Variable speed... lots of attachments
Been wanting a new Dremel to replace the one which was taken over/given to the teenager a while ago. This set is wonderful with all the attachments/accessories which come with it. The case, itself, has room to put some of the other attachments into which we bought for it separately. Husband loves the variable speed on it which we did not have on the other one. Definite upgrade! I cannot wait to do some fine engraving with extra accessories we found in addition to what comes in the kit.

I greatly enjoy the ten settings
I do not know how I have lived without a Dremel before now! As a college student, cosplayer, and someone living in a small space, large power tools are just not a option. For the small jobs that I have, this dremel gets the job done. I greatly enjoy the ten settings, although I do wish that the cord was a little longer but if that's my only complaint then I am golden!

Small Hobbyist Dream Tool
If you are a hobbyist that works with wood, plastic, metal, and more I think this would be a tool that you would want to have. I, myself, purchased this particular tool so I was able to sand down hard to reach areas on the lawn decorations I repaint for people. I must say it has definitely given my fingertips a break from trying to sand those tiny nooks and crannies. This tool comes with 28 different accessories allowing you to use it on numerous surfaces as well as being able to use it for a wide variety of things. It can be used to sand, carve, engrave, polish, shape, grind, etc, just to give you some sort of an idea of the uses I am speaking of. This particular model also has multiple speeds that range from 5,000 to 32,000 RPM and it is extremely easy to handle. The carrying case makes it rather convenient to take anywhere you may need to use it. There is a smaller accessory case included which holds all of the accompanied attachments and fits snuggly inside the carrying case, keeping everything nicely organized. Though I have yet to try this myself I hear that this tool is also useful in filing down dog’s toe nails.

Great Product. A must have.
I've had a lot of fun with this tool. It is multipurpose, and has a million different attachments and uses. You have to buy many of the attachments separately, but it comes with a decent amount right out of the box. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a hobbyist and does various things around the house. I purchased the variable speed model, but there are dremels with only one speed and those with even more speeds than mine. Make sure to find the one that is right for you. I have used it on watches, metals, shoes, you name it. The only limit is your imagination.

I'm a beginner, but it handles well.
I am new to the rotary tools, so I am still learning how to use this Dremel. After researching, I ordered the 3000 because it seems easier to handle than the larger models, and I work with smaller items. It does handle pretty well. Those buffers, with the included compound, work wonders on bullet shells! There is not much else I have done, so I'll have to come back later for an update. I am a woman with average-sized hands.

Dremel 3000 makes it easy
As an amateur carpenter most of my adult life, I have begun doing a lot more work in wood toys for grandchildren since being semi-retired. I bought the Dremel 3000 in January and have since bought the Dremel Plunge Router Attachment and extra sanding drums. My band saw, drill press, scroll saw, etc. are all essential, but this tool has added a dimension sorely needed. I recently used it to cut a 3/8" wide, 1/4 inch deep dado in cherry. I do not like my full size router because it is so big and unruly. The Dremel 3000 is very easy to control. I use it regularly to sand (and grind) between the gross cut and the hand sanding. Formerly I used various files for the intermediate work. The Dremel makes it easy.

End piece adapter broke on first use. Now I ...
End piece adapter broke on first use. Now I can't change out adapters. Had to use pliers to remove the bit that was stuck. This was not due to improper handling, I've used lots of Dremels.

Great tool, impressive power and versatility
This tool is a must have for any DIY person and I only wish I'd gotten it sooner. My favorite pieces are the cutting wheel and the sanding drum, but I tried out all the other accessories too. The grinding tips did a fantastic job sharpening my lawn mower blades. The only downside to owning this tool is that I feel compelled to buy more accessories

In constant use and still kicking.
I've been hearing a lot about how Dremel's quality has decreased over the years but I don't know how true that statement is.It's been consistently used for the past three years and hasn't posed a problem but then again, I do perform maintenance to keep it working well. I was going to get an accessory kit but I've been able to find everything I need at local swap meets instead of buying a huge kit to use 4 or 5 bits.

its a rotary tool it cuts things it grinds things ...
its a rotary tool it cuts things it grinds things it polishes things.. the only real problem i have is the case it doesn't hold the the collets very well and are prone to get shifted around or even sagged on the cord taking it out.. but since this is an issue with the case rather than the product itself it didn't lose any stars
