Sears sells a Dremel-like tool (Dremelesque?) with the same
assortment of attachments. The model I have also has a slide
switch speed control near the tip so it can be adjusted as you
would hold the drill under working conditions. I have not
used it much for book work, so I can't speak to that. It
operates just like a Dremel, but cost less, if I remeber correctly.

By all means leave the road when you wish. That is precisely the use
of a road: to reach individually chosen points of departure. By all
means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and
well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
