Variable and Powerful Motor

The Wen 2305 is easy to use and packed with multiple features. It has variable speeds from 8,000 to 30,000 RPM and is versatile enough for sanding, engraving, grinding, and cutting. That range allows you to use it for a variety of purposes. The jobs require different speeds, so a wide range is good.

Discs and bits

One of the advantages of 2305 is that it comes with more discs and bits for different tasks and projects. The rotary tool is versatile enough for steel, wood, plastic, glass, and other materials. Wen 2305 has a 1-year warranty, and with this tool, you can cut through glue, wire, wood, plastics, and other materials.

Flex shaft

The flex shaft rotary tools allow you to reach hard-to-reach places and make you more accurate. Working with a rotary tool can be difficult to lug around. A flexible shaft rotary tool like the WEN 2305 also has many accessories. It comes with 80 accessories, a Flex shaft included with a carry case provided, and a Bit-Changing spanner wrench.

The optional flex shaft upgrade features a three-and-a-half-foot extension for the WEN Rotary Tool. Attach one end of the shaft to the rotary tool and the other to the desired accessory for precise and flexible operation.

Spindle Lock

Due to its multiple accessories, you have many choices regarding bit heads. WEN 2305  features a spindle lock. 

That allows it to change bit heads easily, though it still takes time. The spindle lock allows you to swap out tools quickly, and the carrying case can bring the WEN tool anywhere comfortably.

A Solid Carrying Case

One of the advantages of the WEN 2305 is its solid carrying case. The carrying case makes it easy to carry all the accessories and the tool itself, keeping your accessories in one place and making it easy to locate any Dremel accessory.

Speed variance dial

The variable speed dial is near the bottom of the rotary tool. Users alter the tool speed on the fly while it is in use. The sizeable variable speed range means that the WEN tool is for different applications, including sanding at high speeds and polishing and lower ones.



The tool has a 1 amp motor with speeds of between 5000 rpm and 30000 rpm.

Dust collection 

A spindle lock is for quickly changing bits. Mandrels, polishing pads, and sanding discs make it easier to do tasks.  Wen 2305 is ideal for getting rid of rust. While designed for various DIY tasks, it is also light enough to trim your dog’s toenails. The WEN tool is also suitable for engraving and carving objects.


The lightweight build makes intricate designs easy to complete, allowing you to carve small and complex designs into glass, plastic, wood, and steel. 2305 is a portable tool that weighs 3.4 pounds. That makes it handy since you have to hold the WEN tool in one hand while working.

Accessories  and storage

The WEN 2305 rotary tool package includes a variety of accessories found with the WEN 2307 Rotary Tool with two additional features. A handy carrying case comes with a flex shaft for maximum comfort and control during operation. 

The hard plastic case protects and organizes your tool, accessories, and attachments. It has a flex shaft to create intricate patterns and reach tight spots and corners.

The flex shaft prevents users from holding the rotary tool. Attach the preferred bit to the end of the flex shaft for a rotary tool experience that limits vibration and maximizes reach and control. That makes it ideal for projects requiring intricate design work or accessing tight places. It comes with a locked spindle collet for easy bit changes.


It is hard to find another rotary tool this affordable. It has value for the money. The price does not change with or without the flex shaft.


The overall quality is for the price. The flex shaft and variable speed control made it a popular tool. 


As a bonus, the tool is compatible with Dremel bits and accessories. Bits are changed easily via the onboard spindle lock, and the bits in this kit can be used for drilling, grinding, shaping, cutting, sanding, and polishing.


 2305 comes in four styles: with the shaft, without the shaft, cordless,  with a 228-piece accessory kit, or a 30-piece burr. The flex shaft is for tasks that need precision and detail.

The verdict

If you are looking for a lower-budget beginner model that still offers versatility, you may as well try the WEN 2305. This rotary tool has variable speeds from 8,000 to 30,000 RPMs. All you have to do is adjust the speed by turning a knob. The  WEN tool runs endless cutting, engraving, grinding, and sanding activities. That makes it ideal for DIYers and hobbyists in the market. The Wen 2305 is affordable but still a high-performing model.
