The Dremel was always something I used for bench work so the Foredom is perfect for me. I'd made an overhead arm for the tool balancer that I put on my 5" grinder so the Foredom just hangs next to it. I was loaded for bear with those two hanging and my bench mount die grinder set up on the same bench. I probably won't need the 5" grinder for detail sanding once the angle head and flap disks for the Foredom show up.
The foot pedal seemed the weak spot going in. I knew with use I'd get used to it, but letting off to stop isn't always intuitive for me when some thing goes wrong. So any router speed control can work with any model Foredom? They say that only certain speed controls can work with specific models. And the full-off-variable would be what I'd want too.
