Just bought a Dremel 300 series. Great tool let down by really poor tool box. Looked okay from the outside but after opening and seeing the layout, its quite useless. Thinking about the money and the effort to design it I would go and ask the designer for my money back.
For instance, why the huge handle and gap for carrying? There isn't a lead brick inside. More inner space could be achieved by reducing the handle dimensions and associated hand space.
My natural instinct is to open the box with the bigger half upper most. It looks like some kind of stacking feature?
Inside-why the poor layout? I struggled trying to pack the tool away-I'm talking about the lead and plug here.
In the upper half why not remove all that unnecessary volume and allow a larger hinged fitment box. Make the handbook 2/3 size and it can fit neatly next to it instead of having to jam it in to the bottom?
Lower half carrying the (very good) Dremel. Wasted space. Could have designed it more wisely.
In fact looking over it all the hinge doesn't look as if its going to last long so really its a waste of money so to sum up;
Sell the Dremel in a cardboard box, Sell the tools in the selection kits; 25, 50 etc. and finally, sell some decent boxes to hold everything say in starter, intermediate and expert classes.
I'll probably throw away the box soon and relace it with something better, which isn't going to help global warming is it?
