Can I back up here? Since I posted this, I looked at all of the micro motors out there. I guess what I’m asking and you know I’m not a “hobbyist” yet I still rely heavily on the Dremel and I do know that a 1/4 or 1/2hp motor has more torque(but less rpm’s) than the Dremel, but I do not know what – amps, volts etc. makes the micro motor go 35,000 yet not be able to have as much torque as the basic Dremel rotary tool – is it the hand piece, the engine, the coil shaft? I just don’t know, which is why I have always declined the Gesswein etc. and am even disappointed in this tool I’m trying, which is almost like the Foredom micro.
Inside the Gesswein, is it the same motor that is in the Dremel? How would a person know?
Sorry guys but I am really interested in a powerful tool with 35,000 and a bit quieter of a motor. I buy 3 Dremels a year at about $300 and I’ve yet to be disappointed, so perhaps I should have never looked out of my shell. LOL.

One time I bought a 14v drill and was really turned off of cordless drills – until someone introduced me to an 18v drill – THEN I KNEW. But is the volts the same with rotary tool motors?
