Ryobi 229 Piece Rotary Tool Kit

ryobi_rotary.jpgIt looks to us like the rotary tool has finally caught on. We always thought that it was really only a matter of time before this tool got beyond wood carvers, engravers and other specialists. We use ours on almost a daily basis, for everything from drilling to sanding to cutting. It's so lightweight and compact that it can fit just about anywhere and because there are so many different bit options its versatility is off the charts.

Ryobi has recently gotten into the fray with what looks to be a very impressive set. Their 229 Piece Rotary Tool Kit has so many accessories and extra bits that it appears to be the pinnacle of one-stop shopping. It even comes with a telescoping stand and a 36" flex shaft. At 1.2 amps, it's up so some pretty heavy-duty work, and the case alone looks like a feat of organizational engineering.

We are very interested in this tool. If it works as good as it looks, it could be a real bid at Dremel's absolute supremacy in the rotary tool arena.

According to Ryobi's website, the rotary tool can be purchased at Home Depot. We were unable to find it online, so it is possibly only available at the actual stores. It retails for $49.97.
