I have to ask why you feel you need a variable speed?
I've had my dremel for over 10 years now, never felt the need to vary the speed once i start using it.

I would suggest you start with just the tool. if you find you need a variable speed later, all well and good.
Bear in mind that almost all you tube "instructional" video people rely on sponsorship of the tools they use.
Personally I cant see the need. If you slow a dremel down it stalls and overheats the motor, if you make it go faster than the cutting tip was designed for you just burn up the tip.

I've abused my dremel on many occasions, trying to make it act like a grown up tool, the tips have always failed with my misuse.
