Believe it or not, the rotary tool was developed back in 1932. Sure it has changed a lot over the years but the one thing that hasn't changed, it's a very useful and practical tool. Back in 1993 Bosch bought the company and they have been running it ever since. Since the purchase, Dremel has expanded its line of tools, which will be covering the Dremel Go screwdriver. But for now, let's talk about the Dremel Lite Rotary Tool.

Dremel Lite Rotary Tool – Impressions
So what can I say about Dremel? They are the inventor and it's the leader of the pack. The Lite is a great tool for the beginner and anyone looking to sand wood, engrave metal, cut plastic and everything in between. The tool is lightweight which makes it easy to handle for fine detail work. The speed selector is convenient and easy to change with your thumb on the fly.
I think the price of $50 is a great value for a couple of reasons. First, you can do so much with this tool. Second, it's a Dremel which means it will last. I don't know when I bought my first Dremel, but it still works and I still use it. Sure it is now outdated since it has a cord but never the less, it has been there when I needed it.
