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.
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
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.
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
