Dremel among masters — the name is nominal. Many do not even know the concepts of «engraver», and immediately say: «I use Dremel.» This is already talking about the popularity of Dremel engravers.
It is believed that this tool is amazingly reliable, can work in any conditions, withstands long-term loads … etc., up to the fact that they can fill the Eiffel Tower or expose to the mirror glitter of the Moscow Kremlin’s stars.
Many do not scare even the price of this unit, which exceeds the prices of all other engravers of this class by about 2.5-3 times. Of course, it is necessary to pay for reliability, especially since the dremel is not done in China. He is going to another slightly yellowish country — Mexico. Apparently, part of Mexican cartels conducted a conversion and renewed the production of engravers.
Meanwhile, among my acquaintances, the masters this tool uses approximately so 0. Among familiar daughters (they are all professional jewelers), too, 0. But among the needlewomen and masters-hobbyiers are full. Personally, I know who enjoys and satisfied as an elephant.
Everything is very simple!
Whoever spoke about the amazing reliability and quality of dremel … it is not. And professionals understand this perfectly.
Dremel is a wonderful household engraver, which is suitable for one-time or permanent, but simple, easy tasks. That is, if the engraver you need to make money and will be used constantly — this is not here.
We climb in the inside!
Let’s start with the fact that the case is plastic and poorly removes heat. Understanding this, the manufacturer made ventilation holes right where the machine is kept with fingers. Therefore, the ventilation is like … But in fact it was not delivered.
But in these holes that are located next to the working surface, if not to use a flexible shaft (as a rule, it is purchased separately), all dust and dirt flies, which clogs bearings, enters the engine and settles on electronics.
Threading the windings will be a natural consequence (there is no protection), the backlash of bearings, the electrical shutters.
By the way, from the control electronics to the engine winding, such tonguenute wiring leads that even the service master was surprised how much time it worked.
Further on the list. Bearings at the engravers of the company Dremel are not strengthened, precisely because of this, many masters complain about vibration. Especially if people have sensitive hands. For super-duper accurate works, such an aggregate is not intended — the shaft beats significantly.
The next moment is turning. The engine of the dremel is not very turning, for many tasks, especially in the professional sphere, it is absolutely not enough. At this point you need to pay special attention! In addition, they cannot be adjusted immediately during the work (well, as it were, it is possible, but it is completely uncomfortable, you have to turn off).
Clamping Tsang at a very soft metal engraver. With intensive work, it «licks» mogrenentally. The case is non-warranty, and it costs surprisingly expensive. Not so: expensive!
For thin work, the dremel is inconvenient enough, if the flexible shaft is used, it also appears a large vibration, since it is the bearings … Khm will say.
But, most interesting is that many subscriber engravers have almost exactly the same design, which stand with a suitcase and a gigantic set of equipment are about 3 times cheaper.
In our workshop, two engravers: one professional, which can work without stopping 8 hours (and not even heated, although it is even cheaper than dreamed) and household — caliber. So the caliber is almost a twin brother.
So why is Enraver Dremel — one of the most bought engravers? The answer to this question you see below in the commodity widget:
These are sets of equipment: borici, grinding heads, cutters, cutting and grinding discs, craftsching brushes and so on.
Completely, only the quality of all other sets does not go to any comparison with Dreseliev. Our engraver caliber walked with a large set of equipment in 230 items. The workers were 23 units, conventionally 15 more. Everything else was thrown away. Dremel snap set is used in full. There is nothing curve, oblique, sprinkling right in the process of work.
What is the conclusion?
DREMEL — exclusively a hobby technique to which it is categorically impossible to give high load. Going to using engraver for earnings — take a professional model … which will cost you cheaper (we use — about it in one of the following articles). But the equipment is just a find, I recommend.
