August Exclusive
Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool

Dremel 3000

  Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool

The new Dremel 3000 rotary tool makes over the brand’s most popular rotary tool, the Dremel 300 Series, featuring innovative, user-requested upgrades to the tool’s design, function and ergonomics. While shorter than its predecessor, the new tool is more powerful, comfortable and compact, providing users with even more control for precision and detailed work.

General applications for the Dremel 3000 rotary tool include carving, engraving, routing, grinding, sharpening, cutting, cleaning, polishing, sanding and drilling. The new tool also features the Dremel brand’s first EZ Twist™ nose cap design, including an integrated wrench that allows the nose cap to be used to tighten accessories and eliminates the need for a separate wrench.

With a more efficient fan design and side vents, the Dremel 3000 has lower noise and vibration for a more comfortable tool experience over extended periods of time. The tool also features a trumpet-shaped nose cap for a pencil grip hold and an integrated hanger bail that is out of the users’ way.

Additionally, the Dremel 3000 is compatible with all Dremel accessories and attachments, except the high-performance PL400 Planer and MS400 MultiSaw Attachments, so users can use the full functionality of the Dremel rotary tool system. From sharpening lawn mower blades to routing decorative designs into wooden cabinets, the Dremel 3000’s new symmetrical, industrial design offers users a clear solution for all DIY, hobby and craft needs.

The Dremel 3000 will be available beginning in September 2011 at most hardware and home improvement centers nationwide for an SRP of $55 to $75 USD and $69 to $89 CAD.

Dremel brand manager Gavin Jerome demonstrates the new EZ Twist Nose Cap

For more insight on the Dremel brand’s upcoming fall tool release, we sat down with Dremel Group Product Manager Gavin Jerome to discuss the tool’s development and his favorite new features.

Dremel: Why did the Dremel brand decide to create the Dremel 3000 rotary tool?
Gavin Jerome: The existing 300 Series had been in the market for six years and was due for an upgrade. Even though the 300 Series has excellent user satisfaction, we learned about key tool improvements derived through extensive user research and wanted to incorporate those into the new Dremel 3000 rotary tool.

D: What’s your favorite aspect of the new tool?
GJ: The new EZ Twist™ nose cap is fantastic. The new design features an integrated wrench that allows the nose cap to be used to tighten accessories and eliminates the need for a separate wrench. You’ll never have to search for a lost wrench again!

D: Where did the Dremel brand first get the idea for the new EZ Twist nose cap?
GJ: We credit this idea internally to Dremel engineer, Walter Bernardi. He came up with this idea during a series of tool tests he was doing on another project. Rather than having to look for a wrench every time he wanted to make an accessory change, Walter used the nose cap to tighten the accessories, making the new feature the ultimate convenient addition to the new tool. Other individuals responsible for the Dremel 3000’s great new features include Dremel project leader Scott Novotny and Dremel project engineer Eric Hlinka.

D: What would you say is the ideal project for the Dremel 3000?
GJ: There are many ideal projects for the Dremel 3000. The tool is incredibly versatile with a new, symmetrical design and can be an integral part of hundreds of projects. The tool gives a surprising amount of control as well as performance. It can comfortably cut through different materials such as metal, wood and tile with the EZ Lock™ Cut-Off Wheels available. It is also perfect for optimal control when carving or engraving.

EZ411 EZ Lock™ Sanding Disc

Trio Router Bits
The Dremel brand is introducing three new carbide router bit sets compatible with the Dremel Trio this September. Featuring the maximum performance and durability of carbide, each set offers either three or five high-speed, carbide bits for detailed cutting and routing. The TR750 set features three straight router bits for grooves, dadoes and rabbets; the TR770 set is a five-piece starter set ideal for making decorative edges; and the TR780 is a five-piece specialty set for making rabbets, grooves and rounded corners. From adding a decorative edge to inlaying wood, the new carbide router bit sets are must-have accessories for any Trio user.

EZ Lock Sanding Discs
For all of your rotary sanding needs, the Dremel brand is adding three new sanding discs to the EZ Lock family this fall: the EZ411, EZ412 and EZ413. By eliminating the screw placement on top of the accessory, the new EZ Lock Sanding Discs allow for innovative, flat sanding with Dremel rotary tools. These new discs also last twice as long and remove twice as much material as regular Dremel sanding discs. At 60 grit, 180 grit and 240 grit, the collection of new discs is the perfect match for sanding any flat surface or edge.

New accessories will be available beginning in September 2011 at most hardware and home improvement centers nationwide for an SRP ranging from $4.99 to $18.99.

Dremel 3000 cutting gutter guard

Keeping the outside of a home in premium condition is one of the best ways to maintain the value of the property. Gutters flooded with leaves, brush and other unwanted objects can cause gutters to overflow and potentially leak water into the house. To avoid this, expert craftsman and HGTV star Chip Wade recommends using a Dremel 3000 rotary tool, the EZ456 EZ Lock Cut-Off Wheel and the EZ402 Mandrel to install metal expanded sheeting as gutter guard to keep the outside of your home looking fresh.

Follow the project steps below, or view a demonstration from Wade on www.Facebook.com/Dremel.

Step one: Start by measuring the length of the gutter.

Step two: Insert the EZ402 Mandrel into the Dremel 3000 and attach the EZ456 EZ Lock Cut-Off Wheel.

Step three: Clamp the gutter guard down to the table and begin cutting, being sure to follow the line.

Step four: Snap the cut gutter guard onto the gutter. Be sure gutters are clear of debris before attaching.
