Went to an estate sale nearby and got this lightly used (or so it appears) Foredom rotary tool, with a lot of accessories and bits for $65. I have a Chinese knock-off model that I dont like very well, hope this is a big improvement, also got a few other random hand tools and a rubbermaid shop cart... apparently the fellow was a machinist, hundreds of metal working bits and metal stock and every kind if micrometer and measuring instrument you could imagine... @woodtickgreg you would have gone nuts...

Super nice! Now you can start making bone necklace carvings.


This is Louie da' Fish, a friend of mine in Hawai'i, making bone necklaces.

Congrats! You must be living right with the deals you find! If you think about it, when you figure out exactly what you have, perhaps you could put together a short tutorial. Chuck

Yea after looking at it closer, I think it has never been use, there are just some extra old accessories thrown in with it that made me think of was used...

Great score Barry! Be sure to buy some extra shaft inserts to have around just in case. They can break at the most inopportune time. I've got a glut - dremels, a knockoff, a few air driven, a foredom, and a pfingst, as long as some die grinders. Like the pfingst and the foredom the best - probably the freedom best as I like the foot control.
