Dremel Alternatives? Answered

Is there any alternative for a dremel so that I could widen the hole in my NF so that the new barrel would fit in?

i'd use sandpaper taped around a drill bit, but that's just me...

if it has adjustable speeds all the better....so you can slow it down a bit if need be.

oh yeah, by the way, a great, new dremel is only $70... it's well worth the price, if you ask me, but it depends on how many projects you do...

For sanding? I tried to make one from a high powered motor and some sanding bits, but that didn't work. I recommend a drill with sandpaper or sanding bit.
