Dremel Rotary Tools | Some Christmas and Birthday Shopping Ideas for Big Boys Toys

Updated on March 17, 2011

If you have a Big Boy to shop for that is a handyman, a modeler, a model railroader, a craftsman, or just generally fiddles and piddles around the house. Dremel makes a series of tools that great presents for hobbyists and handymen alike. This is the kind of stuff we Big Boys love to have. The really good news here is that even in trying economic times like these there is a model that can fill the need within most any budget.  I will highlight two of the most popular models here but there are many in between so check the features and do your shopping diligence here.

Dremel 4000-6/50 Speeds from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM Compatible with all Dremel accessories and attachments Includes 50 accessories 360-degree grip zone for control in any position Deluxe carrying case included

The chief differences in most models are weather or not they have fixed speeds (and how many settings) or variable speeds. Some tasks are better performed at slower speeds like polishing, or detail work with plastics, while higher speeds are needed for metal cutting, engraving, and some drilling. The ergonomics of the tool itself also affects cost and is particularly important if you huny is likely to use the tool daily, or say more than 5 times per week, while the less ergonomically designed are fine for the more occasional user.

One of the other questions to ask your self is how is your sweetie likely to use it? Corded vs Cordless are also one of the main options though you can find both throughout the price range. So if through your observation, your craftsman is mostly doing things at a workbench corded is probably fine. If he is more likely to be working on large projects like Furniture, or has a model railroad layout cordless may be what’s best for him. I personally have one of each. Whichever is right for your Huny there will be some big smiles on that special day.

Stocking Stuffer Alert!!

The Dremel Moto Tools are the type of product that lends itself to great and inexpensive add ons, that make wonderful stocking stuffers for the guy that already owns one, or to go along with that new one under the tree. A note here, some of these accessories are matched to certain models of the Dremel Moto Tools, so please check and see what model tool he already has or shop for a one of the tools that will work with the accessorie you are planning to give. Here are a few ideas that you may find useful. Happy Shopping and a Merry Christmas to you all!

      Big John (HammerJammer) - I have always wanted to own a Dremel (or the equivalent) even though I do not have the faintest idea of what use I might actually make of it.
