    Much bleating but little wool.

    Bartian | 28 December 2015 | In the version: 128-piece accessory set | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Compact
    • light
    • Spin a shaft, as promised
    • Engraving goes well with the flexible shaft
    • Milling in wood is not neat
    • Lots of unnecessary/unusable attachments
    • The 128 bits are half identical sanding belts, and other things you can't do anything with
    • Pretentious name for

    Although the device is very suitable for engraving, partly due to the flexible shaft, it does the other things it should be able to do very poorly.
    Milling, even with a jig, is sloppy at best. It is difficult to control (with the milling attachment) and the knife easily pushes itself into your workpiece with the direction of rotation. It is certainly not possible to work off-the-cuff. The milling attachment is rickety and only somewhat stable at the greatest depth, but there is still some play in it. You're even better off using chisels and gouges.
    The sanding belts and discs work well, but are only usable at very low revs and very small workpieces. If the workpiece is larger than a few centimeters, it will not be possible to get it flat, and with more revolutions you will have lost too much mass before you realize it.
    The grinding wheels have too small a diameter to be able to do much. Grinding off the end of a tube is possible, but not more than a few centimeters because then the device will come into contact with the tube. Because of this, you have to hold the disc at an angle, which makes it easy to go wrong. If you want to sharpen serious metal, you really need an angle grinder.
    I haven't done polishing yet, but I estimate that will go well with small objects, as well as drilling, provided you can keep it straight.

    Since there is NOWHERE to find everything in this set, which caused me to guess wrong for €159, I'll just do what Dremel himself refuses:

    Flexible shaft - Very practical when engraving! - usable

    Detail handle - Especially useful when drilling - usable

    Editing platform - To keep the device at a certain distance, or in combination with the not supplied Dremel vice to fix the dremel - usable

    Angle attachment - To get into corners or to set the attachment at an angle - useful for specific things

    Cutter attachment - To keep the cutter perpendicular to the object, but is much too rickety for that - worthless

    Line and Circle Cutter - Haven't used it yet, but won't be. Also rickety, doesn't seem reliable - unusable

    Aluminum Case - To store everything. Nice idea, but the drawer cannot be clicked closed, so it opens when it is tilted or you walk with it. Furthermore, everything is stored very inefficiently in shapes in a foam mat, so that it remains intact but almost nothing fits in it. - waste of space, purely for show

    Manual where only the device, attachments and safety are covered, but not the attachments. Nothing is explained about that, not even which mandrels should be used for which things. There's also no name/item number on it anywhere, so you'll have to google some things to find out what they're for and how to use them. The mandrels are also not explained. How the sanding discs should be attached and with which mandrel is still not clear to me.

    10 fine sanding belts (no grain size indicated) with a diameter of 15 mm
    10 coarse sanding belts 15 mm
    10 fine sanding belts about 10 mm
    10 coarse sanding belts about 10 mm
    15 sanding discs approx. 20 mm grit 180
    15 sanding discs approx. 20 mm grit 240
    2 mandrels for sanding belts
    72 total

    1 spiral cutter 3.2 mm
    1 tile cutter 3.2 mm
    2 total

    20 grinding wheels approx. 25 mm
    3 metal grinding wheels 38 mm
    2 PVC grinding wheels 38 mm
    25 total

    1 mini tub of polishing paste (too little to be really useful)
    4 polishing discs approx. 25 mm
    8 polishing discs approx. 14 mm
    1 brush that came with the polishing things so must be for polishing
    14 total

    1 metal drill 3.2 mm
    1 round head milling cutter approx. 2.5/3 mm
    2 total

    4 grinding wheels 24? mm
    1 conical grinder 2.5?-1.5? mm
    1 conical grinder 4?-2? mm
    1 cylindrical grinding wheel 11/12 mm
    1 grinder 11/12 mm
    8 total

    1 mandrel SC402
    1 mandrel 401 with thread for polishing heads? and sanding things? Explanation is missing
    1 mandrel 402 for the same things but different?
    1 collet
    4 total

    = total 127. Is the latter the dremel itself or am I missing the mandrel of the sanding belts?

    All in all, this set contains a lot of superfluous or unclear things. The accessories are too diverse to be useful to everyone, but there is far too little diversity of each type to be useful for the specialist. So don't think that you will end up with 128 accessories, because you will have to buy things anyway if you really want to be able to do something with them.
    A large part of the attachments is simply unusable, so don't fall for that either.

    My conclusion is that it is better to buy the device and accessories that you are going to use separately.
    It sounds attractive to buy a set with all kinds of attachments and accessories, but in the end it's almost just a show and it is of little use to you. The device itself is fine, but this set is just pure pretentiousness and definitely not a good buy!

    Dremel 4000, worth it?.

    Frank | 9 April 2013 | In the version: 128-piece accessory set | Automatically translated from Dutch

    After years of using the neighbor's Dremel, it was high time to get one for yourself. A dremel is typically a tool that you will use more once you own one.

    My eye fell on the Dremel 4000. Because I do quite a bit of metalworking, the extra power appealed to me. The platinum edition also includes a box full of accessories. Accessories which are often quite pricey separately. In addition, everything is housed in a suitcase, which I personally find a plus because it limits the lying around of tools and accessories.

    When opening the box, the storage case immediately catches the eye. A solid case with metal closures. In the upper part you can store the dremel together with an extension which makes it usable as a hanging motor. Also a milling attachment and a kind of handle which gives the dremel a kind of "pen" grip.

    You can store the accessories in the drawer in two boxes. There is also an attachment to give the dremel a router function and a milling attachment to mill neat straight lines and circles.

    I am someone who does read the manual. That one fails. The Dutch part contains the well-known American safety measures and rather useless announcements such as that the device works on 220 volts mains. There are drawings of the set-up and accessories, but you have to get a bit from the drawings for what they are for. This is not described.

    Then the loose attachments. There are many and they are useful. You can also find more of things that you use a lot. I have decided not to deposit the attachments in the appropriate boxes. The attachments have a function and a color code. They are not on the boxes. So I left them in the color-coded bag.

    Then the device itself. It fits comfortably in the hand and feels solid. Despite the fact that it is larger than the previous models, the device is easy to handle. Optionally, one could also use the extension, which is much narrower and can give better control, especially with fine engraving work.

    The device did not shrink on wood. Sanding and engraving was no problem. To really test the device, I released it on a 5mm thick stainless steel plate. This also turned out to be no problem. It abraded the steel with ease. The stepless speed setting certainly comes in handy here. Even with steel you can quickly sand away too much.

    Cutting iron was no problem. With one of the attachments, the dremel can be transformed into an angle grinder. Especially easy if you have to work in difficult places.

    All in all, a useful and solid device that will certainly be used more often.

    pros and cons:

    - mediocre manual,
    - moderate possibilities to store your accessories in an organized manner.

    + power available on demand
    + many accessories
    + many attachments
    + despite size, easy to handle.

    Best friend of a do-it-yourselfer
    • Good in hand
    • Practical to do fine work.
    • Good price quality
    • Do-it-yourselfer's best friend.
    • Accessories hard to find in stores

    Pleasant to use, and multifunctional.

    seems like good stuff
    • A handy overview of the parts (image) with product numbers in combination with the function for which it can be used is missing.
