Default Rotary tool, which one to buy?

I have been searching around for a rotary tool to use on my chassis and cutting small parts.

After looking around on the web, I ran across this:

http://www.harborfreight.com/Heavy-D...-Pc-68696.html

Wondering if anyone on here is currently using one? All the reviews were good.
HF has several other models that people left bad reviews on however this was one that seemed to do the job for most people.

Please let me know what your thoughts are on this.

What rotary tool do you use?

I had one of those for a while it was a decent tool. I upgraded and bought the Milwaukee M12 and it'd a great tool. Alot easier to handle without the cord

I have a variable speed dremel with the flex shaft as well. I have had this dremel for as long as I have been on Scale4x4 and it still runs like a champ. It is my workhorse on my bench and I can tell you that 95% of the attachments that I use on it are my 1" carbide cut off wheel and a 1/2" sanding drum. If you want to save some money, go with a higher end dremel without the starter kit and invest in a flex shaft when you get the chance. I've got a bag full of attachments that I never use.

I have this one: Professional-Woodworker-100-PieceProfessional-Woodworker-100-Piece but mine came with a flex shaft. (also sold at Home Depot stores)

Has served me VERY well with fairly heavy use - used it for artistic etching on glass and metal. Still going strong.
