    Agreed. Generic "Dremel-type rotary tools" just don't do the same job. Get the real one :)

    Yeah, get the real thing. I cheaped out on my first one and bought something similar to your link for my first. It lasted about two hours. Luckily, the store took it back and I got a deal on a real Dremel for my trouble.

    i bought a Black and decker dremel clone for 35 quid the other week in B&Q, only a few k less rpm (but the 6 speed as opposed to 2 speed on the basic dremel) i've been cutting like no tomorrow and its been a pleasure to use.

    Unlike most of the Dremel knockoffs the B&D RTX is a nice tool. I used one a while back on a non-modding related project and it worked like a charm.
