    This is a bit off the mark, but it's Dremel related. I have always objected to to the speed of Dremel tools, especially when working with really small bit. I was in a large box store the other day and stumbled upon this:
    https://us.dremel.com/en_US/products/-/show-product/tools/hs...
    It is quite nice with some feature I really like, such as adjustable torgue setting, and especially a trigger that is activated by simply pushing the tool onto the work. However the real reason I bought it was the slower speed. Much better control for drilling and a nice power screwdriver. It cost around $45 US and recharges via a USB cord from a computer of the supplied transformer.

    I bought two spare drill triggers from Ali Express. Didn't realise they were in the USA 3 month waiting for delivery but the only cost 6 dollars for the two. They can keep them if they want import tax and vat Comes back again and again the old stuff does last longer.

    Sounds good, very handy tools for the small stuff. I still have a tiny French made Precision Petite hobby tool which was given to me 56 yrs ago for my 12th birthday, and it still works perfectly, and is super handy, (pic of one on EBay) mine has a different box. You can buy similar things on Ali Express which are just 550 motors with a chuck screwed on the shaft,- handy for small spaces, or with a mount as a dowel borer or cutoff wheel etc.

    Bought one off EBay yesterday seems it is hardly use with accessories. Don't need the accessories just the Dremel. It looked a really good. Any kinda big job I 'll use the Macalister combi drill.

    An up to date one is probably a better option. Mine are Chinese and work fine, (about 15yrs old) but not fantastic quality. Good thing is, you can buy 2 or 3 for the price of a Dremel, (which is probably made in China these days anyhow)? I bought my son a Stanley hobby tool set, and that's Chinese made. All made to a price.

    Yes the dremel is for hobbyist and it doesn't have much torque nor does it like long running times. I can get spares once I have a more in depth look at it. Surprise its AC straight in to it I am use to it being a knocked down voltage and DC. Also have another spare one on the workstation. Spares money, effort , time doesn't outweigh buying a good one off EBay. Have my eye on one at the moment. Also the 3000 is a reasonable price and it fits the workstation. Just finished fitting a new electronic trigger to my Macalister drill Just keeps happening doesn't it. Seems like the 395 is similar to the 965

    Re,- I think we perhaps expect more from them than their design allows.
    Quite true Dave, - not sure what the Dremel is, (125w?) but mine are similar and only 135w (not much more than a big light bulb) so not really for leaning on, (rely on revs not torque to get things done) If it's your switch that's dud, and if this is the switch, buy a sack full for spares.
    220v 5 speed just not linear. Cheap enough to just buy one to try.

    I have a couple of Dremels but avoid using to sand fibreglass and use the hoover to clean the air vents frequently. Running at high speed is also useful as it helps clear any dust and cools the motor. Erratic slow speed often occurs after continuous use probably due to heat problems and usually clears if left to cool and then run at fast speed for a few mins. Very useful piece of hobby kit but I think we perhaps expect more from them than their design allows.
