I use a Black and Decker rotary amd that thing is a workhorse and a lifetime warranty for the price at Walmart was a great buy! The selectiom of compatible tools and collets are endless. I've seen parts to make it an engraver, large router, angle grinder, just waiting for the weedeater attachment

Yeah, if you are not gonna use it for lots of other things it may not suit you to get the
Pro type home repair one. But if you ever go down that road! Best of luck.

I'm not dead sure what shops carry dremmels in the UK, but I should think places like BandQ or Wicks would have them, not 100 % sure though. I'm sure from what you've said that the cheaper one would probably do you good but like I said they're not just useful for customs.

ok , first off thanks for everyones support and opinions and advice - I really appreciate it .

so just a few thing , I see what everyone saying , I might aswell get the good one for like £20 more extra but does anybody know where I could get one in the u.k ? also I don't have ebay and stuff like that so I can't get one there .and aswell I thought this one was good because its the only they have in my home town which I could go and actually right now at the store ? also I'm not sure if I would get my moneys worth . so far I've made 10 figures and I'm already starting to run out of bases and things like that . I onky really make customs for specific figures that I want in my collection and now I don't think I'm ging to be using which ever tool I buy for years to come ? I just thought something like tht is ideal for 13 year old kid who is just finishing off some customs .I'm not like proffessinal like loosecollector or anything lol

I oils again have to say just splurg. Get the dremel brand. most of them come in a starter kit. You'll get grinding sanding and a couple other things. And the add in kits are usually like...8.99 American? Not sure the conversion for were you are since I don't know exactly. But get a dremel.

Personally I would get an actual dremel, there's a reason that most people refer to most rotary tools as a dremel, it's because they are the best!!
I noticed the one you're looking at is 36 quid and for 20 ish quid extra you could get a proper one. Granted you wouldn't get as many attachments but I rarely use most of mine anyway. If 36 is your maximum I say yes go for it, it will serve you better than no rotary tool at all . I do agree with loosecollector though when he said it looks a little under powered and really a bit flimsy too. Like I said though for a bit extra you could have a tool that will last years and they're not JUST useful for customizing and modelling purposes either.

Looks under-powered if you're in the hobby for the long haul. If it's for light use, it will do.

I have two cheapos from Harbor freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/80-piece-r ... 97626.html
One is a back up, and you can't beat it for $10, but the first one is still going strong.

Alright , haha I thought that the tool was generally called a Dremmel . Ok so do you think that it will like work the same and do the same job I want it to do ? Thanks man

It's not a dremmel, but it does do the same things a dremmel does. Dremmel's jus the brand name and they are generally thought to be the best but I had a Blackspur rotary tool and it did me fine for a year or so.
