Every tool in this kit worked great.
This kit is the basic Dremel 100 tool and the sharpening kit A679-02.
The sharpening kit includes a chainsaw sharpener, blade sharpener with two types of guides, and a cut off wheel. Also includes a handy reference chart of all the available grinding tips.
Once you get the hang of it you can sharpen a tool faster than it takes to read this review LOL!
I used every tool in this kit and they worked as advertised. Bottom line, this is a good set for anyone who has a variety of tools to sharpen or is a homeowner who may have use for a Dremel tool.
Besides my mower I have two loppers and two bypass shears in various stages of dullness and two electric chainsaws / trimmers. I started by trying it on one pair of bypass shears and it went so quickly I sharpened everything. Took about two hours including reading the instructions. Now I am confident I can pull this out and sharpen a tool as needed in a just a few minutes.
Besides this kit you just need a vice and a file to hone the edges if needed. Honing is just as important and is even faster than sharpening so learn to do it.
I was especially surprised it worked so well on my 18 inch mower blade. In fact I let my 13 year old son sharpen the mower blade because mowing is his job. He did an awesome job. The guides worked well to keep the stone at the correct angle. It still takes a good eye to keep the tool exact but the guides really help if you are a beginner. I was skeptical it wouldn’t do a good job because the size of the stone is pretty small. No worries. After sharpening all the tools the stone still looks perfect.
I am very happy it worked on my loppers and bypass snippers. They are expensive to purchase and need sharpening often I learned. Since I let the blades get so dull I took them all apart and thoroughly cleaned them first. They are operating better than new with a sharper than factory edge. For the anvil loppers I took the guide off and just eyeballed it running the stone along the double beveled blade. Worked great. I didn’t have to take anything apart.
The chainsaw sharpening tool works great. Has three diameter stones for various size chains. In the past I just bought a new chain since it was cheaper than paying to have it sharpened. With this tool It takes only 30 seconds to swap from the standard blade sharpener to the chainsaw sharpening tool. It takes a long time to sharpen a 16 inch saw blade but no longer than going to the store to buy a new one. At $20 per blade or more it can add up quick.
The holes for the chainsaw guide were too large for the screws that came with the kit. I had larger screws on hand that worked fine. Hopefully it was an anomaly.
It also comes with a cut off disk. They don’t last long but it is a good way to see how well it works if you have never used them. A lot easier than using a hand saw!
I am really pleased with this Dremel rotary tool, It comes complete with 10 accessories. 4 different grinding stones, 2 cutting wheels, 1 collet, 1 wrench, a chain saw sharpening adapter, a lawn mower blade sharpening adapter and a garden tool sharpening adapter. These adapters keep the grinding stones at the proper angle to help you get the best results. Comes with complete instructions. I have always trusted Dremel.
If you're looking for a way to sharpen your lawn and garden tools, then look no further. The Dremel brand ensures that you're receiving a reliable, quality product, even though this is from the most basic 100 series line.
I like that the tool is compact and that the accessories provided allow for sharpening of lawn mower blades, chainsaws, and regular gardening shears. The instructions included are not specific to this product, but rather to the whole Dremel line. If you're not familiar with the product line, it will take some time to familiarize yourself with what is included. Included with this unit are accessories numbered 426 (2), 932, 453, 454, 455 and 402.
Aside from the cutting wheels (426), most of the other grinding bits are specific to the sharpening of lawn care tools. If you're hoping for a mix of more versatile bits, this isn't the best product in the Dremel line for you.
The instructions for sharpening lawn mower blades are thorough and easy to follow. Be sure to follow the instructions on your specific mower for removing and reinstalling the blade. It can take a few tries to balance the blade after sharpening, but it's a crucial step in the process.
This product is best for the serious lawn care enthusiast or the thrifty individual trying to get the most life out of their lawn and garden tools.

This review is for the Dremel 100 LG Series 0.9 Amp Single Speed Corded Lawn and Garden Rotary Tool Kit with 10 Accessories.
I’ve used other Dremel tools in the past, and have a multi-speed model in my basement workshop. However, when I was given a chance to check out the “Lawn and Garden” model I decided to give it a try out and see what the differences were.
The Dremel 100 is a single speed unit (35,000 RPM) which makes it a poor candidate for buffing, polishing, or using with wire wheel attachments. Such jobs are better done at speeds at or under 15,000 RPM.
The 100 is designed for grinding, sharpening, and cutting – the sort of jobs you might encounter when working outdoors or in the garage.
In the manual that comes with the model 100 Dremel explains the differences between the various models and the intended use of each tool. If you’re looking for a ‘does it all’ rotary tool one of the other Dremel models might fit your requirements better than the 100.
For my purposes, the 100 is spot on. With the proper attachments (and Dremel offers a LOT of attachments!) this thing does yeoman’s work in sharpening garden tools. The lawn mower blade I generally sharpen on a bench grinder – but if you don’t have a bench grinder handy, the Dremel will do the job. It even comes with a specialized accessory for lawn mower blade sharpening. (It comes with a chain saw sharpening accessory as well, but I don’t own a chain saw so I can’t comment on how well that works).
I have an electric lawn edger, and the blade on that was a piece of cake for the Dremel 100. I had hit the sidewalk a few times and put some burrs into the blade and the Dremel took them out in little time.
There was no undue vibration from the Dremel (the user manual suggests a 5-minute run-in time to seat the brushes. The brushes are, handily, user replaceable; no need to return the Dremel for such a minor service).
Words of caution – wear eye protection (I have a full face shield that I wear when running the Dremel). 35,000 RPM can cause even well maintained accessories to fail and fall apart. Also the tool has a high speed whine to it; while not overly loud if you’re going to be using the thing for more than a couple of minutes I’d recommend hearing protection.
Also, don’t cover the air intakes on the Dremel – it will heat up very quickly indeed if you block airflow.
Check the balance of any power tool blade you sharpen; an out of balance lawn mower blade can ruin your day when it spins up to full power when installed back on the mower.
Read the manual that comes with the model 100, even if you have prior Dremel experience; it covers the limitations of a constant speed 35,000 RPM tool very well.
The fit and finish of the Dremel are excellent, and the tool is well balanced in my hand. This is a corded model (6 foot cord) but the cord doesn’t seem to get it my way or throw the balance of the tool off. It’s a two-prong cord, so no need for a three wire grounded extension cord. Of course, used outside it should be used with a ground fault interrupter type of socket to avoid possible shocks when used in wet grass.
Dremel rotary tools are, to me, “must have” tools for the toolbox. I don’t use the Dremel often, but when I need to cut off a bolt in tight quarters, remove a spot of rust, sharpen a garden tool blade, or fit a lock into a door frame, a Dremel is the “go to” tool.
The model 100 is a cost-effective tool for working on the garden tools and other outside jobs. While my multi-speed model will remain in the basement workshop, the Dremel 100 has earned a spot in my garage toolbox. It’s really nice to have for touching up shovel blades or that confounded edger blade. There are more expensive Dremels available (both corded and cordless) but the simplicity and market price of the 100-LG just seems to go with garden and outdoor work. A cordless model might be quicker to grab and use (especially if you have to run an extension cord!) but the corded model means I can leave it in the garage toolbox without worrying about how a battery would be affected by the ambient temperature, or when I last charged the battery.
The Dremel 100-LG comes with a two-year warranty from Dremel and a 90 return policy from Home Depot.
