When this arrived, i was very pleased. It feels very well built. The switches are nice, and the metal and plastic have a good heavy quality feel. The unit is considerably more quiet than the dremel and feels more powerful. However ultimately the Proxxon didn't hold up any better than the others, which really surprised me. While i did have it for 4 years, i would consider my use of the tool very light, with some wood sanding, an occasional cutting (using a cutting wheel) and some light grinding.
Recently while using it to make some shaped holes in wood the motor sparked, smoked and stopped working altogether. I would estimate my total use of this product (combined) was probably in the 1 hour range, during the 4 years i owned it.
I went back to a HF tool as while their rotary tool didn't last any longer than this one (and certainly wasn't nearly as nice to use) it was 5x cheaper. Which means i can replace it once per year if i need to for the same cost as this one. I haven't opened that one yet, and will surely regret it the moment i start using it.
Based on my experience wit this tool, I would not recommend this tool.
UPDATE***** Feb 2015
I received the repaired Proxxon rotary grinder from Proxxon USA. Repair took about 3 weeks, including shipping to and from. I would rate this as a very quick turnaround time. I could tell that it was my original tool and not a replacement, which means they actually put their hands on it. And they did a great job. I've been using it about three times a week since, usually grinding/cutting metal. So I am very happy. It is still quiet and very powerful with no other problems. Fantastic no-nonsense support.
I cannot complain, managed to get this with their higher end drill stand adapter and the little vise to do a precision drilling and reaming job that normally would be done on a milling machine. Came out perfect. But, I really was pushing the envelope, reamers are not supposed to be run at 5Krpm.
The little set of tools that come with it is good. I used the cutoff disk to slice off a piece of stainless tube and it was fine.
I did not see any evidence of burning out the speed control circuit as others have complained of, but, I kept it in mind and avoided stalling or overloading. The engineering group there must be a behind the times as there a hundreds of different 50 cent IC's that will handle speed control and load control with little heating, they need to update it.
