Favorite warnings


#1

The responses about the Taurus Ring Saw gave me an idea… In the
vein of “favorite tips”, what about “favorite warnings”? If
something happened to you that might help others avoid the same
mistake, care to share it? What’s sitting gathering dust in your
studio because it didn’t actually work?

every cheap drill-bit sharpener that ever came onto the market.

A bead blaster cabinet… because after repeated efforts to find the
right parts, I still can’t get it connected to my compressor! The
wasps have gotten more use out of it than I have, building a little
mud nest inside the port every year.

All the best,

Al, Sorry for the delay in responding. I have a couple of graver
sharpeners that never lived up to their name!

Cheers from Don.

I wonder how many of us like Don and myself have found graver
sharpeners to be one of the more useless purchases?

Another trap item was the cable attachment into the handpiece of my
very expensive (at the time) Volvere8 motorised handpiece. This was
wired directly into the micro motor in such a way that after a few
month’s normal use - like picking it up, using it, and putting it
down again - the wires would break. The supplier’s solution was to
try and sell me a new cable every time the wire broke - at a couple
of hundred bucks a time! In the end I took it apart myself and
soldered a small four pin ‘din’ plug into the internals and I haven’t
had any trouble since. Great little tool, just a lousy cable. Kind
