John Malecki uses the DREMEL Stylo+ Versatile Craft Tool on wood

I so what I can to put a personal touch on every project I built. Sometimes it’s the style of the build, sometimes it’s the quality lumber choices, but more often than not, it’s me slapping my John Hancock right on the wood. Something that says, “Here ya’ go, John M.”

I talk about DREMEL tools a lot -- I know. But the DREMEL Stylo+ Versatile Craft Tool really deserves some attention, supplying power in places I wasn’t even sure I needed it.

DREMEL Stylo+ Versatile Craft Tool Specifications

Here’s What the Dremel Stylo+ Brings to the (Sometimes Literal) Table

The DREMEL Stylo+ is designed to be the all-in once craft tool for etching, engraving, and even sanding. I was initially concerned that it wouldn’t be able to supply the power I need to my wood and metal working projects and was nothing more than another rinky-dink etching tool that would stall out as soon as it hits a nice piece of hickory.

My first impression upon unpackaging the DREMEL Stylo+ was how much it resembled a basic pen. Thin, light, and ergonomic, I was instantly impressed by my ability to jaunt it around with ease, but I was still worried it wouldn’t be strong enough to my projects.

So I put it to the test, of course. I broke out a slab I had lying around (as one who has a workshop does), plugged in the Stylo+ with the engraving cutter attachment and went to town. Pushing through the first bit of wood with ease, I knew the DREMEL Stylo+ was ready for the big leagues.

I wanted to see what else this thing could do, taking a solid look at the 15 attachments that are included. The Dremel Stylo+ comes with everything from polishing wheel attachments to sanding drums, making it a great asset for any crafter’s arsenal. I’m known for my big furniture builds, but I also find myself building stuff like this wooden toy truck for my fiance’s nephew. This sool it great for shaping up and sanding down tiny rivets in projects like that (and I’m kicking myself wishing I had this thing sooner).

Reaching between 5,000 and a truly whopping 22,000 RPM, the DREMEL Stylo+ may even be too fast for its own good. I mean, this thing can cut through rock, wood, and etch metal -- it’s no joke. On top of engraving my wood and metal projects, I can see myself etching glass of future projects with the grinding bit. I can see all the wedding DIYs this thing is going to assist with now and frankly, I’m a little scared.

Pricing:

How the DREMEL Stylo+ Versatile Craft Tool Stacks Up

I know I review a lot of DREMEL tools and I’m constantly impressed by their value. But this thing is an absolute steal at $49.97. Not only do you get the Stylo+ and all 15 attachments for this price, but it comes with a 2-year warranty -- which gives you the freedom to get adventurous and really test out its power. Oh, the places you’ll go.

My Thoughts:

The serious skeptic has met his match.

John Malecki focuses on using the DREMEL Stylo+ Versatile Craft Tool

I’ll admit, I was a skeptic. Cutting stone, engraving wood and metal, and etching glass are some hefty promises to make, but the DREMEL Stylo+ fulfills them. This thing is easy to use and quite versatile, making it a great thing to keep around for everything from your most complex shop builds to household chores to school projects (I sure to miss blowing everyone out of the water in woodshop). I’m still wrapping my head around its ability to reach 22,000 RPM while feeling as light and precise as it does. That kind of power doesn’t go unnoticed, which is why I completely recommend the DREMEL Stylo+ for not only makers like myself, but as a necessity for all crafters.
