    I saw this and Lowes has it for $30 and for some reason Amazon has it for $44, so I bought on a whim but its not a winner.

    The promise was a rotary tool and vacuum tool that cleared the debris as say you were engraving or grinding.
    It has the blue ring you turn to adjust that allows some vacuum to bypass and thus control speed. It has a few accessories and a clear guide for flat work. It fits most all dremel bits that are 1/8" diameter shank.

    In reality the RPMs were low (I measured 15,000 with my tach and a smaller Ridgid shop vac) and it had low torque.
    The hose - 1.25" diameter fitting - made it stiff and hard to handle.

    I think its going back.
    P.S. it did go back

    • A review of the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit
      by twistsol

      Summary
      I built my miter station last summer and used the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop Kit. The kit was just the starting point. 8 feet of track and a single flip stop didn’t meet my needs since I was building a miter station the width of my shop, nearly 24 feet. I added four 48” pieces of top track and three additional swing stops so I could have two left and two right. Finally, I added metric rules to the top. Total cost breakdown is as follows

    • Review of VIX-type Self Centering drill bits
      by LCHIEN
      I have always had trouble mounting small hardware on small wood boxes, with the hasps and hinges always looking slightly off perfectly square - particularly a problem with flat head screws and countersunk hardware which aligns the hardware to the hole location and centers on the hole.

      I'm talking small wood screws. I place and mark the hardware carefully and mark the center of the hole with a sharp awl.
      The problem comes about with small bits like 1/16 and 5/64 and 3/32"...

    • Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard review.
      by twistsol
      Since my new shop is in the basement, dust collection is a bit more important than when I had my own building and could do as I pleased in the shop. With that in mind, I upgraded the dust collection on my table saw. I purchased the Grizzly Overarm Blade Guard to use with the saw.

      First impressions were that this is an extremely solid and well built unit. It's made mostly of steel and connects to a 4" DC hose. There were a number of issues getting it set up and installed, and a...

    • Kreg KMA 3220 5mm Shelf Pin Jig
      by twistsol



      I decided to look for the rock bottom cheapest 32mm drilling system available that would let let me create real 5mm holes spaced 32mm apart, that was easy to use, and didn’t require a bunch of setup time. I’m really surprised at how much I like this little Keg jig especially when you consider the price of $34.99, and it has everything included. There were a couple of jigs cheaper but you needed to buy a self-centering 5mm bit to go along with them so they would...

    • Knife marking pencil Accutrax
      by LCHIEN
      Here's a tool I found useful for marking. Accutrax pencil blade marking knife.



      I have one I've been using on and off for a while. Its a fine pencil lead in the shape of a utility blade that can be installed in any utility knife handle and used with a straight edge, combination square, saddle square etc. to mark easily seen, fine lines on wood..

      Here's mine. I have not broken it, it seems to be quite sturdy. The sharp edge lasts a long time. I'm still on the...

    • Saddle squares
      by LCHIEN
      Hey, I'm sharing one of my favorite tools. A Veritas Saddle Square. Actually I have two in different sizes. This is the large size for marking 2x4 and 4x4 (shown on 4x4 here). One of those tools that makes woodworking a pleasure.



      They're great for continuing lines from side to side. And even side to opposite side.
      Works really well when the board has a rounded edge or some wane where the edge is not really sharp and square but the two adjacent faces are square to...
