Prepared for Anything
Not every woman has a Dremel tool in her closet but I think she should. I bought mine more than a decade ago for artistic purposes. I love to carve in wood and soft stone like soapstone and alabaster. The soft wood such as Basswood can be carved with a knife but it is so much more intricate when you use the small attachments for the Dremel tool. The Dremel tool has attachments that make that a breeze. But when I got it, I had no idea how many other things it would come in handy for.
I bought a mug and found later it had a little sharp edge at the base of the mug I hadn't noticed before. I could have taken it back to the store, but instead I pulled out the Dremel tool and used a grinder attachment. Moments later the sharp edge was gone.
Everything from ice to wood to pumpkins
Trouble with teeth
Most recently my husband had a little trouble with his dentures. He doesn't like to wear them everyday and because of that one of his teeth had shifted just enough to make the dentures hard to put on. We were headed to a dinner party and it looked like he would have to go without his teeth. He did not like the idea of that. I noticed the last time I was at the dentist that she pulled out a Dremel tool to adjust his dentures last time. So I got my tool out and ground down the smallest little bit where it was too snug and presto. It fit perfectly. I don't recommend not seeing your dentist for things like this, but it was an emergency. We went to the dinner part and all was well. On the way home my husband was singing my praises. He said "how many men have a wife with a Dremel tool in the closet?" Well, precious few, I guess. But there should be more.
We have used it for everything from carving the hole bigger to fit a new lock in the front door, to leveling a chair leg, to grinding a name ID on the bottom of personal property. It is a very handy tool to have.
