Went in the store with the thoughts of getting a back up flex shaft for the old dremel I use almost every day. The clerk took me to the dremel display and pointed to the shaft which had a price of 31.98. He asked if I also needed the grinder also. No , mine is good. He says for less than twice as much as the flex cable is you can get the whole set for 59.00. Actually we went in the store to buy an up right deep freeze. Then after getting the deep freeze thingy squared away went to look at the individual dremel pieces. The bits in the sets are in my opinion just junk but I could sure use an extra dremel hanging next to the one I use all the time with a different bit....This is a good buy for the set for just the grinder is 59 right now. I know lot of you would not want these in your tools. Thats okay. Oh for your info if you have a flex shaft on yours , using some wheel bearing grease pull the cable all the way out and coat the shaft with the grease, not a lot, just be sure to put some all the way down. Then drop three or four drop of 30 weight motor oil in the top of the housing and slide the cable back and forth a few times before screwing the shaft back on the tool....if you put any more than three or four drops on the entire shaft, thats too much and might leak on to your hand when running the tool. My shaft is 20 years old and still working but has started to vibrate in the middle of the shaft when on... comparing to my Foredom grinder, the shaft wore out in about three years.....I forgot anything that turns needs some kind of lube. Now just because I been around car mechanics most of my life and done a lot of it myself I should have known better.....
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
