    I have the harbor frieght copy of the foredom and it work pretty well for the price. I like having the speed control in a pedal. If I was going to do a lot of work I'd spring for the Foredom. I also have an ancient 2 speed dremel that I've had for about 15 years that I'm on the 3rd set of brushes.

    Default Breaking news from Black and Decker

    I love my multispeed Dremel. My kids gave me a set for Christmas a few years ago. It came with a case and a battery operated portable two speed Dremel too.

    Last weekend at the Punkin Chunkin festival in Delaware, I hit the Black and Decker outlet. They had a pile of $25 three speed RTX, their version of the Dremel. It came with a nice case and some accessories including a rotobit for cutting electrical outlet holes in drywall. It also included a removable stand with adjustments.

    The stand is like Sang's great top rail Dremel jig but the bit will not extend beyond the stand base. I'll try it as a poor man's top rail grinder and see.

    For $25 it's worth it as a second Dremel.

    If you have a B&D outlet near you, you may want to investigate.
