When I was asked to make a frame for Mark’s Memorial I wanted to do an inlay and I bought a router base that is used in the string instrument industry. It uses a Dremel of a Fordem as the power source. I select the Foredom option. That required the purchase of another new tool. So thats not all bad.
I bought the #5200 model
It contains two hand pieces, but neither of them would fit on the router base i selected, so I had to purchase a hand piece that fit the router base. The Router base MFG sells the Foredom hand piece.
The power head is 1/6hp and runs with speeds up to 18,000 rpt. It comes with a heavy duty foot speed control. It sticks to the floor and doesn’t move around.
It also comes with 3 DVD’s with master carver Frank Russell (a $29.95 retail value).
on power carving, but I haven’t looked at them yet.
The tool is very nice and has lots of accessories, available for purchase.
