I use mine all the time. I use it for grinding and cuttng off stuff that my grinder is too big for. Sanding down stuff, etc, etc. It will probably get used less now that i got a die grinder, but the cordless feature rocks.

It is a good price, but I would not buy that.

For cutting and grinding, the handle is likely to get in your way. Having the regular, round style Dremel works great for getting into tight places, which is probably where you will be using it most.

My wife has the rechargable Dremel and prefers my corded Dremel because the battery life isn't all that great. Hers is a few years old, so that may have something to do with it, I haven't used it, so I can't be sure.

I had a cordless and didn't care for the battery life either.My corded one runs fine off a small inverter if the lead cord doesn't reach.
Also the corded has much more power than the cordless.

Moot point now. Sale is over as of midnight CST.

Thats the woot spirit, buy now before you think about it.

This is how i ended up with stacks of photo paper, boxes of sudoku hand helds, and a box of ear muffs.

I went with a corded one when I bought mine. It was cheaper, but also I know me and Dremels.. I'd rather have the constant power than running out of battery power..

That said, when I bought my drill, I went cordless.. But it also came with two batteries.. :)

I have used the dremel for many things its one of the best tools IMHO
its great with the cutoff wheels one time i took the rivets out of the chassis by slicing into the rivets with a dremel and then chopping off the pieces,, its great on construction sites and for cutting straps on pluming...
when my son was little i used to to shape his pinewood derby car
they are great for cleaning and polishing car parts and emblems
Ive used my dremel for cutting and shaping plastic and they are great if you build scale models...

the list is endless... i love my dremel and a wise investment is the bendable attachment that lets you operate it almost like a dental tool

Did not catch the sale you posted but you can get this non-Dremel for $60
http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=452377
Comes with both AC and battery machine
Since someone needed my Dremel at work more than I did I need a new one. But hey, they left me 2 boxes of paperclips for it. :(

Justin, if you are asking me I haven't bought it yet. I plan to. After buying my Dremel I found that I did not use as often as I thought I would. I have bought many things from Sportsmen Guide and they are great to do business with. If I got it and felt that it was junk I am sure they would work it out with me.
Check out their site they have lots of stuff.
