    Got it as a gift several years ago. Used it twice. Once to hang a door (cut some wood out for the hinges) and another time to clean some rust off of some fishing gear.

    Thinking of pawning the darned thing.

    I've got the corded variable speed. The variable is very handy. I also have the flexible attachment, and honestly, I could not imagine it being at all useful without the flex. I've tried it a couple times without it, and considered it worthless. But....I only use it for fine detail work. I know there are a lot of other attachments and uses and so on.....but if I have a real job to do, I get out a real tool, such as a router, Rotozip, belt sander, etc. IMHO, the Dremel shines at the fine detail work. For that, it's very very handy.

    I can't really comment on the other uses, other than it always looked to me like they were trying to make it look like it would do more than it is really capable of.

    I've got the two speed with the work station to make it like a drill press. Mostly I put it horizontal and use it to sand and burnish my holsters. Love it! If I had it to do again I would have gotten one with more variable speeds. Low bogs down sanding sometimes and high burns the leather if I'm not careful. A few more speeds in between would have been nice.

    Got my variable speed Dremel about twenty years ago. Even had to rebuild the drive once, still ticking!

    I use one all the time. Great for a .25 cent Glock trigger job (fluff and buff).... I got the one that has the extra hand grip too, it worked great for carving my pumpkin this year. I carved out a boxer like my Avatar.
