    My Dremel lookalike has died, can't undo the chuck.

    So, I am looking to replace it. Do I buy a Dremel and suffer the markup or are there any quality alternatives out there?

    I've not found any alternatives that can match the High RPM a dremel knocks out - yet.

    The Dremel and it's range of accessories would take some beating if you ask me, plus the purchase of further accessories can be bought from a much wider variety of shops than any of Dremel's so called rivals.

    Although the rival accessories fit the Dremel, I think I am going to buy a Dremel. I now just have to decide on which model :)

    Try looking for an ebay bargain. There are often some good hardly used ones up for sale!
