Choosing A Dremel Tool
The Dremel tool that is right for you will depend on the types of projects you want to use it for. So, to begin the process of choosing, think about what you want to do with the tool, pick a project. Next do your homework. Research the features and capabilities of each of the tools you are considering for a particular project.
After that, try to imagine yourself completing that project using the tool that you are evaluating. Will it be easy and comfortable to use? How many of the project tasks will you be able to do with this tool? Will you be able to use it in tight places or will you have to limit your work to the workbench? Does it just feel right . . . or wrong? If you can't see yourself completing the project using the tool, then it may not be right for you.
Easy and Comfortable To UseEach Dremel product has been ergonomically designed to ensure that your hands won't get sore or cramped while using it. Each tool has a soft-grip handle making it more comfortable to use and giving you more control while working on your projects. So regardless of which Dremel tool you decide is the right tool for you, be assured you will be purchasing a very easy to use, comfortable and reliable tool. And the Dremel warranty is one of the best in the industry.
Cord or CordlessYou often have the choice of getting a Dremel tool with a power cord or without. So when you decide on the tool you want, and if you want the freedom to use your tool anywhere, be sure and check to see if Dremel offers a battery driven version. In the past the cordless tools typically had less power than their corded cousins.
With Dremel's introduction of their Lithium-Ion batteries, cordless tools that provide lower power is no longer the case. And most cordless Dremel tools come with two lithium-ion batteries and a quick charger. This means that your projects will rarely be delayed because of low battery power. And in some cases, the Lithium-Ion batteries are interchangeable among Dremel tools.
Finding the Best Price for Dremel Tools
On Amazon.com these days, you can compare Amazon's price with the prices offered by other stores that sell the product you’re looking for.

Accessories and Attachments
There are over 200 attachments and accessories available from Dremel making every Dremel tool extremely versatile. While not all of Dremel's accessories and attachments can be added to or used with every Dremel tool, most tools come with a good starter set. And a variety of additional attachments is almost always available.
So make sure you know which accessories come with the tool you are evaluating. Make sure all the attachments that you'll need for your project are included. If you do need an attachment that isn't included with the tool, you will be able to get it individually or included in one of the many attachment and accessory packs.
By the way, you should also check to see if the tool you are evaluating is available in a kit. Getting the tool in a kit will save you money. Kits usually contain more bits and accessories than you think you will need. But, believe me, no matter which tool or tools you decide on, you'll soon discover that your Dremel tool is even more useful than you imagined and that you're reaching for it often.
When you get your Dremel tool, I recommend that you get an accessory kit to go along with it. Nothing's more frustrating than starting a project and finding that you don't have the accessory that you need to get the job done.
