Ok... I have a couple of fireman's axes that I wanted to polish and then engrave. My metal working skills are slightly more advanced than cavemen but not for lack of technology...I have all kinds of electric crap. Now for the DREMEL... These puppies have a really bad batting average for me...barely use it and when I do, the chances are that I will do something that will quadruple the time on a project from a mistake I made. I HAD the axe-heads looking good until I thought I might be able to grind off some metal flaws with my Dremel... in 30 seconds of time I wasted a previous day of work. Efficient--efficient in destruction. As for doing good--not so efficient. Why aren't there warning labels like: Attempts to use this device by an unskilled individual or on an item bigger that a pack of cards will result in uncountable man-hours to fix what you F up. Plan accordingly. Guys--why don't we just send a bunch of Dremels to Iran's nuclear program? I'm sure it will set them back at least a decade. And one other thing--I used a small buffing wheel hooked up to my Rotozip. Did you know that 30,000 rpm on a wheel made to go up to 4,500 rpm can make for some real fun? Things buff out FAST. (I put the wheel on and walked away for a minute to make sure it wasn't going to self destruct first.) Anyway--if you are a Dremel star show it... -OR- If you are like me and wonder why you just don't stick to sanding blocks and emery paper...tell us why. -AND- Ideas for Dremels? Pumpkin carving? Home dentistry? Divorce WOMD?
