    Default Rotozip or 365

    Hello fellow, hard working, underpaid fixers!

    Can anyone advise the pro's & cons of these tools please.
    I'm looking to purchase a Rotozip asap but unsure as I've been left frustrated by tile drills soooo many times.

    Not had any probs with my Rotozip but these are different to using hole cutters though..

    Hole cutters are just that and are designed to cut quickly and to the exact size you use..

    A Rotozip is a free hand machine more for shaping curves in tiles and other materials that a hole cutter will not do.. So in theory you would have full use of both hole cutters and a Rotozip.. but if you only want it for hole cutting then 365 drills is your best bet..

    If you can hang on mike.. Rotozips are being phased out and bosch who did the rotozip are bringing out the GR30, new design/new machine..
