    Ive had two Dremel power tools over five or six years and have had the same problem with them both, in that the switch / speed adjuster stops working.
    Both have had little use if im honest.
    Has anyone else experienced this. Im now looking to replace these again.
    Any reccomenations other than Dremel!

    The switch/speed control is just a trim pot so a bit of contact spray should do the trick.
    Unless you've dropped it and broken the trim pot?
    In any case it's a really cheap part to replace.
