Oscillating tools aren't necessarily the go to for modding jobs given their rather rougher nature and larger size than rotary tools but for larger work and DIY jobs, they're very useful. Cheaper alternatives, such as those by Bosch and Draper, can be found but, particularly given this new range, don't have the range of accessories offered by Dremel.
