if i had one i may try to use it to make jewelry- like drill holes into resin pendants ( i only assume you can do this- but i've never tried) , or little wood bits with stuff decoupaged onto it.

I LOVE my Dremels (yes, I have more then one). My favorite attachment is the Flex Shaft (looks like a small hose). It allows you to use a dremel tip just like a pen or pencil which is very handy when you want to do fine etching on something like glass or metal.
Uses? I work mostly with wood so I've used it to carve, sand, shape, and drill. I've collected scrap wood that still has nails in it and the Dremel cuts off hard-to-remove nails like butter. I've also used it to etch on glass and acrylic. You can cut terra cotta with it, carve eggs, and more and the Dremel is a versatile tool that takes you beyond crafting. You can..

- ID personal property
- polish jewelry
- sharpen any blade from a pocket knife to to a lawn mower blade (great for scissors)
- cut, carve, and etch a variety of materials
- use it for household projects (i.e. making a hole for a lightswitch)
The more you use it the more you'll find ways to use it.

The Dremel site itself is a great source of information AND projects. Their message board is top notch for answering any questions you might have.

My biggest project was for an ornament exchange last Christmas, I carved 25 eggs with Toby Keith's face in them for Toby Keith warrior's involved in the exchange, They came out great!
