    Agreed they have pretty pisspoor battery life and have no power, either. They just...suck.

    I`d say Never give UP. What is one disaster compared to a beautiful mod?

    Um, you're building a case from scratch using a dremel? That would take forever.

    Get some better tools and you'll have fewer problems.
    I recommend
    + Jigsaw
    + Table Saw
    + Power sander
    + Drillpress

    Or just get another plain wired one and do a bit of modding :D


    But yea I have found that dremels(multi-tools) are a bit unreliable. Did you buy actual dremel branded ones ? Because I bought a crappy B&Q one which didn't fit togethor with the flexible arm and I used it without it justing with the fixed blade and it broke, so went straight back. Then I bought a Draper one and after a couple of hours use the first weekend, it broke so I sent it back and got a replacement and have used that for a few hours and it seems ok.
    I thinkt he actual dremel brand ones look quite reliable but they do cost alot :sigh:

    oh, and as said above, I think maybe you have a bit too much faith in the flexibility of the dremel. to make a case I am pretty sure you are going to want a jigsaw, anless its some kind of very unconventional case :worried:

    Where you located? If your in the US go to Sears and get a craftsman branded rotary (its a rebadged dremel) This way you can bring it back to ANY sears ANY time for a replacement. Craftsman has a lifetime warranty no questions asked.

    ok i sort of forgot that i had left this open i have'nt given up but i have gone and got myself a new jigsaw, hammer drill and finishing sander still have yet to get a new dremel but th GF insisted on going and buying an Icute case anyway so i have to wait until i get a new system which should be by friday any luck before i start modding another case :) but seeing as this one will be all mine any ideas on what i should do to it at presents either a full tower a base unit, a pentium tower that looks like a set of steps or another midi tower. (i have a lot of towers around my local boot fair tends to have some one selling them for a fiver so i buy them just to rip apart :)
