I did a search on "Dremel", but there was no directly relevant thread.

So here is my question: is this Pet Nail Grooming Kit (it IS by Dremel) suited for modelling uses? My girlfriend got it for me, bless her soul, but I'm afraid if I take it to my Legend Gundam ... it will turn into an Untold Legend.

Those drums are crap on plastic. Well, Dremel doesn't have anything good for shaping plastic. Its just too fast.

Good for other stuff though

I've used one alot for my qubeley (goodness knows when i'll get back to it) but I think it does an extremely rough job. I had to do lotsa sanding with a needle file. Just look at lines on this



I had an ac to dc adaptor which had an adjustable voltage and I could vary the speed abit. Think if you intend to remove seams and flash.. its no point. But for heavy duty hole making and reshaping, I think its pretty decent. You need to practise alot before you're able to control it. Also, I think you might have to get different tips and bits instead of the one provided.

Well, the diamond saw should work fine for cutting, but its like the most expensive bit they sell
