Im new to the forum, been reading up. And going to start my first projects, i have a dremel and all the main stuff for building. I did many normal MDF boxes. But ready to step up to the next level. Sick of having to find some with a rotozip to use. Just want to see what everyone has, what model good ones, bad ones. im thinking the rotozip revolution combo with the circle cutter, since that the thing i need the most. What you think. Hope to have a good fiberglass time in the next couple of weeks.

I would recommend buying a router. I have both and never use my Rotozip now that I have a router and a circle jig. MDF is pretty tough for the small bits of the rotozip to cut and it is easy to cause them to flex while cutting.

Unless you have a really high power, high rpm roto zip, I would suggest a router, its just way nicer, might be a few more dollars, but worth it.

You can make a cirle jig. Theres a post somewhere here that describes it in detail. I guess I didn't read the second question, but I would say have both if you plan on doing alot of this stuff. If your strapped a roto-zip will do the job, and I use mine all the time in conjunction with my router.

i have both, ,if you have a few hours to cut a circle have fun with the roto zip, , if you want a perfect circle in 5 min, get a router.

The roto zip bit flex's and end up doing the same quality cut as a jig saw in the end. . but for fiberglass box's, its perfect for trimming.

Plus with the router you can also do your flush mount rings, with rounded edges.
