My husband is an incredible man and he knows just what to get a lady for Christmas.
We exchanged presents early as we'll be apart for the actual day
(I am traveling home to Pittsburgh and he will be with the Schmill family - we have been trading off holidays but if I was away from my nucleus for the holiday of Christmas all I would do would be to sob: not good for anyone, I say)
and he got me a Foredom flex shaft.
Wow, is it amazing looking - and I know it can do amazing things: problem is, I have always only used my hands - only recently did I even get a drill press (which saves so much time and energy over a dremel) and so my question to you is this:
what is the flex shaft best used for?
Any tricks, tips, polishing advice?
I literally know nothing in advance: self-taught beyond a quick soldering class and some Ganoksin tutorials.....
please give me your ten cents, links, ideas and not-so-secret-secrets!
By the way, I am still responding to the mountain of digital missives that came this weekend: I will keep writing after I travel in the wee hours of tomorrow morning -
I am super grateful to all of you for the incredible support and advice you showered me with and 'thank you' is muted and weak compared to the vibrant passion I feel for your generosity of spirit and time.
