    DefaultDremel Users

    Which brand do you use?
    I'm thinking of getting one. TIA

    I had a rechargeable Dremel but it seemed like it always ran out of charge about halfway through the second dog. To be fair, this was because I would forget to plug it in to recharge. I now use an Osterizer corded dog nail sander. It is a good bit lighter and easier to maneuver than the Dremel was, and it's always ready to use and doesn't run out of juice in the middle of the job.

    I use the MiniDremel. It has two speeds; 5000 and 10,000 rpm. It's rechargable and doesn't make a lot of noise.

    I have an electric variable speed dremel. The slow speeds work fine for toenails. Then I can also use it for household projects too.

    We have my mom's dremel that she never plugged in (see Labsrme).

    While it is annoying to have to charge it before using it, I don't like the frantically high-pitched whine of the plug-in type. Also, the plug-in one seems to be going at impossible speeds, and then slows waaaay down when it touches the nail. I think it just kind of freaks me out, honestly.

    Thanks so far. Will check to see if they have any that you use in the catalogues this weekend.

    We have said Dremel that was retired. ;D

    It works fine for us, but we only have one set of nails to do. When we add another dog in the future, we may have to look at getting something else.

    ETA: Sorry for the repeat post. I didn't realize Katherine had posted.
