Oh ok...go for it....

I had a LOT of callous build up on the bottom of my feet that was starting to annoy the living crap out of me. I decided it was time to do something about it. I chucked up a stone wheel in my cordless dremel and got to work. I spent almost an hour grinding off the callouses. I figured I am "pretty good" with a flex shaft, this should be no big deal. Even if I grind all the way through to the meat, it'll heal, not like my work.

I bet I wear a size smaller shoe now. I bet they were close to a 1/4 inch thick in places.

Now my feet are all pink and shiny instead of dirty gray....LOL

Time to put my shoes and socks back on!

36 grit!

Somehow I knew the word "Dremel" was going to come up. The vet gives my dogs pedicures this way. Smells really good too.

Nice handi work T0G

I run my dog on the hard packed gravel......works good too....(she bites her nails if they get too long....it is a riot)

my sister and mom use a dremel for their dogs too, you should have seen the bite marks all over my mom's arm when she caught the hair on one of her dogs feet.... (that dog was fricking mean anyhow, just looking for a reason to bite you)

That reminded me of two things:
Anthony Hopkins grinding his toenails down for a date in The World's Fastest Indian

and

The old SNL skit when the Reagan's were complaining about all the "old hard, thick, yellow toenails stuck in the carpet" in Jimmy Carter's grandma's room at the Whitehouse.

There were probably easier ways to adjust that too-low seat.

hmmmmmm, double check the settings, none of ours do (6 computers)
I don't mind the banner adds but they do use up bandwidth, and you know......we ARE running out...
(at least until we get the population reduction IMMINENT with a pandemic!)

oooh like the way I worked that in?
