Question Feb. 4th.

Do you use a powertool ( like a dremel for example) for the hobby?

 

 

I have used a dremel on minis and terrain.

 

On mini: once I primed a metal mini but it got "frosted" I then used a dremel with a polishing tool on low speed and carefully stripped the primer off that way.

I acquired a dremel tool, or the cheaper Sears equivalent,  once upon a time many years ago...

We did not end up together happily ever after.

I remember turning it on once or twice.

I have no idea where it might be now.

(As it happens, this is the same answer I give when asked about former girlfriends)

 

I do have a foam wire cutter that I bought before the dremel tool. I tried to use to cut and create some foam terrain that I may still have a sample or two of.

 

While not mine I did borrow my fathers electric hand saw to cut some bases for some GW buildings.

I’d have to say that had the most successful outcome to date.

Dremel, battery operated toothbrush & you might say a old Samsung Note 3 that I keep near my hobby desk just in case I need to look up ref or something off the net. 

 

Pretty sure there might be others but those are the prominent ones.

No, it's best if I'm kept away from power-tools, I'm far too clumsy.

That’s me, too, although I am sometimes willing to put a hole in something with an electric drill. If it’s big enough and stable enough...

A hot glue gun. 

I own a Dremel, but it doesn't really get used for minis.

Yes. My Dremel & my hot glue gun get used quite often. I have a hot knife for foam & heat gun  that get use far less frequently; re, I don't do much large terrain pieces anymore.

There are a bunch of miniature power tools that I regularly ogle in the Micro-Mark  catalogs. Considering my level of power tool dexterity. I have resisted the temptation. I don't want to recreate the Texas chainsaw massacre.

I  have used a Dremel but not much.  I have used a hot foam cutter more to make 3d BattleTech maps.

I have used a table saw, band saw, and router to make stuff for the hobby.  Mostly it's for cutting and shaping bases for buildings or dungeon tiles or whatnot; or if I need to cut a bunch of dowels or something to the same length, then I'll make a jig.  But sometimes I'll cut out walls for a building or terrain piece from 1/4" plywood or 1/8" hardboard too.  I might even finger-joint them in that case.

I have a couple of dremels, a hot glue gun, a heat gun, and a little electric multi tool that sends a charge through whatever tip is attached to it (used for soldering for the most part). But honestly they tend to sit on my tool bench where I work on house projects. I rarely use them when hobbying as my hands just aren't steady enough not to likely wreck anything small I'd use them on.

Does anybody make dungeon maps (of 

5x5 foot squares)  deliberately in pieces?  So you can place the dungeon out one room at a time?

 

 

Sort of. I cut out a bunch of different shapes from cardboard, covered them in hex paper and then covered that in clear contact paper. Then I'll pre-draw potential encounter locations like long narrow alleys, market squares, dungeon rooms and hallways, and so on. The contact paper works just like the vinyl wet erase mats so I can reuse them over and over again with different scenes drawn on them. They work pretty well for when you don't want your players to know what's on the other side of the door. Just toss down a new room when they get it open. They also work great for running combat in cities. The team moves to the end of the street? Fine, just move everything down a bit and add another tile to the end of the map.

Yes, a Dremel was always a part of my arsenal for working with metal figures.  It is not as useful for Bones.  For sculpting, it was absolutely essential.  Now I have upgraded it to a Foredom SR tool, which has much tighter tolerances and accuracy, and gives amazing control.  I use it mostly for jewelry applications, but it also cleans my resin prints and stuff.

 

Does an airbrush count as a power tool? If so, I have a couple of those as well.

A dremel, a very nice little variable speed drill, a soldering iron... also one of those static grass arranger thingies that I really can't get the hang of.

I've actually used a power drill and power sander on occasion. I know I had a dremel that I've never used, but now that I'd rather like to, I have no idea where it is...

 

For those interested in Cosplay videos, I recommend those put up on YouTube by Mineralblu - he's nice enough to actually label who the cosplay is of, where it's from, and how to follow the cosplayer. It's nice for those of us who may not know everything about pop-culture...

While I have a dremel, I haven't used it in ages.  Bought it for case modding, used it a fair bit back then, and then it's pretty much sat in the pack ever since.  It's a useful tool, but I prefer working on minis by hand. 

 

Micro-Mark has so many tempting devices though. Maybe when I get a house...

      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
