[MICRO-ERGONOMIC DESIGN] All MAKERX tools are specially designed to be compact, so they’re more comfortable to hold for long stretches, and are easier to maneuver

    The Maker X arrived before Christmas and the timing couldn’t have been any better. With winter starting, we were looking for a way to engage everyone in our family with hands-on projects that we could all work on together. Maker X totally delivered. The versatility of the Maker X really sets this tool system apart from other hobby tools I’ve used in the past. Here are a few of the things that stand so far – the fine detailing of the air brush attachment, the precision of the high speed rotor, and it’s easy maneuverability in tight crevices and corners and the battery Sharing: We’ve got a few Worx tools now and so having one battery work across every tool, and now the Maker X, as well, is a great advantage because you never run out of juice. Even if someone uses it for the afternoon and forgets to recharge the battery. There’s always a spare, charged and ready to go.

    Bought this set for small woodworking projects. The battery lasted much longer than I expected! The temperature controls are really useful and intuitive. The angle grinder works great and has a nice handle for control. Great product!

  3. Amazon Customer

    This tool kit is awesome for many different projects I am working on. The rotary tool is so useful for sanding small areas because it is so slender and easy to hold. The battery provides plenty of power to the tool with an adjustable knob. Very fine adjustments can be made with this tool. The angle grinder is also a very nice size and comes with multiple blades. Great for cutting pipe. All motors are brushless.All these tools work with the typical Worx batteries and the charge lasts very long. This is a great combo set to use on lots of projects!

    I grabbed the Makerx rotary tool and soldering iron pack while looking for a replacement rotary tool, and I am writing this about 6 months after my purchase, as I am well aware of how the initial period after a new purchase of a cool tool can induce a short period of fan-boy syndrome, before acknowledging a host of glaringly obvious issues. However, I am glad to say that I am still using the Makerx system daily. So, the best parts.. First is it is incredibly light and thin, which is a bonus compared to some of the other lower-cost rotary tools that are almost unwieldy. The speed is 100% constant as long as you don’t overuse the tool and apply too much torque, which is standard with most rotary tools and helps to prevent rapidly broken fingers and wrists, this is a precision tool and not to be used in place of a large craftsmen or Makita Drill or an actual drill press. The biggest thing I love about this is that it is whisper quiet, and I have used it many times at 3:00 AM in my small studio apartment where a normal conversation can keep the neighbors awake. While some other rotary tools do have similar features, such as the WEN cordless rotary tool, which is powered by a 4.2v Lithium Ion Battery, the Makerx is powered by a 20v battery with the same power as any other power-tool interchangeable battery, giving the Makerx Immensely more power, RPM, and battery life.In terms oif the Soldering Iron, this has become my standard daily use soldering iron. I also have 2 TS80 Smart soldering irons and a dedicated soldering station. Prior to this, the $100+ TS80 was my main soldering iron, but the Makerx has since surpassed it. It heats up just as fast, keeps the heat, and cools off very fast, has built in temp display and control on the iron, and it works. I can go through tips fast, but the original tip is still perfect on this Sure, I can’t play pacman on it or program a boost temp for when I solder things with higher heat-loss properties, but that’s really not needed. I turn it on and solder.. that is it. Both devices give me the performance and power of a standard power tool, but while being very portable.As far as the negatives, and everything has a negative.. I noticed the Rotary tool had a tendency of catching the built in chuck, especially when I pushed it beyond it’s torque capability. I don’t know if this is a specific issue with my unit, or all of them. However, as a Maker, I prefer doing my own repairs, and the Makerx makes this incredibly easy. They have no screws. You unscrew the top and bottom rings and the rotary tool separates easily into little easily replaceable modules. It is neat just to take a look at it to see the little details that went into the engineering of this. I believe the spring wasn’t as strong as it should have been, but I ended up removing the chuck, as it is just as easy to use a any nearby item as the key, and it completely removes the chance of an issue. Other than that, you can’t use this without a battery. So, if you only have one battery, when it dies, you aren’t using these until it is recharged, which is fairly quick, but having the ability to use wall power is a large annoyance at times. However… I do realize that building the power and battery charger into the power hub would add significant size, mass, and most likely cost. So like all awesome tools, we have to deal with a few annoyances for improvements.As far as the soldering iron goes, I have no negatives to report, other than I wish they included a hot-knife blade, but yes, I did buy one….. and that just demonstrates how useful this is.

    I absolutely love this tool set. I originally bought it for the soldering capability (which worked awesome), but fell in love with the angle grinder attachment. I needed to shorten some PVC pipe, and the angle grinder was able to cut through it like a hot knife in butter. All of the attachments are so incredibly light and also quiet – the brushless tech that Worx has been incorporating is really a game changer.I always have my Worx batteries charged up as I have some other Worx tools, and I have no doubt that I’ll be using this nifty combo set around the house in the future.

    always wanted a dremel, never got it, kinda like that clear car engine that was wanted when a kid. This Worx helped to fill that gap in my psyche. i used on my weird toenail and i am now healed(maybe will try on heal next…). nice feature to have the battery separate, that way the tool is easier held for finer projects(like toenails). Also, can run other tools with the same cord and battery hook up. very clever and the Worx works well.Note: also cut off a long screw sticking into my drawer from the handle. its a heavy drawer and strong screw.

  7. HEMI

    I liked how portable and free you are in taking your crafts anywhere you want to without a power outlet. I like hiw they feel, each one has a feel of quality made tools and i like that! I have bought other lawn a gardening tools from worx and im telling you, they work excellent and the battery power supply is amazing 5 stars 🌟 i bought the whole crafting set! Everything!!!😁

  8. Amazon Customer

    I love this entire kit! It came packaged beautifully with all of the individual tools already nestled in the tool bag. I’m a stickler for organization, so I really appreciate that it includes a box for all of the small accessories too. It’s amazing that I don’t have to compromise a variety of tools for space. I’m looking forward to expanding my collection and buying all of the attachments Worx creates for Maker X.The entire system is lightweight, but feels solid and high-quality. It’s perfectly portable for projects at home or on the go. It’s also surprisingly quiet! I’m excited to be able to use the airbrush without all of the noise of an air compressor. It’s nice that if I forget to charge the battery for the hub, I can just grab one off another one of my Worx tools. Every Maker’s dream!

    Loving my new makerX tools! I don’t have a ton of experience with ‘power tools’ and these are extremely user-friendly! I love how I can use the 20V battery with all of my MakerX tools (also purchased the heat gun for wood crafts and embossing). They are very easy to use on a table top without needing the battery plugged in, after it’s charged!I have started using the rotary tool for embossing/etching projects, but with 45 accessories I am excited to use this for polishing, sanding, and so much more! My project seen above is a floral etching on a glass jar, I love how the handheld tool has a pencil like grip — makes for an easy learning curve for artists!!Since tools and crafting supplies are hard to keep organized, I love that this came with a nice bag to store all the items in one spot. Also makes these easy to transport if you need them on site, etc! Highly recommend!

    I got this tool set to explore my creative side with the cold days coming. I opened the box and was a little overwhelmed with all the attachments. I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the shop and just started playing with all the tools and attachments. A couple hours passed before I knew it and my scrap wood looks like a piece of art. I was able to write on it, drill holes in it, shape the edges and burn awesome patterns and designs into it. There are still attachments that I haven’t used yet but these tools are very cool. Now I have a ton of ideas and other creations I want to tackle.
