This will be my first Dremel tool as I am starting to get into wood carving projects.

Initially, I thought about drills but then came to know it would be better to have a Dremel like rotary tool for engraving, polishing etc

I heard some good things about Dremel Lite 7760 & 4300 but thought to ask some pro as always I don’t want to waste my hard earned money

I like to know what you guys do prefer cordless or corded? Besides, I can’t decide how much voltage power and variable speed(rpm) enough for standard carving tasks

Do I need to buy bits separately?

Would greatly appreciate any advice, Thanks

Corded for sure, unless you have a need for it to be cordless, I like my Proxxon MicroMot 60/E, I had 3 Dremel's before that but they all burned out so I went looking for something better that was still affordable. You'd need a transformer for it as well, NG 2/S, I'd also recommend getting one with a toolless collet, makes swapping bits much easier. As for bits, burrs and other consumables, Dremel has some okay stuff but I think they burn up quick, there are more specialized wood carving bits/burrs out there that I find tend to last a bit longer, most mine are Kutzall.

I'd recommend starting off with a cordless Dremel to see how it goes...depending on the size of your project, of course. if you are going to be carving totem poles then a Husqvarna or Stihl saw may be better! If you outgrow the Dremel, it will still be there for fine detail. Also from the Dremel stable is the butane powered soldering iron/pyrography set which might also be useful to you. It's also excellent for fixing heat-shrink tubing in confined spaces, and of course it doesn't need a power supply!
