    I’ve found the flex-shaft to be one of the most useful Dremel tool accessories. It’s great for those remote, hard-to-reach areas of my work pieces where the width of the tool itself would hinder my efforts, ot it just can’t reach. It took a while for me to get the hang of using it, since it required a bit more hand control than I originally anticipated. Just make sure to keep it as straight as possible, and don’t bend it too much- it heats up pretty quickly, especially at the bends. And heat’s the big killer of this accessory. Also, be sure to have a bit of the flex-shaft grease handy for occasional lubrication.

    The only thing that annoys me about the flex-shaft is that it won’t accept a chuck to secure the bits, just collets. This can be a major frustration when I’m doing work that requires constant bit changes, with different bit diameters. Just when I thought I was rid of those pesky collets forever…

    my wrist won’t die from Carpal Tunnel, now!, December 7, 2009

    This review is from: Dremel 225-01 Flex Shaft Attachment (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I’ve had my 350 series Dremel for over ten years, now, and that poor workhorse of a tool has seen a LOT of use in that time, carving everything from wood to bone to amber to turquoise. My only beef about that awesome little bit of technology is the amount of vibration it puts my wrist through- ouch. If I’ve been going for a couple of hours (my average time on it is three hours at a stretch), my hand is a distorted, cramped up mess due to the vibration…

    Enter the flex-shaft. I got to try one of the old ones (the plain, black cased pen type) a bunch of years back, and I’d loved it then, but couldn’t afford one. They were still fairly new, and I was just starting out with learning how to use my tool anyway. But I’m getting serious into the carving, lately, and my wrist just couldn’t handle it, so I went nosing around for that wonderful little pen I could carve with and found the new model here. At first, I was worried that it wouldn’t be compatible with my beastie, which was old when I got it as a gift, but I looked up the specs, did some digging and found that it should fit with my model.

    Awesome.

    So I ordered it. ?

    Got it in less than a week and a half, and I immediately went for the little set of instructions, read ’em, did all the prep stuff to set it up, and started playing around with some silver I’d been saving to polish. Yes! I could work without my poor hand going numb! More awesome.

    So, all that windy blather aside, I’m happy with the flex-shaft. It’s everything I’d hoped for it to be: lightweight (definitely an issue with my joints), easy to use, and quite compatible with my old Dremel. I should have gotten one these ages ago!
