Is this good for basic modding? Like cutting a fan hole or something..

EDIT: Click "Cordless Rotary Tools And Kits" in the middle and then "#7700-02 7.2V Cordless MultiPro® Rotary Tool Kit".

over all for general modding thats great (dont get the rechargable ones) but for cuting fan holes go to like homedepot or a hardware store and get one of those drill bits that have the drill in the center for lining it up and the big round circular cutter that goes around the outside

they will cut a perfect circle and you can get them in the sizes that you need

So for cutting windows and stuff they good? Walmart sells the 7.2V one for 30 bucks so I'm planning on getting one.

yeah they are good for alot of stuff but for doing like the inside cuts make sure you get the little router type attachment that allows you to go around the inside of say plexiglass or plastic or something

im just saying that for something like fan holes where you want a nice cirlce you would need to use a regular drill with one of those bit im talking about

i added a pic of one

Yes,for perfect circles,use a hole cutting bit for a drill. They are quick,simple,and cheap. For cutting simple windows i reccomend a jigsaw over a dremel anyday,but for the more intricate windows,a dremel is the only option.

Definitely dont go cordless though,its too much of a hassle,the battery will likely die within minutes grinding through hardened steel. Ive had my corded one for 5 years now and its still going strong.
