Define cheap,also what country are you from that could help narrow it down....I went with a dremel brand when i bought mine in australia i paid just about $100 for it....There were a few other cheaper brands ($40-$60 range) but i wanted something that would last along time so i went with a dremel 3000....

anything around $20 USD would be sufficient assuming you're in the USA and have a home depot nearby. The such was the one I bought for my modding a while back when it was available.

I have this one for my purposes but in red:
Force 1.1-Amp Corded Rotary Tool Kit-DISCONTINUED

My suggestions for a cheap one that is variable speed:
$19.99 WEN 101-Piece Rotary Tool Kit with Variable Speed
$26.97 Great Neck Saw 36-Pieces Rotary Tool Set

Also, I would suggest getting Reinforced Cutting discs especially if you intend to cut into steel casing. They are far safer and more durable to work with. If I recall the following ebay listing is the same one I got mine from based on the title and the discs worked out quite well. It also comes with the arbor you would normally need to fit them as a bonus.

25 REINFORCED 1 1/2" CUT OFFS DISC-WHEEL CUT OFF disc 1.5" 1/16" arbor hole

Hope this helps smile.gif

Make sure you check if the one you have locally stocks that item otherwise you may have to use their site to have it shipped to your local store or shipped to you. Might as well save a trip that way due to the gas prices in case they don't readily have it available.

Also, thanks for the rep thumb.gif
