Dremel has a new mini rotary tool out soon, the Stylo+, seemingly designed for craft projects and light DIY or hobby-type applications.
They say it’s quiet and compact, for home use.
The Dremel Stylo+ rotary tool is designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, like a pencil, allowing for a controllable and maneuverable grip. It basically looks like a motored flex-shaft tool.
It has a variable speed motor and adjustment dial, for speeds from 5,000 to 22,000 RPM.
The Dremel 2050-15 Stylo+ kit comes with a small assortment of cutting, engraving, sanding, and polishing accessories.
The Stylo+ looks to come with a 1/8″ collet, but I’d bet that Dremel’s other collet sizes are compatible, for users that want to use other accessory sizes. But it doesn’t look like other standard Dremel attachments will work with the tool, such as the detailer’s grip.
I’d say the Stylo+ looks like a corded version of their small Micro cordless rotary tool.
Don’t knock the small size of this tool. I used to own a Dremel Stylus, which was a cordless tool built upon a small hand grip, similar to the newer detailer’s grip. It was small and light duty, but worked nicely for higher precision tasks.
The Dremel Stylo+ starter tool kit is currently priced at $60. It’s unclear as to when it’ll launch, but it’s available for preorder on Amazon.
