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.

I feel like my 395 is more stable speed wise when the tool is not under load. Out of the box, the 4000 would pulse somewhat when not under load. Most of that went away after I broke in the brushes (run it for five minutes on maximum speed with no load), but it still does that a little. When under load, however, the 4000 seems to be more stable speed wise. It also seems to have somewhat more torque than the 395 has. That makes it a little easier to control. I really like that the switch and the speed control are separate. I can set the speed and turn it on and off as needed. I also like that the speed control gives an approximate indication of the speed of the tool. All you need to do is multiply the number by 1000 to get the approximate speed. I also like that the switch is right at the head of the tool so that it is easier to turn it on and off. I have mixed feelings about the rubber coating on the body of the tool. The 395 I have does not have that. The rubber coating seems to make the tool easier to grip and dampen some of the vibrations though which is nice. I have mixed feelings about this EZ twist nose cap which has an integrated wrench. I use a keyless chuck on my Dremel, so I can easily change bits. The nose cap cannot loosen or tighten this chuck. You will need the regular wrench for that. The EZ twist nose cap only works with the collet nut. I do like that the new collet nut has four faces to make it easier to use this EZ twist feature, but while I do have a full set of collets, and they can be useful in some circumstances, I don't use them as often because I have the chuck, and when I do use them, I prefer to just use the wrench because I only use collets for more heavy duty work, and I need them to be tighter than the EZ Twist can get them. Also when the EZ Twist is used, it just seems really fiddly. It isn't as positive as the wrench is when it is tightening the collet. It just seems to me to be a kind of gimmicky feature that could be good in an emergency, but kind of clunky in day to day use.
The accessory and bits provided are kind of a fascinating selection. You get a random sampler of cut off wheels, a few small sanding discs which, even years ago, didn't really seem too useful. They are tiny, and they don't do a lot. You might be able to get more done hand sanding than using the little discs. The drum sander is useful, not necessarily for sanding, but for shaping and carving wood and some plastics and metal. There is also a small wire brush which can be very useful, two small grinding stones for sharpening, a cutting bit, and a small cutter. It really is a tiny, but random selection. I'm not entirely sure what the bit kit was made for. I also wonder about the choice of the Fiberglas reinforced cutoff wheels. Those are cutoff wheels I use a lot, but I use the EZ Lock version. The kind provided in the bit kit tend to eat up mandrels for lunch. I went through a number of mandrels until the EZ Lock version came out. As for the accessories, they are quite interesting. There is a circle cutter and sanding/grinding guide. I haven't found so much use for them. They seem kind of niche use accessories. In all the time I have owned a Dremel, I have seen these accessories in the store, but they were never on my list of things to get. My 395 came with a flex shaft, and that was one of my most used accessories. I even got a new one when my original one stopped working properly.
I really like the manual pack that came with this tool. The regular booklet is a lot like the one that came with my 395. I think a lot of the warnings are exactly the same. The quick start type guide was quite nice and eye catching though. It was also easy to read and understand. The manuals for the accessories (circle cutter and sanding/grinding guide) were included too, and that was helpful.
I have mixed feelings about the case. I love how small and compact it is compared to the one that came with my 395. I also love how everything including accessories such as the circle cutter and sanding/grinding guide slots into place and doesn't fall out or move around. There is even a slot for the flex shaft. The case of my 395 has a tray where you can store all your bits. This one doesn't really come with that. This new case can only hold three 1/8 shank bits and one 3/32 shank bit. One thing I like in this new case though is that you can snap in a small case of accessories. They include one of these with it. The small case has partitions, and you can arrange small parts and some bits neatly inside. I would worry about bits hitting each other and getting chipped or dull, but I do like the way the small case holds all the small parts and keeps them organized. The case of my Dremel 395 had a small place on the bit tray where you could put small parts, but if someone bumped into you, the small parts would end up everywhere no matter how neatly you arranged them before closing the case. This small case is so much better for these small parts. I no longer have to worry about random cutoff wheels and sanding bands and disks floating around randomly in my case. I also don't have to find small tins and containers to put them in so that I could put them somewhere so that they wouldn't get lost. One thing I have mixed feeling about the case though is that the case uses living hinges for everything from the two clasps in the front to the hinge on the back. The case for my Dremel 395 has actual hinges made of plastic on the back of the case and clasps that are not hinged, but are springy and don't have to bend like the living hinges do. I wonder if it will last as long as the case for my 395. I don't feel like the living hinges are very confidence inspiring.
In all, this tool seems quite nice. While there are some things that give me mixed feelings, overall, it seems quite good.

While it worked it was pretty cool. I like the adjustable speed and the ability to cut a perfect circle in drywall.Read more
