I Wish I Had Stock — Another Edition

March 28, 2010

I have always used a Dremel to trim nails.  Unfortunately, the darned batteries get “over-charged” and then won’t hold a charge that lasts for more than one dog (and it better be a dog that holds still).  So, I started looking for an option.  The Pet-i-cure and Dremel’s pet nail grinder don’t rotate at a high enough speed.  What I found is the Dremel Stylus.  It has a Lithium Ion battery, fully charges in two to three hours, stops charging when it is at maximum, and holds the charge for two years (I wouldn’t know that yet because I’ve only had it for a month).  The rpm is variable from 5,000 to 25,000, and the on/off control is at the front.

It’s very light weight and can be held like a pencil — or you can use the pistol grip.  Since it arrived, we’ve been making short work of nails — and the dogs don’t complain nearly as much as they did with the old one.  Amazon had the best price I found (about $70 with no shipping cost).

. . . I wish I had stock . . .

    Hmmm….Creel has started his birthday list yet, but maybe he should. Thanks for the idea!
