it's pretty long & cumbersome looking compared to the dremel, (& reminds me of the "skil" (also bosch group) moulding.
Personally i'd spend the money on a cheap dremel deal & get the accessory set from lidl.

the dremel is pretty much bombproof, & been around long enough that if you drop it running, is easy enough to get info to fix it by yourself.

Yeah, I guess the Dremmel would be better...
I do like the look of the flexshaft attachment you can get for the Dremmel, but that all pushes the price up unfortunately.

Sounds more like a power walk!

This is a good buy. The dremel is way more expensive and not much better.

Dremel 3000

There's also this from Maplin

which comes with accessories and a flexible shaft tool. Mine's on order so haven't had chance to see how good it is yet.

You can often pick up a slightly older dremel for around £25, they are simple to open up & blow out (dust etc) & cheap to change brushes on, or yes you can go for the latest at £40 or so.

fact is that comparing side by side my skil vs my dremel, the skil is very cumbersome by comparison, & top heavy, this affects overall control & useability, not to mention space in small awkward areas.

The flexi shaft i'm not that big on (but mine ws the skil one & despite claims of compatability does not seem to be) however the vice gripping retractable stand (spare hand) is excellent & can be attached to the underside of many surfaces making it come into it's own, also helps not allow the drill to roll off if you let go & leave it powered up (though that's risky as it swings whilst retracting).

Don't get me wrong, i'm not knocking it (everyone ought to have a small hobby drill), just based on my experience of numerous hobbydrill sets i'd hold out for the dremel, comfortable workhorse which my daughter can also use (9)

That looks good. Thanks.

Why has this been expired? Is it likely that they've all been snapped up?
