    I’ve come onto some applications that a corded tool is a pain to use and precision is very important. My experience with Dremel (4000) is that they tend to have quite a bit of shaft runout. Since I already have a lot of Bosch batteries, I’m wondering if there is such a thing, available elsewhere in the world?

    (I’m aware of Proxxon tools, but I need the dremel compatible accessory collar to thread onto attachments)

    Thanks, shot in the dark managed to hit something. 😀

    Now I’ll have to go find out if the collar is compatible with dremel and a good price for it.

    Consider Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de, I find that their shipping is significantly better than Toolstop (I used them to get my Bosch rotary tool.)

    The Bosch has a huge advantage over the Dremel: It has constant speed motor electronics. I find that its pretty hard to load down even if you really push it. It works even better with the 4ah battery.

    Below is a video from higw65 from the Bosch Powertools Germany forum comparing a Dremel 8200 against the Bosch GRO. The only thing the Dremel has over it is a motor brake and the quick change system.

    Edit: Yes the little threaded collar is compatible with the Dremel. I’ve tested it with various Dremel accessories including the plunge router base.

    Thanks, I’d take constant speed control over brake any day. Although it’s strange that Dremel does have it on the 4000 series but not 8200.

    Amazon UK price for the Bosch is literally three times the 8200 here though, so I’ll have to wait and see if it comes down a bit.

    @jzmtl Amazon.de has it going for 100 USD as a bare tool. Its about the same as a 8200 in USD for me. That was originally why I went with the Bosch rotary tool over the Dremel, I might as well have the 30 minute charge time on the Bosch batteries.

    Definitely more heavy duty than my Dremel tool. Thank you for the link Jon.

    Oh that’s not bad, I’ll have to take a look. 8200 is about same on amazon.ca but comes with two batteries. Then again I have Bosch batteries and chargers so it doesn’t matter that much.

    That little unit has some good power over that Dremel in that video clip .

    Yeah the Dremel 8220 actually has a tiny motor if you think about it. My 4000 is over 8″ long, a Mastercrap 3000 knock off is 7″, and that’s all motor. The 8220 is 6″ according to official spec, consider the 12v battery is 3″ by itself, there isn’t a lot of space left for the motor.

    The Bosch seems to be about 2″ longer so motor is much bigger.

    I’ve successfully pushed HSS 1/4″ straight cutter bits in the Bosch rotary tool at 1.5D for the axial depth. I heard the motor slow down but I was more worried about the bit more than anything else.

    @jzmtl,
    Check your local CTC they have the Bosch corded one on line, Product #54-7138-4.
    Just not the cordless model.

    eBay has them for $99 plus $28 overseas shipping. I bought one. I’ve dealt with the seller before.

    S. Korean seller with good feedback rating has one for ~$110, with free shipping. If I didn’t have the M12 one, I’d be tempted.
