Well my birthdays rolled around again (as birthdays often do) and when it came to looking at my list of present suggestions my family were greatly flummoxed by the 'Dremel'. ("I dont understand, you want a power tool for your birthday??  Huh )

I looked on t'internet for examples of the 'dremel multipro' that came so highly reccomended on the boards here, but the closest i can see is the 300 series.


Any advice on what model I should be going for? I'll be using it mainly for cutting and sanding plastic and metal and possibly wood too.

Any advice for a new dremeller would be greatly appreciated!!

Unfortunately I'm not help, but I second this question.  (I asked for the same thing for a 'gift day' that we have, and no one has any idea what I'm talking about).

I actually just bought a Dremel Model 800 - it was on the clearance rack at the local store and I couldn't pass it up.  Not familiar with the differences but this is a Lithium-Ion cordless 10.8 volt and was on sale for $52 with 60 accessories (many which appear to be sanding items), but hubby said it was a good deal.  I charged it up and was playing with the different bits on wood to see what it does.  Now ... what to make!?!?   Debbie  Smiley

I looked around a lot on here before I purchased mine, and I got the Dremel Stylus.  Its little, cute, seems like it'll be easy to handle (its still in the box right now, I can't wiat to go home and try it out!) and craftster jewerly makers seem to use that model.
