Today’s review is one of those tools that you don’t know you need until you try it out and realize how nice it is to have around the shop. Not going to lie, if I walked past this in the store I probably wouldn’t get that “I need that” feeling but after putting this DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool, to the test, I can safely say it is definitely something that you will be glad you have for certain projects.

SPECIFICATIONS:

The DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool s ideal for sanding, polishing, cutting, finishing, and grinding. I really think that this would have been helpful for some of the smaller projects that I’ve done recently. One of the key features of the DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool is that it can be used on the go and in hard-to-reach places. First and foremost, it’s cordless. We are seeing this more and more in the tool world and its great because cordless tools really are more portable and convenient. The cordless world allows builders to pretty much transport their workshop with a little more ease and the DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Toolis no exception. Like I said, this is definitely useful for smaller projects and isn’t something that I would reach for everyday. The jewelry box that I made this past February, and the truck that I made for my nephew for Christmas would have been good projects to use this tool on because it really is not meant for large scale projects. I also could see it being helpful for DIY’ers in smaller around the home projects. The DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool includes the tool, 30 accessories, battery, charger and carrying case. Dremel really doesn’t skimp out on this package. Having 30 accessories makes this a very versatile option for numerous smaller projects. One other notable feature of this tool is the fact that the battery recharges in 1 hour or less. THIS IS HUGE. I LOVE A QUICK CHARGING TOOL, especially if you’re using it throughout the entire project. As many of you know, there is nothing worse then hearing your tools battery slowly start to dwindle down (I know you guys know the sound I’m talking about) and the fact that you can throw this on the charger and its ready to go in an hour or less makes it stand out from the competition. Lastly I want to make a note that this could be a great gift for someone who is pretty dedicated to crafting and uses a sander regularly. You don’t have to be a large scale builder or contractor to get the most out of this one and that’s what makes it such a versatile and valuable tool to have around.

PRICING:

Typically, the DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool and its accessories go for $99. This is an extremely reasonable price for something that includes so many accessories and has such quick charging capacity. Overall, Dremel tools I have found to be quality so you’re getting your money’s worth. That being said, the price on this bad boy just dropped down $20 and now you get the whole bundle for $79 which is an awesome deal.

MY THOUGHTS:

DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool

Ok, so in my honest opinion this is not a tool i will be using a ton. But with that, it's still pretty damn cool. I think theres a ton of applications for this too. Cordless tools are awesome, and a Dremel of any kind is highly versatile. With that being said, I did pull out the DREMEL 12-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool the first day i had it to sand down a weld on my Hatchet Door Handles. With the ease of use, and versatility, this tool is for sure something that most shop owners would like to have in their tool box.
