The Dremel 100 is good at doing one thing really well – operating at a constant speed of 35,000 RPM.
As we mention in this Dremel 100 Series Review, that is where the Dremel 100 differs to the Dremel 200 – the Dremel 200 can operate at both a low speed and the high speed (it is a two speed tool).
The Dremel 100 is best for users that want a small electric Dremel for tasks like routing, cutting, drilling and sanding, shaping, hollowing, grooving, slotting, inlaying and making tapered holes.
