    Geez Cheaps! It's only 75 feet to the house. If I can't make that then I guess I'll have to get one of them chemical toilet things.

    What you guys want next? Cable and telephone?

    So. I'm outside. Yeah the place with the sunshine. I'm Dremeling away on some stuff and had the most curious thing happen.

    I chipped a reinforced Dremel cutting disk. :jawdrop:

    [​IMG]

    It didn't break or shatter like the hundreds I have broken where they snap off at the hold down screw.

    Just thought I'd share that with you for a bit.

    I would recommend Dremel EZ Lock cutting discs. They are much stronger and last longer.

    The nails have to be brutally short because of a painful condition

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clubbing

    that renders the fingers useless. The nails literally cut through the ends of the fingers as they roll under.
    Just another gift from the asbestos industry.

    The EZ lock disks are identical to the authentic Dremel reinforced disks except they have a the metal connector built in the middle.

    I didn't know you did Warhammer John.

    The WH40K is just another item going up on my wife's eBay store. The Tau are up there now, this one is next, and the Space Marines and Rhinos go after that. Keeping the Orcs and Necromunda. I miss the old city skirmishes in Necro.

    They are so expensive though, I found that by using normal reinforced disks with a washer/second much smaller disk works just as well as the dremel ones that came in my kit.

    I live about 6 blocks from a Harbor Freight store. When I'm not cutting carbon fibre or just small stuff I have found these 1 1/2" wheels to work quite well.

    [​IMG]

    They retail for $5 with the arbor. HF also sells the wheels in packages without the arbor. HF does parking lot sales once a month in the summer and whacks prices insanely cheap.

    The Tau that are up in Marilyn's store, these Tyrannids, and the Space Marines and Rhinos are all still in the sprues un made. We have/had a Games Workshop store in Denver - scary place to go in. Lose a billfold full of money real quick.

    Now we are moving on to some of the Forge World stuff. It's bigger and nastier.

    Ah Necromunda, gotta love it, such deceitful gameplay and tactics with other gangs in campaigns, the bribery, the back-stabbing, good times. :thumb: *

    I almost gouged a chuck out of my forehead when cutting the hole for my rad with dremel disks, I was new and unlearned to the art when I attempted it :blush:

    *oh, gatling cannon heavies Cheesecake

    I used to wear just the goggles over my glasses. Then I discovered hot plexi on the face was not cool. Now I have a full face shield. I'm on my second one. The first one caught a dremel disk chunk just below nose level.

    Safety is good.

    I looked at ForgeWorld stuff. I really wanted to get a Warhound Titan and was sooooooo close to buying a Kroot Great Knarloc for my TAU army a few years back.

    I can also vouch for the EZ lock discs too. I won't use anything else. The discs last so much longer too.
