A pleasure for the DIY-artist - Box lid could close tighter for use in rough environment
on 14 January 2016
A pleasure for the DIY-artist that comes in a well organized metal box that could in a rough environment do with a lid that closes more tight
Love this product. Chose it as it is so versatile and as it is from the famous "Dremel" brand there never will be issues finding spare parts.
Out of the box, filled with gas, started rope cutting. That went lovely. Cut a thumb thick 2-layered nylon rope within seconds. Went on to cut various 'lines', some drenching wet, and it was a pleasure. The handling of the Versatip goes very smooth. The cutting was done by pushing the hot cutter blade onto the rope using an old roof tile as underground. To melt the nylon cord ends better together the Versatip handles like a thick marker. Very easy to use with very pleasing results.
The item comes in a handy, well organized, metal box. Can't take a star off the review for it but why is it that these boxes are all to often lacking a good system to securely lock them? The box is great but its lid sits on it as if it were a Sunday afternoon cooky box: if you try to put the manual with the device it won't even keep close. That is a minus that easily could have been improved on. In particular in a marine environment one can't keep the outer cardboard sales packing just to keep the metal box lid in place! Now it's up to the individual DIY-er to fix that. Maybe something with a belt to make carrying the box around more easy too. The small wrenches need a tiny hole in their handle to be able to secure them.
Without any doubt: this tool in the right hand is going to be loved and give a lot of joy and satisfaction.
