  • Moose Antler:::

    I finally finished this project & it was something new for me. I did use the scrollsaw for a little bit of the cutting out around the head of the Moose. I couldn't do it right side up, so, I drilled holes for a method of dot to dot cutting from the bottom side. I had to turn it upside down, so it would fit under the arm. I used my Dremel Stylus rotary tool for rest of it. It did run the battery down fast, so I switched to my roto-Zip flex shaft. I have a question for anyone who might have done this type of work before. What can I use, other than sanding, to polish the inner parts & the picture of the moose & trees? I haven't used a polish with my Dremel tool before & I think there is some polish that I could use on it. Any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated. Thanks

    You can use a jewelers rouge. I do beleive there is a rock polish as well which may be less expensive. You might try bon ami a cleansing agent less abrasive than comet.

          Thank you all. I had fun doing it. Something different.
          MIKE--- Thank you for that info. I'll try the bon ami first.
          MICK --- The Moose Antler was a gift from a friend. He comes from northern Idaho & has a few of them on hand. He likes to give me things like that to see what I come up with. He always tells me he doesn't want it back either. He did give me some wood a couple of times & I did a picture for him & then he started telling me not to give it back to him. It's fun, & keeps me out of the bars, HA. Thanks again.

                    Nice job Perk! I'm not sure if how it would work on antler but Hut wax for polishing pens works pretty nice. If you have felt pads for the Dremel you could rub it in with that to get the heat that is needed for it to cure correctly.

                    In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

                    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

                        Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                        Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                        The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                        WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
