  • Got my dremel flex shaft!

    I got my dremel flex shaft last Monday but didn't even open the box until yesterday!! Finally got it all set up. I took everyone's advice and got the keyless chuck and a foot pedal. I think I'm going to like this!!!

    Nice set up there.One thing I noticed was the support for the Dremel,I have mine where it is adjustable in that I can raise or lower it when using different bits.You could use a small link chain.

      You have a similar set up to me Cathy only you are much tidier than me. Must be woman thing. I wouldn't be without my flex shaft it makes life a lot easier to get into those arkward areas. Haven't got the keyless chuck yet but it's on my shopping list. Nice tip about the link chain Tony, I'll get on that.

        I like your setup! the shelf bracket is a great idea. My shop is in the basement so I just have a screw eye in the ceiling joist.

          I saw a video where a guy was using a mechanism to support his Dremel. With his support he was able to lower and raise the Dremel similar to the way a window shade works. I thought that was neat but I haven't found out what that device was.

          Does it sound familiar to anyone?

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
