    What dremels do you reccomend for modding and is it possible to put dremmel bits into a drill and use that instead of buying a dremel? what hot glue guns do you reccomend also? Must be in bunnings, mastersor supercheap if possible Thanks in advance.

    I can highly recommend the Ozito rotary tool with the flex shaft and 40 piece kit from bunnings. Got it for $40. it's got 170w of power, comes with a bench stand to hang the rotary tool when using the flex shaft. Buy a mini cutting attachment for 20 bucks, it'll cut through Nerf shells like paper.

    Okay, so I'm an adult, with a decent disposable income...

    Dremel branded rotary tool, and Dremel branded hot glue gun.

    On a budget - ozito rotary tool, and ozito hot glue gun.

    You won't get the control out of a drill that you need, let alone the RPM needed.

    Jaycar also have a good rotary tool:

    http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=TD2459

    And I've bought three of these accessory kits - not brilliant, but value for money:

    Cheers,

    I Bought a ozito rotary tool from bunnings but with the expanded bits to try out.
    I think it was like $10-20 more and looks a lot like the accessory kit from Jaycar that clunk linked but of course included the rotary tool as well.
    Not bad if you are on a budget because a Dremel can cost like $80+ on its own without any bits.
    Anyway it does the job fine for trimming and hacking up plastic stuff no problems.

    But a Dremel rotary tool is the best out of the two for sure, used one many times with a diamond cutting blade for trimming up blaster shells.
    Pretty dam awesome it is! Don't own one though *sigh*, always had to borrow it off my bother in-law.
    when my income become disposable as clunk puts it, i will getting one for sure.

    The biggest benefit I've seen, is more the dremel attachments. Their Ez-lock system is brilliant, albeit rather pricey. I alternate between a reinforced cutting wheel designed for plastic, and a super-thin disc for cutting brass. Takes about 2 seconds to swap over the wheels - you just push
    'n twist, and it's done...

    Cheers,

    Yeah they do have a better attachment and attachment system for sure.
    The problem is fitting there bits to the ozito can be a nightmare (shaft size).
    Also I was told dremel rotary have a better life span as they are bushless or something like that.

    I just stick with the hard diamond blade, its thin enough for the brass and plastic.
    I must admit it does heat up the plastic a little and make it start to melt sometimes but cut is still clean.
    I just finish up with a hobby knife to clean the edge up and it looks pretty sweet.

    I've got a 3-jaw chuck for my Dremel, and that really makes life easier.

    The plastic cutting wheel is brilliant, but isn't cheap either. I'm yet to get any plastic to even smoulder while using it...

    At the end of the day though, you make do with the best tools you have available. After so many years as a tradesman, I like to have the best quality I can afford. That generally means a longer life-span too.

    Cheers,

    Wow i like the sound of that plastic cutting wheel, I will definitely look into one when i get some spare cash again.

    But with nerf stuff you really don't need to have quality tools in most cases.
    And for some people on a budget its the way to go.
    It's only when you start venturing into metal stuff like brass breaches.
    Its true though at the end of the day IF gets the job done without messing it up its all good.

    But I am the same tools and most thing, I like quality.
    Some of the cheap stuff doesn't last long at all.

    But in the end its each to there own I guess : )

    I was fairly fortunate in that I had a fairly well-stocked workshop before getting in to NERF. I had to buy a few Dremel attachments, and the hot glue gun, but that was about it really. I use a Makita LXT batt drill with a precision screw-driver attachment, but I had them as well.

    I really want a bandsaw and a scroll saw, but that's more for home-mades than anything else...

    Cheers,

    My first post mate....

    Dremel branded hot glue gun if you've got the coin. Spring-loaded bipod, dual temperature, work light, good quality, uses larger diameter glue sticks.

    Ozito if you're on a budget. Best bet is to go to Bunning's/Mitre 10/Discount shop and see what you can find.

    I've got an Ozito hot glue gun, but it only uses the smaller diameter glue sticks. Good for quick jobs.

    Cheers,

    I haven't had to use a hot glue gun in a while, but that's just because I use super glue and and epoxy. A $5 ozito branded gun will be fine, think they have a lifetimr warranty

    Don't quote me, but most ozito gear used to have a 3-year warranty. Brilliant for the price you pay!!

    Yeah, I cant remember for sure, but 3 years sounds right. For their price you dont really feel bad if they fail, as long as you get some use.

    For what they are, all the ozito gear is brilliant.

    When I was running my fabrication shop, we bought about a dozen ozito 5 inch grinder's for the price of one Makita.... 5 years later, and I still have 5 of them in perfect working conditon. We had to send a few back for warranty repairs, but they did cop a hammering!!

    I've been using a Bostik hot glue gun since I started modding. It has been used to glue fill a few blasters and had literaly hundreds of sticks put through it and shows no sign of slowing down.

    As for what type of rotary tool do i suggest, go for a Dremel. I have 3 of them, 2 cordless and one corded, also i have the Dremel hot glue gun too. You can survive with the cheap hot glue guns and just self regulate the heat by plugging it in or unplugging it from time to time, but i prefer the Dremel hot glue gun as it has 2 heat settings high and low, and the light is really cool too.
