Dremel 3981-01, Dremel came out with the first rotary tool long ago, and this professional model, the latest evolutionary leap in the Dremel line, is a great tool for a huge range of projects, from home improvement tasks to hobbies and crafting. Its new soft-start technology, electronic controls, and ergonomic grip make it easier and more comfortable to use than any other rotary tool we’ve tried.
It has a continuously adjustable speed range from 5,000 to 30,000 rpm, with a precise speed gauge, allowing the user to effectively work with materials as soft as balsa wood and as hard as ceramics. And we really like the innovative electronic feedback control on this model, which takes the jerk and torque out of lower-speed applications. Another great feature of this kit (that Dremel’s other MotoTools could benefit from) is the 10-foot long cord, which lets you maneuver without reaching the end of your leash. The kit also comes with a huge assortment of accessories and a handy carrying case. If you’re looking for the smoothest and easiest-to-operate rotary tool on the market, look no further. Dremel’s professional kit is as good as it gets.

Dremel 3981-01 Reviews
I have a Thompson sub-machine gun which uses a 50 round drum magazine. I recently lost the winding key from the drum and ordered a replacement. When the key arrived it did not fit and required custom fitting. This was no problem with my Dremel 3981-01 and Aluminum Oxide bit. I more than paid for my Dremel with this one use versus the cost for a gunsmith to do the work!
If you appreciate quality tools, and want the most out of whatever tool you use, go with the Pro model. The electronic speed control is great for selecting, and more importantly, holding, precise speeds. Dremel 3981-01 has more power than the other Dremels too. Dremel 3981-01’s comfortable to use, has a long cord, and the standard accessories fit.
