We are so grateful that the summer is over. Every time summer camp ends we find something that can be improved for the next season. This year we realized that our walkie talkies kept getting confused with other camp centers’ walkie talkies… this is because the camp as whole has purchased the walkie talkies in bulk and programmed them so each camp center can speak to one another by switching to designated channels. But this means they look identical to every other camp centers’ walkie talkies. At the beginning of the summer we tried spray painting the walkie talkie belt clips blue in order to easily identify our walkies form other peoples. But the blue paint did not fair well. So we decided that the best way to keep our electronics safe is engraving them. If you want to easily keep your electronics safe, I have a tool for you: the Dremel Micro.
I love that this Dremel is light-weight (read: no hand fatigue), cordless, and has a halo light built-in (that used to be an optional accessory you could purchase.) Plus you can just throw it on the base to charge it, which means you can leave the base plugged in on your work table and your Dremel Micro is ready right when you need it.
For the walkies we simply took a sharpie and drew the ID we wanted (in this case “HS#”) and then used the Dremel to engrave directly over the sharpie lines. Easy engraving to keep your electronics safe and sound.
I have had a long love affair with Dremel tools. So when my husband and I were married (11 years ago – wait, what?!) we received a BUNCH of Home Depot gift cards and the first thing we bought? A Dremel. It is so useful for so many things – DIY projects, sharpening knives and scissors, cleaning, polishing… so we knew we needed one. We also got all the accessories, cuz you never know what you will need to complete a project (idk if they sell this exact set anymore, like I said, we got married a few years ago):
Here’s the good thing – the awesome new Dremel Micro 8050 is fully compatible with all Dremel rotary tool accessories. Way to go Dremel, now I have an awesome lighted little tool and allthe accessories already. Get yours at Amazon or HomeDepot.
