What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dremel 200-1/15 Two-Speed Rotary Tool Kit
  • My husband picked me up a Dremel 3000 from HD which was nice but after the first use 1st speed quit, then 2nd.
  • I can't believe I've gone my entire life without having at least a basic Dremel tool, but that's all changed. I opted for the Model 200 that has high and low speeds.
  • Love the Dremel It has a slow and a fast speed which make it perfect for grinding my dogs nails.
  • Doesn't frighten my dog and the low speed it just right as not to rip his nails off.
  • High speed works great for what I have used it for. Tons of different attachments for this.
Dremel 4000-6/50 Variable Speed Rotary Tool
  • The Dremel tool itself is great and I really appreciate the variable speed settings.
  • It has plenty of power and the adjustable speed lets you tune the Dremel to the task at hand.
  • But this Dremel is powerful and has adjustable speed setting. It took me awhile shopping online and reading reviews to find a Dremel that would meet all my needs and this is definitely the one.
  • The tool doesn't have a lot of torque, so you need to let it operate at high speeds and let the rotational speed do the work.
  • I feel that it is worth the money to get your Dremel with a varible speed control. Speed does matter and it gives you something to play with when you get bored or just thinking things over.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Dremel 200-1/15 Two-Speed Rotary Tool Kit
  • Just two speeds and a smaller size that fits my hand better.
  • I love this product because of its small size.
  • Has a nice weight to it, easy to operate with one hand.
  • The Dremel is durable and is very comfortable to hold.
Dremel 4000-6/50 Variable Speed Rotary Tool
  • This unit works good. I previously had one of the original Dremels and finally had to replace it. They have made some real improvements. Nice size, weight and feel.
  • Not a commercial rotary tool but a light weight all around small task tool as in hobbyist tool.
  • It makes it hard to do some of the finer projects I was wanting to do because it's weight and size makes it awkward to handle.
  • The flex shaft is particually nice since it allows you to have a light weight tool in your hands for detail work.
  • I use this for my 2 Dremel work stations, drill press and router table, has the power the cordless doesn't, but the cordless is used more often for it's portability.

What customers say about "Features"
Dremel 200-1/15 Two-Speed Rotary Tool Kit
  • The weather finally was nice enough for me to use this dremel and it works great. Love the 2 speed feature. Made a hard job easier and faster.
  • The picture you see is what comes in the $40 unit, 15 various starter bits, and a cool attachment that lets you sharpen garden tools like axes, hoes and mower blades.
  • High speed works great for what I have used it for. Tons of different attachments for this.
  • It's a Dremel! Worth paying more than the generic rotary tools because I can find all the attachments and deal with warranty issues locally.
  • I love that it came with so many different attachments.
Dremel 4000-6/50 Variable Speed Rotary Tool
  • Comes with some nice attachments, can't wait to use the sharpener on my mower blades and see how well it works. Very pleased
  • This specific unit is extremely powerful, light, durable, and not too noisy. It includes a few bits which work well, but I wish i included more for the level of the kit.
  • The better tool ever for home or diy, probably doesn't works for heavy duty works. but so much accesories can be attached.
  • The tool is great the accesories are good but the only thing this that it did have the disk to cut wood that is my only fault with this product.
  • Great product; love that I finally have the full set with all possible attachments included in the package.

What customers say about "Power"
Dremel 200-1/15 Two-Speed Rotary Tool Kit
  • I have used a small battery powered dremel for years to file down our dogs nails. The battery started to die so I bought a new battery.
  • Easy portability with the cordless vs more power and never having to wait for a charge.
  • The low speed doesn't have a lot of power although I'm sure there are some uses for that speed.
  • Working like a champ. Plenty of power to handle everything I have done with it so far
Dremel 4000-6/50 Variable Speed Rotary Tool
  • It feels solid in my hand and has good power for what it does.
  • As with all Dremel brand rotary tools, this is excellent construction, power, and versatility.
  • So I love the dremel (when it was working) great power, easy to use, simple, did everything I needed it to do, except power back up it just stopped working out of the blue and only used it a few times.
  • Be aware that you will lose some power with this extension, there were times when drilling and cutting that it would seize and I would have to turn it off, remove the tool, and start again moving slower.
  • It has plenty of power and the adjustable speed lets you tune the Dremel to the task at hand.
