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.
+Dremel has a ridiculously nice supply of accessories for it, good from jigsawing to power planing
+It is a multi tool extraordinaire, capable of many different tasks
+Ergonomic and very useful overall, a pleasure to work with
Negativity about the 4000
-It is pretty loud for its miniscule size, a downside if you have sensitivities to noise like me
-It is low torque, so you should not use force to get work done faster
-Low amps means it is not powerful enough to hold its own in large amounts of material without choking on its carbon brushes.
-It is a multi tool, not a tool, so it will never be good enough at one job alone to be a keeper in THAT respect
The Dremel works smoothly, without a hitch, at least in my case. If I were to recommend any 2 accessories/attachments, I would get the detailer's grip, and the almighty keyless chuck. The chuck, because it is time saving in the extreme, and time is everything to the discerning hobbyist/artist. The detailer's grip, because the flex shaft has that irritating extra hassle in terms of set-up, and is less ergonomic in my opinion, AND, most of all, cannot stand a kink of less than five inches without overheating, so it really is more trouble than it is worth, to me. So, altogether, I would recommend this tool to any doing small scale, hobbyist work, DIY'ing, and similar stuff. That's all she wrote. Peace.

First, a word about terms. The solid shaft that the cutting or grinding tool is mounted on is the mandrel (or Dremel also calls it an accessory shank). When you install the cutter on the Dremel, this mandrel slides into a silver-colored hollow tube called the collet. The dark-metal nut that encases the collet and screws onto the unit is the collet nut.
All of the accessories that come with this Dremel model use 1/8"-diameter mandrels/shanks. Most other accessories that Dremel sells also use this size, although some use 3/32", 1/16" or 1/32" shanks.
When my Dremel 4000 arrived, I noticed that none of the included 1/8" shanks fit into the collet. I think some of the other buyers who ran into this problem concluded at this point that their Dremels came with the wrong-sized collet.
However, when I took it apart a little I found that the collet had just been jammed tightly into the collet nut, closing down its diameter so that the shanks wouldn't fit. I unscrewed the collet nut from the Dremel and used a small screwdriver to push the collet out of the back end of the collet nut. This allowed the collet to open up to its full diameter; all of the included shanks now fit.
So, if you buy one of these and it seems as though the shanks don't fit into the collet, give this a try before you conclude it's the wrong size. Dremel could probably stand to do a little quality control on this to make sure everything works smoothly. If you do actually need a different collet size for other mandrels/shanks not sold with this kit, Dremel sells a 4485 Collet Nut Kit (about $6-$7 in 2015 at hardware stores) that has the four collet sizes listed above.
- Easy to handle, lightweight - great for a beginner or someone not too "handy"
- Lots of different attachment options = versatile to use on many jobs
- Able to do detailed work, such as rotary sanding in tight spaces
- Not battery operated, must stay plugged in and close to a plug or an extension cord... I'd prefer it had a rechargable battery.
- Separately sold expansion attachments can be expensive, and add up
- Not increadibly powerful - this will not replace your power drill.
- Attaching new attachment heads can be a bit hard to tell if they are firmly / securely attached.
