Craftsman 4.8 volt Cordless Rotary Tool Vs. Remington 1100

I recently bought a Remington 1100 LT-20 Skeet-T shotgun and it was in horrible condition! It had been in an open box in a dusty attic for better than 15 years when I finally got to it to rescue it! The previous owner had passed away and his wife asked one of her children to store it for her and he oiled it all down (quite heavily I might add) and stuck it up in her attic in an open box. Years worth of dust collected on the oil until it eventually dried out and turned into something an adobe brick. I'm talking stuff that could be used for brake lining for a semi! At any rate, I get the shotgun home and I didn't really have much in the way of polishing tools and I new I'd need something to get down into the little cracks and crevices that this gun sports. Places like where the barrel rib is attached and the threaded magazine tube cap, etc. I had all the small scrapers and toothpicks needed but I needed something to really bring out the bluing in the metal once I was done scraping. Bring on the 61078 cordless rotary tool! I completely disassembled the shotgun right down to the last nut and bolt and began the tedious process of cleaning it up. The rotary tool came in to play much sooner than I thought it would just getting a lot of that old dried oil of all the small parts it permeated through. The bolt carrier had enough of that junk to prevent it from ever operating like it should until I got after it with the rotary tool and a very fine polishing compound! Now it's as slick as greased owl snot on an ice cube! I worked my way all through the gun and then once it was finally thoroughly cleaned I started to polish the areas that still needed it and then deburred a few areas of concern around the shell carrier and the grooves inside the receiver making it all nice and smooth! I reassembled it lightly oiling it as I went and continued to polish those areas that still needed a bit and then, when I was finished took it to a gunsmith for a final checkup before I ever thought about hitting the range! Now, before I go on, I have to tell you that I did buy this shotgun sight unseen and I only paid a total of $50 ($25 for the shotgun and $25 for the transfer fee) from the son who oiled the devil out of it 15 years ago! It had been left to him when his mom passed away last year and he had no use for it. He knew what he was selling so don't blame me for making a sweet deal! The gunsmith took the 1100 in hand and went all through it making these 'Hmmm..." sounds as he went making me as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs! When he looked like he was done I asked if he thought it would be a good gun for the wife and what value it might have for insurance purposes. He asked me how I cleaned the gun since there was no warn bluing and no spots where the gun looked like it had ever had been polished and I told him what tools I used and how the rotary tool saved me on a couple of occasions. He offered to buy the gun for $850 right then and when I turned him down he told me it was easily worth that and maybe a bit more. The wife was thrilled with her new skeet gun! Thank you Craftsman!

Battery Issues

Very small, short, no power jobs is all its good for. Any pressure or power needed will put this back on the charger quickly. Spend a little more and get a bigger, corded model. The battery is the only problem with this tool but it's a big problem.

Small and mighty


I purchased this for indoor hobby use and couldn't be happier. It is ergonomically very nice to hold and isn't heavy. The battery lasts a good long time and charges quickly. It has nice controls and variable speeds as well. Couldn't ask for more out of this product. Price is excellent for what you get.

This is great for shaping and grinding small objects, plus there are many attachments that can be bought for it, no regrets here on this purchase.
