Dremel recently came out with their first-ever 18V/20V Max cordless power tool, a cordless Ultra-Saw.
Over at LinkedIn, Dremel’s new Global Brand President said something that had me keeping an active eye out for more new developments. They said:
10 years from now…you are going to want to have Dremel on your resume…
We are building a truly unique digital future for a fun, differentiated and creative hard-lines brand. We are looking for talented folks that are willing to roll-up their sleeves and help lead one of our coolest projects and biggest bets.
So, I’ve been searching and… there’s a new… universal cleaning kit with drill adapter.
Before you wrinkle your face at the idea, consider that Dremel came out with a cordless cleaning and scrubbing tool, the Versa, 3 years ago. You can get the cordless Versa for $40 via Amazon at the time of this posting.
3 years of Dremel Versa sales have paved the way for this new set of Dremel cordless drill-compatible cleaning accessories.
While this couldn’t possibly be what Dremel is talking about when they hint about “one of their coolest projects and biggest bets,” this is still an interesting product release.
The cleaning brushes and scrubbing pads are compatible with the Dremel Versa tool. The difference here is that you get a 1/4″ hex shank drill (and cordless screwdriver) adapter, plus an assortment of Versa accessories..
This allows you to use ALL Versa-compatible accessories with a cordless drill/driver.
It’s unclear as to whether the Dremel Versa drill adapters will be available separately.
To start off, you get a detail brush, PC370-2, for cleaning in tight spaces, and also a 4″ extender.
The Dremel PC364-1 is a bristle brush for general cleaning tasks.
The kit comes with a hook and loop backing pad, and PC367-3 kitchen scour pads.
Lastly, you get a kitchen brush, PC372-1, for cleaning tall glasses, tumblers, and maybe even bottles.

This is by no means a new innovation – the idea of cordless drill-powered cleaning brushes and scrubbing pads has been around for a while.
But, it’s interesting.
If the 1/4″ hex to M10 adapter were available separately, you’d be able to put together your own cleaning kit with Dremel Versa-compatible accessories. But then again, why would Dremel sell just the adapter when they can get you to buy a starter kit for $25?
All of the accessories here seem useful, although I’d be more personally interested there was a less expensive set that left out the bottle brush.
Now… any thoughts as to what Dremel’s coolest and biggest bet project might be? Could it be the Dremel-branded CNC router or milling machine we’ve been waiting for?
