Plan Your Dremel Pinewood Derby® Days Demo at Lowe's

The 2015 Dremel Pinewood Derby® Days Program, brought to you through Lowe's Home Improvement Stores, aims to provide you, the Pinewood Derby® enthusiast, with a source for all of the materials and know-how you need to create a winning Pinewood Derby® car you can be proud of – regardless of your skill level.


Starting in mid-January and running through mid-February, your local Lowe's store will be hosting Pinewood Derby® car clinics to share their tips and tricks for making the fastest cars on race day.


   Everyone who attends an event will be given a:


  •  How-to demonstration

  •  Step-by-step instructions for building your car at home

  •  Pinewood Derby® Days patch

  •  10% off Dremel coupon, which can be applied to

      your entire Dremel purchase (tools, accessories

      and attachments)


Please see the calendar for dates and times of all the clinics & give your store a call prior to attending an event to verify one is taking place.


Dremel and Lowe's are committed to making your Pinewood Derby® race day a success! If you need any help with Dremel products during your derby construction project, don’t hesitate to give the Dremel Experts a call (1-800-4-Dremel) – in fact, you can consider them your Pinewood Derby® "pit crew!"



Every great car build starts with some extensive thinking in the design phase before the first piece of sheet metal (or block of pine, in this case) begins to take shape.


With the help of this advanced drafting system, you can now design like the pros!

Tools To Use

Pit Tool Profiles:


In stock car racing, pit crews are limited to two wrenches, one jack and two gas cans.


In Dremel-empowered derby car racing, you have a few more options. With over 10 tools, more than 20 attachments and no fewer than 150 accessories available from the Dremel brand, you should have everything you need to develop your car and support it on race day.

 Pinewood Derby® Car Project Kit 691-01 • Derby Car Modeling Accessory Kit

Kit includes the shaping and finishing accessories you need for a fast car and a fast build. As a bonus receive this year's Pinewood Derby® Days Patch.


 The "Dragster"

Running either at idle or at full-out top speed, the Dremel 200 Series is undoubtedly the dragster of rotary tools – perfect for prep work running up to your pinewood drag race. Capable of powering most Dremel accessories and attachments, the 200 Series is an exceedingly versatile tool. If, however, you are looking for superior versatility and handling, you should consider stepping up to the Dremel 3000 or Dremel 4000 tools – just as you'd step up from a dragster to race at LeMans.

The Dremel 200 Series • Two-Speed Rotary Tool
 The "Pit Crew Chief"

Capable of handling any rotary tool job you throw in its direction, this may not be the most seasoned member of our pit crew, but it is certainly the burliest and most talented. It's like a small-block V8 – able to power anything and do a good job of it.

The Dremel 4000 Series • High-Performance Rotary Tool
 The "Rally Racer"

The newest member of our pit crew is Brilliantly Powerful, the Dremel Micro is the perfect combination of size, ergonomics and power that make it the rally tool for both precise and light duty tasks. The Dremel Micro has LED running lights built uniquely into the nose cap to aid in vision and accuracy. The Dremel Micro features lights that indicate battery level, Li-on battery technology, and a docking station that automatically stops charging when the batteries have reached capacity.

The Dremel 8050 Micro • Variable Speed Rotary Tool
 The "PolE-Sitter"

When paired with a sanding pad and paper, this tool is perfect for transforming your Pinewood Derby® block into your Pinewood Derby® car. While the Multi-Max is great for sanding, you’ll probably want to keep a rotary tool handy for detail work

The Dremel Multi-Max MM20 • Oscillating Tool

An EZ Twist nose cap wrench, EZ Lock mandrel, and EZ Lock cut-off wheels are part of this 160-piece kit filled with genuine Dremel accessories. Offering reusable storage bins and lift-out trays for easy organization of the included bits, this kit is ready for cutting, grinding, polishing, sanding, cleaning and more. The kit also includes sanding bands, sandpaper discs, polishing compound, felt polishing wheels, aluminum oxide grinding stones, silicon carbide grinding stone, mandrels, wire brush, wrench, and a reusable carrying case with clear lid.
