    The Dremel 8220 tool has worked as needed for years now, on small jobs from cleaning out a rabbit cut in a box to
    pumpkin craving that I did with my Grand-daughter. Brought another battery, the tool has gauge shows the level of charge of the working battery. Work great on drilling small holes, and even cutting off bolts.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I do a lot of small projects at home, and this is by far my most used tool, from sanding to routing, to drilling small holes or cleaning up, you name it, this thing can do it. It also comes with a keyless chuck so you don’t have to change the collett size to suit your bits, and in terms of convenience this is awesome and makes all the difference in the world! The adjustable speed takes a little time to get use to, and at most i go almost 50% but you want to slide it very slowly because it will switch into high gear fast if you’re not careful. Honestly 100% speed in my opion is way too much for anything i could think of using it for, perhaps some engraving work with detail bits but you shouldn’t need to kick it up that high for much else. The battery life is so so, but i have two 12v batteries so i just swap them off the charger after each use, and so I’ve never had a problem with keeping it powered up, and it charges pretty fast, fast enough to where if you need to swap out again it will already be fully charged by the time you drain your current battery. One important note to remember about this dremel is you don’t want to slow the motor with any kind of friction, the stopping force is not too bad for a wireless model, but of course you’ll have a higher threshold on the stop force with a corded tool due to nature of voltage and current characteristics. So in turn, applying a lot of stopping force will heat it up quickly, which is a big no no for any motor. Make sure to read the label on your 8220, because there are some restrictions to what you can attach on it. Not a whole lot but importantly nonetheless. I think I’ve covered the vital info on owning an 8220 dremel, at least to provide enough info to base a selection on it, but i need to also add that from my experience, dremel has an outstanding customer service support center! When i inquired on some concerns, it was easy fast with no hassle and the rep was very informative and knew her products. I have not run into much companies that provided as much support as she did for Dremel, so I even wrote to Dremel a recognition of her services. Thanks again for the great experience yall!

    I never used my old dremmel cause it was a hastle. I had to pull it out set it up plug it in just to use it for a 10second job. If its not convenient it’s not going to get used on a regular basis. That’s why we all use cordless drills ect. So I got this dremmel it’s just as fast as my corded dremmel but the ease of battery operated tool. This thing works great ice now used it more in a few days then my old dremmel in years. Also no cord gives you freedom of movement when useing the tool as well as where I use the tool. No more extension cords if I needed more than 4ft from a plug. If you buy this you’ll have a tool you will love.

    Best price anywhere.
    Rapid communication within hours after I placed the order on the internet. Was ready for pick up via a courtesy phone call. Very professional.

    I finallly got to use the product on 03-19-16, i would have been stranded if i did not purchase this item after a challenging new car trailer hitch installation which needed cutting modification. A blade would not cut it no matter what.

    Dremel came to the rescue and made a challenging job an easy one at that.

    Best product to purchase with lithium power battery.
    Will recommend highly, remember, Lithium is best.

    Due to the larger size I was a bit apprehensive to buy it. After trying it out I’m very satisfied with the weight and balance for pencil work. Using the cut off wheels on heavy plastic proved it’s worth on the first cut. The cut off wheel did not slow down in a heavy cut which ultimately helps you hold steady instead of the constant grabbing when the speed fluctuates. The on board nose wrench design is a very welcomed plus.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this 6 months ago n use it daily it is my favorite tool for my lapidary work the speed control is perfect for all the detailed work in my stone carvings

  7. sglmom

    ended up purchasing this cordless unit due to the fact that I am now older, but still enjoy my hobbies (including To Gauge Modeling).
    This is light enough for me to handle (I have arthritis in my hands and it has a hand size to be comfortable for me to hold but a little pain in the extra weight)
    and it is easy enough for me to change out the bits as well (I like the variable speed and the control I have with a tool like this)
    The one ding is that the little rotary sanding discs do loosen quickly in use, don’t stay in place on their drum.
    Also it is a bit tough for someone with arthritis in their hands to use the “quick change” .. I just don’t have the manual dexterity I did a couple decades ago (so it is hard for me to change between sand disc and cut disc (For instance)

    I spent a good while looking at different dremel tools and this one has an edge over all of them: portability. I was a bit worried about weather or not the battery would last long enough to complete the work I was doing and I have to say that for the power output that this delivers its pretty amazing. I’m averaging about 30 min at 30,000 rpm and it also puts out a decent amount of torque. I would strongly recommend getting the flex tool along with this.

  9. cornbread

    My wife bought this as a present for me . I had it for a couple days and I decided to open the box. Both ends of the cardboard box where sealed. I opened the plastic box and the tool had been used and the accessories box had been opened. 1 sanding drum had used.

  10. Tomtefco

    I use this mainly for cutting and grinding metal. I am a professional locksmith and constantly need to shorten bolts and screws, modify strikes and bezels, and cut and shape various other metal components. I like to use the Dremel and the E-Z Lock wheels better than a hack saw for speed and cutting accuracy.

  11. Gene

    I am working on tiling my bathroom and this tool has come in handy. I needed something to cut small holes in tile and the hole saw diamond bits were expensive. Buying 2 different size diamond coated hole saw bits and the arbor for them would have bought this dremel. Just seemed like better value for my money. I get more out of this dremel than I would the hole saws.

  12. Zach

    Works awesome for sharping chainsaw blades. Was one of the main reasons I bought it was for tool sharping. Strong Motor strength, and Great adjustable motor speed. up to 30,000 rpms

  13. loafer

    This product has plenty of power and long lasting battery and do not have to hassle with a cord. This makes it much better than a corded unit.

  14. Jacob

    Great product. Only complaint from me is that the battery dies quickly. It only comes with one so your done when the t happens.

  15. Darrell

    Bought the 8220 cordless rotary tool thinking I didn’t want to be chained to a wall. But the cordless is worse, 15 minutes at 1/2 speed and you’re done. Don’t forget the 30 minute recharge. I had foreseen this problem and dismissed it thinking I’ll just pop another in. Unfortunately, my doesn’t keep them in stock. Still gave it 4 stars due to the fact that if it’s running it’s doing it’s job.

  16. Eugene Toomes

    Bought this tool to replace a “corded” one I bought in 1971. Use it primarily for cutting hard music wire and some wood shaping as I am an avid R/C airplane builder. I charged the battery after bring it home and have used it extensively for a month without having to re-charge. Find that the tool is well balanced and is easy to hold. Its great not having to mess around with a power cord when working in tight areas. Most definitely recommend to others. The one I had before lasted 44 years and had to be replaced due to the cord cracking from age ;>) Also own a Dremel scroll saw that is the same age so I know that the quality of these tools is superb.

    Needed new tool for trimming show dog nails. Great for all my dogs. Plenty of power in a cordless device

  34. CapitalW

    I have both this one and the Dremel Micro and use them both regularly around the house.

    I love the integrated wrench/nose cap as I don’t have to worry about having a wrench with me, or losing it. This rotary tool is certainly hefty in the hand, but is a lot more maneuverable not having a power cord. What Dremel calls the “golf grip” is definitely the way to hold it (the Micro version holds nicely like a pencil). I like the slide power switch better than a pushbutton power switch due to its proximity to the lock button as you are much less likely to hit the lock button instead of turning it off. The sliding speed control gives good fine control over speed.

    I have not lacked for power, as rotary tools like this work by their speed, not force just as the manual makes correct mention. Battery life is good (I admit to wishing they included two batteries as I’ve been spoiled by many tools that include two batteries). I have been surprised by how long it goes before the battery needs charging…again, follow the manual’s advice and let the speed of the attachment do the work. The one hour charger is a plus in keeping you in business.

    My only real complaint is that the numbers for speed seem to wear off easily. It would have been nice for the numbers to be molded a little lower than the body and then filled with ink instead of simply painting the numbers on.

    The case is very nice and sturdy, and will hold a lot of accessories like different sized collets, right angle adapters, and other adapters as well as the charger. They missed the boat on storing the manual, however as it doesn’t slide far enough to stay in place, but that’s a minor quibble.

    Over all, I place the 8220 rotary tool among my “must have” tools.

  35. fyrefyter

    I am currently building a “O” scale train layout and find that this tool is a definite must have. It is great for cutting track to custom sizes and drilling SMALL holes for train installation,where regular drills are bulky and too big to handle for the delicate work that needs to be done on model railroads. Love the cordless feature-No cord to deal with! Attachments are many for just about any task you may need for your particular hobby use. You can Cut,trim,Drill,Buff depending on the task you need to do. I also bought the SAW MAX version also for cutting plywood for roads and will later definitely use it for a tile job for small tile cuts etc. You may want to buy the Angle device for it to make certain cuts easier to do or to get into small areas.

  36. FentonsFinest

    This is was a pivotal tool that I use while tiling. It has the ability to cut and modify very precisely.

  37. George

    We use one of these on Habitat for Humanity house builds. It’s great for trimming vinyl siding, cutting the various details to fit siding around windows, doors, and other wall penetrations. We like battery operated tools so we don’t have to drag an extension cord around the house. The battery lasts more that 1/2 a day, so as long as we remember to charge the battery at lunch, it’s great. Only complaint is that I wish it came with 2 batteries. It’s such a great tool, I bought one for myself!

  38. Ben

    It’s the same amp motor as the corded version, but without the limitation of the cord. How could you go wrong?!? Oh only give it one battery. That’s how. This Dremel is way better than my old one I replaced, and I will be looking for a second battery to fix this mild inconvenience.

  39. RichMac

    Handles real well. My only concern is battery life. I ran out of juice just trying to carve two basic stencils on a planter.

  40. Blackdress1800

    My husband has an older cordless model that I was always borrowing. Enough already, with borrowing! I decided to buy my own to work on those little projects where an orbital sander or regular drill were just too big/too much. Thus far, I’ve been really pleased. The multiple speeds is handy. The ergonomic design is comfortable and the battery life has been great. This obviously isn’t a tool for all day use (not for me, anyway), but for those pesky tight areas or smaller jobs, it’s darned near perfect.
