Dremel vs Harbor Freight Rotary Tool

This is why you shouldn’t buy the Harbor Freight Rotary Tool.


Albert J. Mendoza says:

So I just bought my harborfreight rotary tool, in spite of this review. I used it to cut out a broken bolt deep inside my engine bay in addition to a pesky rebar that was sticking out in the garage. 25 bucks and cheaper with 20% off coupon. But what I identified as being critical was the bit, so I got a nice set of diamond disks and combined it with the right RPM-setting and pressure (you want the bit to do the work, not your arm pressing down as that’ll damage any rotary tool)

Great cat though.

Francis Jacob Christian says:

That Harbor Freight tool is JUNK! On mine the bits wouldn’t stay in!

Casey's Garage says:

guys I posted a video of the black and decker rotary tool. I show it in action cutting bolts. check it out. its a good competitor for these.

Matthew Castaneda jr. says:

Because you made this video you saved me hard earned cash. Thank you. Great comparison.

Anthony Butera says:

They are both huge. HF sells a pneumatic version that works rather well. Central Pneumatic-55,000 rpm adjustable speed.

Scott Tobkes says:

$22 vs $80

Your cat seems to prefer the Dremel tool.

Jamie Clark says:

The dremel 3000 I just bought seems a lot more like the HF one than your Dremel 4000…

Maybe I should take mine back to Home Depot…
