  1. I remember buying one of these for a small company I worked at, was about 600mm square and 150mm deep, came on a small pallet and we had to carry that up three flights of stairs... nearly killed us.
  2. The 3mm cutter has a relatively low surface speed, if you are suggesting ‘a mm here or there off’ I think that’s actually quite a large bite. So it might work for you. I found the dremmel sander to be less effective. If you want to go even slower you’ll find a normal cordless drill is about 1/5 the speed of the dremel. You could tie-wrap the trigger and use it bench mounted with a £10 set of sanders/reamers to experiment with. shame you’re not closer you could have borrowed my toys...
  3. I used the 3.2mm reamer like this, personally I found this made a cleaner hole and cut quicker than any of the drills I tried. You do need a steady hand though and to know how fast to feed and when to stop! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07CKT7C77/ref=asc_df_B07CKT7C7758497396/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22146&creativeASIN=B07CKT7C77&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309808827530&hvpos=1o8&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17217612327950104700&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006959&hvtargid=pla-474912480928
  4. You can pick up a Dremmel for less than £40 on Amazon, the dremel brand tools are really expensive but you can get A selection of other branded parts like this one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Accessories-Meterk-Universal-Accessory-Sharpening/dp/B07C1XLLXN/ref=sr_1_5?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1550174872&sr=1-5&keywords=Box i have only used a few of the tools so far but they’ve all been pretty good. I used the side of the smallest reamer on the high speed setting to make the pin clip holes and do the fine detail. It cuts well and the small amount of flashing can be picked off.
  5. if you don’t get a more confident answer I’m Happy to give it a go.
  6. What kind of information are you working with? Parts to copy or do you have basic gear data?
  7. I thought I’d take a look too, watched a few crawler videos, then a programme explaining the secrets of dynamo’s most famous tricks, and finally this restoration of a cleaver... What was the question again?
  8. Google some of the raspberry pi sad video recorders, would these work? What’s the size limitation?
  9. Perhaps a pearlescent coat backed with TS-93 Pure Blue, though the slight pearlescent appearance could just be the translucence and its just the photography lighting etc. PS-16 I think looks like a totally different shade.
  10. No, sadly not. Perhaps someone else with a PC will read this and check them out. I need to install google chrome on the ipad to do it but don’t fancy it right now , since it’s supposed to be pants..
  11. There should be much harsher penalties for these types of thieves to drive this behaviour out of our society.. just curious, can you do a google reverse image search and see if the pictures were someone else’s? I can’t do it on the I pad. Of course it’s not always going to be a scammer that uses other peoples pictures but might be a warning sign.
  12. Thanks and good tip with the Poundland ‘mecanno’ I think I’ll drop into one of those and see what they have!
  13. Looks good! Can I ask how you made the roll cage please? I’ve been considering getting a pipe bender and trying aluminium tubes.
  14. Have been offline a while and stopped all building work on my sand scorcher. Someone broke in last week through the back door, luckily I think I came home just after they got in as nothing was taken. Must have gone out the back as i was bringing the toddler in through the front... So I fitted a wireless alarm and some security cameras. Fixed the back door etc.. Police think they will most likely be back, unfortunately in the UK use of lethal man traps is prohibited.
