Dremel 4300-5/40 High Performance Rotary Tool Kit Review
Dremel is a leader in the rotary tools market, and for good reason. Did you know that they invented the first high-speed rotary tool back in 1943? Now that you know, you probably think that there is no chance of being even more creative so many years later, but nothing could be further from the truth.
In February of 2016, Dremel released an innovative model onto the market – the Dremel 4300-5/40 High Performance Rotary Tool. This unit brings you a host of excellent features including variable speed, tool-less accessories changing, and great guide and nose attachments. This rotary tool also offers an extensive accessory pack that will make you sing as you work. Read on to find out more.
This Dremel 4300 model packs a powerful 1.8 amp motor capable of achieving maximum speeds of up to 35,000 Revolutions per Minute for consistent performance across all applications. As you probably know, higher speeds do not always mean better results. In fact, just a fraction of the higher speeds is likely to damage certain materials like precious metals or plastics.
Thankfully, this rotary tool has a variable speed dial that allows you to set the appropriate speed for your work piece and task. If unsure of the optimal speeds to use in your application, you can always refer to the useful speed-setting chart in the Dremel manual and test the speeds on scrap material.
This unit features a three-jaw chuck system that allows you to have a tool-less and collet-less accessory changing experience. The chuck system is compatible with virtually any Dremel accessory shank size you want to work with, and it’s also fast and convenient to replace accessories without touching a wrench. You’ll never have to hunt around for a specialty wrench, which is a big time-saver.
