    Was thinking about getting a new dremel. Is it still the best, is there a newer better version?

    I've an older 2 speed, corded Dremel tool set and I haven't killed it yet. I'll replace it with another Dremel when it dies.

    I have a Dremel tool that has to be over 35yrs old, still works like a charm! Granted it has spent most of its life sitting in storage but I can pull it out and go to work with it quickly. I will definitely replace with another one when it does finally go to the great toolyard beyond.

    Dremels are virtually indestuctible if used what they're meant for. The new cordless ones are the cats ass.
    Spend 15 bucks on the carbide cutting wheel and you'll have a friend for life.

    I bought one of the cordless ones to use in a router attachment when I was doing some renovations in one of my rental properties. I need to dig that one out and start using it as well for when I don't want to be tied down by the powercord.

    Hard to beat. One of those tools you wonder how you did without. Mine is pretty old, replaced the brushes a while back. Getting big assortment kit for not a lot of money pays off too.

    I have had my variable speed Dremel for 20 years and works great.

    I have bought a few knockoff brands in the past.
    Again, I bought a few.

    I only have one dremel now.

    Nothing but. I prefer the variable speed version.
