Don't know where I'd be without my dremel.
Stay away from the battery-powered versions, though. Corded is a must.

Also consider going to Harbor Freight or Northern Tool and buying the big, cheap "rotory tool accessory kits" for the dremel.

I recently bought a new arbor for mine at Grainger. While I was there, the clerk was talking to me about bits. He had a dentist friend that would supply him with "dental grade" bits for his Dremel. Said that they were much stronger than ordinary Dremel bits. Anyone ever heard such a thing?

:-D

I used hand tools before I had a dremel. When I got the dremel, I just got faster and cleaner in my work.

Dremels take practice and common sense. Go to harbor freight and buy the 25$ dremel to learn on. Their bits kits aren't bad for the money.

I actually super charged the one dremel for Slotting brass at 48,000 RPM. ...Like a knife through butter.

Thumbs up

Dremels work wonders for sure & I've got a cordless one at work for minor clean-up & detail work.
But I got spoiled on the Foredoms for production work & the torque required for the large carbide bits.
These are basically a Dremel on steroids.

Woah. That's fantastic! I have a rotozip, but it's bulky and can't get into tight spots.
