Question Dremel Rotary Tool Recommendation for Beginner

I'd like to add a rotary tool to my arsenal of tools, however, I don't know where to start. The number of options on Amazon seems endless and prices seem to go from $20 to $200.

Any recommendations for a reasonably-priced rotary tool for someone just starting to learn about them?

There are many to choose from and I own most of them
There was a point where I used at least one a day.

I have the 12v Milwaukee chargeable unit that I keep in my tool bag.
M12TM Cordless Lithium-Ion Rotary Tool | Milwaukee Tool About $100.
Little hard to use.... doesn't do graceful grinding but powerful for in the field.

If you are looking for a plug in unit for home... nothing beats a Dremel.
The 3000 kit for around $75 is extremely useful. I have the older versions of this grinder.

I had the older battery powered Dremel. Was never impressed by it. I may have to scope out the newer ones.

You could always take a "handymans day out" to your local store to see some of them in action.

Thanks, PJmax (awesome name, BTW). I'm definitely looking for something to use around the house and I tend to lean towards plug-ins vs battery-charged. Looks like the 3000 kit is right for me!
