I think you can get a dremel at walmart for 20 bucks... I'm fairly sure that's how much I paid for mine from there last time I needed one for work.

I have a corded dremel that I think is about to die any day now. Had it for about 10 years.

How do the cordless dremels hold up as far as the charge? Do you know if it stays full power to get 2 dogs done?

If you're careful about charging it to full and then running it all the way down you should easily be able to get 2 dogs done. We use nothing but the cordless ones at work and unless they're taken off and charged over and over and over again the batteries last pretty well. However, I wish they would let us use the corded ones as the batteries do tend to die when you're doing something like 8 filings a day.

I was really unhappy with the cordless because they take a lot longer to grind the nail. My dogs are much happier with the job the corded Dremel does because it is so fast (more power). My 2 have such super hard nails that the cordless one (I have the first one listed above) just won't do the job well.

I love my cordless one I can do 2 dogs and don't charge it, and do 2 dogs again in a week...

Reality I just forget to charge it... I have the first one and LOVE IT

I also have the grey one Mini Mite it doesn't hold a charge as long, so it's just okay.

FYI...when Bosch bought Dremel, Roto-zip & Vermont American, all three went downhill.
Dremel died a slow death... now what ? - The Garage Journal Board

The Proxxon Professional Rotary Tool IB/E PROXXON - Professional Rotary Tool IB/E
Is the daddy since Dremel lost their way. It has become the de facto standard for the modellers who run these things hard.
Proper gearboxes and proper motors make these things sing. Compared to a Dremel they also vibrate less and make less noise.

I wish our cord dremel was quieter.
I'm so tempted to get a cordless somewhere, if I just knew of one that didn't scream.

That Mini Mite one is really quiet...
Typically lower RPM = quieter

I use a Dremel* Mini Mite Model 750 cordless. I can do all three of my dogs nails when it is fully charged - one Dobe and two Boston Terriers. I prefer the cordless because it travels so easily.

I'm curious how long you've had that model?
We have a thing in this house about proprietary battery operated tools, when the battery dies models change then you wind up having to buy a whole new thing.

I have had it at least three years and it still works fine.

I have the Dremel made specifically for pets, and it's worked just fine. I keep it plugged in all the time to the charger, which is probably bad. I easily get through Dylan's nails, then just plug the battery back in. It is loud (I use it on high speed), but it doesn't seem to bother him.

Just a little bump to see if these are still good solid dremmels for dobes, or what else might be out there?

The 2 I have are still running strong... 3 years and counting for the big one think its 2 years for the smaller one

I am using the bigger one 7700 for Jones, and I have lent the smaller one 7300 mini mite to Medic for Emma.

Wisconsin is widely known for its cheese, but some may say it’s also known for the birthplace of the rotary tool. While Dremel may have wowed us with the 8200, Milwaukee has upped the ante with the M12 Rotary Tool 2460-21. Part of the ever popular M12 line up and mated with the new REDLITHIUM battery, the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Rotary Tool Kit 2460-21 is about to turn some heads...............

I like 120grit, it's fine enough to do the job and keeps vibration down. The key to doing it fast is centering the drum in the collet really well!

I know your post is old but... My dremel was dying as well; here's something to try before getting a new one. Unscrew the plastic casing and spray out the wire brushes on the motor with compressed air. Dust and gunk get all in there and it no longer has adequate contacts.

Hah. Minds could probably wander on that too. The collet is the little "chuck" that holds the accessory on the end of the dremel tool. The drum is the little round sand paper-y tube.

I got a 'pedi paws' (as seen on TV!) with Chanel. It's a battery operated dremel type tool & has a replaceable drum with sandpaper around it.

I find the pedi paws is slow. Not a lot of power & it bogs down if I hold it closer to Chanel's nail to try & speed up the process.

There is a dremel in my dh's workshop that I can scoop for the dog. Do you normally use the drum sander attachment with your dremels? (I think there is one, but he has more flat circle type sandpaper attachments.)

Before purchasing a new Dremel, you might give Dremel a call and see if they still have their trade-in/trade-up policy. A couple of years ago I replaced one of my corded Dremels with a cordless Dremel thru Dremel and I believe the cost was under $40.

If ya git ta thinkin' yer a person of some influence, try orderin' my dogs around. Cowgirl wisdom.
