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