Great stuff so far guys, keep it coming…

On Dremel tools: Those of you who like to use a Dremel for light metal work, what do you find to be its limits? For instance, can it grind metal off at a reasonable rate? Can it cut steel rod or bar to size? Would you be able to grind a flat in round steel rod?

One woodworking jig involving “pseudo-metalworking” I’d like to make is Derek Cohen’s carousel shooting board. He outlines how to do a lot of the metalwork pretty nicely in his how-to (hope you don’t mind me linking, Derek):

What’s a good vise for holding metal parts while you grind/shape them?
