    Hello friends!

    Just bought myself a dremel starter kit to add to my arsenal and brush up my customizing skills!

    Wanted you ask you all your experiences and recommendations for using a dremel.

    I'm looking to drill and create circle imprints for my first project, but don't really know which bit to use.

    I figured testing it out on my Iron Man NOW figure is a good starter before i move into my more valueble transformers :) 

    I was thinking of actually making the parts painted red with an indented circle at each spot like in the comics

    Can't wait to get started!

    there are many drillbits for dremels that could work, buy a styrine plate first and practise! witch one did you buy? I have a wireless one and one with a powercord.. remember to start at a low setting to see how the plastic reacts, to fast means more heat and it will become a burned piece of waste..

    good luck!
