Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SparkieatPages Best Little Tool in the World
I use this drill for my jewelry business. The variable speed is great. I can pin point the exact speed for drilling glass or stones. Plus it's easy to assemble and change out the drill bits. I bought the drill press which makes it easy to drill exactly where I want. And I was able to get an extended warranty at very little extra cost. I'm good to go for years to come.

I was able to assemble the drill in less than 20 minutes. Easy to use and several adjustments that can be made to finer tune the drilling. The only compliant I have with it so far is I use the tool to shape holes out a plastic box and I need to be able to move the dremel down and lock it into place once I have it in the right spot. I had to rearrange some parts to get it to stay where I want it. Overall it is a good affordable starter tool for minor drilling and dremel work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Dremel should be ashamed
This is pure junk. It is mostly plastic with very poor mechanical tolerances. It won't even adjust so the drill bit is vertical. It adjusts to about 87 degrees so don't plan on round or accurately placed holes. This item degrades Dremel's reputation in my book and I'll think twice before buying another Dremel product. The only reason that I rated this at 1 star is because I couldn't give it zero stars. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Butch Had to return immediatley, won't drill perpendicular holes, cheap plastic throughout
As the attached photos attempt to show, the swivel head wouldn't go all the way to zero (straight), so could never drill a perpendicular hole. This should be one of the main functions of the workstation. Also there is cheap plastic throughout, which I think won't last long. I have included a photo to show the warpage of the plastic head at the swivel locations. I also question the design of the vertical adjustment lock, as it just drives the end of a screw into the chrome column, which is just going to chew up the column with time. This and other design "features": are very poor. I returned ours after one hour of inspection. I thought Dremel was a respected name and qualtiy manufacturer, but after this I will think twice about buying any more dremel products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Igglepud Awesome!
I just used it as a router table. Took a lot longer than with the actual router table, but will suffice until that gets here. This thing can do a LOT.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mreilly1109 Versatile - Allows for creative freedom
I build and modify cigar box hobby guitars. I needed the ability to cut straight holes and because I currently own a Dremel 4200 rotary tool, I felt that the drill press attachment would suffice for my needs. Even though the plunge depth and hole radius are limited, this little guy has been fantastic!
One feature I absolutely love, is the ability to put the rotary tool at an angle. This was not a feature that I thought I would ever need, but has now become invaluable. So here was my dilemma, and how I used this tool to solve it. Part of creating these guitars requires shaving down pieces of wood for necks so that I could have part of it above the body to act as the fingerboard for the guitar/diddley bow (I know this is a lot of mumbo jumbo, but other guitar builders might understand this). Now since I don't have a lot of extra money, I try to make use of the tools I currently own rather than buy new ones. I have a 543 Cutting/Shaping Wheel and I have been using this attachment regularly for this task, but what I lacked was precision when using it by hand. What I discovered is that I was able to angle the rotary tool with this bit in place, then set the tool at my desired depth and now I have a makeshift planer! Once complete I replace the shaping wheel with a sand paper bit and then smooth out the product!
The only negative I have with the product is the lack of ease to use the easy change feature of the 4200. This could be user error, but I am unable to change out the bits while the tool is in the drill press. And since that is one of my favorite features of the tool, it is a bit of a drag to have to pull the entire tool out to change out the attachment and ten re-install.
Additionally, like most modern dremel tools, most of the pieces are plastic, so the accuracy and tightness isn't as great as a metal (more expensive) equivalent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by metalmaniac Works for us
We purchased 2 of these primarily to use with our Dremel 4000 as a flex shaft. I would not purchase for use as a drill press as there is a lot of play when the Dremel is inserted into the holder. For our main purpose, it works just fine, although I use mine in my metalshop and had to move it off my primary table because when I hammer the metal the top (that holds the Dremel) falls down.
