Reading through the tips, all are super..going back to the fixing a carving whilst working on it (instead of using feet & hands) I read people use work benches but has anyone a scissor jack if you know what I mean?

Hello, I've been chainsaw carving for 3 years now and I've completed 15 pieces. I've found a dremmel style rotary tool very helpful for detailing, but it struggles. I've noticed some carvers use die grinders, can anyone tell me about the difference please? Thanks.

Do you mean compressor powered ones? I use one a bit, great for losing chains Mark's but can leave a bit rough finish if your not careful.

They're basically the bigger versions of dremel. Air tool versions are only worthwhile if you have a huge compressor otherwise you'll be stopping every five minutes to build air pressure.
Corded are your cheapest option and then you have battery ones.
Personal experience of makita and milwaukee are good
Use Saburr bits and eye tools in mine.
