It seems every time I grab my Dremel it's to use the cut-off. I've got loads of other attachments, but it's almost always the cut off I go to when I grab my Dremel. What's your favorite use?
Lightly grinding the surface over the tiny rivet pins on the timer lever, to find center to drill down, insert pin punch, and remove those pesky little levers.
Dental work. Never thought of using it in the garage. Whoopee!
I keep three handy at my work table. One has the cut-off wheel, one has the grindstone, and one has the stainless wire brush. They all come in handy quite often. Strictly speaking, I don't use any Dremel. These are the Sears version, rebuilt, which I bought at the Sears repair shop for about $20 each.
Dan and Steve: I have used the Dremel brand for about 25 or 30 years in the Office Equipment Business and they are invaluable. For grinding polishing or just about any thing you can mention. I have one of the fancy jobs with the flex cable. There is one at my Son's store for copier and typewriter and other repair work. You just cannot put a value on them for the jobs they do.
Oh Steve did you get the Roof finished before the snow flew? Hope the blue tarp is gone. I also see I have been upstaged by some other fellow visiting your spread.
Take guys and have a great week coming up

I sharpen the chainsaw !!!
I smoothed a broken tooth once when I could not get into the dentist.
Wayne, me too.
Bill, the upper roof is all done. Now I'm waiting for the roofers to come and put Duro-Last on the porch roof, then I'll finish that upstairs front wall and put some windows in it. For now I'm sleeping under two electric blankets, three regular blankets, a big thick comforter, a dog, and a couple of cats. Even when it's in the twenties upstairs, I'm toasty.
I love my Dremel. Use it for rust and corrosion removal and polishing on smaller parts and do use the cut-off from time to time.
I have the Lith - Ion 10.8v battery operated Dremel that has pushed
all my corded versions to the back of the shelf. It has a miniature
magneto accessory that screws on to the front, powering ledís that
provide a work light in those dark corners under the sinks.
(doing some plumbing with Poly B / PEX and you can nip thru the
clamp rings without damaging the fittings) The faster the rpm,
the brighter the ledís.
And the truth is, I'm actually using a Chinese knock-off. It was a kit I paid $7.95 for at Harbor Freight close to 12 years ago. The tool and like 70 attachments. I use it regularly and it hasn't failed me yet.
The only other tools from HF that has lasted so long is my torque wrench and 20 ton press. I've had and used both of those for more than 20 years. Although not nearly as long often as the chinese dremel.
Dremel is good.But I use the Ryobi 1's I have 3 that I use alot.Mostly the carbide cutters and such when i weld up some small something and need to get it ground back down.Without them I would not be able to fix half the stuff I do.
I use a sanding drum on my dremel to trim my 125 lb. dog's toe nails, it is fast and smooth.
I clean horseradish with a brass wheel before I grind it.
