Old New Toy

Cast Iron Crosses with and without nails and Rotary Tool
I asked Hubby and my Brother how I could cut a nail off the back of some cast iron crosses.  After studying the crossing they were stumped as to how I could cut the nail and leave a smooth back.  They said I needed a small saw or drill which they did not have.  That's when the light bulb lit in my head.  I remembered that I had a Dremel that could probably do the job.  The Dremel is a small rotary electric tool used for carving, engraving, routing, grinding, sharpening, cutting, cleaning, polishing and sanding.  Now my problem was learning how to use it.  You see, when I bought the Dremel three years ago, the Quick Start Book did not make any sense.  I did not understand the directions on how to use it. So the Dremel with Case was stored in the tool shed until now.   I stayed up all night reading and re-reading the directions.  Looking at pictures and reading over and over again.  Finally a small screw in a picture caught my eye.  It finally made sense.  So, here's the picture of the Dremel and some crosses with and without the nail.  I love this Dremel, it is my old, new toy.
