A Dremel tool is the all-in-one tool for jobs around the house, such as cutting dry wall, removing grout, scraping, sanding and polishing. The Dremel includes attachments in kits or purchased separately. Many attachments serve the needs for artisans, crafters, and the do-it-yourself repair person. The varieties of attachments include bits that saw, grind and engrave.
Most Dremel accessories, especially the cutting and sanding tools, attach to a mandrel which fastens the attachment to the Dremel tool. Some mandrels are interchangeable while other attachments require a specific mandrel. Mandrels generally sell for under £3.
Use the PL400 planer attachments to release stuck doors and on most wood, including particleboard. The planer attachment is the one tool you need for any projects requiring flattening or smoothing with less work than using a regular plane.
Dremel offers a variety of attachments that match nearly any project you have in mind. One is the 545 diamond wheel, a small wheel coated with diamond particles that make it handy for cutting hard materials. The diamond wheel cuts marble, hard wood, glass and ceramics. The diamond wheel is also a carving tool, handy for carving wood.
The 409 15/16 cutting wheels, used for trimming and grooving most light materials such as thin wood and plastics, are also handy to cut rusted bolts and screws, allowing easy removal. The tool cuts only on its edge and comes in a 36-count package. Use this attachment with a light touch; most projects require slow speeds.
Sanding Band Attachments
Sanding bands often come in packages of six. The 445 1/2-inch 240-grit aluminum oxide sanding band is the attachment to use when smoothing wood and removing rust. Sanding bands are circular with a choice of 240-grit, 120-grit or 60-grit.
Use sanding contour tools with the 6048 sanding contour-eight piece set that includes convex, concave and angling bits for projects requiring just the right shape. Customise shapes by combining rotary and sanding tools.
The 675 lawnmower and garden tool sharpener lets you sharpen your lawnmower, shovel and axes with ease. Use the sharpening attachment for walk-behind mowers, which includes a handy guide and a sanding tool.
Purchase the Dremel sharpening kit that includes the 675 lawnmower sharpener to hone chainsaw blades and any lawnmower blades. The chainsaw attachment includes a good guide for correctly cutting angles.
