My Thoughts

I have numerous Rotary Tools from Dremel, from full size, to corded compact models to the original cordless Rotary Tool. I loved having a cordless option, but like most early cordless tools,  it was heavy and awkward to use for extended periods of time. This is where the Dremel Micro really shines. It is incredibly small and light weight, offering an exceptionally comfortable feel in use. In some projects, there are times where hours can be spent refining details and design, so having this tool be both cordless and lightweight is a huge deal.

For a lot of projects a Rotary Tool like this is all you will ever need. Unless you are getting into intense carving, this model really offers a great way to tackle small jobs with ease. The portability and ability to get into small corners and areas is another really good benefit of this compact model.

Given the small size, I also was impressed with the overall runtime too, making it a great option for travel and professional users to keep in their tool chest. While you will sacrifice some power with this model over larger ones, it is an easy trade off when you consider the drastic increase in comfort and convenience.

The Dremel Micro has quickly become my go-to Rotary Tool for it’s great combination of compact size, light weight and ample power for a variety of tasks. This tool has definitely impressed me a lot, and it is one I am glad to have!
