Dremel VersaTip 1550
Been very happy with several Dremel products I own but not this one! The second time using this multi tool the tip broke off inside the shaft making it totally useless. Very disappointed this Dremel product could not withstand woodburning wooden spoons. I have to say I really like the short shaft for easier control. Please Dremel make this right & restore my faith in your products

We are very sorry the tip broke off in the tool. We will contact you directly to provide some assistance.
    Good tool
    I have 2 of them and one I have had over 20 years and probably has 2000 hours of woodburning. I bought the second because I though the first was dying as it’s so old but both do a phenomenal job

      Cuts thin acrylic plastic
      I needed something that can cut thin (1/16") acrylic plastic. The web indicated I could use a hot knife and this one did the trick! Although nothing here or anywhere else seems to indicate how to get more blades, the tool seems to just use standard X-acto knife blades. Bad news: this tool is NOT compatible with the Dremel 202 VersaTip Cutting kjnife (even though Dremel claims the knife is "Compatible with Dremel VersaTip tools".

        Dremel Shines Again!
        I am an 82 year old female who has depended on "small, around the house Dremel tools" for some 40 years. I have recently purchased the VersaTip for a gardening/craft project to fill some of my extra "at-home" time while we all wait out the corona virus. Dremel gives me reliable service in a topsy-turvy time.

          tip broke off when attempting to remove
          As others have pointed out - tip replacement can easily render the tool worthless.

            No listing on package of wattage
            I bought this to repair a brass came antiques lamp. Neither the package nor the instruction say what the wattage is or high the heat goes. Dumb to have to go on the website to find that. And the instructions on using and identifying the tips are no more helpful than they were when jackie27 complained 5 years ago. I had high hopes for the tool, but since the wattage is only 30, I will be returning it.

              Inadequate instructions
              Brand new to woodburning so would be nice to have instructions that explain how to change tips. Insert explained what the 5 different tips do, however with the exception of the hot knife tip one has no idea which tip is which.

                  Razor blade tip is garbage
                  The blade tip wont stay in as the fitting is too loose, no temperature control.

                  We agree that the blade tip should get tight and we're sorry you're having trouble getting that to happen. We will have someone contact you directly to assist.
                    Tip broke off
                    I bought this back in August and finally got around to using it. The hot knife worked perfectly and cut through what I needed with ease. Unfortunately the tip broke the next day when my dad tried to use it. I was lucky that the threads didn't get stuck inside, but now I am without the hot knife which was the whole reason why I bought this in the first place.
