    This is the one I have...great product man. The flex shaft has been a life saver on several occasions

    Exactly the same one I have, and mine was around FOUR times that price. It's the best rotary tool I've ever had, and I would suggest to buy it if you can.

    i dont think you could ever go wrong with a dremel, especially at that price! ive used an old corded one for the longest time, and it still works perfectly to this day. add to cart!

    I really hope I win, it's a bid so I'm afraid I COULD lose it if anyone else tries to get it

    Okay, i've been outbid on the dremel- should I just buy this one? (doesn't have flexi shaft)

    Too expensive I think. I bought mine without flexi shaft, but with a semirigid hard case, two years ago, for that price. I'm sure you could find it cheaper at any local store, anyway look for these two:

    Dremel Hobby 300 Series Tool - Item #230732856363 (76+7.5 AU$)

    Dremel 300 Series Bare Rotary Power Tool - Item #400017527303 (54 + 33 AU$)

    Also, in Amazon.com, they are worth a look too.

    Thanks KaanE- I'll take a look now

    EDIT:

    the first one you suggested is actually a few dollars more than the one I picked out, and is for only the dremel
    The second one is cheaper, although it doesn't come with any extra tools- just the dremel

    I'm looking on amazon now like you suggested

    EDIT #2:
    Okay, looked on amazon and I found this> http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER
    It'll cost me $86.38 AU shipped

    EDIT #3: Perhaps it's best if I buy from an australian seller- don't want to risk getting an american powerplug

    You could also pick up a dremel tool and purchase the flex shaft separately!
    I've seen the flex shafts (real dremel brand, not the knock-offs) on ebay for around $20

    Then you can get any of the corded dremels!
    SUGGESTION... If you are purchasing off of ebay and getting a used one I would suggest getting a new set of motor brushes!

    I love my Dremel! I got it second hand, it's not as powerful as any of those, and it still gets the job done!

    I have a Black and Decker I bout in 2006 that still serves me well and I didn't pay more than $30. It accepts Dremel bits as well. Just make sure whatever you get is corded so you always have power.
