Topic tags/keywords: dremel cordless rotary tool 8000 series canes for wounded warriors

I’m interested in getting a cordless rotary tool as I’ve got an older corded version and I find that holding the tool stresses my hand/wrist to the point that I am in more pain than comfort. I am hoping that the 10.8 volt version is light enough, yet still has some power and control.

If anyone has one of the 8000 series please post your 2 cents worth and also state which tool you have. Also, is the motor noise still as loud and annoying as the older models?

AND, I’ve read on some feedback that back in 2004, there were issues of the motor burning out, or not being able to be adjusted due to melt down of sorts. Does anyone have any experience with this?

ALSO, if you have a moment, please VOTE for my project: Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors


Many thanks in advance for your comments and votes!

My oldest daughter uses the cordless Dremel in her veterinary practice and really likes it so she gave me one for Christmas.Im not in the shop so not sure of the model number but it is the Cadillac model according to my daughter.My take on it: it works fine,has adequate power,but is heavier than my corded tool and the battery doesnt seem to hold a charge for very long.Truthfully,I like my corded one better.Dont tell my daughter!Mine has the mini-router attachment which is a cool feature but the mini router bits are way overpriced for high speed steel rather than carbide but I havent used them enough to comment on their longevity.Hope this helped.PM me if you need to know what model I have.

I’ve had an 8000-03 kit for about a year. It’s a very nice tool, but it is pretty heavy, and not as balanced as the corded models. It seems to have plenty of power, and the battery lasts a long time for me.

Have your say...
