I was recently sent a bizarre new tool from Dremel called the Versa that appears to be a cleaning tool. It’s not often I’m in need of a cleaning tool, but let’s open this thing up to see how it works.
When I opened the package I was more curious than anything how this thing worked. I noticed that it came with a bunch of different accessories, different types of pads, and accessories for cleaning various surfaces. It has a splashguard which is basically a rubber boot that goes over the cleaning wheel so while you use it you’re not kicking up a mess at yourself. You can essentially use this tool as a sander, or at least very similarly. The Versa is meant for cleaning different kinds of surfaces so between all the different accessory pads that it comes with, it will clean painted surfaces, fabrics, stainless steel, cast-iron, ceramic, porcelain, aluminum metal, plastic, laminate, glass, and you can use it for light paint and rust removal. With a 4 volt rating on this thing, my first impression is that it’s not going to be that powerful.
I have gotten to use this on different things. It does an okay job of cleaning as long as you don’t have a little bit of over spray from spray painting that you got on some glass or that you got on some metal or something. It works decently well however if you’ve got a thick stain or a thick coat of paint or something like that it’s going to be really hard to clean without changing the surface material to get any of that over spray off and being that it’s only 4 volts you can’t push very hard before this thing bogs down and becomes unusable.
For cleaning stoves, getting grease off of the stove top, off the counter top, that’s really what the tool does well. It cleans things that would otherwise be kind of a pain in the ass by hand. It allows rotary motion like a sanding wheel, and because it comes with different coarseness’s of pads, it allows you to be a little bit more abrasive, less abrasive, and ultimately really soft. It’s a pretty cool versatile tool, just in my opinion it’s really weak and it should have a little bit more “beefed-up” electrical specs so that it can handle really digging in to material like paint and on rough surfaces. Especially things that are a little bit toothier like some glass, stained glass – or something like that that’s not smooth but it’s got a little bit of a grip to it. It’s gonna be hard to clean stuff out of that because this Dremel tool is so weak and the strong resistance slows the tool down so much because you have to press so hard to get into all the cracks.
