Does it run straight off the mains or is it rechargable?

Thanks, was wondering if the motor was upto the job.

I'm guessing that this is no where near as good as a Dremell
#14
Re this vs dremel, the dremel has a selection of 15k rpm or 33k rpm, or mine certainly does. Potentially that makes it slow work to get through harder materials, eg steel

Bought one of these a year ago. Well worth it for £7.99 although I'd only consider it for light usage - it wont worry a £50 dremel.

This looks like a tool I've got (though mine was bought in China) and it's high speed but pretty gutless. It works OK if you don't put much pressure on it - these kind of tools are designed to take lots of very small cuts very fast - but to be honest I normally get out the proper Dremel when this thing won't get the job done. It's very small and light though, which is why I sometimes don't get the Dremel out first. One bonus (assuming this is the same as the one I have) is that it's 12V, rather than 240V and runs off a transfomer or a car battery, which is handy if you need one of these away from the mains.

Correct - 12 V, tool lead plugs into a transformer, no doubt there's a car lighter adaptor out there. I've used it to cut and drill plastic today and it's fine as long as you take your time and as you say don't put too much pressure on.

i also have one of these and agree with the comments in regards to it's power. I mainly use mine for R/C Aircraft modelling (epp) which it has been ideal for.
#19
Looks like a Minicraft one I bought years ago, good little tool too.
Great price here if it is the same kind of thing.
I still ended up getting a Dremel tho, this one is fine for some jobs (especially model/craft stuff) but that bit too light I found or more household or motorcycle/automotive work.
