Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Whats point of shear/security bolts on ignition barrel? ......dremel would been so handy.....i dont really want to pay dremel prices so a copy version of it?

Wouldn't be with out mine, so handy for all sorts of jobs.

I have got the Aldi Model and no complaints, have just ordered a new set of cutting blades for it off eBay, parts are readily available.

Happy Days.

This was it, although it was only £25 when I bought it.

I got this Draper one from Toolstation (it was around £25):

http://www.drapertools.com/product/53106/135W-230V-Multi-Tool-with-56-Piece-Accessory-Kit

Seems fine, I've abused it a little and it hasn't given up yet, however I would suspect that at this price-point it will give up eventually (however this isn't a problem as I don't use it *that* often).

Don't think you have 'Toolstation' in Ireland, but I'm sure you can get it somewhere else...

My go to one (which includes a stand and long extension bit to give you lots of flexibility) was an Amazon special and I think was the best reviewed one on there at the time if that counts for anything. It is still the same price I paid

I also paired it with a 400 piece bit set (even though it comes with a token set), which has been fine for everything that I have thrown at it so far. 

I think my only criticism is that it possibly doesn't go as fast at top speed as I remember that my previous one did, but I may also be mistaken.

Isn't a dremel just a brand like hoover?  scratch

Isn't a "dremel" just a small die grinder?

Yes, smaller than most die grinders though. Plus die grinders are sometimes air powered.

I suspect that *some* 'dremmel-esque' tools *may* have higher possible speeds than a 'traditional' die grinder, also.
