Having inherited a perfectly good dremmel I could never justify the purchase. But oh, how wrong I was. I CAN justify it.
The stylus dremmel is absolutely brilliant.
First thing I noticed was no chord- that, combined with a light weight body instantly made it far, far easier to use. Clunky tools tend to sit on a desk as they are more bother to set up than its worth especially if you have to bugger about with cords. This baby has a docking station charger so its always charged and at arms reach, and I can keep my fave tips and spanner on it.
Within a few hours of receiving the gift I has used it to hollow out a toad miniature, make a zoat fit together, polish a c28 giant, sculpt the edge onto a resculpted c28 giants blade and make twisted rope wire for its handle.
I am totally gobsmacked how it has become my must have tool in one day!
Oh, and I made myself a new main double sided sculpting tool by grinding and polishing some brass rod and strip. Though brass is softer than steel, I wont have to sand back the rust to get a clean surface. I will give it a go and see if its better.
Back in mini land and it seems the imperial space marines and space farers from last month face a new foe....
Myfanwy the Cat vs. spacefarers. Whats her special attack move?
Yep, she sat on them. Kate took pictures of the carnage, lots of pictures. I guess she was too busy laughing to think about rescuing the minis.... Oh no, never mind the hours of painting I... Oh wait, she bought me an awesome Dremmel... Uh, carry on dear.
