Could be as simple as replacing the brushes. Have you looked at them??

The Dremel site doesn't list an "m80"

Which one is it??

Time for small tool repair 101. Open it up and check the brushes, then see if it turns at all. Frozen? Probably bearings overheated (you maniac) and froze up. While Dremel is a good brand, those things weren't really designed for industrial duty. That'* what they make the remote motor driven hand tools for.

If your Dremel is not too old, contact them for warranty info.

I can still spin it by hand but it makes a nice clicking/grinding sound.

I guess in the next couple of days I will crack it open and explore what I destroyed

its cooled down and still doesn't turn.

Was it smoking iike mine?

If you have to replace it.....I've noticed there are many things about myBlack and Decker RTX that seem better than the dremels. and it was much cheaper.

For example when Rob was here..smoke was pouring out of my dremel(more than once)...I let it cool and it'* still good. Used it on all kinds of industrial type stuff with the games and cars...it'* never let me down at all.
