    I'd like to get a dremel. Any suggestions on type or model? Do you prefer corded or cordless?

    I'm initially getting it for fragging but I'm sure I'll find plenty of other uses.
     
  2. I like the dremel tool kit, http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&productId=100647083&N=10000003+90401+502104

    The flexible extension is what i use to frag, it keeps the cutting wheel away from the motor and main collet, if it gets a little sticky, I just lube the coil inside, just pull it out and do it.

    Some get the cordless one, but I for one liked the kit, because it came with the grout remover, circle cutter etc....Plus I have a tendency to forget to recharge my cordless tools, so when i need to use them, I pull the trigger and get poof!

    I have a corded one but wish I got a cordless.
     
  4. get the flexible extension, you will be very happy with it, its so light compared to the dremel tool body, so it's easier to use.

    I got this one last year, never had a problem with it. Strong as all hell for what I use it for. Notching plexi, cutting screw heads off, etc... If your thinking of cordless I would definitely get this one, don't want to limit yourself with the weaker of the two.

    and never ever try a diamond bandsaw. Once you do, you will never ever touch a dremel again if at all possible, for fragging coral :p

    I have a cordless and it's been awesome. I use the cutting wheel attachment and find that the battery actually lasts a pretty long time. You do need to charge it though if you use it infrequently...
     
  8. yeah after seeing Ian frag the Scoly, I was impressed in the ease, how clean it was, not throwing coral funk in the air, and how small it was. Definitely a must have if you frag a lot.

    I got this one at Walmart. Decent for the price.

    High speed is good for diamond wheels. Diamond wheels are super cheap from Harbor Freight.

    Between a tile saw, rotary tool, and a diamond bandsaw, you're all set :)

    I have the cordless 10V version and use it w/a 1.5" diamond wheel. Cuts through pretty easy if the piece isn't ultra thick.
