Product Overview

The Genesis GLHT72-65 7.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Rotary Tool has 1001 household, hobby and project uses: cut, saw, sand, grind, drill, engrave, polish, buff, sharpen, clean and more. The lithium-ion battery gives you more power and twice the run time of a nickel cadmium (Ni-Cad) battery. And can be stored for over a year without losing its charge. Charge it any time you want, as much as you want. It won't develop a "memory" like a Ni-Cad. Variable speed allows you to match the tool to the type of bit you are using and the material you are cutting. We include 65 accessories, but any standard rotary tool accessory will fit into your Genesis Rotary Tool. A precision fingertip grip and LED work light allow you to do very fine work easily, like engraving. The convenient charging station also serves as a tool stand and accessory storage tray. The Accessory Set Includes 4 mandrels, 2 bands (3/32 in. and 1/16 in.), three 1/2 in. sanding wheels, three 1/4 in. sanding wheels, two 1/2 in. polishing wheels, two 1/4 in. polishing wheels, 1 polishing paste, 1 nylon cup brush, 1 nylon wheel brush, 2 silicon carbide grinding stones (25/32 in. and 7/16 in.), one 3/8 in. aluminum oxide grinding stone, 3 drill bits (1/8 in., 3/32 in., 1/16 in.), six 1/8 in. diamond grinding points and thirty four 15/16 in. x 1/32 in. cut-off wheels.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use this tool as a stylus to engrave in hard wood? What accessory would you need to use?

Asked by: Bradb
Hello Bradb, You can use the tool for engraving. Within the 65pc accessories should be and engraving bit and a cutting bit. Both of these will work for engraving hardwood. I hope this helps. Cheers, Chris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genesis 7.2 V lithium ion hobby tool It's convenient because it's battery-operated it's perfect for small carving projects. I especially like the pistol grip feature. I would also like to add the excellent service provided by Amber in the Troutdale Oregon store #4014

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase, Highly Recommended! I bought this product to grind my dogs nails down. I previously had purchased a Dremel Stylus 6 years ago which was a pistol grip tool just like this one, however it would not hold a charge anymore and I needed a new one. When I went to purchase another Dremel Stylus, I found that it had been discontinued and I was highly disappointed because the specific pistol grip style worked perfectly for my needs. In my search for a replacement I stumbled across this grinding tool. I am extactic to report that it is just as good at a fraction of the cost and I highly recommend it. It is lithium charged and I can take it outside to use without the hastle of a cord. It works great and I am very pleased with the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best units on the market! Read why! This unit is better than the Dremel tool that costs up to 3 times as much! The battery life is WAY better and doesn't need an expensive replacement after 50 to 100 hours of using it. No memory effect either so you can put it back on the charger even if you only use it for 2 mins! Its very powerful and will tackle almost anything from drilling holes to sanding, cutting, and even buffing! This unit works with all dremel bits so any bit you can put in a Dremel you can use in this! It has a very bright white LED light so you can use it in dark areas and a nice selection of bits including cutoff wheels and sanding wheels (in the kit we bought, not sure if every kit has a huge selection of bits). I would give this unit 6 stars if there were such a thing! I have owned 2 units that look almost identical to this one made by dremel and BOTH crapped out in less than 1 year! This is my 2nd unit from this brand as I keep one at the house and one at the office since they come in handy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent dremel replacement Easy to use right out of the box, had a small charge to the battery, not the dremel stylus that I was looking for, but a decent replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Really Well and Fits the Hand Perfectly I wanted a dremel-type tool but never liked the feel of the standard elongated tool. This Genesis Hobby Tool fits in the palm of the hand like a pistol and naturally feels better and more comfortable. The unit comes with a nice LED light, many useful accessories and the variable speed is spot-on and make the tool very versatile. I have used it for many household projects and crafts and have not been disappointed. PLUS - It has a full Two-Year Warranty if anything does arise. I give this one Five Stars all the way!
