Thanks OP, bought one.

Love my Dremel and it's a great price for this kit.... Seem to hardly ever use mine but I still love it!

Bought the normal kit with 15 accesories couple of weeks ago for £32 from amazon warehouse, brand new with just a scuff on the box! Still hot for this though

good items but a bit lethal, zero protection

Tempting. I've always wanted a Dremel even though I would rarely use it. What things could I do that I don't currently in this boring, Dremel-less life of mine?

^^ this.

It scares the crap out of me. I'm no health and safety freak by any stretch of the imagination but on the two occasions I've used my Dremel Multitool I've felt incredibly lucky that I still had all my my fingers in tact and that I hadn't severed an artery anywhere on my body.

There's absolutely no safety functions on it at all. If it slips from your hand it won't stop, it will just keep on going as there is a slider control for on -> faster -> really really fast. No auto turn off if you move your hand away from the slide control.

I avoid using it if at all possible.

Oh, and for the love of God use eye protection with it. I didn't and on the second (and probably last) time I used it on the oscillating cutter tool it shattered into pieces and one of those pieces nearly went in my eye.

Death trap.

But a good priced death trap.

No heat from me though as I quite like most members of HUKD and think they deserve to keep all their bodily appendages. Also the NHS can't afford for too many of these to be in circulation.

Had one for years and it hasn't been useful at all, you have to buy so many pricey attachments to do various things and being a tool that is supposed to combine many functions into one it ends up performing all those functions poorly.

I wish I had bought a cheap sander, jigsaw, pillar drill etc separately because nothing will perform as good as a dedicated tool. The automatic variable speed is highly annoying (will up the speed if it's struggling regardless of the speed selected). It runs too fast to drill or cut things like plastic without it melting and mdf starts to burn! Too brutal for detailed model work and too weak for heavy duty stuff. High speed low torque is basically useless.

But the worst thing is because none of it's sides are flat you can't mount it to anything to make it a table saw or pillar drill without buying even more stuff! They have gone out of their way to make a collar thread non standard so you see people crudely zip tying them to pieces of wood! Never managed to cut a straight line with it ever.

It's also dangerous as your holding the spinning disc right in the line of your eyes without any type of guard. Even with safety googles if the disc explodes (which apparently they do all the time) it could cause serious injury. Bought because everyone said it was a must have tool and it never lived up to the hype for me.

By a £10 dedicated tool for each task instead!

Amen sister.

Had discs shatter on me when I borrowed a friends. Not fun.

Man up, put some specs on and take control. Great piece of kit, use mine all the time!

To be honest, saying that the device is a death trap, coming from someone who wouldn't instinctively wear eye protection using a dremel, it's hard to take your opinion as a rational person seriously. For any hobbyist or DIY work a dremel is perfectly safe to use and if it's slipping out of your hand, either you don't know how to use it properly, or the material you are trying to cut isn't suitable for the job you are using it for.
Additionally, they are probably the best made rotary tools on in a market full of cheap, own brand products that would most definitely warrant your initial opinion.
This is a deals site and I paid £30 for the dremel in this kit on its own, so for all the additional accesories, it's a bargain. Even the flex shaft is £20 seperately!

I bought a non brand one off amazon for Raspberry Pi robot making, worked fantastic although ill second the whole safety concerns. I had 4 of the circular disks snap, one his me just above the eye brow. Eye protection is a must, I made the mistake of forgetting to put mine in the first time a disk snapped and I won't be forgetting that error any time soon, scared the life out of me!

Well in this thread of 11 posts a few people have mentioned about the need to wear eye protection as they didn't when the disk shattered so I'm clearly not the only one stupid enough not to think I needed one.

It never occurred to me that cutting a small bit of plastic would cause the disk to shatter, break & fly off near my face. I've never had a piece of machinery actually shatter on me before, it's not something I would expect to happen. Ever. Especially cutting a piece of plastic which it should have easily coped with.

The machine should have an auto-shut off when you remove your hand from the slider/switch/button. It would be a simple safety feature to implement.

My word. People calling people this a death trap....classic HUKD. No doubt some of you would manage to take an eye out with an electric toothbrush.

Wear protection like any powertool. Pay attention to what you're doing. And if you can't manage that, leave it to someone who can manage it.

If you want to know what a real deathtrap is like, go and work in a metal or chemical factory with heavy machinery.....but a Dremel being a death trap....sums up the sad state of STEM in the UK at the moment really.

Right?

Remember ladies and gentlemen, this is a power tool.

A recent angle grinder deal had nobody complaining about the fact that it's dangerous, despite being able to murder you about 5 times more quickly if you're not using it properly. Wear eye protection when using it, and a respirator as well if appropriate. Just because it looks like a toy doesn't mean that it doesn't have the potential to inflict damage - if it can cut and grind wood and metal, it can certainly make mincemeat of your fingers, face or whatever else it comes into contact with - common sense.

With kerf of barely 0.5mm, cutting discs will shatter with the slightest bit of twist or lateral pressure - generally being used for close/fine work, that means ending up mostly in your face - eye protection: common sense!

Why wouldn't anyone wear eye protection when using any power tool?

Difficult to take some of these posts seriously if you can't observe the most basic safety procedure

Yep. Shattering a disk is almost always the users fault too. Either allowing it to get too hot, using the wrong disk for the wrong material, or moving it in the wrong direction while it's spinning. Alternatively, someone purchased a pack of cheapo chinese disks for next to nothing and they broke.

I'm honestly amazed at the stuff people post on here when it comes to tools.

Yea death trap is a bit dramatic, use common sense as you would do with any power tool. +1 on the cutting wheels shattering.

On a side note, looking for some safety specs as I wear glasses all the time. Any suggestions on good ones to buy?

I'm a big fan of bolle glasses although to be fair I've never put them through the paces from a safety aspect as I use them more for cycling:

I think we are becoming few and far between, a rare commodity

This is a great deal considering the price of the flex shaft and bits you effectively get the dremel free.

I have owned a dremel for 10+ years and have never ever had a problem with shattered discs.

If you are experiencing shattered discs try checking the disc is suited to the material, and that you do have the dremel at the correct speed for the usage.

I would not consider it a lethal tool, just a tool to use your brain with.

There is a workstation available (extra cost) that can assist as a pillar drill and also a with grinding etc and also a mini router table (which can be used as a mini sander too) and plunge router attachment. I find it is very flexible!

Good if you don't wear prescription glasses all the time but I do unfortunately.:(

just got an email will be delivered tomorrow 10/sep/2016

Mine has arrived. Great price. Wish I'd got another for a Xmas present.
