I had a request for a description of the "dremel-like" machine I was using to file down my nails, well, here it is. There is nothing fancy about it, just an old high-speed drilling machine with different tools to insert into the chuck. The 2 upper tools are the ones I use, and the one on the top does 90 % of the work, the other one is just for the last piece of the nail close to the cuticle.

It has adjustable speed, normally I start out on slow speed and increase it slightly when I get into it (and bored). It is a tedious process but I recommend doing one foot and maybe the other one the next day, or your back may start to hurt and you will not be too thorough anymore....

I would say any similar machine will do, for example the cheap ones off ebay since it requires no engine power or super speed. Get for example the one on http://www.ebay.com/itm/DREMEL-400-XPR-Rotary-Tool-With-Accessories-And-Paperwork-New-Exec-Condition-/160802040751?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25708c6baf  or try maybe this one, even cheaper: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Cordless-Rotary-Tool-40pc-Kit-Dremel-Tool-Bits-Fit-Dog-Nail-Groomer-Grinder-/170843162711?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27c70bc857

If you get just any tool and it does not carry the suitable sanding tips you see in the pic (the top one the most important one, it also works just fine without the pointy tip, you can use a cylinder-shaped one), just go to your local hardware store and ask for dremel acessories and they will most likely have a big shelf with them. They are expensive, but only one is not expensive...

There you go, good luck. =)

  1. The spambot poster "Jimi" who links to yet another zetaclear scam website have been deleted. Among all the similar vinegar-and-water stuff that is being sold, none is being marketed more aggressively with spambots and fake websites than zetaclear.

  5. Slim -- weight --- reviews.com fungin --- ixreviews.org, volumep --- illsreviews.com are also websites that use spambots. Now deleting comments to this post from these spambots.

    Splitting up their website addresses as adviced by the good Lee so they won't get extra google hits. Oh I wish they would become honorable humans and get a real job.

    1. Bear with me-I am about to get a little bit scientific here, but I find this to be an exciting way to combat fungus without using harsh chemicals.Dermal Therapy Fungistop Reviews
