Let me say for starters that I haven't been a big Black/Decker fan for a long time(Black and Decker quit making tough power tools around 1990-1991).If I wanted a power drill currently....I'd buy a expensive/sturdy drill.Secondly,I've used Dremel 395 models for a long time,yes I've found them to be expensive but they do the job.So what could be better than a Dremel tool?A Black & Decker RTX-these are twice the motor power of a Dremel Tool,very well designed and comfortable to use(has a very nice rubber grip for extensive handling options during use),has a universal collet to except a massive range of dremel and aftermarket accessories(including a threaded section for the Flex Shaft),and a cool Flip Lock system to making changing bits a one-handed operation.Did I mention the RTX is half the price of a Dremel Tool.This tool is huge competition against Dremel,and my hopes for the RTX model is that it will become a main staple by Black/Decker and more advanced models will be released years down the road.Get a B&D RTX and save yourself some money :)

I still have and use my Dremel #245 and my Dremel cordless MiniMite 750, but after reading the other reviews on this black and decker I gave it a try and bought one. My Dremel 245 gets burning hot fast. Wow what a great alternative to Dremel models. My Dremel #245 would heat up tremendously after a short period of use. (Yes I checked the bushings on my Dremel 245 and they are still good on this unit). The black and decker with the 3 speeds was powerful and relatively not too noisy as well. It has a good feel to it, sure its only slightly more girth than a Dremel but the weight distribution and the rubberized plastic where you can hold it made it very comfortable in the hand. Black and Decker has a great alternative and it fits many of the Dremel accessories I have. I have yet to encounter one that didn't fit yet. I used it with my Dremel Chain Saw sharpening tool and it fits and screws on perfectly. Note the amazon description says storage case, its not a carrying case that comes with your Black and Decker, its a draw string black plastic pouch bag. The tool sort of fits in that bag. I guess to keep the cost down they opted to give you a pouch bag instead of a hard plastic carrying case, No matter. The tool itself is excellent. It has a 3 speed dial labeled L (12,000), M (24,000) , H (30,000) . Who needs more than that? I'm very happy with it. If you always had a dremel like me, give this black and decker a try and you will be surprised at the high quality of this rotary tool.

Update (Jan 2013) Get the dremel keyless chuck. It fits and works on this Black and Decker Tool and you will never have to bother with the collet and collet wrench again. Really. Once you do that, you will never go back to using collets on this black and decker rotary tool.

I ordered this as a replacement for my Dremel rotary tool that died after using it for various art tasks 20+ years. I looked at Dremel's selections but didn't want to buy a whole kit, since I still have plenty of little bits, sanders, etc.

I only wanted the rotary tool itself, so when this one came up in my search I decided to buy it. The price and user opinions were big motivators.

So far I like this tool just fine. Noise is a little more than the Dremel... or perhaps it's simply a different pitch that I'm not used to yet. Although there are only three speeds on this Black and Decker tool, I really don't see a need for more. I like the thumb control for on-off better than the Dremel's variable switch on the side, which always felt a little awkward. The power cord on the B&D is slightly longer too, which I like.

One bit of advice if you're planning on using this with tiny drill bits like Dremel accommodates. You'll need to order a keyless chuck for this rotary tool, as the chuck that comes with the B&D only works with larger shafts. I simply robbed the keyless chuck from my old Dremel but if you don't have one, you'll need to buy it.

I purchased the RTX-B intending to use it as the cutting element on a light-duty CNC mill I built, as well as for general handheld use. While the motor power holds up under load, I was disappointed to find that the shaft wobbles excessively while spinning. Even with the tool turned off, light finger pressure against the collet would cause the end of the bit to deflect visibly. For drilling and milling tasks, this shaft wobble resulted in uneven cuts with a larger diameter than the bit itself, as the bit is not so much spinning as orbiting within the work piece. For hand grinding or cutoff wheel use, it resulted in excessive "chatter" against the work piece in some orientations.

Since I'd already invested the time building a mount for the tool, I decided to take it apart rather than try for a refund. The problem stems from the way the collet shaft is attached to the motor internally. Rather than a rigid coupling, the motor and shaft are coupled via what is essentially a universal joint. In addition, the motor itself is mounted on rubber vibration dampening pads, and so itself can move about inside the case when load is applied. Together, these factors cause the shaft end to wobble all over the place.

If you have already bought this tool and experience the same problem, it is "fixable" if you can get inside (the tool is held together by a mix of Phillips and security "star" screws). Running a generous portion of JB Weld into the U-joint, front bearing mount and around the rubber motor mounts seems to have cleared it up for me.
