What sort of dremel bits have you used? Used to do it all by hand but wanting to use dremel now. Tried sanding drum bits (too scratchy). Metal wire brush bits work ok, but Im wondering if there are better bits to use?

Found a guy in Te Atatu Peninsula that has every dremel bit imaginable and is cheaper than Mitre10. Testntools.co.nz

Left at the village roundabout, right onto Matipo, left onto 9 Renata.
All the stock he has is listed on his website. I have had to play around with a number of dremel bits to get a system.
