The Dremel Micro is the perfect combination of size, ergonomics and power that make it the ultimate tool for both precise and light duty DIY tasks. Designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger like a pencil, the Dremel Micro allows a grip that is close to the workpiece for superior maneuverability and control. To illuminate projects, the Dremel Micro has LED lights built uniquely into the nose cap to aid in vision and accuracy.

I have had this tool for several years and really like it’s weight, speed, power, and how long it keeps a charge .
Cordless and a light on the end makes it the best for trimming dog’s nails.
I purchased the Micro 8V max tool kit to replace an older and obsolete Dremel tool that I had used for at least 15 years. I was looking for a small unit that could be held comfortably it the hand and still give full control of it’s action at any speed. This did the job beyond my expectations. I found that the LED lighting was also a plus as it does a great job of lighting the work surface. A feature that was absent on my old unit and a welcome addition to my new Micro 8v. The stand is also well thought out and fits nicely on my work bench.
When I got my micro Dremel it was for a project and it worked perfectly I loved it and would definitely recommend it for anyone else
I have two Model 8050 cordless Dremel tools. It charges quickly, retains a charge for a long time. My first 8050 was used sparingly, simply because I did not use it all that often as I was/am building my railroad. It held a charge for just over a year with periodic use. And, I when I needed a Dremel tool for my work room, I purchased a second unit. Both are valued tools in my tool box; each serves my heeds well.I HIGHLY recommend the 8050 Kit as an essential tool for any hobbiest.
The first project I did with this tool was drill holes in about 24 seashells, so my wife could make a mobile out of them. It required the use of a diamond tool with a cone shape (#7144). I had to run the tool at 28K RPM. After burning the first tool up in 4 shells I found that about every 3 seconds I had to dip the point in water, to cool it and clean the shell cuttings out of the diamond media. My comment about lack of power is because as the point of the tool broke through the shell, it would always “jam” and stop the motor. When I pulled it back and started again, without so much pressure, it most times went right through, not a big deal.Being cordless is a huge advantage and in the last week I have used it multiple times outside and working on my boat.
I had tO send my dremel back to be fIxed It was fIxed and sent back promptly!
I got this as a gift. I love Dremel! I use this on trips. I work with glass and this is. Fast and easy tool to use.
Love this tool I use it everyday! I wish it wasn’t so hard to find to purchase but the replacement plan is fantastic and I love how dremel stands behind their products
I got my micro cordless 8050 a couple years ago, and I am the BIGGEST fan!! This joker lets me bear down and get ugly or will do the lightest of tasks without a whimper! Most cordless rotary tools just don’t have the guys for hard work, but the Micro steps way out ahead of the crowd to please! However, the battery life leaves a LOT to be desired – I am a coppersmith and my husband is a mechanic – and having 10 minutes or less (at best) of full throttle just wasn’t enough. This is the first Dremel I’ve *loved* to depend on, and hope to find more like it in the cordless product line! I’ve had a Dremel for many years and a tool like this makes up for the ones that just don’t meet my standards.
I Just restored my Silver oil lamp with my Micro, love it.Oh btw the tape on my dremel is to hold that sticker that was peeled of when i took it out of the box, had to take two stars off for funny stuff like this. Hope Dremel helps me out with a spare sticker the dremel works amazing though.
This tool is so easy to use due to being cordless. Great power and it holds a long charge. The led light is priceless for detail work.
I love the light and the variable speed. It does the job!
I purchased this unit about a 3 weeks ago and have been VERY satisfied with it, This is my second Dremel Rotary tool which was purchased while I was in the military in 1971. It lasted all these years and still works but thought it was time for an up-dated model. The new unit is being used in the construction of a wooden ship model, with lots of detail. That’s the main reason for the purchase of the Model 8050. Light and wireless. Looking forward to a long and happy experience with it.
I’m a little person and this Dremel fits my hands perfectly. The added feature is a light that shines on my projects. It also has a gauge on it to tell me when my battery is getting weak.
I really liked at first, but becomes hot pretty quick. Now won’t change at all
I build miniature buildings, dollhouses and dioramas. The Micro is small enough to allow me to get inside the small buildings and strong enough to do the job! I have many Dremel products, but the Micro is my “go to” tool!
I bought this to shorten my dogs’ nails with the idea to use for other small projects as well. It’s challenging to place the tool into the charger so that it charges. Can’t just set the tool into the charger base. The tool is very loud on anything but the lowest setting.
I am a dog groomer. This light weight adjustable speed dremel with the light is perfect! I use it all the time. Very reliable.
Would have given a 5 if it came with a case to keep everything in.
