Bought a Dremel today for a few jeep jobs

I have no idea how I made it 35 years without one! I must have finished up 100 odd and end jobs today with that damn thing...If you don't have one, get one!

On another note, went to cut the passenger side plastic, covering the top shock nut... The freakin nut fell off when I went to put the wrench up to start tightening it, omfg. I knew we had trouble with it on lift install, but no idea it was that loose to possibly not ever on.

Synergy grab handles tomorrow

Ha! I called it Dremel, mine is actually the Craftsman Rotary tool too! Same difference. I fixed a few door jambs from when we tiled, fixed part of AC unit that kept destroying filters, fixed some hinges on doors, it is ridiculous

Dremels are indispensable!

Funny you mentioned that. Kept tightening and tightening... Tightening the front nut on my new shocks. Like WTF.
Once you get to a certain point, the shaft spins. Can see where you think it's tightened and it's not.

Got to go look at mine now

Unreal... petsmart scarred my older dog for life when she was a puppy. I have to hold her down and clamp her jaws shut to let my wife clip her nails. Might try one of those nail grinder things though. If that dremel gets away from you... ouch!

Its almost time for a new dremel. Had it 6 years and the motor is getting louder and the rpms fluctuate on its own. Done many odd jobs in its time from cutting to grinding to buffing and polishing. All the extra bits get expensive.

OMG try it!! My poor mutt was a rescue & is petrified of anyone touching her feet so finally a vet recommended the dremel. They tried to manhandle her & drug her for years, we did sessions every 3 days for months to no avail. Now she couldn't care less really. We started real slow with lots of treats and within a few tries she was over it. For some dogs getting their nails clipped is really painful, she would scream and cry every time & they always made her bleed.

My dremel has adjustable speeds, I use it on medium. I have slipped or had her pull her paw away & got myself, it never hurts or does any damage. I've hit her pads and she doesnt even notice.

You should try it!

Nice tool. How did the install of the synergy handles go? Did you need the Dremel?

They will go in tomorrow now. I know you do need it to cut a notch in the trim, not sure about beyond that yet.
