Everything You Need To Know About Dollhouses And Miniatures.

A Mini Electric Drill – 5 Reviews

Well, it is no secret that I prefer decent quality for my tools and ‘Dremel’ is just thé mini electric drill that I have been using since the beginning to craft my dollhouses and miniatures. I was going to say: German ‘gründlichkeit’ – quality, but it turns out it has Austrian origin after I Googled it 🙂 Dremel Company.

Now, as I am having my website in English, I just realized that Dremel is not always the number one choice outside of Europe or worldwide. So today I am going to review 5 other brands for you.

Do you need a little reminder of why you would need a mini electric drill? Read a previous article about it here.

My Final Opinion :

I have a Dremel with a cord. It is pricey, admitted, but for me it is, I repeat myself I know, the best one on the market. Thé best quality and thé best power.

Final thoughts.

Euhm, sorry, I made it pretty clear which one is the best mini electric drill, in my opinion, but don’t let that influence your decision 😉 Just know this, sooner or later if you want to craft miniatures yourself (and I don’t mean the kits, etc), you will definitely use a small rotary tool!

Do you have any questions or remarks about this article, let me know in the comments!

And as always: happy crafting!

Kind regards,

Lizzy

  1. Hi there! While the standard for pet groomers was the stylus tool made by well known rotary tool maker, this tool is equal to the task of grinding pet nails. In fact, the LED light is an improvement over the others tools enabling visibility, while the 8V battery supplies more than enough power to trim nails and the quiet motor doesn’t frighten the pet.
