amazon ships EVERYTHING under the sun to Alaska for free…but can’t ship this for $5 …c’mon amazon
(i think this isn’t amazon, but amazon owns the woot)
Cheaper than the epilator, probably can do the same thing.
Sears has some pretty good reviews
[MOD EDIT] Different model.
I believe the description is incorrect. Is currently shows this has having a 10 amp motor but a quick search of the manufacturers website seems to show 1 amp listed for these.
[MOD: good catch it’s fixed.]
Not sure I like Home Depot’s math. How does one 3 star review and one 5 star review equal a 4.5 star overall rating?
The flex shaft is worth the price of the package. I’m in for one.
I’ve been thinking about getting a rotary tool for some time but did not want to spend $100+ on my curiousity.
For $15 ($20) I’ll get a chance to play around with a rotary tool and a flex shaft attachment, which sounds good to me.
Amazon prime members can get this for $21.24. I don’t see much of a reason to rush.
It’s actually a 4 and a 5… (4+5)/2 = 4.5
Usually ships within 1 - 3 months.
In for 1, maybe.
I noticed the one to 3 month thing too. I guess we went back to pony express delivery.
Agreed. I’ll save everyone from the double post. I’m in for one too.
I totally agree. I broke my flex shaft this weekend (I use it to cut out plastic electrical boxes, to go from a single gang to a double gang for instance, and I must’ve hit the nail and snapped the shaft). $20 is a great price for the kit.
so are the accessories compatible with the Dremel brand tools?
I have one of those and would love to use the flex shaft with it…
I like the variable speed of this unit.
I was about to get this, because I am in a little rush, but it says that it ships within 1 - 3 months. “Estimated delivery: Apr. 22, 2014 - May 29, 2014”
I have this kit so this is first hand info. I also have the Dremel branded tool. So far nothing hasn’t been compatable between the two except the collets. The ones in this are slightly larger than the Dremel brand so they wont fit in Dremel but Dremel seem to be fine in this one so when you wear out collets you shouldn’t have problems finding new ones.
My Dremel has one switch that turns it on and adjusts RPM. This one has a separate power switch which is still taking getting used to for me but if I am honest I think its probably a better arrangement.
The shaft is not nearly as still as my dremel shaft which is a huge plus! The end is a little fatter with some grip ergo type features that I bulk it up compared to the Dremel. You decide if that’s good or bad. I prefer the slimmer grip. Lastly, the way this one interfaces the tool is inferior. Dremel has a square slotted collet sleeve which makes good purchase on the drive shaft. This one relies on friction and I haven’t been able to find a consistent way to attach and use it yet.
All that said, this is a decent deal and if you don’t have one, get one. You will be amazed how often you use it once you have one.
