I have 5 types of Xuron cutters that I use plus a couple of jewellers saws. I have a Nibbler that chews out little pieces, it was orginally for cutting brass sheet but it became blunt and I use it on plastic now. I have a Dremel with a variety of cutters, cut off wheels, saw blades and dental burrs. And last but not least I have an old cast iron pedestal drill that I use a milling machine for milling out frames and stuff.

Dremel do make the old style cut off disc which if pressed will break and on the odd occaison shatter. The disc to get is the fibre glass cut off disc. These don't break or shatter. Drilling a series of holes is time consuming and you still have to clean up the the holes after removing the piece. I use the the rotary cutters which if you are careful will remove the unwanted piece without having to resort to lots of little holes. Works in metal as well.
