    Hi Ruth. It certainly is possible to see a photo. I'll take a shot
    and send as soon as possible, off-list.

    This is very good advice, and I should have mentioned it in my
    original post. Since I usually use thicker material than will fit
    into the "collet" of a quick-change handpiece, I errantly assumed
    everyone interested would use the size I recommended in the "chuck"
    of the #30. I don't think the Foredom quick-change handpiece's
    collet is replaceable by the average user, and one of these tools
    will surely ruin it.
