One of the toys that Santa brought me this year is a Black & Decker RTX-B 3 Speed RTX Rotary Tool and I am glad he did. I have already put this handy tool to work on a repair I am doing to an old single barrel shotgun.
Of course I didn’t bother to read the directions, just got the Black and Decker rotary tool out of the box, plugged it in and went to work grinding, and it worked perfectly.
Push Button Operation
Thankfully, the Black and Decker Rotary Tool is very intuitive to use, not difficult to figure out at all. The push button operation is easy to use and changing tools and grinding papers etc is very easy. I was very impressed.
All Kinds Of Uses
Today I figured I would read the directions and literature that came with the rotary tool. I figured if it could do what I wanted without me reading the instructions, imagine what it will do if I know what it is capable of doing. I was pleasantly surprised to discover all the jobs you can do with one of these rotary tools.
The Black and Decker Rotary Tool does a lot of things. It cuts, sands, grinds, carves, cleans, polishes, engraves, sharpens, and drills, and it does it all quickly and easily with a flip-lock spindle lock system for quick easy accessory changes.
The Black and Decker Rotary Tool features a high-torque motor for twice the power and torque of the leading competitor and it has 3 speeds (12,000, 24,000, and 30,000 RPM) and a separate speed dial. Very easy to figure out and use.
In my case I have recently put a new wooden stock on an old shotgun. The new stock was kind of a “one size fits all” item, which means, although it more or less fits, you need to make some adjustments to get it to fit properly. The Black and Decker Rotary Tool made grinding and sanding the edges very easy and helped me make a great fit.
Now that I have the shotgun almost finished, I am looking around for some other projects that will give me opportunity to use my new Black and Decker Rotary Tool.
Can’t Do Without It Now
I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those tools that once you have one, you wonder how you ever managed to do anything without it. I am looking around now for a belt holster for it, I think this is something I want to carry with me all the time, like a pocket knife. I can see where this will pay for itself quickly around the camp, where there is always something needing a repair.
Along with multiple uses and ease of operation, this Black and Decker Rotary Tool is not expensive to own, in fact, considering what you will be able to do with it, I think it’s a real bargain and a tool you cannot afford not to own.
