Seriously considering getting one of these for my paints :-p

andygorn Isn't it either baking soda or bicarbonate of soda which makes superglue cure quicker? (N.B: I've not tried either, so I can't accept the blame for any weird/hazardous chemical reactions).

That's it! Thanks D24, I can finally have a model or two that will not have to be broken apart because they dried poorly while I was chasing after my little girl!!

And on your PSA... I whole hearted agree! Buyer beware while using this type of product, it's a hard lesson to learn

+1 Rep for the PSA: wish I would have gotten that bit of advice back in '99

I am, Rameses!

I know the glue drys pretty quickly anyway, but I have to sadly admit I have a 3 year old that goes into over-out-of-control-mode the second I sit down to model.
I've had to break apart plenty of models so far because I had to set it down to chase her while the model was drying.

Thanks in andvance.

Dusty's Corner 'Ello,
So here's finished conversion with an adaptor for the base.


Tip in dremel. Pipe to be drilled on roller-rack. Different adaptor in base.

That's another adaptor for the adaptor (what?). And to show that it lines up;


And this is what that adaptor adpator is for, to spin with the sanding bit (should allow for more pressure when sanding whilst keeping the tip striaght).

Whatta think? Anyone gonna try making it, or just buy a proper one? Got show racks if anyone's interested seeing them.

Fitting Dremel to Pillar

Ok got a mad one for ya! You know how things that should be straight forward and simple aren't? Well I got this pillar mount for a dremel. Thing is, the dremel doesn't fit! I've got two dremels; one on a flexi cable that I made an adaptor for. In the pic it's the donut shaped thing resting on the base plate. It has a slit in it to allow the clamp to tighten and hold it. Worked pretty good until I got superglue all inside the dremel and had to remove it's safety cover to save it (still got no cover). It can no longer go in the pillar without the cover. So #2 Dremel will go in it.

It's already had a bit done, a ring added and cut out where the vents are (don't think covering them over would be a good idea). In this pic you'll see the problem, if it went straight in, it would wobble around.

So now needs a washer to make the contact nice.

Then some putty stuff in from underneath (vaseline around the inside of the pillar mount ring first!), let it set for a while, then twisty pull it out. Make sure the clamp is open, so that after all your stuffing, when it comes to clamping down, if will definately grip.

Yeah looks horrible. Added some crazy pink creamy hardener to the mix (dunno why). Gonna let it fully set, then add some more, them sand & clean it up.
Or the alternative is; just buy a dremel and pillar mount that match!

Hope you found that useful,
Dusty

Dremel Stylus, Cordless

Patented nose tip control - On/Off at front of tool for one handed operation

Variable speed 5,000 - 25,000 RPM for superior performance and control

Pistol grip design for outstanding balance, performance and precision control

Docking station - Holds the Stylus during projects while charging battery.

Soft grip housing for superior comfort and control

7.2V integrated lithium ion battery - Holds a charge 6 times longer than Ni-Cd

Tool will hold a charge for up to 2 years

No battery "memory effects" - Can be recharged at anytime without reducing the charge capacity

I own one and I would love trade it for anything. The only issue is I can not fit anything that requires the screw on nose which has a few items that would be useful to us.
