  • Smaller than a Bread Box...Big On Power.

    Feb 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, lightweight, easy to use, more than adequate power for household jobs.
    Cons: none whatsoever......unless you're trying to build a house with it : )

    Summary: My husband and I tool junkies. If it's new and improved....we simply have to have it!! I have to admit, when the whole Versa-Pak line came out, I was very skeptical. How could something that runs on such a small battery be good for anything? And why ... read more

  • For All Those Little Odd Jobs

    Jan 13, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great accessory selection, compatibility with other tools' accessories.
    Cons: Batteries wear out quickly.

    Summary: I picked this item up because I could think of a million uses for it, and Menards had the 63-piece kit on sale for only US$20. At that price, even if it didn't work real well, it would still be worth it. So I got it home and charged up, and ... read more

  • Great Cordless Companion for Toolbox

    Mar 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: More convenient that a corded tool.
    Cons: Batteries will not last during extended use.

    Summary: I have had the VP940(T) for three months and have used it four times so far. Very simple to use with speeds close to my corded tool. I love the ease of use so much that I use it before going to my corded one. The only problem you may encounter is ... read more

  • Not as heavy duty as advertised

    Oct 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good ergonomics, cordless
    Cons: short battery life, light duty tool

    Summary: I was an aircraft sheetmetal mechanic. I used to work in a shop where we did very heavy airframe modifications and I thought this cordless tool would be ideal and be a big asset to my tools. Frankly it did save my a** a couple times and did save some ... read more

  • Go with the corded model

    Oct 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Relatively cheap, Small, Light, Maneuverable, Nice assortment of attachments, VersaPak can be used with other tools
    Cons: Goes through batteries very quickly, not as powerful as Corded model, Expensive in regular retail stores

    Summary: I was at a Black and Decker outlet store over the summer, and I saw a display of the B & D Cordless Rotary tool kit, on sale for $24.95. Since I already owned the corded model and used it pretty much on a daily basis, and since I had seen the same ... read more

  • Wizard - Well Named

    Jun 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, versitile
    Cons: Batteries run out of power, cost of attachments

    Summary: Being a "gadget" addict, I felt had to have a rotary tool. Since I had no specific use in mind for one, I opted for the lower-priced Black & Decker Wizard. I also opted for the cordless model since I liked the freedom of not being ... read more

  • good power for the size

    May 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: small
    Cons: battery runs out

    Summary: This Black & Decker Versapak Wizard Cordless Rotary Tool is great for the tight fitting and small jobs around the house. It takes and versapak battery that can be recharged in about 8 hours. This tool is very compact but after about 45 minutes of ... read more

  • This wizard really can do magic

    Jan 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very useful
    Cons: Needs more power

    Summary: I have had my wizard for a little over a year now and have found may uses for it. There are so many jobs this little tool can take care of from cleaning golf clubs after a day on a wet course to cutting a pad lock that you have some how lose the key to. ... read more

  • Household savior

    Jan 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Goes anywhere, fits anywhere, does EVERYTHING!
    Cons: It's cordless, so obviously it has to be recharged!

    Summary: I'm a homeowner that's found a thousand uses for this little dynamo. Beyond that, there's a harpwright in the household who swears by it for lots of little jobs in the course of building harps. We've used this to help with window sashes, kitchen ... read more

  • Great tool for any little projects.

    Jan 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, comfortable, tool for light duty jobs.
    Cons: Light duty battery.

    Summary: I am continually looking for tools to make the projects I do during my free time. I have used and own the Dremel, but love the idea of having a multi-use tool that use the same accessories. The Black & Decker versa pack is just that tool. You can ... read more

  • No Power

    Dec 26, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Portable, changeable power
    Cons: loses power easily

    Summary: I bought this little tool because I didn't want to spend the big money on the Dremel tool (which I ended up getting anyway and am pleased with it). I liked the small and compact design of the wizard, but other factors changed my mind on keeping it. I was ... read more

  • Stick with the cord..

    Dec 16, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheaper,Lighter
    Cons: Pack does not last long

    Summary: I have had the Wizard for only 3 months and I have one word for it "USELESS". Sure you can take it and use it anywhere but unless you have about 4 extra FULLY charged packs your job can end up taking you alot longer than planned. I ... read more

    Pros: Fast, light, cheap, easy to find batteries, takes normal generic rotary tool bits.
    Cons: It's not a powerhouse. Go corded wizard for heavy work.

    Summary: The first reviewer was reviewing a cordless screwdriver! And that's what the picture is. A Black & Decker VP940 is a little cordless 18,000 RPM rotary tool. I use mine for building radio control airplanes. I've also got it's larger corded 35,000 RPM ... read more
