    Dremel is a great tool. Just learn to use it judiciously and it can yield some good results.

    The cordless ones aren't as powerful as the ones you plug in. With a cordless, it takes twice as long to ruin your feedramp or barrel throat.

    You'll have to accesorize that you know......

    More bits, flexable shaft, 90 degree.

    Then you'll decide you need more power. :nod:
