Get Power, Control, and Comfort
Dremel tools are known for their reliable performance, incredible versatility, and exceptional comfort. The Dremel 4000 builds on that tradition with a more responsive and comfortable design, as well as added features that reflect users' most asked-for improvements. It's ideal for carving, engraving, routing, grinding, sanding, cutting, cleaning, polishing and more.

The Dremel 4000's improved motor delivers smooth performance at all speeds from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM, and electronic feedback circuitry maintains a constant tool speed under load. Its slim, ergonomic body provides a 360-degree grip zone in every position for improved precision, while a variable-speed slide allows for both fast speed adjustment and consistency at your selected speed. A strategically placed on/off switch won't interfere with the grip during use.

Lightweight, User-Friendly Design
The Dremel 4000 is both durable and enjoyable to use, with a six-foot cord, pencil grip nose cap for additional stability, and replaceable motor brushes for longer motor life. Easy-to-read speed settings make for accurate dialing, while an innovative shaft lock mechanism lets you lock the output shaft quickly when changing accessories. And the Dremel 4000 weighs just over one pound, so you can work all day without excessive strain on wrists, arms, or hands.

Attachments Provide Incredible Versatility
The Dremel 4000 is ideal when it comes to project flexibility. In fact, it's the only rotary tool compatible with all Dremel accessories and attachments, plus the MultiSaw and Planer attachments originally created for the 400 Series XPR rotary tool. In addition, this kit offers the Circle Cutter/Straight Edge Guide and the Sanding/Grinding Guide, which allows you to either guide a workpiece to a securely mounted rotary tool, or guide the tool along the edge of a flat or beveled surface.

This kit comes with an assortment of accessories, including two heavy-duty emery cut-off wheels, three sanding discs, one-inch felt polishing wheel, polishing compound, a carbon steel brush, and more. Complete projects like sanding delicate items like miniature dollhouse furniture or model train parts, polishing gemstones or tile for handmade jewelry and crafts, or gently grooming your pet's nails. And when you're done, store everything in the included carrying case for easy organization and compact portability.

The Dremel 4000 is backed by a five-year warranty.

Forgive me if I seem a little preachy, but quite a bit of people misunderstand what this tool is for: this is a high speed, LOW torque (in other words, do NOT apply excessive pressure), LOW amp (not much mechanical power), multi functioning rotary tool. Dremel will most likely NEVER make a rotary tool that is high speed high torque, high amp, because that's not their niche. This is for weekend warriors, do it yourself-er types, this for crafts and hobbies, this is NOT an industrial grade spinning tool, if that is what you are looking for, get a die grinder, angle grinder, flexible shaft motor tool, get high powered electric or pneumatic, Milwaukee, Foredom, Ingersoll Rand, something else, not Dremel. You'll only be disappointed if you go the Dremel route with that expectation.
For Dremel's, you let speed do the work. Unless you are dealing with plastic or wood, something that melts or catches aflame, then go for high speed. Slow down on metal, speed up in ceramic (don't quote me on the ceramics, that's just my experience), go middle ground for wood, slow for plastics, and so on. I suggest ramping up the speed on a practice piece of the material you intend to remove stock from, until you reach the maximum speed you can achieve with ruining the substance in question, and then, go work on the actual piece.
Here, let's cut to the chase: Positives of Dremel 4000
+It is low powered, ergo, gentler on your work, more forgiving when you make a mistake
+It is very speedy, but not TOO speedy, as in, not a pnuematic die grinder spinning at speeds that would make a bullet cringe.

BEWARE. NOT ALL OF THE NECESSARY PARTS TO USE THIS DREMEL ARE INCLUDED IN THE DREMEL 4000 SET. When attaching an included bit you must use a specific COLLET to hold the bit in place. Unlike a "chuck" for a drill the dremel does not have a variable "holder" that tightens down on a specific bit. So, a fixed sized collet is used. On page nine (9) of the user's manual it states that there are four different sized collets that may be used. This makes sense because the Dremel 4000 kit comes with many different attachments (bits). The user's manual then states, "NOT ALL FOUR COLLETS MAY BE INCLUDED". I am so completely pissed!! I was ready to begin my project and now I have to drive to my Home Depot to buy an accessory necessary to use for an bit that is included in this set. The whole point of buying a complete set is knowing that you will be able to use the tool WITHOUT having to buy an additional fifty-cent part to make the tool work. I will never buy from this manufacturer ever again.

UPDATE: Home Depot sold me the four pack of collets for $10.00.

I like Dremel products, but I can not give this rotary tool a good review. After only six months and a few jobs around the house it is shooting sparks out of the cooling vents, making popping sounds, and revving from slow to fast on it's own. I tried changing brushes but that did nothing. I looked on the web and this seems to be a common thing with the 4000, so I have to give it a one star.

The DREMEL 4000 rotary tool is the state-of-the-art version of its worldwide known versatile tool. It combines the features that has made it famous, and adds few more that makes it better that ever, such as its improved shape and ventilation system, its electronic feedback and its overall motor power, as well as the wide amount of accesories and attachments available that ensures you that, no matter what kind of proyect you have in your hands, there's always a right option ready to make your job easier and enjoyable.

EDIT (11/6/2011):
Wow...i didn't realized I wrote this review exactly a year ago. Right now i'm cutting some pieces of a wood plank of about 1cm thick using the multiSaw attachment. It scares me as hell, but after some practice i'm managing to do so and i must say is easier that i thought.

I hold my opinion from a year ago, this tool is flawless. It has never let me down. I'm looking forward to the new attachments and accesories to come.

I was very excited for the release of this product and bought it the day it hit the shelf. If you worked with the 400xp like I did, this is definitely a power surge machine, like going from a ford taurus to a ford mustang. After about a week of using it though, the machine was already not operating as new. The on and off switch was not clicking the same, and the machine "extremely" overheated when challenged with a difficult task. I had to put it down for about 20 mins it was so hot.
IN CONCLUSION: Too powerful for light use and day to day jobs. Flimsy parts (switch, and screw), and a very awkward holding position. When you pick up the machine you almost have to try to figure out what;s the right way to hold it.
