Couldn' t help but thinking of this song [0:48sec / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XV0G7AtQYw] while writing this:

how deep do you carve ?

I am talking about the orange areals => how much of the kins do you take away?

Best regards,
Shodan, the pumpkinman :grin:
I take the first 1/8" off with high speed cutters. Then I turn down the lights...put a light in the kin and use the aluminum oxide stones to get to finished depth.

Thanks Doh.

Funkins, drills, and cutters have arrived. Order for the Dremel 4000 is placed. I hope it'll be delivered by the weekend.

I know you posted the link to dollar tree for the clips lights but it's saying it's out of stock, any other suggestions?
