I went to Harbor Freight Tools and, for 20 dollars, picked up one of
those rotary dywall cut out tools. It came with 1/8 and 1/4 colletts,
and turns at 30,000 rpm.
These things are a LOT more poweful than I ever imagined.
The plastic base is rather flimsy, and It didn't last three days, but
other than that, I have no complaints.

I would like to try some wood carving with a router (signs & such) but
I'm not sure what kind of router would be the better choice. I currently
have a Dewalt 625 (3HP plunge) in my table but I was thinking something
smaller would be better for carving out the lettering or doing more
detail work. Grizzly has a 1 HP plunge router for $59 or would a smaller
fixed base router be better? Any help or advice would be greatly
appreciated. I have no real artistic talent so I would be using
templates or something similar.
