What an awesome little tool! It is great for cleaning and polishing where the low rotation speed and the low power motor is an advantage. When working on smaller parts I have always been aware of how my full size grinder with a felt wheel is something that still presents a demand for absolute care and wouldn't use it to polish a bolt or smaller part, out comes the dremel. This affords a nice surface area for buffing a chisel edge, as well, without taking too much off at once. This little fellow likes to be warm, so I preheat it a little on a cold day as it takes its time getting the revs up. The circuitry prevents it from rotating too fast so that is why it does that.
