A lot of the better tools use electronic speed control which monitors RPM and provides power when needed to maintain speed. I have a Makita polisher with it as well as ‘soft start’ and you cannot get it to vary more than a few RPM regardless of how much pressure you apply.. that sucker will twist your arms off first. I think Dremel calls it ‘electronic feedback’ or something, but it’s the same. As for the flex wand.. most of the rotary tools today are modeled around the dremel and many parts are interchangable.. I have a kawasaki, built-tuff (northern tool) and dremel and all the parts fit each other just fine. See if that flexible wand will fit on the dremel.. you may be surprised.

Cheers,
Brad
