    My wife dragged me kicking and screaming to brave the Christmas crowd down at WallyWorld (Walmart for you living in the real world), and I'm kinda glad she did. I found a Mini roto-tool (brand name Test-rite) for $10 US that works like a little dream. It's worth that much just for the bits and collets (seem to work ok with my regular Dremel tool). It doesn't have quite the oomph of a Dremel, but made short work of sanding down the wheels for my Bz-4, then cutting off some brass tubing. If you happen to run across one, snap it up quick....one great tool for the money.

    Howdy guys

    I got one of these roto tools about 4 weeks ago, the aluminum case is worth the $10, and the tool works good for really small stuff. I am a machinist by trade and have other tools and die grinders and I thought this would be great for hobbies.....and it is.

    have a good day,
