As I'm sure is true for many zooarchers, my work very often involves
taking samples for various analyses: 14C, isotopes, aDNA, ZooMS...
I'm getting a little tired of begging and borrowing rotary drills from
specialist colleagues, so I've decided it's time to bite the bullet and
buy my own equipment. Does anyone on here have any advice about specific
makes and models? I'll be using it for lots of sheep and goat in the
first instance, but I also work with everything from cattle to cod. Most
people seem to use Dremmel rotary tools, but I see that they have quite
a wide range of types and prices (both for the drill itself and for the
blades/bits) and I'd be grateful for any advice on what I should be
looking for as a general bone-cutting tool.
Bear in mind this will be my own cash, so I'm looking for a reasonably
priced option rather than necessarily the best available. It also needs
to be pretty portable.
Thanks in advance,
