Rotary Tools Bit-by-Bit

We looked critically at the rotary tool because it is a versatile device that is used for an array of applications. Since a variety of these types of tools are available, we found it useful to compare and contrast the different models, and look at factors such as: unit weight, unit features, range in RPMs, variety of included attachments, ease of use, comfort of grip, and warranty offered by the manufacturer.

Black and Decker's RTX Rotary Tool is a strong and compact tool which we found to be great at a multitude of tasks. We found that it is comfortably held in the palm-held and overhand position and does not bog down easily under pressure. MORE...

We found the Dremel MultiPro® 3956-02 Rotary Tool to be very easy to manage, quick to learn, and useful in a huge array of applications. The tool's variable speed function allows the user to pinpoint just the right speed for the task, ranging from 5,000 up to 35,000 rpm and the tool comes ready to go to work with a huge 77-piece accessory set.

In comparison, the Dremel 8000-01 Cordless Rotary Tool provides most of the same functions as its corded counterpart, but with it comes the versatility of being able to go almost anywhere... fitting easily in a pocket, tool belt, tool box, or even glove compartment. This tool is great for minor sanding, polishing, detailing and cleaning—particularly where there is a lack of power supply. MORE...

Craftsman's rotary tool is a solid, dependable tool which ties in certain elements of both the Black & Decker and Dremel rotary tools. It fits nicely in the hand, comes with a tool stand and 100 accessories, and performs at 9 different speeds , between 5,000 and 35,000 RPM. MORE...
