I updated this article to indicate that some Sears-branded rotary tools are manufactured by Dremel. This information came from looking at the design and plastic case molding numbers from a Sears tool and a Dremel-branded one, both seeming almost identical. This was confirmed by the following list of manufacturer codes of Sears-branded products: Old Woodworking Machines - Craftsman OEM List ClarusWorks 23:50, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Are you sure that the internal workings are the same? I understand that Sears will often request changes from the OEM to meet a lower price point. So often the Sears-branded product might be of lower quality than the OEM-branded one. Luigizanasi 04:56, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
Absolutely! I've repaired several Sears Tools (from drills to sanders and routers as well as a couple of Moto tools, and found all of them made with shortcuts that reduce their useful life and the price. Overall not recommended. Amclaussen.

[edit]

I am broken. I am here for a reason.

Does this look like an ad to you? --Broken 13:14, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

It might be an ad, but maybe not. If you think it should be deleted, you can put it on votes for deletion (VfD) by puttting {{subst:vfd}} on the top of the page. Then follow the red link of the box that will be on the top of the page and put your vote. Howabout1 15:44, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

It has been 3 month. Most people voted to keep, and the page has been cleaned up. I suggest removing the notice. DEng 01:13, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Apparently, the article actually was not ever properly nominated for deletion, so noone ever closed the "Vfd", because the link had only been posted on the article, please see WP:VFD#How_to_list_pages_for_deletion. Step III is somewhat important. --Mysidia (talk) 01:40, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

One section has all the appearance of being verbatim from the old advertisement alongside. I'll try and fix it. Stub Mandrel (talk) 18:14, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Not at all, Dremel is known worldwide as a useful tool, and the section explaining that people often mention it as a tool instead of a brand of moto tool shows it. Maybe the commenter that said the article seemed like an ad knows very little about tools! Amclaussen.

Cleaned up a bit, so to speak[edit]

I reordered the article, cleaned up some of the prose, and removed some non relevant points. One thing, perhaps the article "Dremel" should refer to the company, and a new one "Dremel Moto Tool" be created for the specific tool. That way, the other tools in the line can be covered if someone wishes. Your thoughts? Seaphoto 22:06, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Pets?[edit]

Many people use this on pet nails. I didn't see it listed there. Do a search for "dremel nail" or something and you'll find thousands of pages. It's what Peticure and Pedipaws are made from more or less, but with a shield on them. I'm figuring it's worth mentioning. -Babylon pride (talk) 04:13, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
