Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rosie Fantastic for wood burning!
I've seen a lot of bad reviews about this, which surprised me because it's been a great tool for my wood burning projects. The ONLY issue I've ever had is that occasionally the bits will twist out, but that's to be expected if I'm twisting the dremel around. A pair of pliers allows me to twist it back in without unplugging and waiting for it to cool down--and I've never had a bit break in the tool. Sadly, after four years of use it's stopped heating up, but they were a good four years--hope to replace it with the same or better :)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sara Broken bit, no longer can use the tool
I've had the Dremel tool for less than a month, purchased it from a small Mom and Pop craft store. After a few times of use, it started to loose its thread, there by making it very hard to swap bits. I then had a bit break off into the tool, and its in so deep I can't get it out. Stinks because I was enjoying the tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HennaTrendz Great bundle for a reasonable price
I needed a woodburning tool for etching on suede boots. This worked like a charm.. I had previously been using a tool that only heated up to 750 degrees and was having a hard time burning into the suede, so I searched online for a higher heat level tool. The dremel burner heats up to 1050 degrees and was just perfect for my project. I used only the soldering tip out of the 5 different tips in the set, but I'm sure the other tips would work quite well too for their intended purpose.
The tool heats up within a couple of minutes. I used mine for non stop 4 hours and had no issues with reduced heating at all. The little resting stand comes in very handy as well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jackie27 Useless instructions.
I just bought this and brought it home. Opened the package to and reviewed the instructions but they dont tell you how to use it. I get that you plug it in, but no information about how long it takes to heat up, how to change the tips, or which tip is which. For a beginner these instructions are useless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handygirl Easy to use
I have never used a woodburning tool or etcher like this before, so I was a little nervous. It was very easy to figure out and use well. I had fun and would definitely recommend it. The only thing that I was a bit stuck on: the 5 tips in the package are not labeled, so I just had to use them all on scrap wood to see what kind of line each made. The instructions were pretty vague and basic, so I just had to go for it and figure it out myself.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BILLJOHNSON Buy a different one.
I got this as a Christmas gift and haven't used it at all until earlier this week. I was wood burning a buck into a piece of wood and I decided to switch out the tips. I thought I got it out successfully, but when I went to put the other tip in I couldn't get it in because the previous tip had broken off inside. The next day I tried glueing the tip in and letting it sit over night. The next morning I tried to unscrew it and it wouldn't come I tired everything and now the threads aren't there anymore. It is completely un usable.

I bought this tool and had a fun afternoon playing around with it on some old scrap wood, learning the feel of it.
When I picked it up today to use it a second time, it worked fine until I tried to swap the bits; the chisel-tip bit jammed in the threads and snapped off inside, so it's impossible to place a new bit in now and the tool is useless.
I've tried unsuccessfully to remove the damaged bit from inside but have no way to pull or twist it out of such a small opening.
Disappointing from the Dremel brand.
