Great tips! Review by T.

This is a great video. There are plenty of handy tips on how to use all the different attachments. I also love that the "correct" usage for a flex shaft piece is given, but also a "creative" way to use the piece is offered as well. These kinds of videos are very inspiring to me and make me want to step outside the box more and try new things.

A cure for "cold feet" Review by Georgianna

My husband got me a Foredom rig, and I had been a little afraid of it and intimidated by the array of bits and heads and all those mysterious small parts that came with it. This detailed tutorial made me feel as if I had a master metalsmith in my workroom with me, who was patient and who was able to anticipate my questions before they came up. Now, I am "flexing" my new-found confidence and capability with complex shaping and finishing. No longer limited to drilling and basic polishing, I am thrilled! Bravo.
