I'm pretty basic when it comes to my tools. But I found an excellent deal on a Woodworking station by Dremel. The thing retailed for over $250 and you can get it now at Amazon for $179 (free shipping). I've seen this one in action and it is great. You get an impressive scroll saw that has a full 90 degree rotation (you can use it like a band saw!). It also has the useful dust blower and light. It even accepts the flexi-shaft for all your other dremel tools. I'd even recommend this instead of getting a Dremel. Just get this and a flexi-shaft and you are in business. Finally, it has a disc sander on the side. Pretty neat stuff.

I donít know if it could replace a dremel for model work. The sanding disk wouldnít be the greatest at getting into tight spots like a small drum sander.

Otherwise it looks like a great deal on a scroll saw.

sure you could! The flexi-shaft plugs right into that sander and there you have it. The flexi-shaft is much more easier to use than the dremel all by itself.

Oops I missed that part.

Looks like that would be a great modeling tool.
