  • Fret work bowls...kinda

    Since there appears to be a lot of interest about the fret work bowls in the Saratoga Show thread I thought I would post an article I found. It sure does open projects to new dimensions.

    Interesting concept. I have seen things like this done with Ostrich eggs. Thanks for sharing the link with us.

      Very cool site Scott, saving that for later. Bet that dental drill works out better then the dremel (no pics as I wasn't happy with how it came out) I tried it with last year after being inspired from my first trip to the show. Glad you and Bruce made it all the way back alright.

          Don, What was the con with the dremel? Do they run too slow compared to the dental tool?

            Rob, my friend who does this kind of work says the Dremel is too heavy and bulky for the fine cutting required. Dental tools are much smaller, lighter and precise.

              If you are going to use a dremel tool you need to get the flex(ible) shaft option...it makes a different tool out of your dremel.

                The dental handpiece spins much faster (no-load speeds up to 400,000 rpm!!)and the burs are smaller and made of carbide (diamond coated is also available) The ability to grip it in the palm or fingertips while drilling at a 'contra-angle' gives better control than when the bur is in line with the tool... these things make the dental drill superior for detail work.
                The flexshaft on a dremel improves the control for the dremel but it still doesn't have any of the benefits of using the dental handpiece. The speed is still much lower, you are using steel cutters that dull faster and you cannot grip it as near to the bur and the degree of control is not as good.
                (Note, though, that hearing protection is highly suggested when using the dental handpiece.)

                  Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                  So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                  I like the fact...

                  Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                  Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
