Carving for smooth healing?

<< < (2/4) > >>

Sorce:
I did get the Dremel corded 4000!  I think it makes sense, but a photo may be in order.

However, the cut is so much cleaner with the Dremel bit, its not so much of a concern as before, the other bit would push away more than cut.

I do love this tool. I hope to get the little detail attachment. 3 foot extension and small pencil size gun. Looks more ergonomic for long detail sessions.

Any useful bits?   I'm using the 1/4 in cylinder now.

Thanks Sorce

As for bits for the Dremel.... Dale Cochoy who is on this board from time to time is a vendor of bonsai specific bits for the Dremel.
These bits will take off a ton of material quickly, in the wrong hands too quickly but you will learn. If you are interested try shooting him off a PM.

As for me, when dealing with old wounds if all I'm trying to do is promote healing and closure of the wound I prefer hand tools. The Dremel I reserve for carving. But it could be I'm not good enough with the Dremel.

Sorce:
Thanks Jay.

  Since this thread started, I have experimented with a razor pen and must agree, it would be much easier to use a grafting knife to clean up cuts.

This is of course, only because I can not yet invest in proper concave cutters.
I hope to get a Kaneshin round edge for spring! 
  ;D

I've been upgrading some of my 25+y/o tools with Kaneshin.  I've ordered SS wire cutters, new scissors, tweezer and a grafting knife.  These are really well made tools that I can highly recommend.  I first tried Ryuga's lg. wire cutters and was disappointed in performance.

Graham P. has a great video where he uses some power tools for a pretty awesome transformation

I can't remember if this one has been posted here before, but I remember it well and thought it worth watching (he also has a ton of other awesome videos).
