Being a goldsmith, I use Foredom and Pfingst (often disguised as a “House Brand”) rotary tools because they are the standard in the trade. But the basic unit now costs around $200, it is a bit high for most to start with. I have used a Dremel and a Ryobi to good effects, though. Were I starting with a limited budget,I might look at the Harbor Freight version. This would be for limited use trimming cables and their housings and some light rubber wheel abrasive grinding/ polishing.
