Dremel VersaTip: The Cordless 6-in-1 Gas Torch

The Dremel VersaTip is a butane-gas-powered torch, offering a different system to the rotary tool which the brand is recognised for. The Dremel VersaTip is one tool which can be used for 6 different applications: soldering, melting, hot cutting, welding, shrinking and woodburning (pyrography). The tool comes with six different attachments to enable you to complete these various jobs. The included solder flux, soldering sponge and sponge box means you can start soldering all types of metals immediately.

Get Heat Wherever You Need it

The VersaTip is powered by normal lighter gas fuel, which is readily available in supermarkets. As there are no wires, you have the freedom to work anywhere, whenever you want. The tool takes seconds to fill with liquid butane gas and a full tank lasts 30-60 minutes, meaning it is always ready to use. An open flame can be created by removing the tip, which reaches a temperature of 1200 degrees Celsius. The hot blower head tip supplies a hot air temperature of 680 degrees Celsius and the tips will heat up to 550 degrees Celsius. This heat is fully adjustable with a plus/minus slider, to cater for a variety of tasks.

Six Tips for Many Jobs

Included in the kit are 6 tips which simply screw onto the end of the VersaTip:

  • Soldering tip: This is used for regular soldering activities, along with the supplied solder and tin with sponge.
  • Hot cutting knife: This can be used for cutting nylon rope to prevent 'feathering'.
  • Shaping knife: A common use is cutting to size sheets of plastic and other heat sensitive materials. This can also do pyrography which is burning designs onto wood or leather.
  • Wide flame head: Used when preparing for detailed paint removal.
  • Hot air tip: To assist in the melting of plastics and other heat sensitive materials.
  • Deflector: For shrinking of heat sensitive insulation around electrical wiring.
Child Safety Mechanism

The VersaTip is equipped with a child safety lock that requires two-handed operation to protect against accidental ignition by children. The start-up is initiated by a similar action to a cigarette lighter, with a lock for continuous working.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Handy... 10 Nov 2010
    By strob
    I have had one of these nifty little tools for about six months now and I'm looking at buying one as a gift because I think it is a brilliant device. The attachments seem solid and are easy to change, and the tin is a good way of keeping things together and clean when not in use.

    It is quick and simple and so very easy to handle, even when doing intricate soldering tasks for example. It is like handling an oversized pen and the weight disribution is excellent so you can easily control the tip.

    My primary use for this tool is for hobby work, making bits and bobs from jewellery to little boxes and it copes with all that very well. I have also used the VersaTip for occasional repair jobs, which are a little more heavy duty; the VersaTip coped really well and I can't fault it, but this is not a heavy duty soldering iron and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking to do large quantities of heavy duty repairs.

    However, if like me, you are looking for a light, easy to control soldering/hot tip device with the need for occasional heavy duty repairs this is a good choice.

    I got this to replace a cheaper but smaller gas solder. It has a lovely quality feel and its performance in soldering is great, nicely filling my need to solder car electrics where I don't have a power supply. Five stars for this but it loses 2 stars for the poor instructions and the frustrating 'gotcha' that bit me.
    Mine wouldn't light itself and the multi-language instructions were minimal and just about useless. It also wouldn't light by match or cigarette lighter, so I had to use my gas hob or blowtorch for over a week. No response from email to Dremel customer support. In the end I discovered that there is a small metal pin in the body that wasn't touching the metal guard that you screw and unscrew to change tips; when I bent it up a fraction and put the guard back on the tool lit first time every time. Either it came like this or in checking the fit of the components I may have fitted the guard without a tool, thus allowing the guard to screw in a further mm and bend the pin without leaving any sign (it is a very short pin and there was no sign of bending before or after my rectification). So, if yours doesn't light then you know where to go first......

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good tool but expensive 17 Feb 2010
    Verified Purchase
    the Dremel versatip gas torch is just about the most versatile and useful soldering tool I have ever owned it is good for electrical soldering and for LIGHT metalwork it is also handy for basic pokerwork and of course it does'nt need electricity. the down side to this tool is it not very good for big job as thbe gas tank only holds enough gas for about 35 minutes constant use, it will only braise light metal and it is expensive when compared with similar tools that are very nearly as good. However if you want the best overall light heat tool this is the one and it wont break the bank

    5.0 out of 5 stars Its great, 8 Jan 2010
    It's great it has all the functionality you can ask for and will do pretty much all you need it to cause it heats up that quick.

    the only problem is that you can get scortching if your not careful

    4.0 out of 5 stars Useful 22 Dec 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Very useful for area's where you can not take a power supply, torch good for quick plumbing welds. Tends to eat butane, but that is the nature of the beast.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great for soldering, and then some! 6 Feb 2012
    I'm usually sceptical about something that has a wide range of uses, as they tend to not do any of them very well, but this little tool was a pleasant surprise. I was originally looking for a gas powered soldering iron, as any soldering I do usually means taking something apart, bringing it to the work bench and bringing it all back. The portability of this tool means I can take it to the job.

    It's nicely balanced for soldering, with a great heat control and a nice fine tip. My only complaint is that it's a little too chunky. I don't think I'd get away with using it in a confined space, but for general soldering, it's perfect.

    The tin it comes in is very nice - it would make a great gift - and the other attachments are pretty nice too. Hot air (paint stripping), hot air with a shield (for cable shrink wrapping), wood burning, and a hot knife. Nice little tin with sponge for soldering, and an empty tin for dropping your solder into. They even chuck in a tube of solder too.

    What they don't say is that you can just remove all the attachments and have a nice little blue gas flame - I haven't used it yet, but I'd say it'll come in handy for heating bushings and seized bolts on my car.

    Now, when I bring a new tool home, my wife generally gives me that "Really? Did you actually NEED this?" look, but not this time. In fact, she went a little nuts.

    So far, she's burned our surname and a smiley face into the kitchen chopping board, melted some solder onto the top of our kitchen table, and toasted herself some marshmallows with the open flame. It's definitely a hit with her - although I wouldn't buy one for your own wife for Valentines, Christmas or her birthday: it's good, but it's not gonna be THAT good.

    Best tool I've bought in a long while.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, need to get used to for soldering 12 Mar 2011
    This is certainly versatile and cordless is great - worth the price for a single in the field repair alone.
    Need to learn to remember which way the hole in the soldering tip faces as I melted a cover whilst soldering a plug onto a cable, used the torch to make it malleable again and fixed it up.
    Just as delicate as an electric iron but a little different, I'm a little rusty though.
    Great item, and fills easily from a standard lighter filler canister from the supermarket!
