Dremel Stylo+ Review
The Dremel Stylo+ is basically a miniature version of the Dremel rotary tool we’re all familiar with. I’ve had a Dremel in my shop for years and it’s saved my bacon several times. From burnishing leather, sanding in nearly impossible to reach places, and even grinding a keyway in the shaft of my jointer cutterhead to repair the direct drive coupler… they’re just handy!
I can’t think of anything a Dremel can do that can’t be accomplished with others tool (but isn’t that always the case?). But it’s the Dremel’s form factor that saves the day, the ability to reach into spots other tools can’t, or achieve the finesse other tools can’t.
The Dremel Stylo+ basically doubles down on that concept. It can use all the same tools of it’s big brothers, but is significantly more compact and lighter. Perfect for when the most control is needed.

The Dremel Stylo+ has all the critical features of its big brothers that make them so useful.
A collect lock and wrench so accessories can be tightened enough that slippage won’t be a problem.
Variable speed to get the accessory spinning at just the right speed for the task at hand.
Plenty of power to get the job done. I can’t recall ever stalling any of my Dremels.
Knowing this tool had all the features I would need from a rotary tool, my only concern was the ergonomics. Scaling it down so much, would it fit well in the hand and be easy hold?
Fortunately, it didn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s a lot more comfortable to use than my 4000/4300 series Dremels. I’ve never thought of them as being uncomfortable or unwieldy, but I definitely appreciate the level of control I have with the Stylo+, it’s like holding a pencil!
The Dremel Stylo+ also doesn’t disappoint on power. My wife is a lot better freehanding designs than I am, so she had a go with the small burl tool at carving my logo in a cherry off cut. Once we found the sweet spot for the speed, it buzzed right through it!
With it’s scaled down size and power, this is meant to be a craft tool and it definitely fits in the craft world better than the larger Dremel rotary tools. But, it still has a place in my shop. I’m sure this Dremel is going to get borrowed my wife the most, but I have no doubt the day will come where this is just the tool I need to get out of a jam.
