Came with 40-PC. Accessory Kit. The screw that comes with the mandrel slides in and out of its hole. Will not tighten to hold the cut-off wheels. Love the Nextec products but there can be problems bringing all of the parts together. I would like Sears to send me a new mandrel..........

Even with a fully charged battery, about 5 seconds after you start cutting using an abrasive wheel it trips out and stops. If you turn it off the battery is still green so you start again and 5 seconds later it trips out again, over and over making it useless.

I got this like others with the expectation of another very good Nextec tool. This one is a total wash. I was trying to cut a small piece of thin metal with it and not matter what speed or what pressure it would stall and require a reset. I have another brand tool that is similar and smaller that uses a lithium battery and it had no trouble with the work. While this feels solid and a winner, it can't handle anything that puts a light load on it. All of my other Nextec tools rock, this one is a keep in the box as it's not worth the trouble to use it. Unless I have a defective version (others have reported similar issues) this is a skip.

I got this tool mostly to speed up the roughing out process in my soapstone carvings, but have found so many other uses for it. With heavy cutting / carving the battery will last about 25-30 min on average. So I suggest getting at least one extra.
I own many NEXTEC tools and this is by far the most disappointing. The tool is large, lacks power, stalls and is (in many cases) unable to cut through the simplest of materials. I paid $29 on sale for this tool and value-wise it was not worth it. Love my other NEXTEC tools but would recommend avoiding this on.
It works great. The head and attachment area can accept Dremel type tools. Not as torquee as the Corded version but its power full. You just have to add more RPM and it will do everything any other dremel will do CORDLESS. I love it and I am using it a lot. Would be nice to be able to replace the Brushes somehow if the time comes.
I love all of my Nextec power tools. They run at full power till the battery is dead. Then it has a full charge in less than an hour. Al of these tools are so light and handy, no sore hands or arms when the job is complete, no matter how long it takes.
