Real gunsmiths love Dremel tools.  I know several who have made a lot of money fixing up some shade tree hacks screw-ups.

Gunsmiths should sent the president of Dremel a Christmas card every year in thanks for all of the business his products send them.

Nothing more expensive than a cheap fix.

Fortunately I've only experienced that once.  A guy really screwed up a tang sight job for me in 1986.  I finally got it done right by a very good smith here in Chino Valley, AZ about six weeks ago.

 

I worked with a man who managed a sporting goods store where I worked.  He Dremeled the bejabbers out of a lot of guns and ruined a rare high ticket rifle by putting scope base screws on incorrectly and damaging the bolt and bridge.  I also saw him try to drive a front sight out of  high dollar semi-auto pistol from the wrong side.

 

Now I double check anyone who even glances at one of my guns.

I saw a Remington 700 that had been clamped in a 6" Machinist vice to hold it while scope bases were installed.

The stock had some interesting "finger groves" which were deep enough but they were in the wrong place.
