop. The Trio is yet another product that is simply easy to use and handy for a variety of tasks, from sanding to cutting to routing. The trick with the Dremel is understand its target market. This isn’t a professional’s tool – simply because it’s flexibility precludes it from being the very best at anything that it does – but it IS extremely flexible, and provides a value that is almost unheard of and unseen in the marketplace. Like the MultiMax before it, this is one of those tools that makes a great gift for any DIY or enthusiast.

Dremel 8200-1 Cordless Rotary Tool Review

Dremel 8200 Cordless Rotary Tool Review

Dremel has been the leader in the rotary tool market for some time, and the introduction of the new 8200 Lithium-ion Cordless Rotary Tool kit means that they now have an even wider appeal. While their existing lineup, including the popular Dremel 4000-2/30 High Performance Kit, is very capable, the 8200 allows a portability not found in previous incarnations from the company. Partially, this is because their other cordless tools, particularly the 7.2V MultiPro and 4.8V MiniMite, all fell short when it came to power and longevity. Even the 10.8V, while technically very similar to the 8200 in power and capacity, carried the same 3-hour charge time for its Lithium-ion batteries. Now, Dremel has borrowed from parent company Bosch, integrating their 12V Max technology, and bringing its latest cordless rotary tool’s recharge time down to a manageable one-hour.
