Is your dremel too hot?

  Have you felt that your tool is burning your hand?

Have a tip : Use a glove. In order to get the best performance , you need longer sessions, as the rotary tool`has no handle as other tools, your hand grabs the motor and that might heat your hands, making the job harder.

Also make sure not to cover the exhaust vents as you work.

This seems to work quite well! At least in my case. Hehe

Its a good idea to wear gloves for hand protection, but not to hold the tool because it gets too hot. Heat will reduce the life of the bearing and potentially the multi-speed switch can fail due to high ambient temp. Either the job is too big, the Dremel poorly ventilated, or the job site is too hot. Too hot to touch is about 50C or 122F. If you rest the tool when it overheats, you'll get more life out of the motor.
