    Would a Dremel 4000 be perfect for little guitar projects?

    Many times I've thought I should have a Dremel for this or that. Would it be better to get a multi speed like the 4000? This is on the service award list at my company so I could get the 4000 kit for free. Anyone use the 4000 and love it?

    Enlarging the switch hole in a PRS Custom 22?

    I want to get rid of the rotary switch. What did you use to enlarge the hole? Many warn that a drill bit will chip the finish. Has anyone here done this with a tapered hand reamer? Any pointers to protect finish?

    Good transaction? Good reputation? Reliable service? I haven't used Pedals Plus+ before but they may be the only dealer that has the pedal I want in stock. Your comments would be appreciated. Thanks, John
