The Dremel line of tools

Dremel Company

 
   


The story of the Dremel Company, which was founded in Racine, Wisconsin in 1932, is a tale of an amazing inventor named Albert J. Dremel. Although Dremel had several inventions over the years, including an electric razor blade sharpener that was successful as the company’s first product, it was his Dremel Moto-Tool that truly brought the company to the world’s attention.

This small, motorized multipurpose rotary tool is also known as the "pocket machine shop" and the "electric Swiss Army knife." It has proven to be much more versatile than even Dremel first imagined. It has been used by military doctors to reduce wound scarring and was later adapted for use in tattooing. Dentists have used it for crafting dentures. And the Defense Department reportedly used the Dremel tool to help create the first atomic bomb.

Dremel was acquired by the Emerson company in 1973, and that group later aligned with the Robert Bosch Tool Group in the 1990s, bringing the Dremel product line into the Bosch fold. Most consumers didn’t notice and went right on thinking up new ways to use their Dremel tool.

Product models include several rotary tools, rotary saws, contour sanders, scroll stations and saws, engravers and a multipurpose tool. There is also a complete line of bits, blades and other accessories to fit the various Dremel tools.
