Cheap rotary tools/dremels Answered

What do you guys think about these? Are they any good? Im talking about the really cheap £5-£10 ($10-$20) ones. I've always wanted a dremel but I didn't want to fork out more than about £10. Thanks - Josh.

OK, I've been doing some research and I've decided I don't want to spend more than about £20 (~$40) and I found this, and It seems to look very good. Its rechargeble, 9.6v, has plenty of cutters etc, the speed seems OK and its garenteed for 3 years. This is the manufacturer description:

The rrp is £18.90 and from amazon I would pay £19.30 shipped.
