    Hello. I am setting up to finally prepare some of the fossils that have been languishing in my collection in desperate need of exposure. I live within a few miles of one of the premier Devonian formations in the northeast USA, (Hamilton Group) of Penn Dixie fame, and I have always lamented my inability to pull out the best from my finds. I have begun to accumulate equipment. I will list what I have so far, and I am open to suggestions as far as what direction to go from here. Already have: A room, far from the rest of the household, where the noise from the equipment won't ###### everyone off. A garage based compressor, with a line running to said room. A micro dremel, (electric, which was much quieter than the pneumatic one) with numerous bits. A respirator Small shop vac, with various small attachments. An air-line bridge, with three attachment points, one with an adjustable gauge. A good sturdy drafting table, (got lucky on that one) A micro nozzle duster, self-constructed A CP9160 Air Scribe, with 2" and 2.5" sharp needles, as well as the stock needle. (Apparently, very similar to the ARO) Various artist brushes. Okay, here's where I need some help: I need a magnifier with light, and there's absolutely a gajillion of them out there. Suggestion? 5X 10X 20X? LED, Green vs. White glass, etc. I also know I should be looking into a pen type sand blaster, but I don't have the resources to sink into the system, the air handler, and the glove box etc, but would be willing to take suggestions for when I can afford it. Thank you for your help, Derek
  2. I have recently begun my journey into fossil prep, i'm using a dremel electric engraver as it seemed to be the best cheap tool. I have several ammonites from Yorkshire within nodules - these are very hard in the centre and consist of pyritised sediment. It is taking a very long time with the dremel using tungsten-carbide point, so just asking for any advice on how is best to try and get through these very hard bits. Cheers in advance!!
  3. Dremel engraver fine tips

    I just wanted to give a product recommendation here. I was looking for a finer tip for my Dremel engraver so I could work on smaller areas without fear of damage. I was recommended this guy (from our favorite auction site) by a fellow member. I was a little skeptical at first since it's hand crafted, but I figured hey why not, costs about what I spend on coffee every day. But I must say, this is one of the best purchases I've made. It outperforms the standard tips by several factors. Not only does it allow you to work on tighter areas, but it is very long, which increased the working distance by almost an inch. Also, since the tip is so small, it more easily took advantage of weak points in the matrix. The standard tips mostly pummel the matrix to bits, whereas shale has been sliding off like butter with this new tip. I highly recommend this to the folks on here who can't get a higher end setup. Makes a world of difference.
  4. Fossil prep.

    Hello, I would like to know if I can use regular drill bits on my dremel. I have a fossil that is currently soaking in soapy water to loosen up the sediment (likely made up of hardened clay with shell peices embedded into it). There is quite a bit of rock and I was wondering if I can use a drill bit on a dremel to shave off most of the rock. I do not want to chisel the fossil as I have tried this with similar fossils and have ended up cracking them. Feel free to critisize my methods as I am new to this and would like to learn.
  5. Dremel

    Hey all, quick prep question. I’m looking at buying this dremel set with these accessories. I want it for smoothing (removing pen marks) polishing and sharpening the tip of my TT. Would i need to buy anything else to do this or is everything in this set? This is for hard Yorkshire Coast material Thanks
  6. As I'm fairly new to prep, I thought I would "show my work." This is far from anything professional looking. I am also not using a good enough blasting medium. But it does look a bit better. This is a roller found from Penn Dixie. There are still some trouble spots, and some very stubborn stuff on the glabella that just won't blast away. I am using a mix of approaches from needles/picks, Dremel, pliers, and air abrasion. Total time about 40 minutes.
  7. Hello, this is my first time using a dremel to prepare fossils. I decided to begin testing the dremel on an enrolled trilobite with partial cephalon because I thought it would the easiest and it was already missing pieces. So far I am happy with the results, however, it's very difficult to get into tight areas with the factory issued tip (also I wish I would have started on a less anatomically complex position!) Anybody have suggestions on where to find fine tipped carbide needles for the dremel? can't seem to find any anywhere..Or other alternative methods ..I can't afford an air scribe right now, so that is out of the question..... Thanks
