    Uber,

    Good find! Hope to hear how it goes for you once you've had it a while - looks like it would be a very powerful combo.

    thanks,

    Brian

    If you find a post of mine that is missing a pic that you'd like to see, let me know & I'll see if I can find a copy.

    That is good to know, it would be nice if all manufacturers had to list output power of their tools. The Dremel did get insanely hot so I could see it making 50W in heat pretty easily. The Proxxon's proper balancing would probably make it a bit more efficient too.

    Would the Proxon accept bits and cutters that I purchased for the Dremel?
