I just found out that Zellers, here in Vancouver anyhow, is selling a rotary tool with some extras for $14. It will not be high powered but it will do the job. I have a dremel and a cheap one. The cheap one will bog down a bit when pressured, but for small jobs it is great. I don't know if the price will be the same all over, but I hoped that this will allow some of you to get rotary tool on the cheap. It is made by "Powersmith". I hope this helps.
