Top critical review
on 11 February 2017
The only times I've ever written a review is when a product is either outstanding or appalling. Unfortunately for Dremel (and myself) in this case, it's the latter. This really is a diabolical piece of shoddy kit - Dremel hang your head in shame! I read some bad reviews before I purchased it and then stupidly read a few positive ones which swayed my decision. These positive reviewers must be on a different planet because the product is not fit for purpose. Just trying to create a simple routed straight edge is impossible - it simply can't be done. As noted by other hapless customers, the Dremel and router bit sway in the wind like a drunk at kicking out time! The mechanism just isn't capable of holding the tool steady. Also, I found out that the router bed (where you slide your item) had a couple of small raised burrs/imperfections. This left some lovely scratches across the surface and ruined the piece.
Please Dremel, withdraw this useless product, re-engineer it using machined castings and charge 4 times as much - I'd probably buy one!
I will be returning this and getting a full refund - you have been warned!
