Having fun with my new dremel

Summary: I just got a chance to use my new Dremel and have been having a good time testing out the different bits. I got the Dremel for wood carving and sanding. I am an artist who works among other things in wood. The ability to shape and smooth efficiently and quickly is simply a pleasure. It has seriously reduced the time I spend on sanding, and has made possible projects that I previously wouldn't have even tried.
Summary: Bought this for my father, who is thrilled with product. He bought a diamond cutter for this Dremel(not in accessories) and has been able to remove bathroom tiles without disturbing others around them. Apparently,this couldn't be done so easily without the Dremel! Also had fun etching bottles!
Summary: I have had one for 3 weeks now and use it daily. The tool kit is excellent value for money compared to buying all the accessories individually. I am impressed by drill's ability to maintain revs even under high loads using diamond tipped cutting wheels on hard steel. I bought this to replace a Woolworths (remember them?) 130 W drill and it seems twice as powerful. The calibrated rpm speed dial is a very thoughtful addition as some tools have a lowish limit.
Summary: The only reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because of the variable quality of some of the products you can get to do various things. I think the main problem is that there is a lot of inconsitency in the labeling of the maximum rpm that every individual tool works at, which is absolutely crucial. Apart from this, PERFECT! Now to the good bits, which is all the rest really. I use this tool to clean caburators and it has changed the way I work.
Summary: i have had experience with using some of the earlier versions of the dremel, and knew that i would want a newer one when i got more serious about my work using one. the pack is a great starter for those interested in craft. i have been using it for carving perspex, wood , glass and pumpkin! the flexi shaft is so good to use as it allows for more precision, as you dont have the weight of the main body. Great buy! very happy.
Summary: More than a bit disappointed as of this moment. I am returning my Dremel for a replacement, I have faith in Amazon's customer service, but not sure about Dremel. This is my first Dremel purchase and immediately out of the box I noticed discolouring and I think surface rust of the shaft that rotates and comes out of the main housing of the unit.
