This weekend I bought a Dremel. The 4.8v cordless. I finally bite the bullet and tried to hollow out an older peg head to fit the newer ball joints. And pleasantly surprised myself with SUCCESS! graduated.gif I almost could have poo.gif myself with excitement. I grabbed two more heads and started cutting and hollowing! I have a little talent there! I will still have to get a feel for the dremel and buy some accessories for smooth filing/buffing. Any suggestions on the best pieces for the very fine smoothing and sanding? I know all of the dremel parts have specific numbers. I want to get pictures as soon as I can to show my first attempts.

Congrats buddy! There is a thread around here somewhere that was discussing dremel bits for hollowing. I know it helped me a lot. I'll see if I can find it and post a link.

EDIT:

Here is where I posted several links about this subject to Kaje's thread:

The second link is a picture tutorial on this process.
