We held a studio open house over the weekend. I made several new
contacts and friends as a result. Thought this one fellow was pulling
my leg. He’s cleaning out his garage in preparation for a new cooler.
John works for a mortuary and is moving one of their DB coolers to
his place. DB=dead body… Yikes. John is a collector of “stuff” and
has this old dental drill that was looking for a good home. We
bartered a bit, I now have that drill in addition to a pile of other
items i.e. cutoff wheels, burrs, cratex wheels, saw frames, spatulas,
attachments and etc. More stuff than I can list. Spent a little time
this morning cleaning and lubricating the pulleys and hand piece.
Replaced the power cord. I’m assuming that I can add a foot speed
This isn’t a tool that I really needed but how could I resist. Yes,
I get to be a kid today digging through all this stuff. Now to find a
place for my new toy.
How many of you actually use these? Don’t think it’ll ever replace
one of my flexshafts. Repurposing old news is a lot of fun.
