Over at Amazon, this Dremel 3000-series rotary tool kit is on sale, today only, for $45.
This kit comes with 2 attachments, a sanding and grinding guide, and a cutting guide. I’ve never ever used the grinding guide, but then again I’ve never had to spruce up lawnmower blades or things like that.
It also comes with 28 rotary tool accessories for a mix of cutting, grinding, sanding, and polishing capabilities.
Everything is packaged inside of a hard shell case.
They say the “was” price is around $68.
There’s no flex shaft, which can come in handy for higher precision work. Also absent is Dremel’s EZ Lock mandrel and accessories, which are easier to change than the common screw-based mandrel system.
You can always add these items later on after you’ve went through some of the consumables.
This kit looks to be a good starter set, and at $45 it’s far more affordable than the 2 sets I bought in the early to mid 2000’s.
The 3000 series rotary tool is a nice model, and has an EZ Twist collet wrench, where you use the removable nose cone for accessory changes.
If you want something a little more powerful, there’s a 4000 series rotary tool kit for $68.
The deal ends at 3am 11/22/2016, unless supplies run out sooner.
