  1. Joe, I'm with you on the learning curve. I did get the rotary table and angle table and the slitting saw. The former because Danny told me to, the latter because KeithAug showed how to use it in building bulkheads with great precision. I have used the machine in rudimentary operations, but I've also made some cannon carriage sides in 1:96 using the DRO feature with great success. If this machine were a woman, I'd marry her! Tom
  2. Joe, Interesting coincidence, I followed along with your discussion because I also was in the market. And I came to the same conclusions as you did. I got the 5410 DRO, as I like to deal in millimeters. The DRO is a great attachment and very accurate; a huge addition for precision! Tom
  3. I'd agree with the comments that suggest the stand will not produce really accurate results. Suppose you're trying to make a pin rack for your belaying pins; the holes have to be evenly spaced and all in line. Can't do it with this appliance. If your tolerances are broader and you feel that with rope coils over the belaying pins nobody will see slight misalignments, the stand will do the job. I've had one for years and still use it, but I line everything up before hand; mark where I want the hole; turn on the dremel, and there's enough slop in the stand that the torque of the drill throws it out of alignment. Tom
  4. Well, darnit! Kat never offered me a 15% discount (I'm 74). But I'm certainly happy with the product. It's giving me an opportunity to be a lot more precise. TB

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
