    Any advice to help the Christmas Elf improve the life of a budding Nerf mod-head? No Nerf survives the first 12 hours fully assembled or unmodified in this house... now Santa is going to fulfil a Dremel Dream and would like to make it Nerf-effective. Any Dremel bits/tools/attachments you experienced Nerf modifiers think is particularly Nerf-effective? Thankyou!

    Get yourself a flex shaft, it is a very handy attachment, as the tool itself is often big and bulky to work with. As for tools experiment with them all, you will find the ones you like to use more than so than some others. But the flex shaft is a must.

    Hey I am also interested in dremel / rotary tool kit. I believe there is a post about it long time ago. The obvious dremel brand is Dremel, apparently other people say they are of high quality and obviously on the expensive side. Available from Bunning. There is also the cheap Oztio brand which is only good for very occasional use. Another interesting brand is Ryobi which is also of decent quality but not as expensive as Dremel, problem is in difficulty in findinf the bits and attachment for Ryobi, I can't seem to find them anywhere in Australia.

    I also use an Ozito.
    The kit comes with a flex shaft, table clamp stand and some accessories to get you started for only 40 bucks at Bunnings.
    This is a fair price for a tool that I'm pretty much only going to use for Nerf guns.

    If I'm going to use it more frequently or for something more serious, it would be worth spending much more for a Dremel.

    And I would advise against buying that 12V rotary tool by XU1 from Bunnings for 20 bucks, that thing looks small and piss weak.
    However, you could give that to a girl and with the right bits it comes with, she could grind and polish her nails with it.

    dynalink rotary tool is what I use. It's fully compatible with all dremel pieces. It also comes with a flex shaft so you don't have to buy one separately.

    First of all, that is a very vague question. I also think it is one which nobody has answered yet.
    What type of dremal do you think you will receive? May i suggest the 400,
    here is a pic of it sitting next to my old ozito

    Most Useful Dremel Tool/Bit/Attachment for Nerf mods? Img0448bz

    Most Useful Dremel Tool/Bit/Attachment for Nerf mods? Img0449d

    If i remember correctly, it was around the $150 mark, totally worth every cent i say

    If i was to give you any advice, it would be to find a way to get organised, the most annoying thing is not being able to find the right bit for the job (rage!)
    I just use these trays and have my bits organised according to type.
    Most Useful Dremel Tool/Bit/Attachment for Nerf mods? Img0447n0


    About the actual bits, can't really help you without knowing what type of modder you are/ what your plans are. But one thing which everyone uses is the cutting disks
    I have seen three different types:
    Most Useful Dremel Tool/Bit/Attachment for Nerf mods? Img0451ig
    the ones on the top left seem to work the best at everything, the ones on the top right are good and cheap, but they often crack and fly off at high speed, one diamond one at the bottom is just useless... it worked for like half a day but now it doesnt cut shit..

    Dont half ass it when it comes to buying tools, ozito are shit, dont expect it to last long. Ive had a Dremel 300 since january and its still going hard, I would expect different for ozito. Power tools are something worth spending good money on, it will pay off in the future.

    Im just sayin, it's a better buy if you get the decent brand,compare DeWalt to Ozito, or Ryobi. Ask any tradsman, they choose the good brand not the shit cheap ones.

    well it's much better to spend the money on a tool that will easy last you 10 years+, than buy somthing that will last half that.

    I am thinking about getting one, though I am just a casual user. Thinking about Ryobi one from Bunning, is it really that shit? Dremel 400 just seems a bit too expensive for casual use. Hmm, hard to decide

    As i have actually ownd and used both a dremel and and an ozito extensively, i think im in the best position to compare the two... So here it is:

    The ozito is great for simple stuff(nerf modding), it spins fast and i guess has a fair amount of power for its price point. However the speed controls are not even close to as accurate as the dremel, in fact the speed changes when your now even doing any thing :/. There are a lot more vibrations in this unit, and it really fails when trying to use it at highest speeds. Another point worth mentioning is that the cooling on that unit is quite poor also; it gets too hot too quickly. For nerf/general modding, where cutting and grinding plastics and wood are the objectives, and continuous operation is under 20mins the Ozito does the job quite well.

    In closing, the dremel is the industry leader and is be far better!... But some of the other brands like Ozito are good cheaper alternatives.

    I agree to an extent. I have a ryobi drills and a GMC compound saw, i think the saw is 8 years, the drill is somewhere between 5 and 10 years.. they are going well no issues. But i am slowly replacing all my tools with makita ones

    I've never looked back after buying the Dremel 69 piece cutting set for about $25 from Bunnings.

    Sadly, I fell for this mongrel. For my mere $20, I expected more. It takes me 30 mins to cut a piece of aluminum, and I am being completely honest. I am going to buy a ryobi with my Christmas money.

    I love it, Chinese or not it wasn't cheap like the ozito one ($120 for the dremel set, comes with ALOT of peices). Variable speeds work fine, solid, etc. Granted I havent done any metal work with it, maybe its 'cheapness' will shine then?

    I also have their drill and heat gun (use it to fix my 60gig ps3 every time it YLODs on me)

    Good to hear that, however a lot of people of net complaining the Ryobi resets its speed to lowest every time you switch it off and people get really annoyed with that. How do you find yours and how do you adapt to it?

    I just got a Dremel 300 today :D! Working fine so far, very happy with it!
    It came with a flex-shaft, numerous bits, 90 degree angle thing, and a plethora of other little pieces!

    I would probably reccommend that to you, it has worked well for the 30mins that I have played with it I am currently going to create a model balsa wood aeroplane, wish me luck on that.

    Does anyone have any tips and/or tricks that they are willing to share with dremel-ing?

    Hey guys,

    New to this forum so please forgive the newbie comments but I've been using my Dremel for years with other hobbies and around the house.

    Pay more and get a genuine one... You won't regret it. They are reliable, built well and don't quit. I know there's quite a few clones out there and some might last a while, but they are built to a price. I know there's a good clone on the Hobbyking.com website but even then you're getting a copy (but at least you're buying almost directly, rather than through distributors etc). Just don't expect the copies to last as long as the original.

    I use clone bits but have always found the genuine bits to be more reliable and less likely to blow up whilst in use.

    Ozito is very cheap and reliable. You just dont' get as many cutting bits.

    For those who have a habit of breaking cutting bits... I just got a metal disc hahaha.

    +1 regarding the metal discs. Keep plenty of them spare because you'll chew through them, that's for sure.

    Tip - when cutting with the discs, avoid putting lateral pressure on the tool because it tends to make the discs snap and fly all over the place.
