Absolutely useless, not fit for purpose,
I have a dremel, I thought I'd upgrade it for the milwaukee version , the milwaukee top plastic screw became loose every time I turned it on , it vibrated so much the battery fell out !! Very dangerous to use , unless I purchased a fake / faulty one ?

    Best rotary tool ever!!
    M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool is a real work horse. It has more power than most corded tools. You can use your M12 batteries that you use for your other tools. Delivers 5,000-32,000 RPM and it will cut or grind anything you need it to. I really like that it will auto shut off if the tool jams when cutting something and gets in a bind. I use this every week as it seems I find more and more uses for it since it is cordless. Best rotary tool out there.

      Cordless Freedom But Requires A Battery! Tool Only
      After owning a corded Dremel for so long I can't remember it finally bit the dust. I wanted something with that longevity for sure but with the added convenience of cordless. The choices were somewhat large when I did my research however since I own some Milwaukee tools already and own the 2amp battery that this tool needs it was an easy decision. What I like is the fact that this unit has a removable battery whereas some other units have the battery built in so at some point those units are likely tossed to the trash. The Rotary Tool I found has very little vibration unlike how my old Dremel used to vibrate. This tool is smooth, has the nice dial to control speeds, is very well built and runs very long on a battery charge! Very GOOD! Also it takes all my previous Dremel attachments so no loss there!

        Worst Milwaukee Tool I have tried
        This thing is great when it works. I'm on my 3rd warranty replacement now (about 1 year and 6 months since the original), and the new one went for about 3 minutes before it died. I haven't even gone through 2 of the supplied cutting discs that came with the original tool. At least they have a good warranty, but I will be buying a corded Dremel because I'm tired of breaking out the hack saw and files every time I'm working on something and this breaks. It has always been something to do with the power switch or the speed controller. Milwaukee needs to trash this and make something that can withstand the force of being picked up and turned on.

          Can’t go wrong with cordless!!
          This cordless rotary tool replaced a corded rotary tool that is really popular on the market. I am always looking to move away from corded tools so I was very excited to get this tool. It delivers 5000-32000 RPMs which is controlled by a speed dial on the tool. This thing is extremely compact making for easy use in tight spaces and it weights only 1.3 lbs. with a 1/8” collet, finding accessories for this tool is easy. Because they sell so many different tips for this tool, it becomes a very versatile tool for small job applications. Even at high RPMs, you still have excellent control of the tool at all times. I have a huge set of different tips that I bought that gives me the ability to use this tool in so many different ways. Grinding, polishing, sanding, cutting, the list goes on and on. Great tool to shave down the nails on my dog. Included with the tool is the wrench for tightening the collet. It’s a good tool to have on the job site for that spot you are working on where most tools just do not fit. The tool is so small it takes up very little space in your box. Overall well designed tool!!

            Great battery powered rotary tool. 1/8” collet allows for universal bits and wheels. M12 system is excellent. Use this for light sanding and buffing on small jobs and it has performed very well.

            Little powerhouse
            Needed a rotary tool to enlarged some holes for a project and this little Milwaukee handled it with no problem. I initially purchased another brand which is probably the best known name for rotary tools and it died on me 5 minutes in on its first use. I thought it had just overheated but even after letting it sit overnight it still didn’t work. Since I have tons of Milwaukee 12v batteries, I figured it was smart to go with the Milwaukee. So far I’m very happy with it.
