[Home Depot] Dremel 4000 Rotary Tool Kit - Great Price- Limited Quantities available

NOW ONLY $59! STORES STILL HAVE STOCK!

Just picked up this Dremel rotary tool kit from the Brampton East Home Depot. There is stock in stores, but most likely they are on the upper shelves and not in the retail section.

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.vari ... 04227.html

Great price for this kit. Canadian Tire sells this kit, with 2 LESS attachments for $139.99. Best price I could find as I needed to grab one.

As I said, you're gonna have to look on the upper shelves as this isn't down in their regular stock yet. It's a special buy product, which means quantities are limited.

Good luck all!

Ordered for pickup at Gerarrd Square and got the confirming email soon after telling me to pick up. Then half an hour later order was cancelled. So annoying.

Re-ordered from another store with 9 in stock. We'll see...

If you're a contractor or something like that, and you need the best tool... then you buy Dremel (Milwaukee, Dewalt, Bosch, etc...) but if you just need it for around the house randomly, you can get away with a cheaper brand like the Wen (Ryobi, Ridgid, Kobalt, etc...)

So if you're like me... it's probably not worth spending the $100 on the Dremel when you can get one like this with a flex shaft for under $40:
$36 WEN tool
I've had that one since Nov 2015 and the bits are terrible but the tool itself is great. I just buy Dremel, bits, which do the trick. I've probably used it maybe 20 or so times for various projects and it's never disappointed.

You put Ridgid in with Kobalt and Ryobi? I've had Ridgid for years and burnt through a number of batteries. Their LSA has saved me hundreds on batteries alone :)
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

I think they mean that you probably won't use them, not that they're poor quality.

I agree. I bought this just for wire-brushing. Probably won't use most of the other attachments, but it's still worth it for me.

This is a decent set, I bought it for same price last year. I think the best deal on these were when it was bundled with the flex shaft.

When I purchased this set, and when I happened to notice them again a few weeks ago in passing,, they were in the retail sections. Usually hidden in the cardboard bins across the aisle in front of the tool corral

Are you saying there might still be some around with the flexible shaft for the same price? What location? Do you have a sku?

Thx

Yes Dremel is of high quality. The attachments are mostly useless because you will likely never use the attachments, and even when you do you'll likely find the setup time isn't worth using them. You'd be better off with just a Dremel and a box of the discs/tools you actually need.

I don't think I know enough about wood working to understand your joke :(

Just did some research and the Colt looks pretty cool. Is this considered a good entry-level router? What's a fair and good price for it? Thanks.

I didn't word that properly. I've seen the set the OP mentioned weeks ago, the bundle with the flex shaft was way before that, which I should of bought instead.

As a previous poster alluded to, the extra pieces in this set are useless for the most part, in compared to having the flex shaft instead. I ended up picking the flex shaft to on a trip to the states for $20US

Sorry, just meant the Dremel isnt' good for routing at all, the bits are much more wobbly than a router, has no tip bearing, and no carbide edge.

Colt is a very good mid level pro model, think I paid $120 a few years ago. Keep in mind it's a palm sized compact router so power is limited and can only take 1/4" shaft bits. If you are looking for a full size to handle everything, the maximum from CT with dual base is quite decent and sells for about the same price when on sale.

Thanks for your 2 cents - I'm relatively new to wood working, but I've quickly picked up interest in it as it's a lot easier than I had initially thought. I think something around the $100 mark would be ideal for someone like me who probably just uses it from time to time and does not have any regular projects, so this sounds like a good one to look out for.

Edit: Is this the same thing you have? Only $99 at HD.

Yes that's the single speed model, the one I bought is variable speed. But the single speed is enough unless you have some specific need for slower speed.
