Proxxon vs. Dremel Rotary Tools?

Hi Guys,

Just prior to my move, my corded Dremel of 20+ years bit the dust... I had purchased a small batteryj powered Dremel for slow speed work. The battery never lasted two minutes... I have heard good things about the Proxxon. Any of you that have one care to provide some feedback? I am preparing my Christmas list for the wife and kids... Thought that it might be a good addition. Thanks in advance.

Did you try changing the brushes in your old dremel?You can get new brush kits almost anywhere the dremels are sold.Around $5 a set I belive.Could be worth a try.bigtim.

Proxxon rotary tools have better bearings in them, so the runout at the collet is much less than your typical Dremel. Translation: a Proxxon wobbles less than a Dremel and is therefore more accurate. And as Tim said, the brushes are easy to change out in a Dremel and will usually fix performance problems, but if your speed controller is burned out then that's a little more expensive to fix, but the Dremel service center in Palm Springs can get you any part for any Dremel.
