Good Starter Kit
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using the bits found in this kit for several weeks now and have found that it's a good place to start when looking for bits to get wood carving. The bits come in a handy storage case which makes it easy to get at what you need. I was a little disappointed to see my bits had fallen out of their holders and were banging together upon arrival however.
The kit includes the Dremel sanding drum and replaceable sanding bands. I find these great for roughing out smaller carvings and getting things to shape. They seem to keep their grit for a decent amount of use and are quite easy to interchange. The sanding discs that are included are a higher grit at 220 and work well with the included mandrel (which you can also use for other things like cutting wheels, etc.) but seem to be more reserved for higher detail work and are quite small. The kit also includes 3 different shaped high speed cutters with seem to remove wood pretty well. There are really nice for grooving and slotting but seemed to struggle a bit for me to be used for shaping.
Lastly, and this threw me a bit, Dremel includes a random drill bit that works best with their work station. I'm not sure why they included this as there is no label as to what size it is and it just seems a little out of place. In my opinion, a few smaller stones for detail carving would be more appropriate.
Overall, I think this is a good place to start if you're new to Dremel and wood carving. You will find that you use most of these bits fairly regularly and you can never have too many mandrels or sanding drums!
