    This review is from: Black & Decker RTX-6 2 Amp 3-Speed Rotary Tool with 30 Accessories and 2 Spring Clamps (Tools & Home Improvement)

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:49 Mins

    This rotary tool is powerful, easy to handle, solidly built, and light weight. The attached video shows exactly what you get and recommends a low cost, potentially invaluable accessory. (The Dremel 4486 Multi Pro Keyless Chuck if you don’t care to watch.)

    A couple other thoughts… As you can see from the video, the bag I got is different from the storage case shown in the listing. The listing shows a fitted case. What I got was a nylon drawstring sack. For me that’s not an issue. When my RTX isn’t posing for pictures it’s hanging over my workbench connected to (and working very well with) a Milescraft 1003 Flex Shaft for Rotary Tools.

    Also, as an added treat I’ve placed at the very end of the video a comparison between the sound made by my RTX, while it’s connected to the Milescraft Flex Shaft, to the sound from my very handy and not very powerful Dremel 1100-N/25 7.2-Volt Stylus Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool Kit with Docking Station. For me it means I get almost “Stylus” convenience (at least at my workbench) with *lots* more power and only slightly more noise.

    Finally, one additional accessory I’ve found *very* handy, especially if you’re using the Flex Shaft is a Proxxon 38700 Foot Switch FS. There are other foot switches that include a variable speed option. That might be a good thing for some and in my experience it does not add much value and only is something more that can easily break.

    BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews, accompanied by detailed videos, can take the place of first-hand experiences that are often lacking in online shopping. I’ve always appreciated the help I’ve received from other reviewers and try to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and the video at least entertaining. If there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I’ll do what I can to fix it.

    Half the price and twice the power, why buy Dremel?, January 27, 2008
    This review is from: Black & Decker RTX-6 2 Amp 3-Speed Rotary Tool with 30 Accessories and 2 Spring Clamps (Tools & Home Improvement)
    First off, I had a hard time getting this question answered when I was looking at rotary tools, so I’ll say it right now: ALL DREMEL ACCESSORIES ARE USABLE BY THIS ROTARY TOOL. To someone who’s used a rotary tool before I’m sure this is a logical statement, but to someone new to the devices (as I was), it can be confusing. I thought there might be some notch or something in Dremel accessories that made them only usable by Dremel rotary tools, but there isn’t. They’re all the same.

    Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I just got my RTX a couple of weeks ago, and thus far I’m very impressed by it. It looks and feels substantial and sturdy, and fits very nicely in your hand as you work with it. Though I’d have preferred to see fully adjustable speed settings on this tool, the three speed settings seem to allow more than enough versatility in power to handle any project you throw at it. Mine came with a nice, simple case that’s about the same size as a 2 cd tall cd book, which I greatly prefer to the extremely large plastic case that most Dremel tools come in.

    My only complaints from this unit are that it doesn’t come with a very impressive array of bits/accessories (I bought a 150 piece Dremel accessory kit to supplement it), and I’ve had some difficulty with the locking mechanism that allows for you to switch accessories getting stuck. It’s always loosened up after a little persistent encouragement, but it’s still a decent sized annoyance when it happens.

    I’ve used a 300 series Dremel regularly in the past, so I feel that I can safely say that from what I have seen from this tool thus far, the Black and Decker RTX is just as capable a tool as the Dremel, perhaps more so (when you take into account the RTX’s superior power). That said, it should probably be noted that the RTX hasn’t been around for nearly as long as the Dremel brand, so it’s durability over time has yet to be tested.

    I’ve got to wonder why someone would pay 2 or 3 times the price of the RTX to get a Dremel… I suppose name recognition has a lot to do with it, after all people do refer to these things as “Dremel tools” not “Black and Decker tools”, but that doesn’t seem like a very wise way to make purchases. Puffs facial tissue works just as well as Kleenex, generic cotton swabs work just as well as Q-tips, and the RTX works just as well as a Dremel tool, so why pay the premium price?

    If you’re looking for the most bang for your rotary tool buck, this is the one you want to go with, hands down.
