I'm buying a dremel for my case modding, any of you from Canada know some good place to buy a dremel? I just want some really affordable one, I saw one in the superstore like 59.99 something, forgot the model number, is it good? What dremel do you recommend?

BTW,I'm from Victoria. :)

I don't know about Canada but you will want a variable speed dremel that is corded. The battery ones run low quickly and don't seem to have the power. You don't have to buy a Dremel brand rotary tool, you can buy a B&D, craftsman, Dewalt etc... as long as it has variable speed and decent rpm. Hope that is helpful.

I recommend the Black & Decker RTX. It has a lot more power (torque) so it doesn't slow down as much as the Dremel brand. Same 1/8" bits fit both, and price is comparable.

I replaced my dead dremel with an RTX and, IMHO, it's a lot better.

Black and Deckers are really great. Most of their other products are crap, but amazingly they know their "dremels."

I will vouch for Canadian Tire's Mastercraft version of the dremil... got mine at x-mas on sale for $99 with all the accessories and I was not dissapointed at all. You can get he tool itself for less but this came with everything so I took it. Uses the same bits and all as the real dremel, variable speed and whatnot. Go get it! You won't be let down.
