Customer Questions & Answers

Are Dremel attachments interchangeable with the Milwaukee rotary tool?

Asked by: MHWoodworker
No. The Dremel cutting wheel has a smaller hole. You can drill it out though.

Is this good for cutting the excess off of bolts?

Asked by: DIYLEN
It should be, it works like any other rotary tool and they do include those cutting wheels you see on the picture. I do recommend getting the larger batteries instead of the smaller ones like the included battery, this will also let you stand the tool which is nice. The only place the large batteries won't be good is if you have to reach into a very small place.

Can I use this to file dogs nails? Looking for one that fits a few needs. Larger dogs. Thanks!

Asked by: Mandy
I just used it tonight to file my medium (30 pound) dog's nails. It works great. More torque than my 7.2v Dremel. The trick to grinding dogs nails is to use a sanding drum bit and keep it moving so the heat doesn't build. Don't try to get each nail all at once... touch it with the bit for a half second and move to the next nail then move back. etc. Grinding the nails is preferable to using those horrible snippers. much safer and less likely to cut the quick. Introduce it gradually with treats. Once the dog gets used to the vibration they don't care.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 155.

I really liked this tool, used it for a couple of years for occasional use. It was never "great" but overall very handy being cordless. The power was good but left a bit to be desired. I've never done anything crazy with it. Just recently I was cutting some metal and I noticed it seemed really weak and next thing I knew it stopped working. Now when I turn it on the lowest speed, it just hangs and when I nudge the shaft it gets going but has no real power. Any tool has the ability to fail regardless of build quality, etc. but this is about the only power tool I own that has failed, out of a lot of em.

After burning up a couple of cheesy Dremels in only 9 months I decided to try these. I'm on my second one and am getting about 3 years out of each one. FAR better than Dremel. The only negatives are that it is magnetic and attracts the shavings which are sure to give you tiny little slivers. I wear rubber gloves but a few still get through. The other thing is that the collar around the shaft loosens up frequently. Not a big deal, but I thought I would mention it. If they could somehow de-magnatize it, then it would be a 5 star product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Dremel Upgrade Picking the kit apart, the tool, battery, charger, cutoff wheels, and case are perfect. The collet and cutoff mandrel are pretty much junk. People describe numerous reasons why the tool vibrates so much (which it does), but it is all in the collet and mandrel. I through them out and bought Dremel replacements, and the problem went away. Anyway, the tool has 10x the power of my 3 corded Dremels combined. It is a lot bigger than them though, but this tool is meant to bridge the gap between Dremels and die grinders. It is a great tool to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the closest rotary tool to the proprietary name others are most familiar with. Very good... This is the closest rotary tool to the proprietary name others are most familiar with. Very good torque and speed. This is fully compatible with other brands of mandrels and bits. The variable speed is very nice as you are not limited to Hi and Low speeds only. The kit is easily transportable and has room for additional accessories. Comfortable to handle and powerful enough for tasks, this is a winner. It is not designed to replace larger tools for intense work or all day operation. You will have to change the battery frequently if you are trying to use this item as a sander for larger projects. Battery life is good on the supplied battery and the tool becomes a little bit awkward with the higher capacity batteries. Overall, great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from higher speeds there was vibrations and mandrel got loose along... higher speeds there was vibrations and mandrel got loose along with plastic cover that is screwred on for other accessories(just below collet). had hand tightened; so I used wrench and still loosens and started to get hot at output shaft(not motor),so maybe bearing was getting hot. I was using large cutoff wheel supplied and was alittle chewed up; so probably out of balance. smaller grinding wheels worked good. Possible operator error with the problems.

It's a decent rotary tool, not as powerful as the corded Dremel 4000 though. I bought it because the Dremel has it's own problems, like overheating. Biggest negative is that the Milwaukee battery only last about 1/2 hour or 45 minutes at most. Recharge takes about an hour, so it can be frustrating when working on a project to get partly done then have to wait for the battery to recharge. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rotary tool I was with high spectations, however I used it for cutting a brass fitting with a cutting wheel for the tool, it started heating up and smelling burnt, the tool was unable to shut off it kept running even after I turned the switch off. Had to remove the batterie to shutoff, if you tried inserting the battery it would start running even after 30 min.

I bought this because my Dremel died after only a few years and I have a few of these power tools with the M12 battery already. I love the versatility of taking this anywhere and not having to worry about plugging it in somewhere and it still has the torque and RPM's to do the job around the house and in the garage.
