Best Dremel Tool Kit/Set: Buyer’s Guide & FAQ

What Is A Dremel Tool Set/Kit?

A Dremel Tool Set/Kit, is a kit that includes:

A Dremel rotary tool

Dremel accessories/bits

Sometimes Dremel attachments

Extras like Mandrels for special types of bits like Dremel EZ bits

Sometimes a carrying case for the tool, or accessories case for the bits/accessories

 

What Is A Dremel Tool Kit Used For?

A Dremel tool kit is useful for both experienced users, and beginners, looking to undertake a range of finishing activities.

Not only do you get the tool, but you get a range of accessories and attachments to perform a range of tasks with including but not limited to (and depending on what bits and attachments you get):

Cutting & Routing

Engraving/Carving

Sanding

Grinding/Sharpening

Shaping

Cleaning/Polishing

Drilling

 

One of the benefits of a Dremel tool kit/set is that it can save you the time of purchasing bits and attachments individually, which can also be expensive.

On the other hand, if you don’t need all the bits/attachments in the set, or if you can find compatible non-Dremel brand accessories, a large set might not be ideal for you.

We outline and breakdown the non-Dremel and Dremel brand accessories, and accessories kits in:

Dremel Accessory Kits
