when I finish using the tool, a cat of grease is between my thumb & forefinger. The handle shows no indication of a leak. I've had the tool since day one of being on the market. I'm not sure how to take the handle apart to check for a gasket or ?.... What do you suggest, returning it to Dremel would be many $ due to it's weight.

SAFETY FIRST, NOW TURN ON THE TOOL

Hello - sorry to hear you are having some concern with your FortiFlex.  There is grease on the inside of this (internal cable) and before you go to use it, you should just let it run a bit.  If you find there is excessive grease dispensing from it, then I would suggest you get it into Dremel to be looked at.  This product has a "2 Year Manufactured Warranty" on it.  For more information on how to send something into us, please refer to the back page of your Owners Manual or call our Dremel Customer Service, toll free phone number:  1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.
