reviews decent, and cheaper than the rigid one hone depot is advertising to death currently (and this one actually seems to have better reviews).
yes, I know made in china, it isn't as good as my $200 x brand, blah, blah. This is certainly not for a pro or a dedicated hobbyist, but rather average home owner guy who has the occasional use for small, misc tasks. $50 is what other paces are trying to charge you just for the equivalent accessories.

No need to apologize, same item same store a couple weeks later isn't a new deal, just a better (ymmv) deal than the one already listed. Regardless, thanks for the notice on the cheaper price!
If you don't want both, keep in mind the deals at Harbor Freight Tools: http://www.harborfreight.com/variable-speed-rotary-tool-kit-68696.html $22 http://www.harborfreight.com/variable-speed-multifunction-power-tool-67537.html $35
Obviously, $57 for both but if you look for the 25% off coupons in the back of magazines (Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, etc), it's the 'better' Made In China deal at $42.75!
In a recent magazine review, the rotary (Dremel-like) at Harbor Freight was a 4/5 - pretty good for the price. For the oscillating, one review stated that with the triangle pad, it was hard at times to get to the corners due to the shape/size of the Harbor Freight model.
Got the "Blue Hawk" rotary tool last yr at Lowes in the low $20's and have used the heck out of it. Fantastic product despite the made in China fears. Good speed control and ergos. I also have the HF oscillating tool and have used it on multiple occasions for plunge cutting. If I didn't have either, I'd buy this set in a heartbeat.
rsuaver said: Any coupons? Highly YMMV but I've used the Harbor Freight 20% at both Home Depot and Lowes. Really dependant on the customer service at the desk as they are the one doing the price adjustment for you. Normally, they will match as Harbor Freight sells the same type of tool regardless of brand name.
Note: This last Sunday's Parade in the newspaper had the HF 25% off coupon. Added bonus if you can get the to match. Good luck.
I got this for $9.99 yesterday in Georgia. I was going to be happy if the thing even turned on, but it actually worked great for cutting out some rotted door trim. Got a bit hot and had to take a couple breaks, but a heck of a deal.
