I've decided that I can no longer live without a Dremel. Where is the best place to get one?

Lowes, Home Depot, yadayada- any good tool/hardware facility. Even Sears!

Got mine at Lowe's. Think about getting a kit. May be a lot cheaper in the long run than buying the little wheels seperate, they ain't cheap. I actually have two. I keep a rotary wood rasp in one fixed-speed all the time (mostly because I can't get it out) use the other one (variable, which I recommend) for other chores.

http://www.jlindustrial.com/ Sells Dremels and other versions of hand grinders to.
They also seel the different grinding wheels much cheaper than the dremel or black and decker does.

Id get the flex handle attachment too, it's much smaller diameter allows easy access for feed ramp polishing etc. Usually cheaper when bought as a kit, I think 60-70ish at wally world

Buy a Sears model they have a contract with Dremel they sit side by side in the stores, "Sears" are actually DREMEL made. Might add hand tools are manufactured by "WESTERN FORGE" mostly.
Would be sure to get a variable speed also. Not a 2 speed but either ifinite adjustment or 5+ speed adjustments.

Unless you need the gratification of a "new" tool I would look at Pawn shops. I bought mine there with several attatchments-flex shaft, right angle attatchment etc.. with beaucoup bits for a whopping $35.00.

Let's get armedpeasant more confused.

I have seen other models, Black&Decker I think, that claim to be more powerful than a Dremel. There is no such thing as too much power.

Does anyone have experience with other brands?

Bought mine Online, got it for less than Homo Depot.
Do a search for Dremel tool and you will find them.

I got mine at http://www.toolsforless.com

They have a great deal on the new DIGITAL dremel with accessories.

I searched everywhere, and this was the cheapest place I found.

Most Sams wholesale clubs has the complete Dremel set for under $60.00.
