All comments above are excellent. I use mine quite a lot as it removes waste rapidly. But because it does remove wood very fast, I learned the best amount of pressure to apply on the wood by using it. I’d like to add a couple of suggestions. Wearing protective gloves could be a bad thing IF you allow your gloved digits to get too close to the running burr. I the saburr catches the glove, the result could be very bad. Secondly, be sure to hold it firmly with BOTH hands and move it always from left to right and not back and forth. Do not move it from right to left as it could run away or jump which could damage your work piece. I enjoy and use mine a lot when I need to remove wood quickly and accurately. It is easy to control especially with its adjustable speed. But as in all power tool, using it safely requires full attention/concentration when you have it running. Stop the unit and let it cool when it starts to get hot. If you are right handed, hold the long neck with your left hand as if you are holding a tennis racket and with the right hand around the body where the two pads are. I apply a firm grip with both hands and have had no problem controlling it. I prefer it over the Dremel – stalls and get too hot easily and waaay too loud!
