FACK YO Cordless Dremel - July 13, 2009, 09:03 AM

The cordless dremel tools are absolutely WORTHLESS!!!

Never, I repeat, NEVER buy a cordless dremel, ever in your lifetime or anyone else's lifetime.

The batterlies do not hold enough juice to complete even the simplest of tasks. I've had this thing for 2-3 years, and I have regretted not getting an electric one every single damn time I've used it. I really lost it yesterday when I had to charge the battery 4 times just to cut through a hollow brass fitting on the top of the KTM's carburetor. The thing is just a stupid piece of crap. If I never contribute a single useful thing to dot net from here on out, I am still satisfied to have passed on the advice against buying a cordless dremel. Do yourself a favor and get the electric one--the one with the cord. Trust me.

He probably doesn't want it back. If anyone had mine, I'd only be interested in getting the attachments back to use on the proper one I'm going to go out and buy this week.

I'm thinking of sending the cordless unit to dremel headquarters and saying they can have it back because I don't want it taking up valuable space in my garage anymore, space that I could fill with jars of air that would be more useful than this thing.

I agree. I was talking about this over the weekend. Only good for quick tasks that dont require lots of juice.

I have the plug in joint and I love it! I, generally, hate cordless power tools. I can deal with the "aggravation" of plugging stuff in if it means I don't have to guess how much charge I have when I just need to do a simple task like hanging curtains or something.

Besides the batteries not holding a charge, they die all together in <1 month.


Since it's on topic, the attachment listed below isn't worth a shit when sanding 3/4" ply wood when trying to shape a hole.


This weeekend we managed to chew thru at least 10 of these sanding attachments.

They either fell apart or spun up and down the rubber housing over and over again (made for a long day).

+1 or should I say -1 for the cordless. However, the full electric one when used with the grinder attachment can make serious mincemeat out of a lawn mower blade if you aren't careful. Just gobbles it all up.
