It was certainly a "Maker" holiday this year!


#1

Now… what to get from the credit on an 10" sliding compound miter saw?!? :slight_smile:

Edit: no, I don’t have kids… Legos are all for meeee!!! :squee:


#2

Two handed compound mitering!!! That takes talent. :wink:


#3

So you get one of those adjustable tool holder stands, set up a lead screw to regulate precise distances between the two blades…


#4

I say meld them together to get a full 20" mitre saw. All the construction workers and trades will be super jealous.


#5

Lego & power tools are two of my favorite things! Lucky you :grin:


#6

I got a dremel 4200 with the carrying case, all the attachments (or a lot of them) and 75 bits
I’m super excited to use it


#7

The 12". :slight_smile: It’s a great step up from the 10". You get a bunch more capacity and a better build quality too I think. I agonized over both when I went looking for a sliding miter. Finally decided the 12 was the way to go (if you have the room). It wasn’t that much more and the flexibility it provides is great - never go wrong going big :smile:


#8

Looks like my kind of Christmas!:smile:


#9

I see woodwork in your future! :grin:


#10

ok… maybe wrong holiday… I did buy myself a new cameo though. Personally I like the Ryobi line of tools - I have a lot of their 18 volt tools. Here’s to 2017 !!! ( yearr of the GF).


#11

If it didn’t come with one of these - pick one up (only a few dollars). It is one of the best investments for the dremel !


#12

Absolute necessity! :relaxed:


#13

Dido on that. Every maker needs a Dremel and every Dremel needs a hand tightening collet.


#14

I have had a Dremel for over 10 years but it never crossed my mind to get a hand tightening collet for it. That’s going on the list.


#15

Sweet score!

I got some more batteries for my tools, an angle grinder, LED flood light…

Yep this is the crowd for me.

A little jealous that you got Legos though.:wink:


#16

2 sets built already! My wife was even cool enough to get me Daphne and Velma separately with the Scooby Doo set so I would have the whole gang!

I’m thinking a new drill, I have an 18v Black & Decker that I like, but it’s getting old. Also considering a bigger sander (I just have a palm sander).


#17

I have been very happy with both Milwaukee and Makita brands.


#18

This illustrates so well that no matter how mundane and obvious something is to the poster it may well be useful.
I would have never thought that anyone who owned a Dremel would not have picked one up! Especially you, someone I know is sharp.


#19

Here are some great add-ons:

Dremel 220-01 Rotary Tool Work Station

Dremel 225-01 Flex Shaft Attachment

Dremel 335-01 Plunge Router Attachment

Dremel 231 Shaper/Router Table

Dremel 565 Multi-Purpose Cutting Kit


#20

I bought a new Dremel set (don’t remember the model) and my son bought the rotary tool workstation for me. Haven’t used it yet, but it’s pretty cool.
