What's the best Dremel for my project?

I'm baaaaaack!

But, nobody probably noticed. After about a year of school (and, frankly, procrastination) I have decided to continue my project.

That said, what's the cheapest type of Dremel that would do the stuff I'd need to hack up that motherboard with?

Well, my dremel got stolen, so I bought a ToolShop version at Menards for $19.99 and honestly love it. Works with all dremel accessories, and feels rugged for the price.

Thank you, by the way.

This forum seems to be almost dead. A whole day and no replies to anything?

I would recommend Dremel brand tools. In my experience they work tons better than the "off" brand ones do.

True, but for small casework and such an off-brand should be fine.

As long as it runs at high speed and the chuck can take most dremel bits it will work. You aren't going to be putting that much strain on the motor anyway, since you'll mostly be cutting plastic and thin metal.
