Take it from me,never use it the try getting wax out your ears.

I was considering getting one of these, but there are a couple of reviewers who say that the motor is made of cheese and it both stalls easily and some have burn't out after little use. I suppose it could be bad luck or a case of a good name now cutting (quality) corners to save costs? But are there any other brands which are highly rated but don't cost the earth?

Amazon. It burns out it goes back, no worries.

Or get the OEM one from Maplin which comes with electronic speed control, more bits, a bigger box and includes flexi tool. £5 more though but well worth the extra. A 'Dremel' flexi tool is £20 on its own!

& remember it's a small tool, not a big motor, "hobby" ..used within design limits, anyone can write a review, (qualified or schmuck)!

A dremel is a simple bit of kit, the BRUSHES are designed to be replaced, cheaply & within about 5 minutes ..no biggy.
ALso you are meant to allow it to cool down periodically & after (running it to create airflow without load, to assist in longevity of the product.

many folk have been using theirs for years, & recognise the need to blow them out (dust, wipe down & partial dis-assembly) to help a work-tool work.

I've used mine for some real taskmaster jobs within reason & allowing it to cool, not all at once or hurry hurry hurry would have taken longer with guess what!? a burnt out motor. ..best use i've had out of mine was removing concrete whilst renovating a fireplace in order to re-establish the line for the rim of terracotta chimney flue! ..it would have been a nightmare without it & i'd have messed it up with a cold chisel! ..took all of one accessory to do over an evening or 2!
Sterling kit.

Technical Support via BOSCH uk, ..any doubts speak to them

get a kid familiar with this, (small hands small tool, less likely to screw up) to encourage a can do attitude! ..like my 9yr old daughter.
Empowering do it all kit ...Heat!

Tools like this are for small light jobs, not stuff that would be better off with an angle grinder. I used a cheap maplin one for about 5 yrs before it died. now using another maplin one and as someone above said as long as its not a heavy duty job and you dont push the motor it should be fine. havent used this brand but a similar cost generic brand should be fine.

Love these tools used mine for all sorts of DIY jobs

low duty use exactly, unless you are building a scale model of the Eiffel tower out of matchsticks, (and not knocking you if you are) (_;)
what practical use are these?

I use mine a lot for small jobs where you couldn't use an angle grinder. They are really handy, I have this exact model and it workd really well

Have to disagree. I used one of these to restore an old car - cutting out rotten areas of various thickness. I couldn't have done the job without it as it got into places an angle grinder couldn't. After about 15 months of hard use the motor stopped, then I found out that Bosch (who handle the warranty as said above) cover it for 2 years. I called them and they promptly arranged for it to be collected by courier and had it back to me within a week with all the internals replaced.

Anyone know if this is any good for carving pumpkins? Granted its a bit late, but fancy my hand at one next year

I have one of these and have mostly used it in place of an angle grinder where space is tight. But I've always found it a bit slow going. What I would love to have is a mini angle grinder, maybe half the size of a 4.5 inch, but the only ones I have found so far are air powered.

depends, real or foam, straight cut through or shading?
for shading clay tools / wood tools are "generally" the way to go.

have some heat

@rbororob ...go join the forum (free) at my pumpkin shading over the internet nattering mates site "Stoneykins" they / he will sort you out! very good chap & people, he's got between 7000 - 8000 patterns predominantly shaded, don't be put off, give everything a go, as it's where understanding of the pumpkin flesh is borne out, Ray pops in from time to time across a few sites too, & if you want to concentrate on more carved sculptural pieces he does have a very good site as well as dvd's available.

This is one of ken's shaded on a foamie http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b53/stoneygod/013a.jpg
Lots of experience & pointers to good sites from folk there! ...tell em Gus sent you.

No, tried with mine and they don't work well for that task, lots of pumpkin all over the place and just messes up the drill however everything else i've used it for has been great.

Wouldn't be without my multi-tool, got a Dremel, Silverline multi-tool and a Lidl cordless version (both the later two came with accessory pack - far cheaper than buying Dremel parts). Cordless was really handy for cutting off rusted bolts on the car and bike without running extension leads all through the house.
Dremel is the one I wouldn't recommend, especially given the prices for comparable kit, the locking mechanism for the drive shaft (press button thing that locks it so you can tighten the collet) broke making it useless - made from plastic I feel - while the other two taking similar amounts of usage are still going strong.
Silverline also comes with a better guarantee - 3 years - and is a third cheaper than this price and has similar spec motor 135W vs 130W of the Dremel 3xxx.

That appears to be the same image that Roger posted in this thread, but it doesn't look like the same tool from the Maplin's website from Roger's rotary tool post. The one on the Maplin's website has handle that comes out a right angle:

No mine has Electronic speed control and looks different, the guy in the reviews was moaning about the bits etc, but they're standard, you don't really get good and bad quality ones in a kit. Dunno he managed to snap the chuck, he must have been using it as an angle grinder or summat, it's for lighter work, anything bigger he should use a drill and drill bits. (_;)

The one from Maplin I've used quite a few times now (without letting it cool much, which you're supposed to do apparently! Ooops!) but it seems very reliable. Think the make is Intertek:

What?

You can get it for this price from B&Q - good deal but not sure why it's sooooo hot?

These are great little tools but not for heavy duty stuff. We used ours to get the last bits of paint from intricate mouldings on a cast iron fireplace - but we used a fibre pad to get rid of most of the paint first. We also use it to cut metal when restoring our old car, but only for small bits as the cutting disc willbe worn down completely after 6 inches of cutting.

It's down to £25.48 now, not a bad price
