As we all like to say, YMMV.

My two cents worth of advice: Be careful with the wire wheels due to the wheel flinging loose wire "missiles" in every direction. Wear good eye, even full-face protection. Be aware that the tiny "missiles" from the Dremel models can end up on the floor in "stealth mode," waiting to attack bare feet, weeks, even months later, somehow avoiding detection, defensive sweeps, and proactive vacuuming.

I know this because Mrs. PB got one lodged in her foot (it was painful, and she was not happy), after I had sworn off using them six months prior. I've even found the wires embedded in my work shirts and socks after running them through the wash. I feel fortunate to have never had one in my eye.
Dreaming about riding in NH's summertime while enjoying the GA coast for the remainder of the year!
