It’s almost October, which means Halloween’s approaching quickly. When you were a kid, Halloween was all about the costumes. As an adult, it’s all about the parties. And of all the holidays — save, maybe, Christmas — Halloween seems to demand the most elaborate decorations and parties.
But no matter how elaborate the decorations, they mean exactly squat if you don’t have an exquisitely-carved pumpkin. Well, Dremel’s here to help. This year they’re again offering their cordless pumpkin carving kit — an inexpensive, battery-powered, two-speed rotary tool complete with bit, instructions, and even templates.
Not that you’ll use the templates, mind you. Sure, it’s only going to last for a week or so, but that’s no excuse not to exercise some true art. Let the kids make a simple face while you try out something much more complex — like scenery complete with 3D shading created from the shadows cast by the candle. Seriously, try it!
We’ll see if we can’t scare up some artistic guides before the big day for you.
In the meantime… The kit’s tool runs of AA batteries so it doesn’t require a charger. It operates at two speeds: 6,000 and 12,000 RPM. And, it comes with a #191 high-speed cutter, which Dremel says is the best for the job.
The whole kit streets for right around $20.
