Continually Adjustable Speed for Versatility
The Dremel 3956-02 kit includes the MultiPro variable speed rotary tool, 77 genuine Dremel accessories, two clamps, a 36-inch-long flex shaft attachment and a lawn mower and garden tool sharpening attachment. The tool's versatility and continually adjustable speed (from 5,000 RPM to 35,000 RPM) means you can complete a variety of projects, from engraving letters or designs on different materials, to polishing stone or tile, to even grinding metal. And the flex shaft attachment lets you work in hard-to-reach places, such as behind or under sinks, in and around car seats or doors, or in a tight corner. The flex shaft attachment also gives you more control when handling delicate pieces, such as tiny gems, beads, stones, or even fishing lures. Finally, you can keep your garden tools, including mower blades and hedge trimmers, sharp and ready to go with the handy lawn mower and garden tool sharpening attachment.

User-Friendly Design
Weighing just 18 ounces, the MultiPro rotary tool is lightweight, compact, and easy to operate. You simply slide the switch to the appropriate number that matches the right speed for your project. If you're not sure which speed to choose, consult the illustrated manual -- pictures and text will help you match the proper speed to your job. As you work, the durable plastic housing and case resist wear and tear, the comfortable grip helps minimize wrist and hand fatigue, and the tool's six-foot cord makes it easy to maneuver.

Smooth Operation for Control and Precision
Whatever job you're working on, the MultiPro rotary tool gives you optimum control thanks to a click-and-set on/off switch that allows you to select the speed you want with complete precision. Replaceable motor brushes ensure long life, while the MultiPro's ability to accommodate more than 150 Dremel accessory bits lets you move quickly from one type of project to another.

This is a fantastic tool for a home owner or craft enthusiast. The range of small tasks that you can achieve with the Multipro is unbelievable and easy, even for an untrained person.
This kit includes a flexi-shaft, which helps you get into corners by extending the accessory bit using a long flexible shaft. You can buy the shaft separately if you already own the tool, but it's cheaper to get it with the kit if you're buying for the first time. The carrying case is attractive, and fits everything with room to spare.
Some of the things you can do with your Dremel tool include drilling holes to hang pictures, putting lot numbers on your house, engraving your initials on items you don't want stolen, sharpening scissors and lawn mower blades, cleaning jewellery or golf clubs, giving sticking doors and windows a quick repair, cleaning silverware or brass or even mag rims, installing your car stereo and adding auto accessories to dress your car, trimming nails that are sticking up, regrooving damaged screw heads, sanding in hard to reach places, and so on.
It is however a small tool, so you shouldn't expect it to sand a dining table like a belt sander, or cut out a large wood pattern like a scroll saw.
You need a tiny spanner to change accessories, but it's included in the kit, along with different mandrels to hold the bits securely. There is a wide range of accessories available for even more tasks, and a great additional purchase is the tile cutting attachment, which allows you to do bathroom tile repairs with a lot less mess and guess work.
The secret to the Dremel is the speed, with a range of varying speeds up to 35,000 rpm, which you control yourself. The instruction booklet is very detailed, and gives you lots of tips. Dremel also has an amazing website, with step by step how-to guides.
Every home should have a Dremel Multipro

Before I bought the corded Dremel Multi I used to use hand tools. The results were good but took time to produce. I then saw an advert on the television for the Dremel. I then went to a tool shop to see it and it's rivals. The only other competitor was the Black and Decker corded Wizard. The wizard lost out to the Dremel due to it's narrower range of operating speeds and it's greater size. The Dremel also had a far greater range of accessories to supplement it's use.
>I really appreciate the way that the Dremel can do what it does so quickly so well. It can carve letters, polish to a very high standard and grind metal as well as the capability to engrave metals as well. The fact that it does not take up a lot of room, especially when you consider the wide range of capabilities it has.
>To turn the Dremel on you slide the switch to one of the numbers on the scale, the further along you go the faster the shaft rotates. You set the speed according to the one recommended in the instruction manual which has pictures to guide you as well. You then apply the tool to the surface you are working on and gently do the polishing etc., but not too hard as it can damage the tool.
>I had my Dremel fitted with a optional chuck which makes bit changes faster and more convenient than the standard collet bits. You just loosen the chuck, put a bit in, re-tighten the chuck and select the right speed and you are ready to go. It also has a decent grip for easy and comfortable holding. It is quite simply a joy to use for craft. Special shafts can be fitted to the end as well, so there is little that has been missed out.
> The flexible shaft lets me work in places where the tool can't be inserted especially some places in my jeep! It's also easier to hold the flexible shaft when working on small workpieces like fishing lures etc.

I have used Dremel's rotary tools for many years now. The tool itself along with it's separate accesories are easy to find in most any hardware, hobby or home improvement store. Combined with the advertising and (as mentioned) deceiving accesory packages, it is an attractive option to other tools on the market. However, the Dremel is NOT the best rotary tool on the market, by a long shot! I finally got fed up with the finicky speed control and very poor bearing/spindle tolerance and looked for other options. They claim the speed control has been improved so perhaps it is better now but I am not interested in wasting my time with Dremel any longer. I have found Proxxon tools offer a similar price point with German manufacturing standards that far exceed the Dremel. Smooth, quiet, powerful. A maximum of .001" runout on most of their rotary tools. Far better than Dremel. The Dremel flex shaft is another story. I used it once and almost threw it out the window. Not for the precision minded to say the least. IMHO look at Proxxon or Foredom tools if you are serious about rotary tools. If you like to tinker once in a while then maybe the Dremel is for you.

While the tool itself is satisfactory, I'm very disappointed in the limited types of accessories that came with it. I had thought that the package would be a bargain with its 77 accessories, and that I'd have what I need for my simple projects, yet I now have to buy several more accessories at great expense to me because most of the accessories are similar sanding items.
Also, the included polishing pads are not thick enough to cover the sharp metal point on the end of the attachment piece, so my projects get scratched from the protruding point! I'm very disappointed and discouraged about this tool package.
