I haven't actually done this yet, as I didn't do a lot of carves last year. I got away with using old gemmys and real kins. Unfortunately, this year I'm going to have to start this to get through the gemmys I have.

I tossed a light in there, but it wasn't nearly powerful enough. Then I watched your video again and noticed the cord going inside. What kind of bulb are you putting in there to get that light out and do you have any fear of it melting the foam/burning down your house?

Yup...for the video I used a drop light with a 25 watt bulb and my shop was completely dark.

Doh Used your Setup today and worked Great !

I took my Drill turned it upside down, and placed it in my vise.

The only Issues was on my end,

a) Needed a new extension rod.
The bottom was smoothed out and was slipping in the chuck.

Sears - Craftsman 10 bucks, problem solved.

b) Need to pick up a LED bulb, (or Light) only had normal bulbs
and when the dust hit it, it blew out. :)

Used Doh's Setup again for a custom carve.

WORKS LIKE A CHAMP !

Because I already have A Bunch of Clip Lights,
I Bought these Bulbs for the Line removal.
(They now come in the Mini screw size)

They stay Cool and are Bright, and Plug In. ;)

Image


After I removed the Lines, I gave the Bulb a Shot of air from my air-compressor.
Ready for the Next one.

Ya Know Doh;

I was thinking about this, and then I backed Down,

I just don't want to spend the Money, and these Lines may disappear from the kins Next year.
Then I'd be stuck with this.

But Here's a Great Idea, if you have a Bench Grinder, You can Convert one side, and Add a Drill Chuck. Then your extension rod / Paint stripper wheel.

The Other Side still used to sharpen Shit. :grin:

Example:

I picked up two Gemmy's last night and got my drill set up when I realized that the whole thing would be better and safer with my variable speed pedal attached! Worked sweet...slow when I needed it....fast when it counted....off when safety was a concern.

...if you have the right setup.

I mounted my new adjustable speed drill to the wood top of my workbench using grabber screws and some metal plumbers tape.
Image

I then attached my trusty extension rod and stripper wheel.
Image

I dropped my handy dandy led light into the pumpkin.
Image

Plugged in the drill, shut off the overhead light, slid the pumpkin over the stripper wheel and in no time at all I had no lines. Best of all you can control it with both hands and you only take off what you need to because you are looking through the skin of the kin the whole time.

When I get time I will upload a video.


What model is your LED light, looking for a good one to use that puts off some good light.
