I have a vriable speed off brand that I got a harbor freight. I have used it for many things. I even have a router table and router bits for it. I made a bunch or really cool clocks one year as Christmas gifts. I have also used it to cut a barrel on a rifle. Turned out real nice too.

I would say yes , best thing about harbor freight is try it out a couple days and if you dont like it take it back , especially since they are right down the road from you

Yes, Harbor Freights Dremel clones or any rotaries can handle light grinding jobs. Do yourself a favor and visit Harbor Freight!!!!!! Be sure you leave enough time browse, I've yet to go into there without coming out with something (usually with a tool I didn't know I needed ;-)). Last time it was a watch case opener, for $6 (never thought about buying one of those before). Tools are super cheap, and unless you need a professional quality tool, they get the job done, especially for this shadetree mechanic. They have a large selection of a bit of everything, enjoy.

Pic is what Harbor Freight carries in rotaries.
80-piece rotary kit for $8.99, can't argue with that...
