Dremel tools are awesome.  I cant count the times that I have used one to complete a project.
Link Posted: 12/28/2002 11:09:26 PM EDT
I use mine for something on just about all the hobbies that I have.  Cars, guns, computers, etc, etc.  Not even to mention actual work around the house.  They are good for just about everything I can think of, lol.

There is a wide range... Ive seen them anywhere between 39.99 up to 100.00

just depends on the accessories you get with it... I got the variable speed with a bunch of cutting, grinding, polishing, cutting and drill bits for 39.99

The one thing I miss is the wire brush wheel...going to Home Depot tomorrow and buying a few.

I got the 9.6v cordless at Home Depot for $59.

Owning a Dremel is a sober responsibility, use it wisely.  (In other words, you can really screw up a firearm with one if you get carried away!!)

I just replaced my old Dremel, which just plain wore out.  I bought it in 1969!

Probably over 90% of the time I’m using it, I’m using the cut off disks.  They’re great.

Here’s the new one I got from Home Depot (assuming the link will work!):

Edited to add that the link won't work!

If your interested, go to [url]www.homedepot.com[/url], go to the tool section, do a search after checking the “SKU” radio button, and search for 755028

199 You are such the DICK!

Why the hell did you post the link for all the dremel accessories! Now you made my wife mad because I have to spend more money now.

I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY [;)]

199, before you toss the old Dremel check it to make sure you don't just new brushes in it.mine is 4 years old and I had to change them once. I use it a lot!

Got one for Christmas, good bit of gear.

Simply explain all the wonderful things you can do [b]for her[/b] with those accessories and how in the long run you’ll actually be saving all sorts of money.

Of course, she’s probably heard all that from you before!  [:D]

Thanks for the suggestion.  However, I’ve changed the brushes several times.  I’m pretty sure the bearings were shot.  Again, this thing was 33 years old (and “rode hard and put up wet”).

Crap.

Hey!  "Doc Watson" is a renowned, blind, flat-picker, and lost his son who performed with him.  Go easy!  He has nothing to do with Doctor Watson.

You need two. One regular, one cordless.

So true!

My only complaint is that the direction of rotation is not switchable.  THAT would be nice.
As it is now, I must hold the Dremel in my left hand because if I grasp it with my right hand, grinding/sanding debris flys into my face.
Anybody got a fix?

Have you bought a cordless drill yet? I like the Dewalt 12volt.

gotta love the dremel.....after coming to the conclusion that I NEEDED one about a year ago, I've used it on too many things to count.

Only complaint I've got -- the darned thing spins the wrong way for right-handed people when using the cutoff disks (alwasy throws sparks/dust/particles right in my face) but it has to in order to use drill bits [:(]  Someone should invent a dremel-type tool with a "foward" AND a "reverse" mode -- that would kick A$$.....unfortunately, I don't know enough about that to do it without those pesky patent infrengments.....so if anyone wants to, go ahead, just send me a free one [:D]
