Has anyone tried using the Vacuum powered Dremel for carving? http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Tools/Pages ... cjlc_lVikp

Is it any good? Does it have enough speed and power? How's it perform on keeping the dust down?

My guess would be that this will be severely underpowered.....like near useless to guys like us.

I agree with Doh,

Thanks, that was what I was thinking as well, but thought I would see everyone else's opinion.
