An amazing price, look how many sold and how many reviews there are.

PCB bits= printed circuit board bits. They are basically high speed rasps. Without trying them it would be hard to say what the finished surface will look like.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I've been thinking about trying to carve features into whirligigs... faces etc. I wonder if something like that would work or if it would be too hard to control by hand. The surface (like Charles mentioned) could be an issue too.

Barb and, Chessnut... This bit from Amana would do the trick for fine lettering and art work on signs.

Link wouldn't work for me, Gene, but I got to it. I have a couple bits similar to that. one is the SC50 by Whiteside, I think, then I have the line carver from Frued.

Paul, I think these would work with a Dremel, but I would have the "pen" attachment so you could have good control. I'm thinking if I were to need to use my Dremel for fine touches, this would be an amazing kit! (Using a Dremel is how I started, with the "pen" attachment shortly thereafter. Made detailed cork boards with it.) Actually, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of having the kit.
