Dremel 4000 Review

Updated on July 27, 2011

The Dremel is a really good reliable rotary tool, but there are other good rotary tools on the market. The reason the Dremel 4000 is so good is it's attachments and accessories. With the product Dremel sends you a long list of accessories you can order from them and none of them cost very much. So unlike with other rotary tools it's cheap to replace an accessory or to get a new one.

The biggest drawback of the Dremel 4000 is it's weight. If you are going to be sitting at a desk and doing fine arts and craft type work for hours, then it's too heavy a power tool. For that kind of work I would recommend the Dremel 300 series.

In Dremel 4000 review we will look at 2 Dremel 4000 kits, the $75 and the $140 versions. The difference between the 2 is the number of accessories and attachments you get with it.
