Maybe a few Larry but the difference between the roughly 3 amps that the Dremel needs and the 5.6 that the Colt needs and the roughly 7.5 that the DW 611 needs should tell tell you what the difference is. The Dremel will be pushed as well as the need for 1/8" shank bits. The Colt, Trend, and DW 611 are actual routers, not carving tools that are able to use 1/4" shank router bits. It does seem to me that Steve Latta with Fine Woodworking uses a Dremel with plunge base for inlay work but I think there are more options than that.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
