Why this blog?

Before I bought my first (and so far only) Dremel rotary tool, I spent a long time browsing for reviews and opinions. The most comprehensive reviews I found were from professional tool review sites, where people who use tools like the Dremel for a living discussed things like torque, RPM, and how long it takes to cut through a steel bolt. While all of this was somewhat useful, I kept hoping to find a site where someone with next-to-zero experience – i.e. like me – would describe the tool and its accessories and uses in terms I could more easily relate to. Unfortunately, that content was nowhere to be found.

Now that I am a very happy owner of a Dremel 4000, I am taking an opportunity to provide others with what I had hoped to find myself just a short while ago – a very non-expert, amateur look at the tool and its uses, mostly just for fun but also for a few projects around the house.

I hope you find this useful!
