I was at Menards the other day, and they had this Wen variable speed rotary tool on sale for 9.99 regulary 24.99. I could not resist and picked up two of them. Comes with 100 piece accesory kit. The variable speed works well and a keyless chuck is a nice touch. It’s nice and quiet to. Can’t go wrong for under 10.00 each. It is not to heavy and and is easy to hold. The spindal lock sometimes gets in the way, but that is probably how I am holding it.

Here are the specs

• Powerful 120V, 60Hz, 1 Amp Motor
• 8,000–30,000 RPM Variable Speed for Detail Work
• Spindle Lock for Bit Change
• 100 Piece Accessory Set For Cutting, Burr Removal, Polishing, Shaping, and Drilling
• 6 Foot Power Cord

Looks like it ought to be good for a lot of things – and you sure can’t beat the price. Good for you, Ray.

Looks like a Dremel clone. Great price. Great find.

I can always use another rotary tool… maybe I should get one for each bit?

Thanks for posting!

Yup the price is right. Menards has some good buys from time to time.
