I am looking to buy my first Dremel-type tool and wanted to make sure
that I am buying both good *quality*
and good *value*
. I am looking to
use it for a wide variety of home repair and beginner-to-intermediate
I am considering the Dremel 400-4/70H from Home Depot, listed as:
Dremel 400 Series XPR Rotary Tool with XPR Planer Attachements. Total
4 Attachments, 70 Accessories in XPR Deluxe Storage Case.
Price is $99.
Specifically, the 4 attachments are: Exclusive XPR Planer, Cutting
Guide, Flex Shaft, and Lawn Mower and Garden Tool Sharpener
- Anybody have any experience with this model from Home Depot?
- Is it good quality?
This model seems to be unique to Home Depot.
- How does it compare with the similarly priced ($99) Dremel 400-3/71
Series XPR Kit which I have seen listed on Amazon and elsewhere on
the net, including the official Dremel website?
Specifically, the 400-3/71 kit comes with the following 3 attachments per the
Dremel site: Planar, Flex Shaft, and Circle Cutter (though the
Amazon website mentions also the Lawn Mower and Garden Tool
- Which is the better version and deal?
- Should I be considering paying more for the even fancier Dremel
400-6/90 Series XPR Kit which comes with the additional 2
attachments of the XPR MultiSaw and the Flex Lite but costs $50
- Any other comments on alternatives models or manufacturers that I
