DREMEL INTRODUCES THE STYLUS™

Latest Dremel Rotary Technology Blends Precision and Accuracy at Your Finger Tips

MT. PROSPECT, Ill., February 13, 2006 —The new Dremel Stylus ™ rotary tool offers unparalleled style and technology. Poised for nearly any application – grinding, polishing, sanding or buffing – the Stylus brings precision rotary tool technology to your fingertips. Its innovative contour-grip design, soft-grip surface and Lithium-ion technology are designed to make the tool an extension of your hand, helping home repair, crafting and woodworking projects come alive.

“The Dremel Stylus is a tool that will allow the creativity to flow from the user, right into the project itself,” said Andrea Ash, Dremel director of marketing communications. “We know how important it is to have a tool in the house that makes crafts, hobbies and every day projects approachable and fun – and the new Stylus was created to fit your hand and your lifestyle.”

The Stylus comes with its own docking station for charging and accessory storage. From the kitchen countertop to the garage workbench, the Dremel Stylus will fit anywhere in the home, making this handy tool readily available for everyday projects. The Stylus also features an integrated, Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery; the same battery technology as notebook computers and cell phones. Because it holds a charge for up to two years in storage, it will always be charged and ready for the projects you need to tackle. The Li-ion battery technology will hold its charge six times longer than similar voltage nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries, and is smaller and lighter than the Ni-Cd, keeping the Stylus lightweight and compact, making it perfect to store in your toolbox or kitchen drawer. The lithium-ion battery can be recharged at any time without damaging the original charge capacity or run time.

The Stylus also features an ideally located on/off switch at the front of the tool within reach of the finger grip area for easy, one-handed operation. Its soft start unique design helps users ease into the project at hand. With variable speeds the Stylus is easy to use on a wide range of materials and applications. A separate, speed control dial allows the tool to be turned on/off without losing the speed setting.

The Stylus is intended to be held like a pencil, but for added comfort and versatility the user can hold it in several different positions: reverse grip (the handle is inverted), the side grip (the handle is pushed to the side) and the stable grip (the handle is rested on a solid surface). With this increased adaptability, the Stylus is more than a tool – it is a literal extension of the hand that is perfect for quick fixes and comfortable, extended use.

The Dremel Stylus is ideal for intricate projects, including detailed drilling, carving, cleaning, detailed sanding, engraving, cutting and polishing. It is also perfect in a pinch for projects such as fixing furniture spindles, polishing cabinet hardware and slotting a stripped screw making it the perfect solution for your at-home needs. Complete with 25 genuine Dremel accessories, the Dremel Stylus retails for $69.99. It is available at most hardware and home improvement centers nationwide.
