Very nice indeed. Recently got the 8200 model, albeit for a lot more.
It's the accessories that can cost though unless you know where to look. As yet, I don't. Heheh!

What was the lowest price? And how would you clean the tank with it? lol, may have to look into this device a little more. Thanks OP.

This is quite a good starter set for £11.99:

Sometimes it goes down to £9.99. Somethings there are a few too many of (sanding discs), but there a good selection of other bits that would cost more than a tenner in a smaller kit elsewhere.

Aldi do their own version of a Dremel, though it's not much cheaper than this. However, they also often do an accessory kit for £5 which has quite a lot of stuff in it. I think the Dremel accessories are better quality than the knock off stuff, but are very expensive. I have used the Aldi ones and they are good value, so worth looking out for.

to be honest i was a bit disappointed at the 15 dremel accessories associated with this item.
i will definitely be looking for alternatives and to augment the set with cutting discs + speed disc the mandrel

I have found my that the circular blades in my Aldi kit are far more robust than the Dremel ones acatually!

I go for the reinforced one's as they last so much longer. The stone ones are very brittle and although they still cut, if it snags they shatter real easy.
(always wear eye protection when using this cos 30K RPM makes fast shrapnel – easy to get goggles / glasses from £1 shop)

Would you recommend this Dremel over, for example, the Maplin 135W Variable Speed Rotary Tool and 163 Piece Accessory Set which is selling for £19.99.

I am looking into buying one of these but unsure if to go for the budget with more accessories or the real deal albeit with less add-ons - if anyone with a bit of experience could advise it would be appreciated.

Are these pretty safe to use? I ask because I had a draper one a few years back and the chuck for keeping the bits in wasn't great and often the bits would come flying out and it was just dangerous to use.

Are the dremels better?

Thanks
#18
Does anyone's Dremel 3000 take a few seconds to speed up when you turn it on?

After I turn on it starts slower then will eventually speed up to the set speed (in around 5-7 seconds).
Also if it's struggling to maintain speed while cutting it will up the RPM itself automatically.

Is this normal? I'm starting to think it has some sort of digital RPM control separate from the speed slider to prevent damage.

Get the dremel - in a couple of years time if it needs new bushes or other new parts you can buy these from ebay and there are loads of different attachments you can buy for the dremel.

Never had a dremel bits come out - you get debris if you are grinding or using a wire brush but thats normal and thats why eye protection is essential.

Since I started using the diamond coated metal disks (cheap from loads of places) I wouldn't ever dream of going back to the old abrasive disks that disintegrate if you look at them the wrong way. Try them...

+1 that, I purchased this kit too and other than the box trying to be clever and tilt sections of accessories out when you open, the bits seem ok quality so far.

Just not the ones with elastic to hold them on, that come with a dust mask from the 99p shop! They were really awful, the lenses kept popping out and were really hard to get back in again. Treated myself to a £2.45 pair from Toolstation, they are far more robust.

Never had that problem with my Dremel. I suspect the way you change the bit is different, because it has an 'EZ Twist Nose Cap' where you can do it all without the little spanner, just your hand. You can see it in the video on the product page, There's a slightly better explanation here. He is using the flexshaft and a multi-chuck, but attaching bits works the same way on the Dremel 3000.

On the subject of flexshafts and buying Dremel accessories, don't buy them from http://www.mandptools.co.uk/ . They send out returned items as new. Took them over a month to sort out a return and they kept sending me information abut other peoples orders. They have really horrendous customer service, it' not worth saving a couple of quid.

Hot Chulont - I would definitely buy this Dremel at £25 over a £20 Aldi/ Maplin/any other copy. I bought Macalister one as a spare from B and Q when they were clearing them out. The Dremel is better built, smoother in operation, and quieter. If I couldn't get a cheap genuine Dremel I would buy the Aldi version simply because you get a 3 year warranty.

When it comes to buying the accessories, it always seems to be the case that there are lots of bits in the set that you don't want, and not enough of the ones that you do. Unfortunately the original Dremel bits are so expensive, the kits offer better value.

The Aldi cutting discs are OK, but I found the genuine Dremel ones to be harder. With cutting discsyou must start off at a slow speed and then increase if necessary. If you try to cut metal on top speed the disc will shatter. As others have said, ALWAYS wear eye protection or you will be at A and E having bits of disc or metal swarf fished out of your eye.

I've been using my dremel (again) today, first time i've used the Aldi set (on offer about 3wks ago) & very good it is too, I'm just wondering if anyone knows a good deal for around 100 of the sanding papers that are preformed to slip over the rubber accessory?

Don't hesitate, buy this, as has been mentioned there are plenty of accys & spares, you do need to change the carbons on them (twist to unlock on each side of the motor, seat them in the springs, re-seat & re-lock, simple.

cannot reiterate enough the importance of safety glasses either.

Search ebay for "diamond cutting disc dremel" will give you loads of options. I've used mine to cut small steel bolts, pcb material, even wood at a pinch, and they've not degraded or shown any wear, so they seem to have a good lifetime.
