Jack of all trades ... master of none
on 3 February 2014
With all the hype surrounding the Dremel Trio, via TV adverts, magazine reviews and the net, I placed this tool on my most wanted list.
Thankfully I got this at Lightning deal price, else I would have been quite disappointed.
I really wanted to like this tool, and to be honest it does quite a decent job, yet it does not live up to the marketing hype.
So the Trio stands for Sanding, Cutting and Routing. It surely does all three, yet it has limitations which would not be acceptable at the full asking price.
The minimal accessories supplied, which in my opinion should be referred to as "bare essentials", means that you would have to purchase additional very expensive Dremel accessories. Thankfully one could find third party accessories at a fraction of the cost of Dremel ones.
I have given a 3 star rating based on the full asking price. I would rate it 4 stars if I had to take into account the £49.99 I paid for it.
The bottom line: If you manage to get hold of this tool at a bargain price, than go for it. The build quality is good and it will last for several years being used as a jack of all trades.
