Thanks for the question… Finally I can contribute for a change… not
much, but just a little! . . Feel guilty always asking and never
I have two… The only name here is, Foredom. I have two different speeds
but both variable by a foot pedal. Max speeds are 15K and 18K really don’t
see the difference relative to cost and of course the 18k was more costly.
Problem that I wasn’t advise or ware of was the difference with bur speed…
there are High speed and I guess Low speed … the real difference is that
the high speed, which I purchased, cut pretty d… fast for a beginner… to
fast for doing cuts around prongs, etc. Also I am aware that the dremel
burs have larger shafts that do the Jewelers burs… Not a problem but you
have to adjust/key the standard Foredom head which requires a key
adjustment from one but shaft size to another . . bother!! Wish I would
have gotten a quick adjusting head on one of the Foredoms… lots of $$$
when getting started.
Tried several bur enhancers/perseveres … currently use only that ‘old high
school’ sports favorite, …Oil of Wintergreen… I’m sure there are some
who will recall!!!
Now if you are looking for cheap, And I mean cheap, Two end, polishing
tool, I can put you in business(as least here) for $50.00!
Look forward to hearing from others … particularly about head… would
like to purchase a ‘hammer head’ … understand this is the easy way to do
channel sets … I’ll just bet this gets attention as I have been advised
of many, many ways to do channel sets the EASY WAY… DON’T REALLY BELIEVE
THAT I’VE BEEN TOLD THE BEST YET!
Let’s here from the Pros,
