yea that's what I thought too .. it was overheating aswell .. I could barely hold it after a few minutes of use and was around 2500 rpms .. maybe it was a bad batch? I hope walmart isn't making their own fake dremels

Take it back, it should be under warranty. I've got the multi-speed corded one and love it. No problems and it can tackle pretty much anything.

Just make sure its Dremel brand, cuz there are cheap replicas that look the same but aren't the same quality.

Yeah, Dremel is pretty quality stuff. I've had mine for 10 years. Still going strong. Lost count of all the attachments I have for it.

With Dremmel or any rotary tool, go with the corded, plug-in type. Don't go cordless--they pretty much suck.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

100% agreed here corded FTW!. I've got a 10+ year old dremel and it's still going strong.

cordless tools suck for home use. i don't understand why homeowners buy them, because you use them once and they sit around for months while the battery pack loses its charge. i had a ryobi cordless multi-tool set years ago, and while the tools were great, the battery packs were a pain in the ass to charge/recharge and they quickly lost their charging capacity.

As a general rule, cordless tools have gotten much better over the years. New Li-ion batteries replaced the old Ni-Cd ones, allowing longer use per charge and faster charging times. There's even a new type that I'm not up to date on that's supposedly better than Li-ion, but generally, you should pull the batteries out the tool if you don't plan on using ut fir awhile, otherwise they will lose their charge. Also, lower end tools charge much slower than higher end tools, so you're waiting around longer to use them. Having said all that, when it comes to rotary tools, I agree that corded is the way to go.

Dremel sucks. Buy a Foredom, it'll be the last one you'll ever buy. Quality tools & made in china is not possible here in the US.

The chinese can make decent quality stuff but it stays in china. Do you think they have a military and space program built w/ Harbor Freight tools? No way, HF sucks.

US retailers only import to the US the lowest quality chinese junk. Meanwhile, stupid consumers buy this crap w/o regard to quality. They see price only. Quality retailers try and compete by cutting quality and price, and they go out of business. Then you are left w/ no choice to buy chinese crap. Everyone looses in this downward spiral except for the chinese who keep theere currency artificially deppresed in value.

And also understand big box stores like Home Depot etc have "special models" made for them to a specific price point. But they leave out quality or engineering to cheapen it down, but it looks otherwise like the higher end tool.

+1

I've been on a made-in-USA bender lately. Don't buy much these days but when i do, I try to buy it through a brick and mortar and manufactured here if I can. Companies need incentive to build good shit here...


That said, my old as shit dremel works great


Sidenote, interestingly enough I've heard American chopsticks manufacturers are doing quite well exporting to China
