    Why I ask is that I'm looking for a drill type cutter that would suffice in my needs just not sure what tool wood would be a good all rounder I'm

    But need something that can cut intricate . Any help or advice would be greatfull

    A router similar to the one featured any good?

    They're a bit like a profile cutter/milling machine for wood and you could cut 3D detail/relief into your work....

    Thanks zaros
    They are ok for certain abilities but hard to view where I am drilling or. Cutting but was thinkin more of a hand held craft drill tool maybe. My dad had a dremmel type tool when I was a kid they look similar to a hand blender shape that can be angled for tight corners . Maybe I shud look more into craft wood turning shaping type outlets . But appreciate all the good advice given by fellow members ;0)

    I have no idea of the cost of a Dremmel in your neck of the woods, but here they're...HOW BLOODY MUCH!:Jawdrop And you don't even get any tools with it. They're sold separately for...HOW BLOODY MUCH!:Jawdrop

    However I bought a truck load of tools, some years ago when we bought a wooden shed to live in, and although I had toyed with the idea of purchasing a Dremmel, I thought the money would be far better spent on some other device.

    A couple of years ago I happened to drop into Lidl to see what they had to offer in the way of hand tools. Well now, what do you know, they had a Parkside product, including carry case with full range of accessories for €60.00. which was a saving of €80.00 on the Dremmel and accessory kit.

    So I bought it.:)

    And I still haven't used it yet.:D

    If these lovelies are to be the base templates for future multiple 'cut outs'... then it might be worth making enquiries to a third party about laser cutting. They would take your templates and cut multiple copies from the substrate of your choice.
