  • Dremel - Hobby

    I was wondering if anyone has bought and uses one of these dremels from the hobby range. Im thinking of buying one to use with resin but I was looking for some reviews first....

    Only my personal opinion but I believe you pay a premium for the 'Dremel' name. I burnt one out, my fault asking it to do a bit too much, but I don't think they are robust enough for prolonged hard work.

    I looked about and found this one and this one I bought the Axminster as from reports it seems the more robust, and their after sale service if anything goes wrong is second to none.

    I've had mine for 7 months now and it hasn't lost a beat. Mine was bought mainly for the carving head, but have since found more and more uses for the drill head as time goes on.

    If your use is fairly light, I think the Clarke one could be a serious contender if only for the price. IMO
