Dremel VersaTip: The Cordless 6-in-1 Gas Torch
The Dremel VersaTip is a butane-gas-powered torch, offering an entirely 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 unique 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.
