Dremel Modding Tool

16 posts in this topic

ive now created quite a long list of mods to do now, and the majority of them require or advise the use of a dremel tool

on the mods that i have done so far i have tried to get around this (using other tools) however with the car being in the condition it is i wonder whether it would be easier and far neater to do it properly the first time, than mess it up trying to bodge it with the wrong tools

my question is, having never used a dremel or seen 1 can anyone advise on what to buy?

its on my list but ive no idea what im buying

cheers :)

Machine Mart do one thats made by Clarke that takes Dremel attachments.

Great bit of kit if its used properly.

I use one for polishing the ports up on heads when they are off, and various other jobs.

On plastic use at low speed or it will melt the plastic rather than sand it to shape.

dony buy a cheap replacement - some just dont have enough power to cut through butter

i've tried the halfords one and the lidl ones and they are poor

dremel all the way for me - look out for argos offers!

Agree with Sal above, I've had a few poor cheap ones, and a mid range one, but none can match the torque or speed of the dremel,,,, more expensive but think of it like the de-walt of the multi tool world.

I like the idea of cordless ones but they're a tad pricey for the occasional use.

excellent, yh im not fond of cordless myself, have to check on what batteries are/arent charged, you just know it wont be charged when ya need it

is it worth practicing with it on different materials, or is using it quite straight forward?

A little bit of time on practice will never be wasted!!

Other than that, the usual "measure twice, cut once"

They are useful little tools.

I have had a cheap and nasty Fake Dremel for about 5 years , 5 speed corded , it has never let me down and is very powerfull. For the occaisional use it is perfect for the job. Cost me less than £20

just remember to wear safety glasses when using this tool, the amount of times the cutting wheels has shattered is unreal.

I would seriously consider the corded rather than battery. Battery may appear convenient initially, but what about when it drains in the middle of a job? Batterys will eventually need replacing aswell and you always have full torque available when needed with a mains powered unit.
