We LOVE our Dremel tools. Seriously, we use them on just about every imaginable project where full-sized sanders, grinders, etc. are just too much. These little rotary tools can actually help turn people on to creating, even if they’ve never done so before. Not that we’re really “creators” but we do use-n-abuse our Dremel tools.
So, we’re excited to see another entry into the Dremel line: the new Dremel Lite ($50). Where larger Dremel tools may be too much, the Dremel Lite should shine in and around the garage, home or workshop. It’s going to be perfect for light-duty repairs, detailed crafts, and just about anything else where light sanding, grinding and cutting is needed.
The Dremel Lite (Part #7760) has four different speed settings, which can be adjusted via a well-placed thumb slider. Speeds range between 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The tool is powered by a 2Ah 4V Lithium-Ion battery that can be charged via USB or its included USB wall adapter. The USB charging feature alone will be a big bonus for many. Battery life will depend on usage and, of course, speed settings, but the battery will fully charge in about 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The Dremel Lite is smaller than its more powerful, corded cousins, coming in at just 7½”L x 1½”W and 1¾”H. The 360° soft material found on other Dremel tools offers comfort and control, as many will hold this smaller Dremel similar to a pencil while doing more detailed work.
Speaking of the work you’ll be cranking out with the Dremel Lite, the tool is—of course—compatible with almost all Dremel accessories and a selection of attachments. That’s great for those who’ve been “collecting” Dremel accessories for years. It’s a bit addicting, really.???? Plus, the “EZ Twist” nose cap means quick and easy accessory changes.
The all-new Dremel Lite 7760 comes with a 10-piece accessories kit, an accessory case, a USB charging cable and wall power adaptor, the user’s manual, a quick start guide, and a 2-year warranty and retails for about $50.
If you’ve never owned a rotary tool before, this new Dremel Lite is a perfect entry-level one to start with.
