A Rotary Tool Set at a Bargain Price!


In my never-ending quest across the Internet to find some interesting things, sometimes I stumble across things that seem too good to be true.  Honestly, sometimes they are "too good to be true", but other times I find things that are pretty amazing.  The bad news?  Often times I waste some hard earned cash, but when you hit a home run... well there's no better feeling.

This post is one of those posts about a winner.  If you are a dentist or a hobbyist that likes to make artsy-craftsy kind of things, this is something you'll be interested in.  Dentistry requires things that are sometimes tiny and unfortunately that can only be sold to a limited market.  This means that the markup on dental items can be significant simply because there is not a huge demand for those products.   Unfortunately there are about 150,000 dentists in the U.S. and not all of them are going to buy a specifica product.  That means the markup has to be significant.

However, sometimes you can find something that is from a different market that can be used in a dental setting.  As you can see by the picture above, this is a great toolkit for dental lab work.  There are lots of applications such as removable prosthetics and model work that require these kind of lab tools.

I remember once seeing a catalogue of dental lab gear where an acrylic bur was something like $27.50  That's a pretty steep price for something designed to trim plastic.

The kit above has been in my office for about 6 months and has certainly proven itself over that time.  It has 227 pieces.  Here is what the retailer has to say:

What do rotary tools have in common with fashionistas? Yes, it really is all about accessorizing.
