I was thinking about getting a rechargable battery operated dremel tool at Wally World ($20) . It says it has two speeds. Is something like this good for 'fluff and buff' on guns or do you really need something expensive with full variable speed (like used in jewelry work?)

Opinions :?:

Then the question is what are the recommended wheels and polishing compounds. :?:

I have the same 2-speed Dremel you're referring to. It seems to do the job for me at the higher speed but I'm no F&B expert.

The battery-powered Dremels work just fine for 99% of the stuff you'll need to do!
I generally only use a corded one, in fact, when I'm actually grinding something... and that's not very often at all.

Hmm,
My digital Dremel is one of my most cherished tools. I used it just the other day to drill some screw holes in concrete to hang some wind chimes for my wife. (my rechargeable drill was out of juice, and being too lazy to go out back and get my power drill I grabbed the Dremel off the shelf and threw a small masonry bit on)
Get an electric Dremel you'll love it.

I saw a dremel tool in Lowe's the other day that was battery operated and was for cleaning golf clubs. It was only 10.00 and now I wish that i would have bought it and threw it in my range bag.....oh well, another missed opportunity..

Varmint!! Electric, as opposed to battery (electric) powered. Rakkin frakkin varmint. Yep, the digital Dremel is XP ready, and even plays your favorite MP3's.

An old tradition from the old board. WB bleepers we called it, and I've grown rather fond of the Yosemite Sam bleepers. If you'd prefer the real thing I could send you an e-mail.

I kinda like that one too. What was the topic of this thread again? :oops:
Ah, topic? I think it was about not drifting off topic, or was that another thread? I dunno, it was so long ago.....

Oh yeah, I remember now, something about a battery powered Dremel, or was it a hand crank? Something like that. Of course you could move up to a gas powered Dremel.

Dremel

Get the cable with handpiece. It's smaller size and lighter weight give greater control.
Now if I could only find mine. It may have disappeared during our move to Va.
