Replacement for Dremel Stylus

Post by Arronax » Wed Jun 01, 2016 8:27 am

My wife's Dremel Stylus 1100 packed up (bad battery that can't be replaced). Since Dremel no longer makes the Stylus and she (and I) really like the weight of this tool and the pistol grip, we're looking for a suitable replacement.

Reviews on the similar Genesis GLHT72-65 weren't good. Any feedback on that tool?

I'm also looking at the Dremel A577 pistol grip attachment but I'm not sure what the lightest Dremel is that will work with it.

Suggestions appreciated.
Jim

It would mean buying a regular Dremel, but you could always get the flexi shaft pencil grip. I have it and love it.

Have you contacted Dremel about battery replacement? I've found their repair prices to be quite good.

Or just open it up, find out what the original battery specs were and find a generic replacement. They are easy to find- just check ebay.
