Dremel Stylus™ Delivers Microscopic Precision
When working on Navy-operated air, water and land vehicles with electrical parts so small they need to be viewed under a microscope, precision isn’t just a goal. It’s a necessity.
That’s why Randy Tolbert, an electronics technician who specializes in microelectronics for the Department of the Navy’s Electronic Warfare Division at Crane Naval Base in Crane, Ind., has come to rely on the Dremel Stylus for precise control when working on small electronics.
“The Dremel Stylus is by far a design of genius,” said Tolbert. “I use it constantly throughout the work day.”
Tolbert, who resides in Mitchell, Ind., has worked for the Navy for five years, during which time he’s tested various brands and sizes of rotary tools. His responsibilities include working on electronics involved with aircraft, submarines and land-based vehicles. He uses rotary tools as his primary instrument in rebuilding electronic boards – some which cost more than a million dollars – including replacing surface components and excavating subsurface components.
When the Dremel Stylus hit the market in 2006, Tolbert tried one out and knew there was no way he’d revert back to using another rotary tool. In fact, he liked the Dremel Stylus so much that he bought one for every technician in his department and also keeps hundreds of bits on hand for use. Tolbert and his team commonly use Dremel burrs, sanding wheels and abrasive tips on fiberglass, ceramic and polyamide.
“I have used rotary tools for years, but none hold up to the actual Dremel brand. I see no comparison,” said Tolbert. “The Stylus has allowed me more control and comfort when performing very tedious tasks than other hand tools. The Stylus offers the absolute best hand control and its variable speed makes this tool a dream.”
|Featured Product – Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit
Take creative pumpkin carving to a whole new level this Halloween with the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit. The kit allows carvers to create intricate designs on the surface of a pumpkin after it has been cut open and cleaned out, giving the gourd a sophisticated, iridescent appearance compared to traditional jack-o-lanterns.
Creating a spectacularly sculpted pumpkin with the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit is fast and easy. The kit’s 6-Volt Dremel Alkaline Cordless rotary tool features two speeds – 7,000 and 14,000 rotations per minute – to aid carvers with varying levels of experience. Also included in the kit are 10 spooky carving templates, such as a witch, ghost and skeleton, that range in levels of difficulty. By affixing the template, carving becomes as easy as tracing a drawing. Additional templates can be downloaded from the carving templates page on the Dremel Web site, or carvers can easily make their own by printing a black and white image.

I want to water-seal my deck before winter hits and need to find a driver that can be used outdoors and that also has enough power to lower my deck screws. Will the Dremel Driver work for this application?
~ Matt M., via e-mail
Yes – the Dremel Driver can be used on a wide range of light- to medium-duty applications and would be a great tool to use for lowering deck screws. While its compact power provides enough versatility to precisely set a No. 1 screw, it also features enough torque to drive a No. 10 screw into pine and a variable speed that reaches 300 rotations per minute. The Dremel Driver’s slim nose design will allow you to easily tackle awkward angles on your deck, and its ergonomic fit and T-handle design will help make driving comfortable. With a 7.2-volt rechargeable lithium-ion battery that holds a charge for up to two years, the Dremel Driver will be ready to go whenever you are.
