Officially "Awesome" because Frotter said so!

Having not been able to to do the required work with anything bigger than a dremel I got myself one cheap (29.95 inc delivery off amazon) , inc hardcase & accy's.
Then wandering around homebase I found for 25.00 the slightly lower powered skil set (both skil & dremel are bosch, so allthe accy's fit) this kit has the accy's (I think that the dremel has + the table/ workshop extended mount (ie hanging drill scenario, + the flexible shaft, + a torch cum support grip / close up illumination.

(if not in homebase around 29.99 on amazon currently)

Very good value for small jobs, (larger jobs too & about 1/3 of the price of buying all the attachments separately.
Recommended for diy dads, awkward access, 1.5 mm pilot holes, tool sharpening, chainsaw sharpening, grout removal (oh yes) ..routeing etc etc...

 (perfect for grinding off mortar around terracotta chimney flue prior to re-fitting, just watch out for glue melt on the grinding stones ..use 2 at intervals (1.99 each dremel / 1.48 for 5 @ wilkinsons,..though haven't tried the wilkos ones. as they get blooming hot & melt your clothes if the head pops off)

Hope this heads up helps someone on a budget or in need of a good cheap tool, I've been playing catch up with the jobs to do list & am blooming impressed thus far!   
Didn't know where to pop this so apologies mods if it's way out of designated area!
