I also did not realise the usefulness of them until I got one. Think the two things I find most handy are the cutting wheels for shortening hard small ss screws, etc and the grinding wheels for preparation of small nicks for painting or filling.
Especially like the warning in my Dremel manual This product is not intended for use as a dental drill or in medical applications. Serious personal injury may result.
However, in dire circumstances who knows - now I wonder if they do a trepanning cutter, bit of urgent brain surgery required /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif?
Blimey, I think I would have preferred to keep the rings on rather than have it attacked by a Dremel. In any case would'nt it have been kinder to throw him overboard and let the freezing water temp do a bit of shrinking?
I don't have one either. And SteveE took the piss because I had a woodsaw and a set of chisels in the lazaret. He'll be laughing on the other side of his face if he gets hit by a cannonball and there's no-one there to amputate his leg and carve him a new wooden one...
