LOL, well not the Oscars type pictures, well, not even the Emmy’s, hmmm, what’s left? How about a two minute video for the Dremel company? I guess that’s good enough especially since they’re sending me the video camera. I think they came onto my website and thought it might be nice to show people how I use their tool to complete projects such that I do. I appreciate the interest from them and definitely have always stood by their tool ever since I started carving. I surely doubt that it will be anywhere near as good as the fellow who produces those wild videos for us all to laugh at, nevertheless, it will be kinda fun and a creative break from just carving.

Hey, here at LJ’s being in a tool video is better than being in a Hollywood movie any day!

You need to call in Stevemarin to produce it for you! Congratulation, Jordan! It is another great way of recognition which you really deserve! I hope you will show us all here at LJ’s for the ‘premier’. We can all say we ‘knew you before you were famous!’

a great honour! And boy-oh-boy what great publicity for their product. I mean if you can create the kind of projects that you make just by buying dremel tools? Sign me up.
(Ok. so I already have Dremel tools and have never made anything that even comes close to this.)

Anyway – congratulations Jordan on the recognition and the video camera.
I’ll be watching for you to walk the red carpet.

Sounds great Jordan. I look forward to watching it.

There should be some sort of community woodworking awards. Maybe the Woody? Oh wait, that one is already taken lol.

Wow Jordan, that sounds awesome…..Rotary tools are great….I keep mine on my bench ready to go and use it for everything from cleaning out a dado/rabbit….to shining and sharpening…and ..etc…etc. I go through alot of bits…especially the sand paper wheels. Your video will make for some great viewing….I am looking forward to seeing it.

My only problem with dremel is that the new models tend to overheat during continuous use. It seems to happen alot…..I had an old one that lasted for several years and barely would it even feel warm to the touch….the newer (model 4000) one I got to replace it lasted just 70 days, it would get so hot that I worried about the case melting. I returned it and bought a proxxon as I did not like how cheap and shoddy these new dremels feel…..sad in the fact that dremel has made a pretty decent tool for quite some time – not to mention that fact that I had to adapt all my dremel accessories to allow for the proxxon which doesn’t have the front locking nut.

Jordan, that’s great news. They couldn’t have picked a better wood carver to brag about their tools. Although Dremell hasn’t been my favorite power tool for my carving – too high pitched, too loud and gets too hot to use too soon – I have wondered how you worked with them. I wear ear plugs, safety glasses, a respirator mask and swap out tools when they get hot. You must be extremely busy, Jordan, but if you could shed some light on this, I sure would appreciate it.

Well, Dremel may not work for everyone but I have mine (3) running 14 hours per day so I never expect them to last long. The flex shaft keeps the vibration down for what I need. Ya know, years ago, thy made a heavy duty model that they sent me to try out – it was similar to the Foredom except it ran at 27,000 rpm. That was about 20 years ago and they’ve since stopped production, however mine is still working great and I’ve only ever had to change the brushes once and the shaft cable twice – both times I caught it in my jacket.
Not trying to sound like a Dremel commercial, it just works in my case.
Ah yes, Stevemarin, thanks Shelia, I couldn’t remember his name.

If there was an award, perhaps it could be called the ‘Dusty” because they sure do make a lot of dust! I could be on Hoarders with the amount of sawdust I have sitting in bags waiting to go somewhere….anywhere!
