I am thinking of buying a new Dremel .
I have a Fordom but I want something more portable.
Is the 4300 worth the extra money over the 4000, I cant see much difference except I think the 4300 is BB and a tiny bit more power?
Or is there a better brand I should be looking at?
Any comment or advise would be welcome.
Thanks T.C.

If you don't mind the 4200, I've got a Dremel 4200-6/40 High Performance Rotary Tool with EZ Change, 47-Piece Kit brand new still in the box with Dremel Flex Shaft #225-01 I'd sell. If interested email me with an honest offer, and we can talk.
I've also got a Dremel 3000, Dremel 3000-2/28 2 Attachments/28 Accessories Rotary Tool as well, new in box.

Thanks for the replies, Although I was asking about the difference between the two ?
I do thank you Louis and I will send you an offer if I decide on the 4200, that's if Ted hasn't beat me to it ?
I think I need to get to the box store and look at them in person.

You will be happy with all three.
I would buy the 4200 from a forum member, because it is the cool thing to do.

Not trying to change your mind on obtaing a Dremel product, but don't expect the performance to be on par with your Foredom. Like you, I lived with the Foredom and then tried to incorporate a Dremel into the modeling process. I've discovered the reality (for myself) is that the Dremel has been a long term shelf orphan and apparently has little chance of making it out of the shadows.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Whichever one you choose, the first thing you should do is replace their collet system with a three-jawed chuck.

Thanks again for the replies
The only reason I am thinking of buying a Dremel is to get into places with a power tool that aren't practical to get to with my fordom.
The 4300 I am looking at has the 3 jaw chuck and I don't need the flex shaft the 4200 comes with as I have the Fordom.
I haven't owned a Dremel tool since my last one got so bad I couldn't change the tools because of there collet system .
I am concerned that it may become a "shelf queen" as stated above so I really don't want to spend a bucket of money for something to sit on a shelf.
Maybe I should look at the 4000 as they are less money with the same power ?

I have had several members PM asking for a price, so for all to see I'm asking $100.00 for the #4200 model, and $65.00 for the #3000 model, both come with the Flex Shaft #225-01, plus whatever shipping would be. I also posted this information in the RR-L Swap meet.

Thanks Louis I know on most forums it is protocol for the original poster to get first option to buy an item.
So with that in mind I will wave that option at this time as I am not sure of what I actually want to buy and I don't want to hold up your sale.
Thank you for the offer to sell me one at a good price and I wish you luck with your sale.
