The latest issue of Fine Woodworking has an article about eleborate stringing. The author maintains that The 35000 rpm of the Dremel, that he runs at full speed, on his Stewmac base with special bits that he discusses, give a reduction in tearout that a slower palm router cannot match. I guess ther is an up side to using a Dremel.
That Veritas is starting to look like a bargain. I wonder how many of the accessories I really need and whether it warrants buying the combo package or just the base and maybe the fence.

I've used my dremel 8220 with a 1/32nd micro carbide bit on Maple, walnut, cherry, butternut and birds eye maple so far. All of them had a small amount of tearout, even at 35K rpm. Nothing more than fuzzies that cleaned up with a sponge sander. There are some VERY HIGH rpm rotary tools out there that supposedly almost virtually eliminate
all tearout. The downside is burning of the wood.

The bits I"m currently using are NOT of the highest quality. Not bad, but not great either. Being relatively happy with the results thus far, I"m going to move up a grade or two and see how a premium bit works out.
