Topic: OT: Cutting with Dremel type tools (8 msgs / 84 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
Hi,
People sometimes talk about cutting holes in roasters, bean coolers, etc.,
with their Dremel tools. Question: what sort of bit do you use for these
tasks? What are they called,and what do they look like?
Thanks,
Brian

Carbide wheel is what I use.  Cuts most anything (missing my eyebrow and
left ear presently), and easy to control...
I've used it on my drum, on similar metal projects, as well as on some wood
and plastics as needed...

Brian,
It really depends on what you want to cut ... they have a bit for everything
including drill bits ... my friend has a complete set of diamond cutting
bits.

I used the carbide wheels to reshape portions of brick flooring and the
sanding drums for mating corners of baseboard.

Ok, good, carbide wheel. I've looked that up and see what it should look
like. Thanks for the help.

Brian,
I have done most of the mods  with those thin little cutting disks. You 
have to be careful with them because they are delicate (always wear 
safety glasses!), but they are tough on stainless steel.
You get an arbor with a screw in the end, and the disks come in a little 
tube of 50? or so. They are about an inch in diameter.
Lately I picked up a 'nibbler' hand tool at Radio Shack.. can't wait to 
use it!

Still no rain for over a month now, here in LHC.

Thanks for all the replies on this (off) topic. Expanded my understanding
quite a lot.
