my wife is passed her child bearing years. I do advise my kids to use them though.
Sorry, couldn't resist,

i had to google what it was. I use my little dremel pretty often for all sorts of stuff, and occasionally on woodworking projects.... certainly not enough to justify the cost. I can see how someone doing small carving might be interested in something like that

Out of my price range.
Trojans are better, anyway.

I use an older Foredom with flex shaft and variable speed foot switch.

I have one simular to it but i think it is a craftsman. I am not really sure much about it because i have not yet used it. it was one of the tools my good friend had left me when he died of brain cancer.

A great tool

I picked a Foredom up at a trade show a two years back. It came with a high speed and a carving handle and several carving blades. Then Lowes was clearing bits out and I ended up with a heck of an assortment, topped off with some Harbor Freight diamond bits.

Though way more spendy than a Dremel, this thing has proven a fun and useful toy. But I'd been wanting one for a few decades.

When it rains it pours - a lady gave me another one because it quit working. One switch later and another wood worker is in Foredom/Hog heaven.
