All good advice, thanks guys. I was pretty sure that some of you weren't using the shield, but then again it goes against the grain to ignore the Mfr. warnings on these tools. I guess they're just going overkill on this one as a C.Y.A. & to limit their liability.

I mounted the disc today & was surprised at just how "un-sharp" it is. It sounds like they sharpen up pretty easy with a round 1/4" file, though.

Ben, good idea on the speed control. I will have to browse back a few pages here & add it to the Xmas list.

Thanks!

I found a new link today to a place that has carving tools for wood or stone etc. They have a good selection of burrs too. Check it out:

So I discovered that my daughter is allergic to walnut. We knew she had a nut allergy - any nuts - including walnuts, but I never thought the dust would be a problem.

I had been sanding the pig for a while (see my thread), and the dust was going everywhere. In fact, my "shop" as it were, is really the "laundry" room. That dust was getting on the girl's clothes and making her itch.

I used a shop vac most of the time too... but often it just wasn't convenient to hold the vac and operate another power tool (sander) in the other hand. It was also VERY noisy. Also the shop vac isnt exactly hypo-allergenic. No hepa filter there for sure. Ony the guys from California need that stuff, right?

Anyway, I digress... So sorry for the cheap shot, Al baby, etc.

Well here are some picks of the PVC pipe I put in the shop ("Laundry room" dammit), to help mitigate the problem. And it works to a pretty good extent! The kid stopped itchin. I can get back to working on walnut.

from shop vac,


then goes up to pipe in rafters,


then across shop, and down to the device.


In this case a belt sander...

------------------------------------------------------------


I forgot - it cost about $15USD.

What is the best way to use these radial disks? The white and gray one next to the sandpaper flap.

Ben, thanks for the tool pics and especially the tool organizers!!

Would love to see any instructions on using various polishing discs, buffers and so forth... my Dremel kit has a bunch of these but I just haven't found a use for them yet... lol.

Ben,

After doing a few carvings now myself, I now know why you seem to have every tool imaginable set up for easy access on your workbench. I think on my last/latest tiki, I had every chisel, exacto knife, drill, dremel tool out on the bench trying to finish that sucker.

The reason I bumped this up was to add these pictures later and Now IS Later.
These are sandingMops and gold stars from
Klingspoors sand paper company, Look for Double Sanding Mops
http://www.woodworkingshop.com/001c/html/Catalog/Vol96PG_77-87.pdf These are expensive but worth 10 Times that when you start using them. They work so great you will wonder why I am sharing this time saving secret with you. Its because I want you to Quit all that hand sanding and get on to More Carving. I Know how it has saved Me tons of time! Besides I love you guys.
I have 5
