Beware of large kit specials. They just stuff them full of cheap crap. The 
300 piece or so set I got was comprised of mostly cheap cut-off discs that 
broke under any light stress.

All you really need to start with a Dremel:
-The Dremel tool, variable speed.
-The "universal' chuck, which makes changing tools of different shaft sizes 
easier (small accessory)

- a basic kit of bits: cutting, piecering(various sizes, they even have 
small detail bits, and drywall cutting
-an amazing cutting disk: the re-enforced disks, they are grey, I think they 
have fiberglass
- a carving ball. It's a small metallic ball with a spiraling lined pattern 
on it, it really works great hollowing stuff, rounding edges, and making 
orbits for eyeballs.
-the flexible shaft (almost useless if you don't have a hook to hang the 
dremel higher, so install a hook on the ceiling or get a "tree".


3) I need a way to hang my chisels. All NYC hardware stores, sears, and home 
depot have failed me. any suggestions? I cant seem to find the classic wall 
solution anywhere.
Why not go custom? A long narrow shelf, with holes bigger than the blades 
but smaller than the handles could do the trick.
Otherwise, A set of magnets. See kitchen supply stores (especially for 
restaurants), they already have such a strong magnet system for kitchen 
knives.
