Thumbs up Key hand tool!!

They are sweet!! The keyless chuck attachment is nice too, works great for drilling small holes in alum.

Let's see...

2 dremmels, flex shaft attachment, 9 grinding stones/wheels, 3 cut-off wheels, 5 polishers, 6 carving/engraving bits, router attachment, drill press attachment, etc...



Needless to say, I use mine a lot. My wife probably uses it more than me though. The drill press attachment is hers. All the engraver/cutter bits are excellent for shaving plastic, the polishing heads are used for jewelry, and all of the above I use for odds and ends gunsmithing tasks. Some of the polishing heads are especially well suited for polishing feed ramps on Colt .45's....

If you are gonna buy one dont waste your time on a cordless one in my own opinion mine only lasts for like 10 or 15 minutes most of the time it dies when im almost done.

I agree. I have two cordless and two corded. By far, I use the corded ones more often. I use the cordless when I want to work on something in the warmth of the dining room!

The reinforced cut-off wheel is my #1, followed by a grinding bit.
