Merge with rotary tool[edit]

Rotary tools such as dremels are quite different from the rotary saw used mainly to do cu-outs in drywall. Rotary tools have all kinds of attachments, saws only accept spiral bits. Just the action is the same. the rotary saw is more like a small router and has a base. Luigizanasi 08:34, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Then rotary saw should be merged into dremel and/or rotary tool since it is basically a subclass of the tool with some more specializations. Basically my dremel and my rotozip are pretty much the same except the dremel has more attachments. Cowbert 22:32, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Support - I think that Dremel should also be merged into rotary tool with rotary saw. --Kkmurray 03:31, 4 April 2007 (UTC) (also just found this discussion: Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Dremel --Kkmurray 03:43, 4 April 2007 (UTC) )

Oppose - I think the Dremel brand name is well-known and common enough to merit its own article (it's like merging Kleenex with facial tissue). TheHYPO 03:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Support - I agree with Kkmurray that Dremel, rotary tool and rotary saw should all be merged. I'd also support an article about the Dremel Company but think that the material in Dremel mostly belongs in the aforementioned future merged article. --Evil1987 16:46, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Rotary tools are produced by many different manufacturers worldwide, such as Dremel, Skil and Einhell to name a few. I feel a merge of the articles would only be beneficial if these commercial brand names are each listed as a subclass of the main article entitled Rotary tool.

Dremel Should Not Be Merged[edit]

The Dremel name is well known and should not be merged with rotary tool. Albert Dremel alone should have his own page. A.J. Dremel had 56 patents when he died and he was one of the first Americans to introduce profit sharing at his Dremel factory. He is a significant part of American history and niether he nor his invention should be merged into a generic category.
