which Dremel tool should I get?gtx
Mar 23, 2002 4:38 PM
I now have a few projects where I think I could use a Dremel tool. But there are lots of models to chose from so I would love some advice. Right now I'm thinking maybe a 2850-01 Two-Speed MultiPro® Kit or maybe the 395 Variable-Speed MultiPro® Tool. What about the cordless models? Any thoughts? And where is the best place to buy one of these? eBay? Thanks in adavance.
I like the variable speed w/flexible shaftretro

A flexible shaft (rather than one where the attachments go on the handpiece) gives a little more versatility, I think. Not a big deal, though. I do like the variable speeds rather than the two speed (my dad has one and I have the other). If you're mainly going to cut cables with it, then the two-speed should be fine. If I'm carving or doing detail work in a variety of materials, though, sometimes there's a pretty narrow range of revs where the thing feels like it's happy.

These things are not that expensive and and multiple speeds adds some versatility. I'm always finding new tasks for mine. Some don't even have anything to do with bikes! Maybe you can find these online but I'm sure you can find them at a good price at your local Walmart or similar discount dept store
