    Those of you who have one for making adjustments on figures. I went to Walmart the other day and there were at least 4 different pricepoints, each with their own settings, ranging from battery power to wall plug, and two-speed to variable speed. Prices ranged from ~$20 to ~$70.

    Which one would you recommend, oh and what dremel tool would you recommend?

    Mine cost me £20 and has one of those little wheels so you can adjust the speed. Rechargable battery and lots of grindy cutty things to poke in it. No idea what make or model it is. Never used it on a TF, it was purchased so I could cut channels to run the lighting through a dolls house for someone.
    Maybe you can try some out at a hardware store to get a feel for which would work best for you. I did that when I went to buy a router.

    The corded one with the slider switch. It's about 2 years old, but they still sell the same model at Lowes.

    I picked mine up at a WalMart too. It's a Dremel Model 754, one of the cheaper end ones, probably the $20 one, but still a 2-speed. I also picked up the 150 piece set while I was at it. I think that cost another $20.

    All I really need now is a second battery.
