TOOL QUESTION: Dremel vs. ???

Does anyone have an opinion on a Dremel kit, or any other brand for a small, corded high-RPM cutter/grinder/polisher? I bought an '02 a couple of months ago, and have a project lined up that needs a dremel tool. I'm thinking I'd want non-cordless, as I don't want the battery dying on me in the middle of a job. Is Dremel the 'snap-on' of tiny grinders, or will a cheap-o off-brand (think harborfreight) get me by? Thanks for reading.... -Chris

I HAVE A FOREDOM BRAND OF A DREMEL LIKE TOOL .

IT HAS A REMOTE DRIVE AND POWERS THE TOOL IN YOUR HAND BY WAY OF A FLEX SHAFT CABLE .

THERE ARE A LOT OF ATTACHMENTS AVAILABLE FOR THESE AND ONE OF THE HAND SETS I HAVE LOOKS LIKE A SOMETHING A DENTIST WOULD USE .

THE IDEA IS TO HAVE MORE POWER AVAILABLE THAN IT WOULD BE PRACTICAL

TO PUT IN YOU HAND AND USE IN A DELICATE WAY .

THIS IS A NICE IDEA BUT IN PRACTICE , I HAVE FOUND THAT THE TOOLS HEAT UP AFTER AWHILE AND I HAVE TO KEEP PUTTING THE DOWN FOR THEM TO COOL OFF .

THIS ISN'T THE END OF THE WORLD BUT IF I USED IT MORE , IT WOULD START GETTING OLD . MAYBE I SHOULD QUIT RUNNING IT WIDE OPEN .

HERE IS A GUY TO DEMONSTRATE :
