Ahooooooooh?

Did you ever watch the TV show "Home Improvement" with Tim Allen? Ahoooooooh? I actually liked Al the best. Anyway, remember how terribly excited he would get over new tools? He would get this look of a mad man, a happy mad man, and make that funny sound that for the life of me I can't think how to spell it out right now, but it went something like "ooooh ooooh ooooh".

Well, I'm Tim at this moment - right down to the ooooh ooooh ooooh! It's bye-bye Dremel, helloooooooo Foredom Flex Shaft!! Yep. I'm a big girl now!

For those of you who are not familiar with a flex shaft, it is... well, like a Dremel on steroids! Basically it is a must have tool/machine for metalsmiths/jewelers (and other skills) that makes you more productive, proficient and... oooh oooh oooh, a big girl!

So today I'm giving Mark back his Dremel, rearranging my studio and setting up my new toy! You know where I'll be all day. Gosh, I'm just so darn happy that I could drill... or file... or buff... or sand... or...

Happy day everyone!

Ooooh, Ooooh, Ooooh! That show is so funny! I do watch it sometimes! I'm happy that you got a new tool! Ooooh, Ooooh, Ooooh! (It also has more of a grunt to it too)

Congratulations...you will love it. I just bought a Foredom TX about 3 months ago and I can't believe I ever worked without one. They are amazing tools.
