Dremel 400 Series XPR Rotary Tool

Awesome Tool + Awesome Price

When friends heard that I purchased a Dremel, the most common response was, “I didn’t know you did crafts.” Well, for the most part, my friends are correct – I do not do crafts. I purchased the Dremel 400 XPR Rotary Tool because of the product’s claims that it is capable of more projects than you can possibly think of! The kit I purchased for $79.95, is the 400-3/41H 400 Series XPR Rotary Tool Kit. This kit comes with the Dremel Rotary Tool, a hard plastic case that holds the tool, accessory cases (with accessories) that snap to the top of the case, and labeled areas in the case for the numerous parts and accessories that are available for this versatile tool.

With my new Dremel in hand, I removed rust from the rain gutter above my deck, polished the calcium deposits from my bathtub faucet, created a better fit for my deadbolt, and cleaned years of use and abuse from my outdoor grill. Each project was completed with ease and a sense of satisfaction that I had wisely invested in a tool that is limited only by my imagination.
