    The short version of this story is that this is a great product for the money and an excellent alternative to a Dremel tool. It states that it is a three speed device, but I have found that it actually is a variable speed. You can set the speed dial to any position in between the L-M-H marks on the dial and the motor will respond accordingly. I bought one at Wal-Mart for $26+tax and have been very satisfied with it. B&D includes a few accessories with it, but I recommend picking up the Dremel brand accessories since there are more to choose from and more widely available. I have not found a Dremel accessory that is not compatible. Definitely worth picking up for several of the mods mentioned on this forum.

    I found this product because I'm a review junkie. I thoroughly research almost everything I buy which made this purchase kind of ironic so to speak. My wife and I recently got a new puppy and having dogs previously were looking for an easy way to clip its nails. I read reviews on the Pedipaws garbage of a product which sold for $20. One reviewer mentioned the Black & Decker RTX was much better and only $26. So my next visit to Wal-Mart I purchased one with the sole use being to do my dog's nails.

    Up until that point I never thought of buying a rotary tool. I thought they were gimicky. Now that I have my Tacoma and visited this forum I'm glad I bought this product on a whim. I've used it on several mods over the past few months including trimming my mud flaps, DIY shorty antenna, and fog lights to reverse light mod just to name a few. It also works well for grooming your dogs nails, you just have to get them used to the product before using it on them.

    Below are the links for Wal-Mart and Amazon where you can peruse the reviews there as well.
