  • Carbide Shaping Wheel

    I am not sure if anyone has tried this attachement for their rotary tools but I thought it deserved a mention and might be something you could use in shaping and contouring your intarsia.

    I recently purchased the Dremel Carbide Shaping wheel, (attachement # 801) from Walmart for $30.00 Canadian. The write up on the instrument reads - "Easily create compound curves by stroking toward or away from the operator"

    You can use it on wood, fiberglass, laminates, plastic, carbon filter, rubber and styrofoam. Suggested uses include hobbies and crafts.

    Overall I am pleased with the product. It is aggressive but adapts well to a light touch for less wood removal.

    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

    What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

    I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
