Dremel Tool

Posted in Custom Workstation

There's actually a few questions I have but this one I wanted to ask first since I'm looking to get one real soon. Does any dremel tool work fine on action figures or is there some specific one/brand that's best for this kinda hobby? I was looking through the ones they had at Home Depot and saw one that was $20 but was mostly just for etching. Am thinking this one won't do but the next cheapest one was $50. Would the $50 one do or is there a big difference between that and say the $100 one when it comes to working on figures?

Dremmels are the best. I've had loads of cheap ones just die on me and I've had my trusty dremmel 300 for over 3 years now and it's still going strong. Personally I prefer the corded ones, there's nothing more frustrating than a battery dying half way through a job.

+1 to what Pock said.

I have had both Dremel and off brands. I like Dremel more but that could just be a figure of luck. Once you do purchase one, you can pretty much by any attachment that you want, doesn't matter the company, it usually fits.

All of the dremels I've had have come with all of the basic attachments you would need.

Alright, sounds good, thanks. Is there any particular attachments/interchangeable tops I should definitely have on hand? Any I really shouldn't use 'cause they'd just hinder instead of help?

I doupt it would make a big difference on working on figures between the $50 and $100 models. I think the main difference in prices is based on how powerful of a motor you have and it shouldn't make a big difference for customs. I'd suggest a cordless dremel because not having a cord in the way makes for very easy and convenient work on figures and small details.
