High speed effer-upper. How did I get along without one?

Corded. Mine is two speed. I use and abuse it. No issues.

They sell the little carbon brushes for the motor at Lowes and Ace.

Must have bits: 125 high speed cutter, tungsten carbide cutter, loads of black cut off wheels (second the comment about them flying to pieces- but still a must have), grinding stones, wire brushes and I don't know what it's called but they have a cutter that looks like a circle saw blade.

Be careful with any soft buffing and polishing pads. You can buff and polish clean through some stuff in a flash. I know.

I have the cordless variable speed unit, and it works just fine. Used it numerous times...and like it more each time I use it!

They make heavy duty cutoff wheels as well. They are quite a bit thicker, so not as precise. I've used them successfully on many projects that I should have used an actual die grinder for.

The newer reinforced cut-off wheels are a must for anything metal. The old wheels shouldn't be used for anything other than plastic or wood, IMO.

A little off-topic here, but I picked up a Dremel clone (corded!) a couple months ago to modify a plastic case. For that task, it was small enough that I could probably have used virtually any of the bits and gotten it done, but I'm not really sure how to identify what the various bits are for. Does anyone have a favorite tutorial / reference for beginner Dremel use?

most likely ANY drill could drill through an antique coin - it's just a matter of a sharp bit for any metal-cutting job.

I have the corded variable speed and I love it. I like certain things to be cordless but others need to be corded. More than likely whatever you are using the Dremel on will be small, portable, and/or near a wall socket. The corded provides more power and unlimited use without re-charging and is far superior than the battery powered one IMHO
