Editor's Notes

February 18, 2019:

Nearly every dedicated craftsman has used a rotary tool, and just like Xerox and Kleenex, the most popular brand name is now synonymous with the entire category, in this case being Dremel. So it's little surprise that Dremel, themselves, make some of the best, and the 8220 is nearly indistinguishable from AC-powered models. The MiniMite and Micro are also fantastic options for those who are may be a bit more focused on art than construction, but they both still serve a huge variety of purposes. The Herzo is focused towards small jobs, and in particular artistry — it even comes with a stencil for making tiny letters and shapes. The Milwaukee is a good alternative to the more well-known brands, and it has plenty of power in its own right. The Bosch models are awfully expensive for the category, and they don't even come with batteries or charging stations, but they are truly professional-grade implements, which should last for quite a long time.
