Woodcarving Plans For Woodcarving/whittling Is An Expensive Power Carving Tool Better Than The Cheaper Dremel Brand?

For woodcarving/whittling is an expensive power carving tool better than the cheaper Dremel brand? - woodcarving plans

I begin with a small sculptures and carvings, I like it a tool that can help. I see that some have cost $ 300-800 (like "Master Carvers Micro Pro") and then there is the flexi duplicated Dremel tools and accessories for under $ 100. That does not bother me on the extra money if the product is to spend more - at a time. Does anyone know the benefits of more expensive products? What is the difference?


  1. Are you sure that you are using a Dremel tool?
    Until you have tried, do not know whether you love or hate.
    I want to buy an inexpensive tool for authentic brand in order to see if I like it or not. (Actually, I did not buy one, but to use wood.)
    Sometimes, economic instruments have been for years without problems, sometimes they are the shit, but not all will be well worth a try to repair when something breaks.
    And sometimes, the extra bits, and only fit for this machine so cheap, it is still some bits to the left when the case or if you have more bits for this machine can not replace.

    Cheap tools in a good tool shops are worse in this sense, better to go into the basket really cheap, poorly paid, but you know that buy the shit if you have a chain of good will who are paying more, but still rubbish .

    If you are ready to buy an expensive tool, make sure you use standard bits and extensions, and a repair service if something goes wrong.
