The build quality of this product is excellent however I do have one quirk about it, the shaft locking mechanism is plastic and not metal which poses a worry for me in the future. Another con is that the tool cannot be operated for periods of 20 minutes or longer or else risking overheating. However any good DIY can handle this with care. Another huge mistake made be lots of people is that they force the tool and I'm here to report that thats not true. Just ease the tool into the groove and let the speed do the rest.
Initially all I really wanted was a dremel, a tool to get into tight spaces to grind bolts off, maybe cut some steel pipe under a sink, use small bits to sand or grind paint/burrs off metal, etc.
I got this at a pawn shop, for $35. I got the Bosch 1210 die grinder for $100 on an amazon Christmas sale. So now I can compare them for anyone wondering what the difference is.
The 1210 is 4.6 amps. Dremels are 1.15 amps. That means you can push the bosh about 4x harder, with bits 4x as big, or run it 4x as long before the motor burns out. The 1210 is also about 4x bigger than a dremel, and 4x heavier. And finding attachments for the 1210 is also more difficult, and 4x more expensive. For example 4 burrs for a die grinder will run $30, while a 160 attachment kit for a dremel is also $30.
The 1210 can easily cut through steel pipe. A dremel would take a beating doing a task like that, but it's easier to maneuver to say, use a flap disk to sand the wooden pane dividers of an old window to get cracked lead paint off, or cut a blister pack open.
I've used the dremel more. Unique bits and attachments are much easier to find for the dremel because it is a more standard tool for your average consumer. Most Home Depots and Menards don't carry a single die grinder for example.. unless it's battery powered (and those are basically Dremels). The dremels excel at cutting, sanding, and buffing wimpy things, like plastic. I've used my dremel for modifying my computer in various ways, that required a feather touch, and like I said, on inside corners of windows.Read more ›
If I were to change anything it would be to have a tray to hold the attachments, But the small plastic box that it comes with now, Will do just fine until I make one.
After all it should be quick work with this new tool.
"This tool ROCKS." ;-}
Durability is clearly and issue.

We surprised and pleased our son in law with this Dremel at Christmas time. He had borrowed and used our Dremel in the past. So we were happy to give him a Dremel of his own.Published on January 28, 2012 by Grammy
