The key to happy Dremel ownership is to buy the over-priced POS when you don't need it for a specific project. Buy all the stupid attachments at the same time-the Ryobi version are cheaper. Then throw it in your tool chest and forget it. If you buy it for a specific job it won't work for that job and you'll be pissed you spent the money. But, if you have it, you'll find that it is just perfect for a job every couple of years or so, and you'll throw it back in the box happy you had it.
I know this because I bought mine in 1984 and have used it, maybe, a dozen times. And it DID do a credible job of cutting out the pilot bearing on a Mazda RX-7 flywheel. The other eleven times were those classic cases where I had no idea how I was going to accomplish something and suddenly remembered the over-priced POS. It didn't always work, but at least it's easier to find in the tool chest than an electrical three prong to two prong adapter.(g)
