Hi.  I am thinking of buying my first Dremel that will I imagine mostly be used with the Flex Shaft.  Is it worth getting the 4200 over the 4000 given I have read reports that some of the accessories and tools don't fit it and will give me no benefit for quick change when used with the flex shaft anyway?  Am I better off just getting the 4000?

Hello, just answering your question in regards to the 4000 VS the 4200.  Both tools basically are the same except on the 4200 you have the "EZ Change".  Both will accept the same attachments.  The one concern with the 4200 though is that I don't have enough collets to accommodate all of the bits that we make, such as the drill bits.  You can not put a Dremel chuck #4486 on the 4200 neither. So, basically, if you are wanting to stick to the standard 1/8" shank size accessories that we have, then the 4200 will allow this.  Otherwise, if you are looking to purchase various sizes of shanks (that would accommodate the Dremel Chuck - meaning a 1/32" - 1/8" size), then you should buy the 4000 instead.

Should you have any further questions, please contact us again, or feel free to call our Dremel Customer Service Department on our toll free phone number of 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.

I hope the "EZ Change" system is not going to entirely replace the "traditional" collets. Once this happens it will be a change of brand to Proxxon.

I can't stand companies who go off on a different direction and expect everyone to update so that the latest attachments only fit the newest design.

Dremel won't do that, will they........

From what I have read so far, the 4200 EZ Change system is disliked by many users, preferring the 4000 over it.

The 395VX is my favourite, I even named my ID after it.
