Don't buy imitations.

That's hardly a problem of the device.

Mine is corded BTW. I don't like battery's.

Mine is corded as well for the same reason. And yes, Dremel is the brand. Do not be fooled by those $20 Rotary Tool sales! You can definitely by a cheap one for small, portable projects but dont expect it to perform the same as the high end tools.

Yeah most don't come with a lot of stuff.
There are sets for Dremel, maybe you can find those cheap somewhere.

But like most things, if it looks too cheap it probably is.

For what it's worth...the best rotary tool I have ever used is one I got for $20 about 5-10 years ago, gets loads of heavy use, and is still going strong as ever. Very glad I didn't shell out for a Dremel brand, an equivalent tool would have cost me about $100...so your mileage may vary when it comes to cheap rotary tools. Though I've purchased a few though throughout the years, at around that same price, that have really sucked.

Check on Amazon too, I usually order a pack of 100 reinforced cut off wheels for less than $10 (Canadian). They work nearly as good as the expensive Dremel reinforced discs, for a mere fraction of the cost. I was surprised how good they worked, I expected them to be garbage as most of the cheap ones are. I can share a link if anyone's interested...I'd just have to dig through my bookmarks and make sure they are still available.

EDIT - here's a link anyway - http://www.amazon.com/SE-RFW28100-Reinforced-4-Inch-Dremel/dp/B005NJ099A/ref=pd_cp_469_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0KQ9P6B2EKSBJV2MVK3V&dpID=41hp6eys4HL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL70_SR70%2C33_ - pretty sure those are the ones I buy, can't beat the price and they work very well. Most cheap discs are a waste of time, but these are not.

Agreed, there are gems out there.
But for the most part, cheap stuff is cheap. tongue.gif

Is it bad to use compressed air to clean out dust in a keyboard? My Ducky Mini tends to accumulate dust on the sides of its keys, which makes it really hard to clean. I have stopped using canned air and now have a Metrovac ED-500, which is considerably more powerful. Will the dust end up clogging my switches? I don't have my keypuller with me and so cannot use it until December, so it's either I use air and blow out the dust or wait until December to pull all the keys and wash them.

I want to join the Pok3r MD buy but they're out of MX Black switches? DAAAAAANNNNNGGG!

I tried the MX Brown before and currently use an MX red for my TKL, so I have a few questions...

If I get an MX Brown and lube it, will it be heavier to depress than the MX red (because of the tactile bump adding to the resistance)? Would the weight or feeling be a cross between the red and black? My issue with my MX Brown before was the grating or rough feeling when depressing the keys (stock and unlubed), that's why I switched to MX Black.

Lastly, how big of a jump is going from a TKL to a 60% KB? What wil I be having to adjust to or miss with my TKL?

I really want that grey pok3r! biggrin.gif

Browns are the same weight as reds, they just have the bump. All of my keyboards except two are full size, with a TKL and a 60%. In my experience, if you don't use the right side much (right shift, right super/winkey) then a 60% is pretty easy to get used to. I have the right side of my board set to arrow keys which works just fine for me. I also replaced Caps with another Fn, and that makes it easy to use as well.
