Dude!! You got a 4000!! Welcome to the club. Know what to do when the tip hits something hard (think ceramic tile) and it goes out of balance? Know that big book that came with it? It's in there somewhere, make sure you blow it out with your compressor after every use.

Another thing, the extension cable, you have to take it (the square part) out of the sleeve & grease it, don't and it gets hot & snaps. No, I didn't do that, yet.

I usually read the manuals. Learned that in the army, then they dropped everything down so a 5th grader could read it, pictures & arrows, no more good explanations.I've had a B&D wizard for years, that's how I found the access to less expensive accessories. Then I ordered the 4000 when we started the house & have ordered each thing as we need it, maybe that's why it's taking too long, keep waiting for tools! Oh yeah, then there's that woman that keeps changing the paint color at the last minute, then she yells that she has no say in what goes on!

Ok, one of the places to get Dremel stuff is Widget Supply company: http://www.widgetsupply.com/mm5/merc...vc?Screen=SRCH
Also a good source for finding out what your bits are for. Did you know there are Carbide Steel bits? Oh, when they say "compare to Dremel #xxxx9, you really should, thought I was getting a steal, 12 collet wrenches for $10-, yeah, they don't tell you they don't have the mandrel screw bit on them.

So, I'm going around town this week, doing things normally like going to Costco for fruit, cereal, milk, staring at the 27" Samsung monitors, the cheap little e-Machines & HP. Man that place is full of contrasts, $2600- TV screens then $800- computer/ printer/ monitor setups. Anyway, one thing I notice all over town is there's a shortage of fruit, meats, water, milk, you know, essentials. Then I'm thinking it's a supply problem, or the fruit farms in Cali are ending season. But water, milk & gatorade sold out, that's just not right. Then today I hear it on the radio.....


Burning Man is this weekend!
Nevada's third largest city took shape this week & the kickoff was on Friday. All the technology released during the summer will be there, 250,000 people or more, people running around naked & insane, music blasting from speakers bigger than our house!

If you've never heard of it, check it out here: Burning Man

I have a question for you all. I will get a GTX 460 this month. I am undecided between Gigabyte GV-N460OC-1GI GeForce GTX 460 1GB(This) and EVGA 01G-P3-1371-AR GeForce GTX 460 1 GB(This). They both have pros and cons. I can't decide. HEEELLLLPPP!!!

My main concern is the heat it will produce. I have 2x140 mm fan in the front. I have one 120 mm blue led on the side panel. CPU fan and heatsink blows upward out from 140 mm top fan. And rear fan as exhaust. Based on this air flow I have now which graphics card should I choose?

EVGA has free boost on their website. It flashes card bios to superclocked values.
Gigabyte has two fans on it. That means it is going to be silent. (so I think.) I have been reading the reviews and benchmarks everywhere. Everybody loves these cards. As always I am open to any suggestions, critics, and recommendations.

P.S.1:ATI cards are out of the questions and I don't think I will SLI these as my current mobo is not compatible with NVIDIA SLI. (only XFire)

P.S.2: Tech support is also important in deciding which way to go. I mean do you all have any stories involving their tech support?

IMHO, EVGA is the only manufacturer to buy nVidia cards from. Legendary support, upgrade program and lifetime warranty. If I ever build an Intel system, which is unlikely-never say never; I know, I'll go with EVGA cards. Just like I only buy XFX Ati cards for the same reason stated for EVGA. Gigabyte has good stuff there's no doubt, but c'mon, two year warranty? Shoot!

Well said. I am aware that EVGA has lifetime warranty. I know the dilemma looks like no brainer but I still have doubts. Thanks for your opinion.

That's a sweet cut..You inspired me Rockr69. You have the sweetest straight cuts Dude. What is that last one that you cut? The smallest one. What is that one for?

Here is a closer look at Rockr69's Great work

Yes Sir, you said it. I wouldn't get an Nvidia card from anyone else. Sure the first two cards I got were duds but the one sent back to The Egg came back in the same series (serial number line) & it runs warm, notice I didn't say HOT!!! My 480's don't run hot and I haven't even put the high flow brackets on yet. The one I ERMA'ed to Evga came back with a totally different stepping & series, when I stress test it, no matter where I place it, it won't go over around 80c depending on ambient.

I even had doubts that the card wasn't a bit faulty but when I e-mailed Evga tech support & told them it was hitting 95c they insisted I send it back & I didn't have to until they sent me one first. Now with two in SLI, man there isn't anything they can't handle & the fans never increase speed! Quiet & cool, maybe I'll overclock them after we move.

Ok, since we're on the tool subject. One thing about the EZ lock diamond wheel, just notice when you get one that the package says "Tile" on it, there are different blades for different materials. I'll never say you shouldn't use one on metal but just know it's intended for use on a material that keeps cool when you cut it. It will zip through sheet metal at 30,000rpm but will have some effect on both the blade & the metal. The blade will wear a little faster & the metal will get very hot! I was melting an aluminum threshold with one last week. Nuff said. Now, here, using the standard EZ lock cutoff wheel on an American Steel nail is Chris making sparks fly!

It's a custom HDD cover. I don't want it to be a spoiler, but I'm sure the owner will post pics when he's got it installed. As for the cuts, I cut each piece a little big then clamped my dremel on the table with the cutoff wheel facing me and used the side of the wheel to grind to the line. There's a lot of hand work in those three pieces. Like I said earlier, it's a labor of love.

Your piece is sheer beauty. Nice work! Is that the original material finish or did you do that?
