This review is from: Dremel Multi Tool 300-30 (DIY & Tools)
A Jack-of-all-trades but master of none? Sort of; If you have the money and storage space for separate, dedicated drills, routers, engravers, sanders, cutters and sharpeners, then they will do a better job and cope with heavier duty work. If you want a multi-tool which will cope with all the above, but on a smaller, lighter scale, then the Dremel is for you. Although it could come with a few more accessories as standard, the amount of optional extras and add-ons are innumerable, if a tad expensive. There are lots of bits made for other multi-tools which are cheaper and fit the Dremel just fine, though probably not recommended by the Dremel factory!! I had one of these when they first came out years and years ago and although delighted initially, was dissapointed when it burnt-out after a very short time. This put me off and I didn't consider one again until I recently began making wooden instruments. I read lots of reviews, and eventually took the plunge again. The newer models appear to be far better constructed than the earlier ones and the speed setting switch more robust. It fits my hand nicely and is comfortable to use. For fine, light duty and intricate work where a large tool would be too clumbsy, such as model making or craftwork I would definitely recommend the Dremel. You wouldn't want to fit a kitchen with one though!
