I'm looking at purchasing a rechargable Dremel moto-tool, and was wondering which one would be most suited for modelling. My local Walmart has two types available a 4.8 volt and a 7.2 volt, Which one do you gentlemen use if any? Thanks in advance for your help, Joel.

works great.  It's pretty much useless on metal, though, for that I have a plug-in model.

butt, since they are always needing to be recharged. That is my experience.

My local Canadian Tire had a knock-off version which plugs into the wall socket, and has variable speeds and a good supply of tools to go with it. It works just fine for my plastic needs.

my Dremel



Whether I am polishing NMF's



Grinding



Trimming PE



Or stirring paint in the jar



It has the necessary snorts when you really need to tear away at stuff or the delicate touch when you need a subtle touch.

The rechargeable ones are ok at first but the battery wears down fast. The Dremel 3000 series is nice but the one I have didn't have many attachments. Aside from that, it's much better than the rechargeable one my dad has. The 3000 is a variable speed and has a wrench integrated in the chuck cap to allow for quick change of bits.

but I keep an extra battery on-hand and charging. When one runs out, just swap it for the charged one. It ain't rocket science.

I'm not really a pompous ***; I just play one on HyperScale!
