I have found the sanding cylinders to be the most useful. Most of those other bits don't seem to be very effective. Even the Dremel brand accessory bits haven't been of much value to me.

The chuck accessory does a better job of keeping the bit straight to minimize wobbling.

I've upgraded to this:

https://www.amazon.com/Tacklife-PCG01B-3-7V-Cordless-Rotary/dp/B075N68KRZ/ref=pd...

The chuck makes it very quick to change bits, no collets to mess with. Cordless and it keeps a charge well. Smoother operation than the Harbor Freight version, less vibration.

Very handy and I've been using one for years.  I bought a pigtail, electrical box, a dimmer switch, and a grounded electrical outlet and made a motor speed control for mine. Wired the dimmer switch to the outlet to control the power to the outlet. Worked well for five years before the mini dremel unit gave up the ghost.  But for about $10 I'll just buy another one from Harbor Freight.  Very handy indeed.  You'll want to keep the plastic knurrelled nut by the drive tight to keep the chuck from wobbling.  Tends to loosen with use.

Mini Dremel Type Tool

Picked this up at Harbor Freight for under $10. Comes with a bunch of attachments. Its basically a one speed mini Dremel type of tool that is much smaller than a Dremel. My Dremel is very nice but its big and clumsy to work with in tight spots. For typical modeling tasks, I've found this tool to be very helpful.
