    I just added a new Foredom to my bench, after drilling some tiny, #1 screw, pilot holes; with a 19.2 volt hand held. Comes in very handy for modding small elec. assemblies, at the bench--wood, composites, or metal..

    It's that tool that can do everything, you can even buy hand-pieces to carve wood and plastic composites....

    Since the 60s, I used these at work grinding, polishing, high precision tools, and dies and molds. Great for grinding tiny chipbreakers in Carbide lathe, and milling cutting tools. If you have a cut or grind or mod to do quickly, just grab the handpiece.

    Foredom goes....where Dremels only dream, they could go.;) How's that for a Company slogan? If they start using that...:mad:

    As usual, make sure not to get any microscopic metal swarf into any sensitive electronics.:cool:
