Dremel Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've decided to invest in a dremel to do some more serious mods on my case. I'd also like to redo my paint job with the case disassembled.This is the dremel I've decided on.

now for questions

in the photo, it shows a drill bit attachment. not sure of the size but would any drill bit work? Instead to buying a drill just to de-rivet my case, would the dremel do fine instead?

EDIT: this one is cheaper

better choice?

No, if my dremel is anything to go by you can only use dremel tools with them.

They dont have the tightening bits like electric drills have, they have collars and compression fittings designed for very specific sizes.


Edit:

Those both look like they have the same fittings, I would also recommend thinking about what you want to do with your dremel and looking at kits that include the tool bits you require instead of buying them separately, might save you some cash.

Dremel has a chuck (4486) and this should allow you to use some drill bits:


Also, the following accessories makes cutting holes (fans, windows etc) a breeze when combined:

and
