I love my Wen! This kit came with great accessories and I'm using it to carve celtic knots into the front of an old cabinet. I like the comfort and ease of using this tool. Would definitely recommend it.

Great rotary tool for the price. Cnc broke right before Christmas and was not able to finish one project so purchased this in a pinch. First time ever using a rotary tool let alone carving. It wasn't too bad.

Cheap but quality
I used this tool to cut out parts of my car's grill and it worked beautifully. The cutting discs sliced through the plastic like butter with only a few breaks (all my fault). The sanding bits smoothed down the edges perfectly. It had plenty of power for the job. If it eventually breaks, for this price I'll just throw it in the gutter and go buy another.

The WEN variable speed rotary tool is a great product to have around the garage. It can be used for a variety of projects. The collet sizes are standard allowing one to use accessories from a number of manufacturers if needed. The product includes the following:
Collets (1/8”, 3/32”, 1/16”)
Twelve Sanding Bands
Four Felt Polishing Wheels
Forty Sanding Discs
Thirty-Six Cutting Wheels
Small Screw Mandrel
Two Wire Brushes
Wood Polishing Bit
Seven Diamond Bits
Five Grinding Bits
Three Drill bits
Two Sanding Drum Mandrels
High Speed Cutter
Drywall Cutting Bit
Drill Guide Collar
LED Light Collar
L Shaped Tool (for tightening bits into flex shaft)
I found the spindle lock button did not have as much of a positive engagement as a competing product. I did however prefer the variable speed dial on the WEN compared to the slide switch of a competitor. The Power switch is near the rear of the unit and I found that inconvenient to use based on how I held the tool during use. That made it difficult to safely turn off the tool in certain circumstances.
The flex shaft is a great addition as it allows more precision grinding, etc. The instructions for connecting the flex shaft confused me as I was looking at the pictures and one of them showed the collet nut removed. It turns out it was removed to demonstrate the position of a part being inserted but I did not understand that at first and the flex shaft did not rotate as a result. Once I corrected my error, the flex shaft worked great and I was able to use it with the high speed cutting bit to carve letters in wood.
The case is made of a durable material and features a pocket for the continer of bits.

The Variable Speed Rotary Tool is quite a handy tool to have for small DIY projects. I used the tool with the flex shaft and various bits and accessories to carve out a sign to our beach. This was the first time I had used a tool like this and will definitely require some practice for various projects. Overall, I am pleased with the tool and it did meet my expectations.

Everything performed flawlessly except the flex shaft. I could not get it to work, not even once.

Tool has several defects from the get-go
Nice little tool, but I don't think the shaft is straight (i.e. the business end rotates in a cone, not a straight line: makes accurate work difficult and can only get worse with time. The collet loosens frequently, possibly because of this vibration. And the motor heats up rapidly, so that the tool gets uncomfortably warm to hold

This is my fourth WEN tool (from their line) and I am really liking the quality and reasonable prices. This is an excellent tool with all of the accessories. I am personally buying up different WEN tools for my collection, because these prices won't last long (my opinion).

The metal cutting discs are worthless. They break very easily. The main unit seems solid and compares nicely to a Dremel.
