Guys the fellow that lives next door to my builds and fly rc aircraft and I mean big ones.  Anyway I was over watching him do some maintaince on one of his plane and ask him for 2 or 3 inches of his fuel line.  He ask why and I told him I would use is to make some bugs, when he gave me the line he told me if I could make a bug out of the fuel line he would eat it.  Two days later I was back with these two and told his to be careful when you bite into them they had hooks it them.

Andy- you are correct buddy-- my fault for calling them the wrong name;  im use to the type of slang language we used at work I guess!!

I should have addressed Carl with the question. Online communication is wonderful except when it's not...

Andy, sorry; thanks for clarifying when I saw the question mark I thought you had a question.

For sharpening  the 10" Wet Grinder Kit - Anniversary Edition at grizzly.com is on sale for 159.99 a good price if you don't already have one.

Mark - I know what they are. I was following up with Carl's use of the term. It sounds like he may have meant cotter pin and I was just clarifying.

Comment by Andy is OptiMystic on April 3, 2015 at 7:27am

"carter key" = cotter pin?

I have also done that with a small dowel for sanding inside whistle bores.

Allen- these are heavy duty rotary bits like Andy says;; we used them for metal removal in welding phases;; they produce very sharp ; small piceses of metal; looks a lot like glitter as you use it;; caution is very strongly advised using these!  another good way of sharpening  those cases;; very simple and easy is;; get a carter key and some sandpaper. cut the sandpaper about 2 inches wide; insert it into the carter key; put into a electric drill;; let it turn slow;; allowing the s, paper to wrap around itself;; then into the casing for sharping.  would take only a minute that way;; much easier;; definitly safer than those burr bits!!!!!!!!

They are rotary tool bits. I do some rotary carving and have a hanging motor rotary tool with adjustable speed. I would likely use it for initial bevel creation, but only at slow speed and with glasses. Be sure you have the cartridge secured. One of my rules of safety for hand held tools is that either the workpiece or the tool should be hand held but not both. But you could easily use a file or hone if you have one small enough and do it without power (or blood) in under 5 minutes.

Those look like Dremel bits

Comment by Andy is OptiMystic on April 3, 2015 at 2:44am

I have a little ceramic honing rod for gouges that I could easily sharpen cartridges with.
