I bought a new rotary tool about six months or so ago now and I'm now in a position to review it.

This is the item and where I bought it from:

You also need the power supply:

My criteria when I was looking to upgrade from a cheapie version were:

1: It had to fit neatly in the hand.

2: It had to have variable speed.

3: It had to have plenty of torque so as to be able to hog out arches on a body etc. (Something the cheapies don't have)

4: It had to be affordable.

5: It had to be good quality.

6: It had to have a proper chuck and not those stupid changeable 'collets'

This one ticked all the boxes and I can highly recommend it.

Looks like a cost of about £60, with the transformer being the pricey part.
...but out of stock for a couple of months.
My cheap drill needs replacing for many of the reasons you have listed,
- the drill runs too fast and tends to melt it's way through so I have reverted to the small hand pin drills.

I'll be keeping my eye on that site - Thanks Al.
