Lots of ways to do this from Ghosties professional model thru air grinders
and routers etc to dremels,all have pros and cons.I just happened to use what i had in the drawer.I personally think that 30000 revs is too fast,but if the the bearings are good then it should work and it cost me nothing

I had a woodwork job, went out and bought a router and 'read the instructions' to find that it had been a tool post grinder.

Another day, my wife brought me a pitman driven and redundant dental drill from one of her surgeries. Sadly, she's no longer with us.

Perhaps the best of the trophies is her orthodontic kit with lots of wire bending kit. My wife found a use for the gold fillings which she had extracted! She melted them down and centrifugally cast them into a little ingot to wear.

So, Baz, I'm with you in your comments
