Quote from: dencins on December 25, 2012, 12:04:05 AMRayOne thing I would do different the next time is to make this vertical rather than horizontal. First it would take less space and second I could use the weight of the motor to maintain the belt tension. Now I force the motor back away from the mandrel when the belt starts to slip. I figure I could fasten a rod to the base of the motor and then hinge it to whatever I use as a stand.Dennis Hallworth

Quote from: EbayJay on March 04, 2013, 11:09:50 AMSo... w/o using a Dremel-type tool, how do you get into the small areas, (headset cradle, etc.) using a 6" bonnet on the RB60?

I was using an accessory that was pretty hard. The high RPM burned the plastic. Never tried that again.Oh, yeah. Nothing related to Dremel is good for polishing plastic. Drilling and cutting, yes. Polishing or sanding, no. Way to fast and too small of a surface area. I don't let my Dremel anywhere near anything plastic or bakelite.But, the Dremel wire brush does work well for polishing small unpainted metal parts.
