I have been a memeber for a while now, but have only just got around to posting:...
I am English but have lived in Norway through marriage for a number of years,,,I have a lifelong passion for model railway`s..but due to illness am mainly restricted to reading and dreaming...That said my dear wife as discovered a bit of the Railway Bug! so she will be ,eventually building a small layout..with a few items i purchased on a recent trip to U.K.
My main question here relates to Electric Hobby Tools and especially PROXXON & DREMEL
I must admit to having little to no comprehention of hobby tools,other than what i have read and seen...so please bare with me..as i may not explain myself very well..
I often read that most of the dremel type tools are actually of only limited use when it comes to most modelling tasks,especially railway modelling due to the high speeds they run at, even at the lower ends? i.e. 5000-30000 typically..
I like the 400 SERIES DREMELS..but have always admired the PROXXON RANGE i do get a bit lost trying to get my head around 12volt versus mains..and even more so around the PROXXON 12 volt with transformer & speed dial e.t.c.
Can someone (Simply please) explain the pros & cons of the variouse types... and for example would one of the PROXXON 12 volt drills do most jobs for which it maybe called upon to do? or is MAINS the way to go..even though the speed seems to fast..in the main..Your help clarifying this situation will be greatly appreciated...
an aucillery question..does anyone know if PROXXON DRILLS will fit the DREMEL Work/Drill Stand..That at least looks better than the PROXXON DRILL STAND.Likewise can Dremel accessories fit proxxon drills?
i have several associated questions but will not be to greedy for the moment and give forum members a chance to answer the above questions,for which i thank you in advance
