Turning a foam popper head

Recommended Posts

Wow, I had tried just using a nail for a mandrel and seems like they always bend on me. Is that what you used?

Looks like a jeweler's file worked well, hadn't thought of that.  I have been using sand papaer on a dowel for some shapes too.

Thank for the tips

Thanks Flyman,


Maybe I got a little heavy hand with my try at nails as a mandrel. The other thing I was thinking, I was trying to hand hold the dremel which means more wobble from both hands.

Yeah that small family of files ia all the same basically, I just grew up with a father that was a jeweler.
