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 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.
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.

Great drill. I needed something between a power screwdriver and a large drill, this was perfect.Published 23 days ago by Heidi
Plastic garbage. Managed to use it once. The shaft wobbles, the chuck got stuck and would not unscrew from the base, and the bit "lock" is comical. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Hongzeff
