ROFL! Same set I got! :-)
John Heisz has a quick tip for repurposing a carbide-tipped masonry drill for this purpose http://www.ibuildit.ca/Workshop%20Projects/Shop%20Tricks/tricks-56.html I picked up a couple little diamond wheels for my Dremel to try this.
Yes, if all you want is a marking gauge, go buy one. This one is a quality tool that will last decades, offers ample opportunity for customizing to your exact preferences and needs, gives you something useful to do with a bunch of hardwood offcuts and is an excellent skill building exercise at making precise things with your tools that will translate to greater skill at woodworking. AND you end up with a beautiful, bespoke marking gauge at the end!Buying THAT in a store is not possible.
Looks great! Actually I should say "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! It's A Light!!!!!" :-)
The only problem with tripling your tool storage space is that you then quadruple your tools :-)
I'm guessing that all that needs to be done with the Arduino or 555 controller to drive higher-voltage motors is to use the controller circuit to drive some suitable transistors? I have a beefy 90VDC motor from a treadmill I want to repurpose into a lathe drive. Using a PWM controller should let me connect it directly to the shaft since it's max rpm is higher than what I need for the lathe.
