    Mongo’s setup, complete with custom lamp. :) The flex shaft attachment really makes it lovely to use. It would be a terrible pain if it had to be packed away every time.

    Re: Dremel Tool

    We have one that hangs in the toy/model cabinet permanently. It has a flex shaft attachment, to there’s no need to hang on to the tool itself.
