Top Customer Reviews
A small rotary tools is extremely versatile and you can do a lot of things with it like drilling, grinding, sanding, polishing, milling, cutting (sawing), engraving, or routing in many materials like ferrous metals, precious metals, stone, glass, plastic, or wood. There is a bit for every material and job. Most bit kits are useless as they include a lot of cheap tools such as sanding disks. Buy the right bit for the right application. You do not need many different bits. Cheap bits wear out immidiately and are a waste of money.Read more ›
Certainly, this tool is more expensive than Dremel's competing products, but it's almost unfair to compare this tool to anything Dremel makes. I have owned a lot of Dremel products, and I was considering purchasing the Dremel 4000 to use as a spindle for a homemade CNC PCB router. I had no previous experience with anything Proxxon makes, so it was a bit of a leap of faith. I'm more than happy I bought the Proxxon.
The Proxxon IB/E is 30% more expensive than the Dremel 4000, but you get about 200% more tool for your money. The tool is built with far better precision. The plastic parts of the body feel like a serious power tool, and the aluminum nose that supports the bearings makes the whole thing feel indestructible compared to other tools in its class.
You can run the Proxxon at its highest speed setting, and it's far quieter than the Dremel running at its lowest. A quieter tool isn't just beneficial to the operator's hearing. A quieter tool is also an indication of fewer wearing surfaces inside the tool (brushes, bearings, gears, etc). All Dremels I've used sound like they're actively trying to destroy themselves. The Proxxon sounds like other tools that are far more expensive.
From the perspective of a student of CNC machining, the Proxxon excels at my use as a milling spindle. Even if it wasn't a more precise tool (the most important aspect), the noise level and separate power switch puts this tool way ahead of the pack.Read more ›
The problem I had with 2 of the units (Amazon replaced the first one) were that suddenly, usually while setting the tool down just after working with it, I would hear a pop and see white smoke come from the internals, followed by a sizzling sound. This happened in two units. The first took 4 hours of use (approximate, as I didn't measure the actual minutes) and the 2nd died in less than an hour. Typical speed was 8k rpm for both, with a peak around 10k, so this was not high speed, and the tool was switched off when not going to be used for more than a minute. Exhaust air temps from the tool were warm, but not hot, nor anything I would have considered alarming. For the price, I can't suggest this tool because it breaks just as easily as a Dremel.Read more ›
