Happened once. That was more than enough to catch my attention and realize to NEVER forget a hair tie again! lol! Now it's the first thing that I grab before setting up for the nail clipping marathons. That and eye protection. Another difficult lesson learned and one that was just simply out of being impatient.

|Blanketback||LOL! I'm so relieved to see I'm not the only one who had the great fun of unwinding my mangled hair from the tip. What a laugh and a half that was. Not.|

Yeah, that's a very unpleasant lesson to learn the hard way!! It's just hard to remember everything when you first start getting it all set up and ready to go. I had everything perfect, the dog ready, got them used to the sound and feeling.... but, I missed that step.... it was a painful experience ! lol!
So yes... OP, definitely remember your hair too!

Yes, need to remember to tie the hair back lol. I odered both the dremel and the flex shaft. I am excited for it to come and try it out.
I printed the information on how to properly use a drumel as well! Great thing to have on hand : )
Everything should arrive by the 10th!

|Discoetheque||Also, be sure to keep your own hair out of the way...lol, either tied back or just keep your head a safe distance away from the Dremel when it's running. It's WHOLLY unpleasant to have to unwind (or cut) your own hair out of the wheel, and far less enjoyable even to have a small clump yanked out.|

Btw, the information posted by other members above from Doberdawn's website is incredibly helpful!! I read over that page probably a million times before and after starting with using the dremel.
And I definitely agree with keeping any hairs away! Although we have no long coats here, we still use the pantyhose trick. Slide the nail through the end of pantyhose (like a sock going over their paws). The hair stays in and the nail comes cleanly out. Easy to work with.

Yes, it will get hot. Just use common sense, check the wheel after every foot and stop if it gets TOO hot. I find that I can get through one dog without it heating up too much, unless it's a big dog with a LOT of nail to grind off. What I usually do is clip the nails first, then use the dremel to round them off. Doing it this way, I haven't had a problem.
If you're going to be dremeling several dogs at a time, you can dunk the wheel in cold water or rubbing alcohol to cool it quickly.

Another thanks, Freestep that looks great. But they mention it getting hot - and I thought this was the reason to use the sanding bands rather than those grinding stones. What's you opinion on that?
I second the flex shaft attachment, it's so helpful. One thing to remember is to keep long hair tied up and away from the tip. What a snarly mess, otherwise. How do I know this? Duh....

|Discoetheque||Thank you for the link to the diamond carbide wheel, Freestep. I'll definitely be purchasing one of those.|
