I've been looking at rotary tools lately, but I'm not sure which brand to choose. I'll be using it for little jobs, not everyday use. Anyone have any reccomendations! Thanks in advance.

Are you referring to something like a Dremmel?

I usually shop at Harbor Freight for things I don't use every day, I have their air drill, air die grinder, an electric DA sander. I still have my Snap-On impact and air ratchets but when they die I will probably replace them with Harbor Freight items.

Exactly. I've been looking at Dremel, Black and decker, Kawasaki, etc. Just can't seem to make up my mind. It would come in handy occasionally.

I'd go with a Dremel. I can't say I've used any other brand to compare to, but for as long as I can remember Dremel has seemed to be the benchmark.

I have had this style of Dremel for 25 years. I highly advise buying this model.

I have used it on almost every type of material and project. I even cut my casts off of both of my arms years ago. That is another story though.

I have already burned through two Dremels. Latest purchase was a Chicago Tool brand from Harbor Freight and Tools. Works and lasts just as long, at about 1/3 the price.

I have a Dremel for smaller jobs and a Dewalt 4-1/2 angle grinder that I use with cutting disks for larger jobs. The Dewalt has gotten a lot of attention lately and I couldn't be happier with it.
