Great Barr?? Do I need a passport?
I have a 4000, so far I've had 3, my first one my farther borrowed and needless to say had never returned, so I ended up buying a new one, then ended up moving and got stashed somewhere, needless to say at my fathers too. So I ended up buying another cause I couldn't put off all that needed to be done, so I got a 4000, and this one is not leaving my sight! I ended up doing a few things with a friend and he started falling in love with it, but he ain't getting it! So when we went for a trip to my fathers I looked around and sure enough I found my other along with all my bells a whistles, so when I brought it back I sorted everything out and gave the old one to my friend with a couple extra toys, I thought he as going to faint. The next week he went and got a set of cutters sanders and other things. I'd like to get one of those stations not only the drill press one but they used to have one that was just like this, JR (Image removed from quote.)
that's a really cool storage/workbench solution... that would be fantastic for those of us who don't have an actual workshop to use our dremels in!
that's an interesting idea, perhaps using a few flex attachments would make it easier to switch tasks...
Wanted to get the Workstation for it, but never really found a need to justify getting one. if only could use this as a lathe of some sort for small hobbies like chopsticks. The flexible shaft heard has a problem that if it gets stuck on high speed, or hits a jam the shaft will break. Not sure if that is true or not, haven't heard of a safety break to prevent such damage should it ever occur.
I have three Dremels but I can't remember which ones they are. I know that two of them are small battery powered and bright blue. The other is corded and dual speed. When I get back from vacay here in Indy I'll check them out and post nomenclature stuff and images. (note to self: check Dremels when you get back from Indy)
it's been over an hour... I better bump it.
I'm getting huge Dremel jealousy now!
I think the term is Dremel envy

It didn't set me back any thing. Cause I don't think it's ever been made, I think it's just a pic done on a comp. but I sure would like to get my hands on it though! Whats the mfg of the lathe that only does 6"? JR
