What model dremel or similar for working on notebooks

#1 Post by xsixt » Mon Apr 03, 2017 6:21 am

I'd like a dremel (or equivalent) primarily for notebook use, e.g. removing stripped screws, cutting tabs off SXGA hydis panels etc. Other things I might attempt would be chassis mods (Frankenpad) and other display mods (bezels etc.).

What models are members using?

My own short research led me to the following:

If Dremel, I'm not sure whether to go corded or cordless. I originally thought, something light and cordless. The 8050 and 8220 are best sellers on amazon, but maybe the 8220 is too big for notebook work?

Big corded options, there's also the popular WEN on amazon, but that's only 110V. There is an equivalent here locally.

I have a Dremel 400 XPR for daily use, as well as a smaller/lighter Dremel MultiPro 395 Type 5 sitting in a case somewhere on a shelf.
