Thanks for the info on the black & decker model, I found it at target for $60 bucks, I'll probably just go that route when the time comes. Thanks again for all the info!!

Joe.

On the B&D model. I picked mine up being cheap at Home Depot. Was around $35 at the time I think...full variable speed, not this 3 speed stuff. I needed one at the time and didn't see a need to spend tons on it. Turns out to be quite the trooper.

Randman mentioned he liked a couple of things better than his dremel. They are that it has a flip up lock for when you change bits. It'* nice...the button thing works for most though.

As for the smoking.... my tools take a certain amount of abuse. Those that can't handle it or be returned for free replacement...well....I replace them with ones that will.

I love my rotozip...it'* the fancy one they don't make anymore with the trigger handle and variable speed (the Revolution I think). next to my blowtorch and miter saw it'* my favorite tool for home repair. it'* been my impression that dremels are more for "delicate" things whereas my rotozip with it'* faster rpm'* and more torque is better suited to "not so delicate" work. both can be used for detail work and both have all sorts of attachments now to use as drill presses and sabre saws. IF clearing your head/tail lights is the only thing you'll use it for, grab a cheap dremel. as soon as i got my rotozip though i started finding all sorts of things to use it on...so keep that in mind.
