Are you sure? I have a less expensive dental lab quality 30,000RPM model and I love it for detail work- especially sanding in tight places. They are not power tools, but are great for finesse. Maybe you should give it a little more time.

Yes, I’m sure Donna, the gourds have a super tough skin, almost like arborite and this is just too expensive to burn the motor out. Too bad the Dremel wasn’t as quiet but at $99 twice per year, they are more to my liking.

Wow that looks like a space age tool Jordon,very cool
I have the older style Fordom and it has worked great(until I dropped it off it’s hanger)
If anyone will put it to good use it’s you my friend.

I would like to have one of the dental type hand pieces for etching glass, but, like Jordan, I do like my dremel motors.
I use them for a variety of things in addition to carving, like cutting off long screws and nails and, yes, even engraving glass with the right bits.

I too use my Dremel: a rotory and Stylus, but I prefer the Stylus as it is much quieter. Only the battery doesn’t last as long as I’d like. My Foredom’s flexible shaft started to make rattling sounds and the outer shaft came off too. So that’s out of commission. So i’ve been using the Proxxon grinder and the power carver, both of which work great. Only they get too hot too soon!
Donna, I’ve thought of those wired drilling gadgets dentists used on my teeth and thought they might be great for the detail work I do. What brand are they and where did you get it? I sure would like to have one!

Sorry I misread your post I thought you were buying it not selling it. I guess it’s just that old grey matter fading a little more. :))

Haha Jim, sometimes you have to try it out yourself because any company will tell you their tool is for you. Gesswien said no micro motor would accommodate me and I should have taken their advice, but I didn’t and now I have a lovely piece of machinery staring back at me, LOL!!!!

Paul- I have a Buffalo that was sold by Woodcraft for a while years ago. I don’t use it very much but it is certainly nice to have it when I need it. I think it was around $250.
