Dremel is a multinational company that manufactures power tools used for home improvement projects and hobby applications. It’s known primarily for its rotary tools (such as its 3000, 4000, and 8200 series), which is similar to the pneumatic die grinders that are used for metalworking. The line of Dremel tools then expanded into other products, including the following:
  • Butane tools.
  • Benchtop and hand-held saws.
  • Oscillating tools.

The first Dremel tool was developed by Albert J. Dremel, who was an Austrian immigrant. He started the Dremel Company in 1932. And in 1993, Robert Bosch purchased the company. Now, it's a division of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. The idea behind the first Dremel tool was to rotate a bit at a high speed while it was held in place inside a collet, with variable-speed models having a range between 3,000 and 37,000 RPM. Dremel tools rely on high speed instead of the high torque that’s common on a standard power drill. If you use the right bit (also called a “burr”), you can perform any the following actions:
  • Drilling.
  • Grinding.
  • Sharpening.
  • Cutting.
  • Cleaning.
  • Polishing.
  • Sanding.
  • Routing.
  • Carving.
  • Engraving.
While you can find both battery-powered and corded tools from this company, earlier cordless models were marketed as the Dremel Freewheeler. You can also find other options, which include both planer and saber saw attachments that will allow the tool to perform in a way that similar to a small reciprocating saw. Some of the other Dremel rotary tools include but may not be limited to:
  • Cordless pumpkin carving tool.
  • Cordless pet nail grooming tool.
  • Cordless golf cleaning tool.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most powerful tool made by Dremel?

Both the Dremel 4000 and 4300 corded rotary tools will have variable speeds between 5,000 and 35,000 RPM. Both of them also have a powerful motor, as well as a similar ergonomic design. But aside from that, they're distinctly different tools. While the Dremel 4000 will give you more options with a variety of attachments, the 4300 model is more powerful with a 1.8-amp variable-speed motor that can rotate the bit at speeds of up to 35,000 RPM.

Is Dremel owned by Bosch?

Dremel was started by an Austrian immigrant in 1932, which was when the first die grinder tools were developed. It was later purchased by Robert Bosch in 1993 and is now a part of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation based in Mount Prospect, Illinois.

What is the most versatile tool made by Dremel?

The Dremel 4300 has an incredible amount of versatility because it’s not only more powerful than the 4000 but is also compatible with every single attachment and accessory built for Dremel tools. It’s a fast, smart, and reliable tool that will maximize your efficiency. It even has a pivot light that you can adjust for the best line of sight. This will allow you to get good illumination even in spaces that are hardest to reach.
