I'm really interested in this, but it seems almost all the images are broken. What a bummer!

I Just recieved the burs I need to finish ths maori/Moko and as you can see they are VEERY Small anywhere from .5mmwide to 2,6 mm wide, There are inverted cones, sawblade discs Pointes and barrels and they are all measured in .5 .7 MM to 2mm high ,All Very small compared to what I had that was sharpenough to cut butter. Tomorrow we'll see how steady my hands are and how well I chose the tools to complete this guy's Moko.

Sweet display of dremel tools Benz! I'm desparately in need of making some tool organizers/holders for my chisels and various bits. Those plastic ones you have look store bought though. I haven't seen any of those.

Yes, those little white dremel organizers do look handy. I have a variety of dremel bits, but came in a big organized set. I have been purchasing a few bits separately lately so that organizer would be great.

Oh, and getting back to routers, I ended up purchasing a Bosch Colt Palm Router. It's not a plunge type, only 1 HP, but it only weights 3 lbs.! Perfect for my use.

Great tool, Bosch is hard to beat
Looking for Bur organizers? It's Easy to cut a block of wood and drill a bunch of holes in it and stuff your burs in in Right? NOT. It is doable but unless you use a jig to get perfectly spaced holes you end up with a messy looking block of firewood, SO here are some of my favorite links:
OttoFrei
I really love THIS One from Florida jewelers tools because there is room to add holes ans STUFF!
More fromFDJ
And HERE from another Favorite of mine where I've spent lots of money.(they have the great "China" flexshaft machine for around $70{I've had one for a few years and it's still going strong})

Anybody have this?



I bought it because the head is a 2" triangle, thinking it would be good getting into small places. But, I've had no luck with it. In fact, it did nothing to the wood I was working on. Wondering if I got a lemon or if this tool is destined to become a $40.00 paperweight.

We bought this to help with refinishing some cabinets and we had the exact same experience. A whole lot of noise, but not a bit of sanding. I should have taken it back.

I've been carving some of my tikis way too deep and I have a had a terrible time cleaning up the wood in those crevices and have tried all sorts of things with not much success. My dad was cleaning up a piece of metal with a simple bit that held sand paper in his die grinder. I've seen and used these before in 3/32 and 1/8" bit sizes, but what he was using was a homemade 1/4" bit just long enough spin heavy duty sand paper close to the collet. The lightbulb went off. I bought some 1/4 cold rolled steel rod and cut a length long enough to reach the bottom of a crevice on a carving.







Use strips of sandpaper torn off of old beltsanding belts because the cloth is both flexible and heavy enough to handle the abuse. Run this slow in your Foredom and you can really sand deep into those pockets. Since it is only 1/4" diameter it can reach into some really confined areas. I plan on making several different lengths of these.

If anybody has other solutions to sand and clean up saw marks in those deep crevices please post them.

Where do you get those fancy things Benz? I dont think I have the equipment to make one - I definately have a couple of broken burrs that I could use if I could cut the slit lol.

I just used a hack saw. Nothing fancy. But I bet you can make some 1/8" ones using a Dremel type cut off wheel to cut a slot in an old bit. "did we mention it cuts?"
